Getting success is one thing, but maintaining it can be another move altogether – especially for a young player in the age of saturation coverage and depth analysis. But Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan, who was still a teenager in the beginning of 2018, not only kept his unprecedented record in the smallest form of the game, but he left himself behind.
In doing so, he made a leap from superb to the superstar. ICC’s top-order T20 bowler – he shared the top spot in one-day international rankings, and played in Test Debt in Afghanistan – Rashid franchisee was the closest thing to a banker in the high-rolling world of T20.
He smiled for his wicket, grateful for every opportunity that came in his way. When his father died on December 30, to watch his son playing in the 2019 World Cup, Rashid stayed in the Big Bash League in Australia instead of returning home.
While it is believed that there are seven variations, it is not a mystery. He is open about his methods, relying on the accuracy, a fast hand and a well-hidden googly. In a masterclass for Sky, he unveiled an unorthodox approach to leg-spin: “I do not use my wrist. Mostly I use the top of my fingers, I think it is more speed on the ball. Puts.”
Batters can know what’s coming – they are not sure what to do. If the global T20 circuit can look repetitive, it can spread from one wall to the wall, which is outside the six-hitter and sponsored time, there was nothing about Rashid. In 2018, no player was in excess demand, when he did lineup 61 times for seven teams in five countries – which included a World XI in Afghanistan National side and Lords.
No player came close to his 96th wicket, defeating last T20 for a calendar year: Dwayne Bravo scored 87 in 72 matches in 2016. (Rashid is in third place with 56 in 2017.)
Wherever he went, collected plaids and praise: 2017-18 joint-leading wicket taker in the Big Bash, where his Adelaide strikers lifted the trophy; 2018 IPL joint second, where his Sunrisers lost in Hyderabad final.
With Sussex, in the Vitality Blast, he again associated with his coach Jason Gillespie in the striker, and helped him in his first final appearance since 2012. He was the Man of the Tournament at the inauguration of the Afghan Premier League. And he was one of the most versatile bowlers in every competition, which he played.
All this was done by a 20-year-old man, who changed from an opening batsman to a spin bowler only four years ago, who taught himself through endless hours in the net, and on the birth, he was barely an affiliate member of the ICC Was there. . Afghan hero, IPL millionaire, T20 smash hit – The story of Rashid was one to affect all the people of cricket.
After an announcement by the Afghan Cricket Board (ACB) on Friday that 31-year-old Asgar Afghan will be removed for captaincy, there has been a stir in Afghanistan cricket fans. Although some fans have reducing the lack of leadership experience of newly nominated captains – Rahmat Shah in the Test, Gulabdin Naib in ODI and Rashid Khan in T20I – mostly raised questions over the timing of the announcement.

Rashid said, “With all the respect of the selection committee, I disagree with this decision because it is irresponsible and prejudicial. As we have the World Cup, Captain #MAsgharAfagan should remain as the captain of our team. Their captaincy is excessive. ” Important to the team’s success … For a few months of going for big programs like the World Cup, changing the captain will lead to uncertainty and the morale of the team will also be affected. “
With the 34-year-old Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, the IPL in 2019, now Sunrise was turning towards Hyderabad, he was actually the captain of Afghanistan in the 2015 World Cup.
In the meanwhile, Nayab tweeted his enthusiasm to lead his country in the World Cup. His previous captaincy experience includes only two first-class matches and nine inventories A matches.
“It is with great respect and appreciation that I thank the management of the Afghanistan Cricket Board for honoring me with the captaincy of one day national cricket team … I would like to see the entire country and my team with more fruitful results. Once again, I assure you to take this path forward. In fact, the courtesy of the whole country has appreciated me and I am eager to start my new journey. Am.
