Rashid Khan is the best spinner in the world: Sachin Tendulkar
The young leg spinner has impressed the world with his bowling skills.
The Indian Premier League is a platform for young players to perform and excel. It is a place where the local players get the opportunity to share the dressing room with some of the legends of the game and learn the game from their viewpoints. This helps them to take giant strides in their professional career.
A few years back, who would’ve thought that a player from Afghanistan will become the best spinner in the World? Rashid Khan has shown to the world that every nation possesses some quality players who just need an opportunity to showcase their talent. The leggie is in the form of his life and is constantly troubling the batsmen with his variations.
Even the big guns like Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni have faltered against Rashid Khan. The wrist spinner uses his variations very well and it is very difficult to pick him from the hand as he bowls his deliveries with similar action.
The Spin King
Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar took to Twitter to admit the fact that Rashid is the best spinner in the world. The 20-year old is making a reputation for himself in the shorter formats of the game. Sachin tweeted: “Always felt @rashidkhan_19 was a good spinner but now I wouldn’t hesitate in saying he is the best spinner in the world in this format. Mind you, he’s got some batting skills as well. Great guy.”

Many players tend to allow the pressure to get to them but Rashid is not that kind of a player. He craves to bail his team out in tough conditions. In the second qualifier against KKR, Rashid was the most valuable player of the match as he excelled with the bat, ball and on the field. He is growing in confidence and needs to keep up the good work to ensure that his team attains positive results consistently.
