Rashid Khan insisted that his mind was occupied by the World Cup rather than the wedding bell, because the leg spin wizard hopes to inspire Afghanistan in the 2020 global exhibition.
Still only 23 years old, Rashid is the key to his country’s hope of winning its first world championship and potential victory, which will bring rare good news to his country.
However, Rashid said that speculation about his private life on the eve of the current championships in Oman and the UAE will not undermine his ambitions.
He denied that he had said: “When Afghanistan wins the World Cup, I will get married.”
“Actually, when I heard the news, I was very shocked because to be honest, I never said that I would get married once I won the World Cup,” said Rashid, whose family lives in Nangarha in eastern Afghanistan. you.
“I’m just saying that in the next few years, I have more cricket and three World Cups (2020 World Cup in 2021 and 2022 and 50 World Cups in 2023), so my focus will be on cricket. On the ball, not married.”
Rashid made his first appearance in Afghanistan at the age of 17, and is one of the most popular players in international cricket.
He has participated in 51 T20 international matches and more than 280 games for teams around the world.
A rich career has allowed him to trade IPL in England, Australia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa, and of course, India. Since 2017, he has been a frequent visitor to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
He has 95 wickets in the T20 international competition, an average of only 12.63, and he was selected as the ICC ten-year cricket player in 2020.
On the low door of the bay, rotation will be the key. “I think this will be a spinning World Cup,” Rashid said.
‘Slower and slower’
“Most of the wickets here are very suitable for spinners, so I think this is the main reason most teams have more spinners on offense.”
India has 4 slow pitchers among its 15 pitchers, including Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Varun Chakravarthy and Rahul Chahar, while England has Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone.
The defending champions of the West Indies include Akeal Hosein, Hayden Walsh and Roston Chase. Chris Gayle can also turn his arm over. Pakistan can invite Shadarbhan, Mohammed Nawaz and Imad Vasim as front-line spinners. Veterans Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik can also adjust the ball.
New Zealand has Ish Sodhi, Mitchell Santner and Todd Astle.
Australia has not yet won the T20 World Cup and will look forward to Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar.
Rashid is not the only frontline spinner in Afghanistan-there are Mujeeb Ur Rahman and captain Mohammad Nabi.
Rashid said: “I noticed during the Indian Premier League (the end of the game was also played in the UAE) that the wickets were good, but there were not so many spins.”
“But I think the more we play in this World Cup, we might see a little bit different wickets. The more you play on these tracks, it will become slower and slower, and they will be more effective It will be very convenient for the device.”
Rashid refused to predict the favorite of the seventh World Cup.
“Well, it’s T20 now, anyone can beat anyone on the day,” said Rasheed, who resigned as captain because he didn’t consult the lineup before the game started.
“We have both experienced players and young players. The most important thing is that it is very balanced with some all-around players. This makes the team very balanced, especially in T20, when you have more all-around players.”
Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, New Zealand and the two Super 12 qualifiers that started on Saturday are divided into the second group of the World Cup.
