LIVE SL vs AFG: Rashid Khan’s batting prowess has helped him establish himself as a reliable all-rounder. On Friday, the leg-spinner attracted attention with his aggressive strokeplay in advance of the Asia Cup opener between Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. To win his fans, the Afghani played some outrageous no-look helicopter shots.
It’s crucial to remember that Rashid Khan’s batting is his greatest asset. He does, though, have a talent for meaningful bat-down-the-order contributions.
Three balls are all that are shown in the social media sensational video. They were all throwdowns, but he only managed to hit all of them once. He cannot be considered a tail-ender after watching the video, in my opinion.
When the ball is first pitched, Rashid smashes his bat forcefully and sends the ball sailing over his head and straight down the ground for a six. The new two balls exhibit Rashid’s unorthodox and confident playing of the no-look helicopter stroke.
Both of the shots in the video land in the middle of the bat, which screams “six” from every angle. The leg-spinner maintains his position at the nets while looking down at the field to make it look even more elegant. If one went in that direction, the other went in that direction, toward the square-leg fence.
Rashid will be expected to put in a strong performance, particularly with the ball. His primary duty will be to keep Sri Lanka in check and pick off wickets within his allotted four overs. Despite the strength of the Sri Lankan team, Rashid might make the difference between the two teams.
In actuality, the joy comes from when he has a chance to use the bat. Will he also use the no-look helicopter on Saturday at the Dubai International Stadium?
