Afghanistan Premier League 2018: As the world of cricket shifts focus to Afghanistan, the cricketing nation on the rise for their upcoming League, anchor-presenter Erin Holland has made a request to Kabul’s Rashid Khan. Erin has asked Rashid Khan to take good care of her boyfriend Ben Cutting. Cutting is an Australian national player who will be playing for the Nangarhar Leopards franchise. The pacer was picked for the league, he has prior experience of sub-continental conditions as he has been a part of the SunRisers Hyderabad outfit.

Erin made the request on Rashid tweet, where the bowler thanked fans on becoming the ICC No 1 all-rounder. Rashid’s post read, “Today I’m privileged & very happy for the @ICC All-Rounder No: ODI Bowler NO: & T20 Bowler No: World Ranking. High achievement usually takes place in the framework of high expectation & optimism is the faith that leads. Thank you for all your prayers.”

So happy for you Rashid! Look after (Ben) Cutting for me (maybe don’t bowl him out too much please) in the APL 2018,” Holland said via her official Twitter handle.

Rashid was courteous enough to respond to that, his response was, “Thank you @erinvholland . Definitely will look after him But tell @Cuttsy31 don’t sweep me.”
