Afghanistan and Sunrisers Hyderabad leg spinner Rashid Khan revealed that dismissing MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers clean bowled are his most cherished memories. The skillset of the Afghan spinner is so high that even the best batsmen have struggled against him. Rashid Khan is currently in Abu Dhabi and will represent Lahore Qalandars in the second leg of PSL.
“There are a lot of memorable wickets to be honest. But it you ask me, my best three wickets in T20s, then they have to be MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. I had bowled all three of them. Taking wickets is fine, sometimes you get people out caught and other times you get them out lbw or like that. But, getting such legends out bowled, I would say is a big achievement. Because, to get those three names bowled is a tough job as a spinner. Those wickets, I will always have in my mind and remember them forever,” said Rashid in an interview with Cricwick.
Further in an interview, Cricwick pointed out that Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar was only dismissed once in the last 13 years of his ODI career. Responding to this eye-popping stat, Rashid revealed that he dreams of bowling to Sachin Tendulkar someday.
“That is why I want to bowl to him, because he hardly used to get out to leg spin. More than getting him out, it would be a huge pleasure to bowl to someone like Sachin Tendulkar. Getting him out or not out is a different thing, just bowling to him would be like a dream come true.”
The sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League is all set to get underway on June 9. Rashid played two matches for Lahore Qalandars and picked up one wicket before pulling out of the league due to his international commitments.
