- He sat out of his side’s last match, which they won by 7 wickets
- His gesture towards a youngster caught everyone’s attention
Rashid Khan can easily be termed as the darling of Afghanistan cricket. Following the 2019 World Cup, where the Asian side returned home winless, Rashid was promoted as the skipper across formats. While he is currently leading Band-e-Amir Dragons in the ongoing Shpageeza Cricket League 2019, a video grabbed everyone’s attention where the spin all-rounder was seen imparting valuable lessons to a youngster on how to bowl the leg-breaks.
In the video, Rashid was keenly involved in sharing some tips with the budding cricketer on how to keep the head position, hand movement and use the seam of the white ball to bowl googlies.
Many social media users lauded the gesture from Rashid. The video was also liked by the 21-year-old Rashid from his official Twitter handle. The youngster has made a stir in international cricket with his performances, especially in white-ball cricket. Recently, in his maiden Test as captain of the national side, against Bangladesh, the spinner returned with match figures of 11 for 104 and contributed with the bat as well to lead Afghanistan to a mammoth 224-run win over the Bangla Tigers in their own backyard.
In the Shpageeza Cricket League, Rashid is currently involved with Band-e-Amir Dragons’ as their leader. However, the side hasn’t had an impressive start to their campaign and picked up their first win, on Thursday, following twin defeats. Rashid wasn’t seen in action in his side’s seven-wicket win over Amo Sharks. With the Dragons’ next fixture versus Speen Ghar Tigers on Saturday (October 12), the wily spin all-rounder will be eager to get into the act and lead from the front.
With their first win of the current season, Rashid-led Dragons have not only opened their account but also moved to the fourth spot in the tournament. Meanwhile, Asghar Afghan-led Kabul Eagles continue to lead the points table.
