Articles about Rashid Khan | Page 2

From a refugee camp in Peshawar to being one of the most sought-after cricketers of his time, Rashid Khan’s cricketing story is one for ages. There are not many players who can boast the skill set of Khan. He took the cricket world by storm when he made his international debut for Afghanistan in an ODI against Zimbabwe at the age of 17. Although a leg-spinner by trade, Khan’s bowling cannot be categorized as conventional leg-spin. His ability to keep the batsmen on their toes with his pace, stump-to-stump line, and googlies is reminiscent of his idol Shahid Afridi. In 2018, ICC named him the Associate Cricketer of the year. He made his Test debut against India in 2018. Khan’s rise to stardom is closely connected to the popularization of T20 leagues around the world. After making his debut in the IPL for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2017, he never looked back. His ability to contribute with the bat down the order and agility as a fielder made his value skyrocket.
