Former England women’s player Sarah Taylor was mightily impressed by Rashid Khan’s helicopter shot in Pakistan Super League 2021 against Peshawar Zalmi on Sunday. Afghanistan’s leg spinner Rashid Khan has been playing for the Lahore Qalandars in the 2021 PSL and he hit the winning runs which left a lot of the cricket fans in awe. The all-rounder has been working on his batting and showed his prowess with the bat.
Rashid Khan played a blistering knock during the run chase along with the veteran Mohammad Hafeez to take their side home. His 27 off 15 balls were very crucial in the chase and continued his good run of form with the bat. Earlier, he bowled an excellent spell of 4 overs giving away just 14 runs at an economy rate of 3.5 which is outstanding. His batting skills were in an exhibition on Sunday.

Rashid Khan went for the helicopter shot but ended up with a mini version of it to hit a powerful six against the speedster Amad Butt. The video of his marvellous shot was shared by PSL’s official Twitter handle and Former England’s Star Sarah Taylor was quick to react to the tweet. She replied to the tweet as “Teach me” along with a laughing emoji.

He relishes any type of challenge and has done wonders in the game so far at a very young age.
