Meanwhile, Rashid Khan recently led the Afghanistan cricket team to a T20I series win over the 2016 World Twenty20 winners. In a series-deciding third match, Afghanistan posted 156-8 in their 20 overs and in turn, restricted West Indies to just 127-7. The two teams will now square-off in a one-off Test match at the Ekana International Cricket Stadium Lucknow from November 27 onwards.
Ahead of the upcoming IPL Auction on December 19, Rashid Khan was also one of the 17 players retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad for IPL 2020 during the recently-concluded trading window.
