[VIDEOS] "Always wanted to be an aggressive leg-spinner & became a big fan of Afridi & Kumble" : Rashid Khan

This is what Rashid Khan does in T20 leagues - Qalandars very lucky to have him - just needs support from other bowlers.

Took the wicket of Roy when it seemed he would demolish LQ bowling.

Look at him in the field today - diving around, trying to save every single run for his team.

Yet some of our guys cannot be bother to even dive and couldn't care less about their fielding.

Inspirational cricketer!
Shoaib Malik needs to learn from Rashid Khan.

Rashid also plays in many T20 leagues around the world. And he does so with the same enthusiasm, every time. You never get the impression that he's around to collect a paycheque only.
Great cricketer Rashid is but credit also needs to be given to the Lahore Qalandars management, David Wiese and Captain for creating a environment where all their players are giving their 100%. Players like Rashid Khan have mentioned that the environment is exceptional.
This man is inevitable. Currently 3/8

His team easily winning the match against MS but he's still diving around in the field as if his life depended on it.

What a professional.
looks like he enjoys playing for lahore, could easily forego this tournament and it wouldn't make a dent to his career or earnings, but he legit looks like hes having a great time.

i was hoping the psl could help batters work him out a bit better, but looks like hell be tormenting pak whenever they play afg again.
Rashid Khan - a cut above the rest - LQ made a great choice

If Afghani can play in Lahore Ground, why can’t Afghanistan team tour Pakistan?
Top league performer - Take a bow

Rashid Khan finishes his spell with bowling figures of 3/14 in the Rajasthan Royals vs Gujarat Titans, 48th Match
Do England meet Afghanistan in the world cup? Rashid Khan can have his revenge on Indian wickets. So many FTBs cashed in, in the 2019 world cup. Real test will be in this world cup.
Rashid Khan was very ineffective today against Bangladesh while defending a target of 156 in their ICC World Cup 2023 Opener. In his 9 overs, he gave away 48 runs and took no wickets. Considering the score to defend, I will say that it was expensive as Rashid is a world-class bowler and Afghanistan expected more from him today.
Nasser Hussain on comms, talking about how a large chunk of Rashid's deliveries target the stumps (or just about). And if a batsman misses it, he'll get out. Just does the basics so well.

Rashid pulls out of BBL 13 for back surgery

A massive blow for the Adelaide Strikers with Afghanistan leg-spin whiz Rashid Khan to skip the tournament with injury

The Adelaide Strikers have been rocked by news that Rashid Khan will miss this summer's KFC BBL with a back injury that requires surgery.

The Strikers announced today that Rashid required a "minor operation" and had withdrawn from the season.

It's a second major blow for the BBL after the Melbourne Stars announced last week that Harry Brook had pulled out of the competition.

Rashid and Brook were the top two picks at this year's KFC BBL|13 Draft, the second such event.

Last summer's draft was also hit with top picks pulling out, including No.1 pick England's Liam Livingstone.

Adelaide Strikers GM of Cricket Tim Nielsen said it was a big loss to be without the leg-spinner who had played for the club since BBL|07 in 2017-18.

"Rashid is a beloved member of the Strikers and a fan favourite who has been with us for seven years, so he will be extremely missed this summer," Nielsen said.

"Rashid loves Adelaide and the Strikers, and we know how much he loves playing in the BBL, and we support him as he has treatment for this injury to ensure his long-term involvement in the game.

"Our list management and coaching staff will now look at our options for replacing Rashid for the upcoming season and a replacement player will be announced in due course."

Rashid had threatened last January that he was "strongly considering" not returning to the KFC BBL in protest over Cricket Australia cancelling a scheduled ODI series against Afghanistan.

Rashid has played every season with the Adelaide Strikers since bursting onto the scene as a 19-year-old to be the leading wicket-taker in BBL|07.

Rashid was Afghanistan's leading wicket-taker at the recently concluded men's ODI World Cup with 11 wickets in nine games, with a best of 3-37 and economy of 4.48. He is the Strikers all-time leading wicket-taker with 98 in 69 games.

The Adelaide Strikers will maintain retention rights for Rashid for next season's BBL draft.

This season, however, they will look to fellow leg-spinner Cameron Boyce to try and fill the void. Boyce returned to Adelaide ahead of last summer's BBL|12 for his second stint with the club and collected five wickets in six games with an economy of 6.95.

The Strikers also have off-spinning allrounder Matt Short – who is currently representing Australia during their T20 tour of India – and Ben Manenti to supply additional overs of spin throughout the season.

The club is also permitted to sign other overseas players to replace Rashid.

The nature of Rashid's back injury remains clouded. It is unclear what his return to cricket looks like, and if he will be fit to play in other T20 franchise competitions this summer.

Last year, after finishing his stint with the Strikers in early January, Rashid played for Mumbai Indians-owned franchises in both the SA20 and ILT20 competitions.

Afghanistan's next bilateral series is a three-match T20 tour of India beginning on January 11.

Rashid Khan is back in business despite recently undergoing back surgery, as Afghanistan has announced his name in a 19-man squad for the upcoming T20I series against India.

Rashid Khan makes a comeback to the Afghanistan side for the first time since the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023. However, there are doubts over his availability for the three-game series given that he's recovering from back surgery.

In his absence, Ibrahim Zadran has been named as the stand-in skipper.

Jonathan Trott puts 'no real timeframe' on influential Rashid Khan return

Rashid Khan pulled out of the ongoing Big Bash League owing to a minor back injury. Following which, the wrist-spinner underwent a back surgery and is yet to make his return to professional cricket. Speaking about the same, Afghanistan head coach Jonathan Trott mentioned that the cricketer is still recovering and there is no real time frame regarding his possible return to the national squad.

Trott added that the team management is in no mood to rush him back as he is a very influential cricketer and is expected to play a big part for Afghanistan in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Trott added that the spinner is working extremely hard and is training with the rest of the cricketers ahead of the third T20I against India.

“It is a case of us making sure that we are really careful with his back. He is such an influential player, we have to make sure he is 100 per cent ready and not rush him back from that type of surgery. It is important to give him the right time and he is working extremely hard and he is here with the team,”

“He is very passionate and dedicated to the Afghan national side. When he is ready, he will be the first one to get on the field. He has got a few more appointments and check-ups to make sure everything is okay. So there is no real time frame. I hope it is sooner rather than later. But there is no pressure and no rush,” the former England international added.

Rashid is expected to be completely fit before the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. He is one of the leaders in the Gujarat Titans locker room and will once again play a very important role for the team in the upcoming edition, especially with Hardik Pandya not there anymore. He will target IPL as a dress rehearsal before the T20 World Cup, which is slated to begin on June 1.
