Rashid Khan currently sits as one of the most dangerous spinners of the cricketing world. Despite belonging to a war-torn nation with limited cricket infrastructure and opportunities, the spin wizard has continued to punch above his weight. With his stunning skill-set, Rashid has impressed the cricketing fraternity every now and then.
While his white-ball form had no questions, his journey in Test cricket wasn’t that much fluent. Particularly in his debut Test, Rashid looked out of tricks against India where he conceded 154 runs and picked only 2 wickets.
However, he came back strongly in the next two red-ball games against Ireland and Bangladesh to register three five-wicket hauls.
Recently, the skipper of Afghanistan revealed that he benefitted from the advice of greats like Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan.
The spin maestros asked Rashid Khan to keep a calm mindset while doing what he does in ODI and T20I cricket. Moreover, they urged him to be a bit more patient. This, in the view of the 21-year old cricketer, allowed him to crack the code of Test cricket. Moreover, Rashid is confident to continue his good run across all the three formats of the game.
