Pakistan's all-rounder Shadab Khan is having an impressive run in the ongoing Major League Cricket (MLC) in the USA. 

Shadab, while representing San Francisco Unicorns, has taken five wickets in as many matches so far. 

From the latest match against Texas Super Kings (TSK), one of Shadab's wickets went viral on social media.

The right-arm leggie bowled a perfect google which pitched outside leg and pinged the top of off in no time. Striker Mitchell Santner had no clue to this delivery and walked off straight away. 

TSK chased down last 80 with five balls remaining to win the contest against Shadab's team.

Shadab's 61-run knock was laced with four boundaries and five maximums.
