Afghanistan’s young spin sensation, Rashid Khan, who has taken the world by a storm in the recent few years, was recently among the headlines for claiming the No.1 spot in the ICC ODI all-rounders’ rankings. The leg-spinner has earned huge praises for his exploits in such a short duration in his career.

A teenager on his ODI debut, Rashid has made progress rather more quickly than his contemporaries. He boasts of a plethora of experience of playing in T20 leagues all around the globe, with IPL being the major stepping stone in his path to success. His breakthrough year with Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2017 saw him being hailed as the next big thing in the limited overs cricket.

Wishes Tom Moody, his coach at Sunrisers Hyderabad

Rashid is highly active on social media platforms, posting pictures or images for his fans about things in his daily life. Recently, he took to Twitter to wish Tom Moody on his birthday. The 20-year old has shared a good camaraderie with Moody, not only as a coach in the IPL but also as a guide. Moody has been praised by many as someone who possesses efficient man-management skills.

Rashid referred to Moody as a Champion Coach and wished him for a highly successful year ahead. He wrote, “Wishing a very Happy Happy Birthday to champion Coach @TomMoodyCricket . May you Have Wonderful year Ahead.”

Here’s the tweet:

Rashid, who was gradually acquiring limelight through his performances in his maiden stint with Sunrisers Hyderabad at IPL in 2017, gave due credit to Tom on how he allowed the youngster to express his natural game on the field. The leg-spinner went vocal on how he was backed in a couple of games after underperforming in few matches.

Rashid deserves the due credit for his role in the upliftment of the cricket in his country. He has been a role model for the youngsters back home as they now want to emulate his success at the international level. It is majorly because of him that Afghanistan currently boast of such a deadly spin combination in the world.
