Rashid Khan rarely fails to make an impact whenever he is on a cricket field. It does not matter whether he has the ball in his hands or not, the Afghanistan superstar just knows how to make his presence felt. And he was at it again on Sunday when he took a sensational catch during the clash between Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes.
The world number one T20I spinner took a stunning catch at long on while balancing himself on one leg to send back the dangerous Colin Ingram. On the fifth ball of the 16th over bowled by Peter Siddle, the South African batsman went for a big shot.
The southpaw must have fancied his chances when he made the good contact with the ball. The ball was looking to end up outside the boundary too but Rashid Khan had other plans. The leg-spinner made a timely jump to catch the ball in the field of play before coming up with the incredible balancing act.
He balanced himself on one leg and was almost going to trip over the boundary. But before stepping outside, he smartly flicked the ball inside the field of play and caught it after regaining his balance.
Here is a clip of that incredible catch from Rashid Khan:

Rashid Khan, however, had a poor outing with the ball as Hurricanes piled up 174 for 5 in the 20 overs. The spin star conceded 38 runs in his four overs while taking one wicket. 25 off those 38 runs came in just one over when D’Arcy Short took him to the cleaners.
