Rashid's run continues

06 February 2018

Popular Striker Rashid Khan has continued where he left off after BBL|07, claiming incredible figures of 3/19 in Afghanistan's T20I victory over Zimbabwe.

Rashid, who was the equal-leading wicket-taker of BBL|07 with 18 scalps, claimed three wickets in his return to international duties at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in the United Arab Emirates.

Introduced in the 12th over by captain Asghar Stanikzai, the 19-year-old trapped Ryan Burl (8) and Kyle Jarvis (0) cheaply LBW and bowled tail-ender Tendai Chatara for just 7.

Zimbabwe's middle order collapsed in the space of seven balls, falling from 1/65 to 4/68 as Afghanistan secured a comfortable five-wicket victory in the opening clash of the two-match series.

Rashid’s teammate Mohammad Nabi, who played for the Melbourne Renegades in BBL|07, was named Player of the Match for his 40* from 27 balls.
