All-rounders have always been an asset for a team and if you have a bowling all-rounder who can hit some quick runs than it’s a luxury for any team. In world cricket Rashid Khan, Chris Morris, Mohammad Nabi are quite a few names which can do both finishing and bowing duties.
The Afghanistan duo of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi are well known entities in international cricket. Besides providing four exciting overs of mysterious bowling they also provide good late hitting options for the teams. Both have finished the match for Afghanistan many a times and that’s the reason every T20 franchise try to bring both or either of them to the eleven.

Rashid Khan, representing Adelaide Strikers in the on-going ninth edition of the Big Bash League, played a blinder in the 17th match of the season against Sydney Thunders.
Chasing a target of 166, Strikers were reeling at 116 for 6 in the 16th over. They needed 50 runs from just 22 balls with Cameron White and Rashid Khan on the crease. But White departed on the very next ball as the game looked almost over for the Strikers.
Rashid Khan had some other ideas though as he launched a counter strike on Sydney Thunders. He started with a AB de Villiers like swipe to launch a low full-toss from Chris Green over leg side. The shot took everyone aback as Rashid resembled the South African great while playing the shot.

Rashid Khan kept on attacking the bowlers as he soon raced to 32 off just 14 balls, bringing the equation down to 14 off the last over. But Chris Morris brought his experience to the fore as he managed to dismiss Rashid Khan and Wes Agar on the fifth and sixth ball of the over respectively after conceding two consecutive boundaries, winning the match for his team by 3 runs.
