Australia batsman Glenn Maxwell is wary of the danger that leg-spinner, Rashid Khan possesses and believes it will be key when they take on Afghanistan in their World Cup opener on June 1.
Rashid has been one of the biggest names of the Big Bash League as his average of 16.02 is the lowest among players who’ve taken more than 50 wickets. To counter the leg-spinner, Maxwell is banking on his experience of playing Rashid in the Big Bash League.
"At times I think I can (pick him. He's very difficult. He is probably one of the more difficult ones (spinners) I've played against. I will be drawing on that experience a little bit. We've got a bit of footage to watch, but it's a different kettle of fish when you're actually facing him," Maxwell said.
