Meanwhile, the young spinner has been in the form of life in limited-overs cricket. However, he faced some difficulties in his debut Test for Afghanistan against India, last week.
The tweaker represented Sunriers Hyderabad in the recently concluded IPL. He single-handedly took his team to the finals of the league, however, lost it.
The 19-year old Rashid continued his performance in the T20I series against Bangladesh. He bagged 12 wickets from three games to bag the Player of the series of the tournament.
Moreover, he is also the top-ranked T20I bowlers in the world which speaks volumes of his ability. However, he will have to work harder to be successful in the longer format of the game.
