There is little denying the fact that Rashid Khan is one of the most popular players in the game right now. In fact, he is one of the most popular overseas cricketers in India due to his exploits on the field. He has plied his trade in India, Australia, Bangladesh, England, West Indies and has done well everywhere. His performance in international cricket has been equally impressive.
His love affair with India began in 2017 when he fetched the highest ever bid for an Associate player in the IPL Auction. He was snapped up by Sunrisers Hyderabad for INR 4 crores (US$ 597,000). A year later, he further enhanced his reputation when he became Afghanistan’s first IPL millionaire after Sunrisers reclaimed him at auction for INR 9 crores (US$ 1.4 million).
He is one of the biggest reasons behind Afghanistan’s remarkable rise in cricket. His rankings pretty much prove that. The leg-spinner is currently the No.1 bowler in T20Is and one place short in the 50-over game at No.2.
Favourite Bollywood actress:
Rashid Khan must have made some more fans in India by conducting an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Instagram. One of the several questions that was asked to him was about his favourite Bollywood actresses.
And Rashid did not disappoint as he showed his knowledge of Bollywood by revealing that Anushka Sharma and Preity Zinta are his favourite actresses.
Here is a screenshot of the same:
Rashid, meanwhile, is currently in South Africa plying his trade for Durban Heat in the Mzansi Super League. He will soon fly out to Australia to play in the Big Bash League.
