Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan said that he would get married only after his country won the first ICC Cricket World Cup title. At an early age, Rashid Khan has managed to break many bowling records and is currently the number one T20 bowler. The 21-year-old has not only participated in both the 50-over and T20 World Cups for Afghanistan, but his presence in the team has helped the side immensely.
In an interview with Azadi Radio, Rashid said, “I will engage in cricket world after winning Afghanistan.” Rashid is the youngest captain to represent a Test match last year when Afghanistan defeated Bangladesh. The best 6/49 statistics of Rashid’s career brought Afghanistan a memorable victory. While leading Afghanistan for the first time in Tests, Rashid led from the front, while scoring 51 runs with the bat and scored in the match with an excellent performance of 11/104. In the end, the team defeated Bangladesh by a margin of 224 runs.
With this, he is only the fourth cricketer in the history of cricket to have taken 5 wickets and scored more than 50 runs in his captaincy debut.
Rashid has been away from competitive cricket since March. He has not played a match since the Ireland series, which took place in India. He was scheduled to return to India again in a week to represent Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League 2020, but the league was currently suspended due to the outbreak of a coronovirus epidemic. Rashid has taken a total of 296 wickets in T20.
