Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan grabbed 5/41 in the ICC World Cup Qualifier against UAE to keep alive his team’s hopes of making it to 2019 World Cup. Rashid is also inching towards another milestone in his young international career.
And considering the form Rashid Khan is in, he can break this record in just the next ODI itself against Ireland in ICC World Cup Qualifiers.
|Fastest to 100 ODI wickets|
There are many milestones Rashid Khan has achieved in his short career during the World Cup Qualifiers itself. He became the youngest skipper in ODI cricket when he led Afghanistan for the first few matches as Asghar Stanikzai was recovering from an appendicitis surgery. Rashid Khan is also the top ODI and T20I bowler according to ICC Rankings.
Afghanistan will next play Ireland and must hope some results go their way to stake a claim in 2019 World Cup.
