ICC Awards: Rashid Khan made this statement after winning the Best T-20 Cricketer of the Decade

Star spinner Rashid Khan has said that it is a special achievement for a player from a rising country like Afghanistan to win the International Cricket Council (ICC) Award for the best T20 International cricketer of the decade.

Twenty-year-old leg-spinner Rashid is the highest bowler to take 89 wickets in T20 Internationals at an average of 12.62 in the last decade. He took four or more wickets in the innings three times and five or more wickets twice.

In the video posted on the ICC’s Twitter page, Rashid said that after this award, I have no words to say. It is a special moment for me, my country and my fans, to receive this award from an Afghanistan player.

Rashid said that in the next years, now his focus will be on improving his batting skills. He said that I have played for five years and my goal is to play 10 years and do well. I am doing well in bowling and in the following years I will focus on contributing with the bat as well.

Regarding some memorable performances, Rashid said that I have so many memorable moments in T20 cricket. I took five wickets for six against Ireland, including four wickets in four balls. It was a memorable performance.

“I can’t forget my performance of the 2016 T20 World Cup where I was second in the list of most wicket-takers,” he said. The performance against the then West Indies champion was also memorable. I took two wickets in that match and Marlon Samuels’ wicket was my best wicket in that World Cup.
