Nobody had ever thought of a leg-spinner taking world cricket by a storm until Rashid Khan burst on to the scene and he spread his spin web around the batsmen in various T20 leagues around the world. Khan made his Big Bash debut playing for the Adelaide Strikers in 22nd December against Sydney Thunder and has impressed critics and pundits in Australia and has become a fan favourite in the country.
Legendary Australian wicket-keeper Adam Gilchrist is one of those who is impressed by the leg spinners talent. Khan took 2 for 22 on his BBL debut against Sydney Thunder and took the BBL family by storm. He bowled an excellent googly to dismiss Ben Rohrer for a duck, and the delivery was stated as unplayable.
Such brilliant cricketing stories eh. Enjoy ? https://t.co/G7oNcrR29c

Gilchrist was so impressed that he uploaded Rashid Khan’s picture and set it as his display picture on his Twitter handle and wrote, “Such brilliant cricketing stories eh. Enjoy”
