The journey of Afghanistan’s gem Rashid Arman Khan from being a bowler to the renowned player all over the world is quite interesting. His career in cricket was never an easy one. He basically belongs to a middle-class family and did a lot of hard work to attain the position he is in right now.
Rashid played in the 2017 Indian Premier League for Sunrisers Hyderabad. In June 2017, he took the best bowling figures for an associate nation in a One Day International (ODI) match. In February 2018, he became the youngest player to top the ICC Player Rankings for bowlers in ODIs. Later the same month, he also topped the ICC Player Rankings for bowlers in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).
In March 2018, during the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier, he captained Afghanistan for the first time in an ODI match. At the age of 19 years and 165 days, he became the youngest player to captain an international side.
Now, the pictures of Rashid that were taken during his poor phase of life are going viral on the Internet. Check out the pics here:
In the final of the Cricket World Cup Qualifier, against the West Indies, Khan became the fastest and youngest bowler to take 100 wickets in ODIs when he dismissed Shai Hope. He took 44 matches to take his 100th dismissal, breaking the previous record of 52 matches, set by Mitchell Starc of Australia.
