Warnie isn't talking to him, but Khan sure as hell is talking about himself to SuperSport:
"I had gone for trials to every part of my state Uttar Pradesh but without success. Even until a few days ago, nobody knew me. I used to play at the Azad Maidan in Mumbai and just hoped to keep on doing the hard work. I had just one pair of clothes for trials and torn shoes. I used to buy platform tickets and spend the nights there when travelling to attend trial camps as I did not have money to book hotel rooms. I often used to bowl on an empty stomach or a meal of tea and biscuits."
It's almost like a feel-good movie. Or a cricketing version of Slumdog.
What an extraordinary rise for this boy. His life has taken a permanent turn to the better side of things, and (wait for it) all because of the IPL. What a great find he is.
Kamran Khan has a great bowling action. It's almost as good as Sohail Tanvir's, who's more of a slingshot than anything else. Khan gets down really low and does something similar to Tanvir, only it looks more legitimate. What is it with the Rajasthan Royals and picking bowlers who have an extraordinary arm action?
It's the only photo of him I could find. What a mystery.
