Earlier in the tournament, Rashid was also awarded the Man of the Match in the tournament opener against the Brisbane Heat at The Gabba a few days ago. Rashid Khan also plays the cash-rich Indian Premier League among the many other leagues he plays around the globe. In the IPL, he is a massive trump card for SunRisers Hyderabad and was one of the many reasons the Orange Army reached the summit clash with Chennai Super Kings.

He was also one of the biggest reasons for Afghanistan qualifying for the 50 overs ICC World Cup next year. It will be played in England and Wales. A lot will be expected of Rashid Khan in the tournament and a lot will ride on how he performs.
