Rashid Khan is now a well-established name in the cricket fraternity. Everyone knows about his abilities with the ball and how he can turn the match in his team's favour. At the age of 22, he has achieved so much in the world of cricket and was also recently named as the captain of the Afghanistan T20 team. He has the unique ability to outfox batsmen with his mystery bowling but now it seems he will have to focus more on his batting as his family wants him to score more runs.
Rashid Khan, in a recent interview, talked about how his family is now asking him to score more runs. Even though Rashid has earned all this name and fame due to his bowling, his family says that they have seen enough of it now. They want Rashid to score some runs now.
“My bowling gives me lots of achievement and the name of Rashid Khan Khan, my batting is something I have in my pot that I can deliver when the team needs it. But still, my family say they got used to my bowling, wickets, wickets, wickets, now they want me to score some runs,” said Rashid to the Guardian.
