Strikers spinner snaps stump

Rashid Khan

New Strikers spinner Rashid Khan has snapped middle stump with an incredible delivery in his latest T20 outing in the Bangladesh Premier League.

The 19-year-old leg-spinner bowled Sri Lankan batsman Dilshan Munaweera of the Chittagong Vikings with a wrong'un which cannoned into the middle peg.

The ball rocketed into the stump with such impact that it snapped in two and also damaged internal sound and camera equipment.

Rashid’s Comilla Victorians won the match by six wickets after chasing down the Vikings’ total of 139 with 11 balls to spare.

The Afghan completed his four overs boasting the best economy rate of his team (4.25) with figures of 1/17.

It’s the latest glimpse of Rashid’s immense talent on the T20 stage. The teen became the first player to claim a hat-trick in the Caribbean Premier League in September and took 17 wickets in his debut Indian Premier League season representing Sunrisers Hyderabad.
