Ever wondered that the Sunrisers hyderabad’s highest bid of 2017 is not worth it? If so, i would say your thoughts on the young lad are completely wrong.
There was a lot of excitement for the cricket-mad public of Afghanistan as two of their players were picked at the Indian Premier League auction. Their eighteen-year-old leg-spinner, Rashid Khan, is now being called the ‘million dollar’ baby by his teammates after Rashid was picked by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs 4 crores on Monday.
He has all the variations which a complete leggie should possess. He has a swift leg cutter which rushes through the batsmen and a googly which not many leg spinners can master.
The former Afghan skipper is quoted saying “His googly is difficult to pick and he fires it on target”
He is a go to bowler for the Afghans whenever they needed a wicket or two and quite surprisingly , he delivers all the time.
His ODI and T20 stats are as follows:
ONE DAY INTERNATIONALS
Rashid khan is currently in the form of his life. He has picked 10 wickets together in his last 2 ODIs and 8 wickets in his last 2 T20Is.
