Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan is currently busy playing the Big Bash League (BBL) for the Adelaide Strikers. After their embarrassing loss to the Sydney Thunder in their last game, the Strikers have got a week break before their next encounter. They’ll face the Hobart Hurricanes on 21 January 2019 at the Adelaide Oval. Hence, the players have got a good amount of break.
Utilising it to the maximum, Rashid Khan decided to attend the second ODI between Australia and India. The youngster shares a special bond with most of the Indian players and was seen cheering the team from the stands. He also shared an Instagram story where he recorded a small part of the proceedings in the second innings.

Khaleel and he continue to ply their trade for the franchise. In his post, Rashid also called this trio his best friends and termed them to be great personalities.
‘#GreeTea with Best friends and wonderful personalities @yuzi_chahal23 @mohammedsirajofficial@khaleelahmed13,’ wrote Rashid Khan in his tweet.
