    You heard it hear. From his first class averages & record .... the predictions are that this guy will be the next big thing from West Indies.

    http://www.cricinfo.com/ci/content/player/52334.html

    From an article;
    Imran Khan.
    Just turned 25 and still developing, he’s Windies’ best spinner.
    Prediction: he will become the allrounder that cricket historians are referring to when they say ”Imran Khan”.
    F-c averages: 27.67 with one century and four 50s, and 67 wickets at 17.27 each!

    matey Imran Khan was more than a player he was a leader and had an eye for pickin up talents. I dont see anybody filling his boots in the near future

    That's some impressive figures already but I cant see him becoming too big a name. Especially given the fact that he's only played 17 games by the age of 25.

    Well best of luck to him.

    But West Indies is probably the only cricket nation which is in deeper mess than Pakistan. We know they have the talent but somehow they never come through because of incompetent cricket board.

    West Indies have the potential to be up there with the best, they have the batting line up for sure. It's the bowling in recent times which has let them down, they haven't really recovered from the loss of Ambrose and Walsh.

    I agree, but we do see talented fast bowlers time and again in West Indies side but they never seem to last more than couple of years. Fidel Edawards, Tino Best, Collymore and countless others.

    I have always liked the West Indies team I believe they have some talented players but like the situation in Pakistan the West Indies set up is flawed. Once both nations have a professional set up then you will see some tough competition from these sides in the near future

    I thinks the hype is all about his name same as Imrans, Though its not impossible to stand up2 Imran Khan but its seems bit stupid to compare him with Khan at early stages of his career..

    He does seem a very decent allrounder

    Ohh I remember this chap, he played on the Windies A tours in 2010...that was the same series I first noticed Andre Russell and thought he could be a lethal allrounder
