Rashid Khan has proved his mettle as one of the most fearsome spinners in world cricket currently. The young leggie has established his reputation as a consistent performer across several franchise-based competitions around the globe.
The 21-year-old’s vicious leg-break deliveries and beautifully disguised googlies have reinforced his stature as a brilliant spinner, who routinely uproots the stumps of opposition batters. He recently claimed his maiden hat-trick in Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL) and has revealed he has adding another mystery ball to his bowling armory.
"I'm trying my best in the nets and the practice sessions to bring something new, but never bring them in the (T20) game because everything is going well there. Hopefully, next summer when we're here (in Australia) I'll have more control on that and then be capable of then bowling them in the T20 as well,” he said.
Afghanistan is scheduled to lock horns with Australia later this year in the Test format and Rashid looked forward to wreaking havoc using the latest delivery he has learnt.
