Rashid Khan is a name that has quickly become popular around the world. While he made his T20I and ODI debut just six years back in 2015, he has only featured in 5 Test matches for Afghanistan so far, playing his first against India in Bengaluru in 2018. However, more than his success for Afghanistan, it is his performances in the T20 leagues around the world that has helped him make a name for himself in world cricket.

Moreover, he has broken several records at such a young age. At 22-year-old, the leg-spinner boasts of having numbers that even several veteran cricketers fail to manage in their illustrious careers. Moreover, he has broken several age-group records as well, most notably being the youngest captain of the Test team aged 20 years and 350 days.

Facebook user makes serious allegations against Rashid

However, a Facebook user named Rahmat Ullah has now made some serious allegations against the Afghani star. He said that he played against Rashid in Lahore way back in 2009 and at that time he himself was 17, while Rashid was 18. However, while he has now turned 28, Rashid claims to be 21.

Check out the comment here:

Although the claim made by the user is yet to be verified, it has already caught the netizens’ attention and got them speaking.  Rashid is currently featuring in the Pakistan Super League, plying his trade for the Lahore Qalandars and has already made a few match-winning contributions for them, both with the bowl and bat.
