Afghanistan cricketer Rashid Khan is not only famous for his dominating leg-spin bowling, but he is also a very good lower-order batsman. Rashid started the CPL 2020 journey with an incredible sixer.

It was the second match of the CPL 2020, where the defending champions Barbados Tridents were facing St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. In the first innings of that match, Rashid came to bat at the no.10 position when his team was struggling on 116/8 in 14.4 overs. On the fifth ball of that over, Rashid faced Alzarri Joseph and hit a six on that first ball after successfully playing a helicopter flick that traveled over square leg for the maximum. He scored 26 not out off 20 balls that helped his team to manage the first innings total of 153/9 (20 overs).

Watch – Rahkeem Cornwall Takes A Stunning Catch In Slips

West Indies decided to bring in Rahkeem Cornwall in place of Alzarri Joseph in the deciding Test match of the ongoing Wisden Trophy against England in the third Test at Old Trafford, Manchester. In fact, many of the cricket boffins questioned Jason Holder’s team selection of bringing in the spinner in place of the seamer as he opted to field first after winning the toss in overcast conditions.

As we know Rahkeem Cornwall is a big man and weighs a whopping 140 kgs. Thus, it is easy for him to move swiftly in the field. In fact, Cornwall has a very simple and repetitive bowling action and he did found turn on the opening day of the third Test match.

It was great reflexes from Rahkeem Cornwall

However, Cornwall showed that he has quick reflexes. England opener Rory Burns tried to cut the ball against Roston Chase but could only edge it to first slip, where Rahkeem Cornwall took a sharp one-handed catch. The ball was traveling at a decent speed but Cornwall was able to hold on to a fine catch to remove the England opener, who was looking settled.

Meanwhile, this was the fourth time that Roston Chase had dismissed Rory Burns in the Test matches, out of which three dismissals have come in this series. Burns has scored 15 runs against Chase in the 40 balls he has faced against the off-spinner.

On the other hand, Rahkeem Cornwall went wicketless on an opening day. The off-spinner bowled well as he got the turn from the surface but he didn’t have the rub of the green on his side.

England has got themselves into a commanding position after a fine alliance of 136 runs between Jos Buttler and Ollie Pope. The hosts were in a pickle when they lost four wickets for 122 runs but both the right-hander were able to get England back into the contest. England finished the first day at 258-4.
