Every franchise wants him: Shahid Afridi on Rashid Khan

Speaking on the Samaa TV, Rashid Khan and Shahid Afridi were together on the show Game Set Match. The leg-spinner from Afghanistan recalled his younger days when he was inspired by Shahid Afridi. Afridi too heaped praises on Rashid and said franchises want Rashid because of his performance, positive body language, and team spirit.

The leg-spinner has troubled the best of batsmen around the world. Not only his bowling, but Rashid has time and again proven that he can contribute valuable runs from his batting at the lower order.

The IPL mega-auction is near and while the likes of David Warner may have been let off by the franchise, there were reports that Rashid Khan was not happy with the retention choice that was being offered to him and therefore decided to enter into the mega-auctions.

Rashid Khan plays for a number of T20 leagues around the world including the BBL and CPL. In the interview, Rashid said, “I never thought I would be able to represent the country at such a young age. I was just enjoying the cricket whatever came my way. But playing with the legends of cricket didn’t cross my mind 5 -6 years ago.”
