The cricketer last played an international cricket match against Ireland in a T20I series where he picked five wickets in three matches helping Afghanistan beat the hosts. After that, he has hardly played any cricket due to the coronavirus lockdown, which forced the postponement or suspension of most cricketing tournaments.
Rashid – who is a pivotal cog in the wheel for SunRisers Hyderabad was bought by the franchise in 2017 for a whopping Rs 4 crore – was slated to feature in the T20 tournament which has now been postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.
In his debut IPL season, the Afghan star picked 17 wickets and finished as sixth-highest wicket-taker.
