Left handed Indian great Yuvraj Singh has Jammu and Kashmir young fast bowler Rasikh Salam is going to emerge as a special player in the next two to three years.   “Rasikh swung the ball in the nets, that is why the boys wanted to play him. He got hit for a six and four in the last two balls. Other than that, he bowled well,” said the elegant left hander           “I think he did fantastic for his first match in terms of handling the pressure. Pretty much like an international game. I feel he is going to be special in the next 2-3 years,”Yuvraj, who scored a half-century on his debut match for the Mumbai Indians against Delhi Capitals, said.   Mumbai Indians bowling coach Shane Bond also praised Salam, saying he was one of better bowlers for the team during its IPL opener against Delhi.   “It was a challenging start but as I said in the pre-camp, things are going to go wrong at times. You are going to bowl a no-ball but the easy thing for Rasikh to do would have been to go to pieces but he certainly didn’t. I thought he showed great composure and was one of our better bowlers,” said the coach.   Bond also said Salam has the hunger to learn.           Zaheer Khan, who is Mumbai’s Director of Cricket Operations, said Salam is an exciting young prospect who has great temperament.   “Even Rohit Sharma is impressed with Rasikh. He was thinking of giving him an opportunity as early in the season as possible, so exciting times ahead,” said Zaheer.
