The World No. 1 T20I spinner Rashid Khan has been in tremendous form in limited overs cricket. Recently, he won the man of the series award for his exploits with the ball as he picked up eight wickets in the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, Dehradun. The spinner’s next big assignment will be against the mighty Indian team in the historic Test starting from June 14.
Especially in the third and final T20I of the series, Rashid came up with brilliant bowling in the death overs as he conceded less than 20 runs in three death overs. When 9 runs were needed in the final over for Bangladesh to win, Rashid bowled one of the impressive final overs to seal the game for his side by just one run. It was Shafiqullah Shafiq accurate fielding effort that helped Afghanistan to clean sweep the Tigers by 3-0.
After the conclusion of the heart-pounding thriller, many eminent personalities praised Rashid Khan on social media. One among them was Harsha Bhogle, who took to Twitter to hail the world-class spinner. The veteran commentator and analyst wrote on his Twitter handle, “Meanwhile @rashidkhan_19 has defended 9 off the last over to give Afghanistan a clean sweep over Bangladesh. Amazing result for Afghanistan and further proof of Rashid’s phenomenal development”

Rashid was quick to respond to the tweet, which read, “Thank you bro.” Many Twitter users couldn’t stop laughing as Rashid Khan termed a 56-year old Harsha Bhogle as ‘bro’. However, Bhogle came to the spinner’s rescue by tweeting, “Hey
@rashidkhan_19, no problem with the “bro” bit. Go for it! Looking forward to catching up in Bengaluru!”
