Rashid Khan was raised in a refugee camp in Peshawar after being born to a Pashtun family in the Afghan hamlet of Nangarhar. After seeing Shahid Afridi play, he became passionate about the sport and soon began to look up to him. In order to excel in this brutal, batting-dominated sport, he studied hard to develop several variants and modelled his quick-arm action after that of his hero.

A few months after turning 17, Rashid Khan was given the chance to represent his nation. In 2015, he played against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo for his first ODI. It didn’t take the young Afghan leggie long to make an impression, and soon he was in charge of the Associate Nations, especially in the game’s condensed format. Rashid Khan found himself in the middle of things for the Hyderabad franchise in the Indian T20 League after bowling 2-1-3-5 against Ireland in a T20I encounter.

Rashid’s career trajectory improved, and he and Mohammad Nabi were recognised as Afghanistan’s two brightest future talents. On his way to glory, the leggie broke numerous records, and his seven-wicket haul in an ODI match against the West Indies making him the first cricketer from an Associate nation to accomplish this achievement. There was no stopping the Afghan tsunami after the ICC awarded him the Associate Cricketer of the Year in 2018.

Rashid joined the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the CPL after his success in the Indian T20 League, and he also scored the first hat-trick of the competition. In the Big Bash League, he also played for the Adelaide Strikers and was a crucial component of their successful season. Afghanistan had achieved significant success at the Associate level thanks to Rashid Khan’s remarkable performance, and shortly the ICC elevated them to Full Membership and gave them the Test status.

Rashid Khan was expected to perform admirably during the 2019 Cricket World Cup, but instead, the Afghan star fell short, which was evident in Afghanistan’s underwhelming showing. Rashid, a 20-year-old leg-spinner, was given the captaincy for all formats of the game right after the huge event since the selectors had such high regard for his future. Asghar Afghan was later reappointed as captain, perhaps so Rashid could concentrate on his bowling.
