Sachin Tendulkar replies to Rashid, looks forward to his World Cup appearance
The Afghanistan star spinner and Sachin Tendulkar have formed a sort of bond given their mutual admiration for each other’s skills. The respect that Rashid has for the senior legend like Tendulkar is impressive.
Tendulkar has previously stated that he finds Rashid to be the best spinner in the T20 format and also lauded him for his batting skills as well. Rashid is not that kind of player who caves under pressure and looks forward to tough situations.
Rashid was also recently made the captain of the Afghanistan T20 team and will feature in his second World Cup coming May in England and Wales. He had led his team to World Cup qualifiers victory in 2018. Sachin Tendulkar took notice of Rashid Khan’s birthday wish and replied to the youngster that he was keeping tabs on his IPL performance and looked forward to see him perform in the World Cup.
Tendulkar posted, “Thanks for the wishes. I have been following your performances during the IPL and looking forward to seeing you at the World Cup.”
