While there are cricketers who make their professional debut at 23, Rashid Khan has become a legend of the game at this age. Arguably the finest leg-spinner going around, the Afghanistan international has been nothing short of a nemesis for batters in his brief but sensational career so far. The leggie belongs to the rare breed of bowlers who can take wickets regularly alongside restricting the flow of runs.
In fact, the rise of Afghanistan in world cricket has been parallel to Rashid’s emergence as a formidable force. Unlike most of the legendary leg-spinners, Rashid isn’t someone who can turn the ball viciously. He instead relies on his googlies and other variations to get the better of batters.
In fact, Rashid is one of the four bowlers to have taken 400 wickets in T20 cricket. He is also the fastest to reach the landmark, having achieved the feat in 289 games. Notably, the stereotype was that Rashid can only thrive in white-ball cricket. However, Rashid defied the claim by shining the longest format as well. So far, the leggie has scalped 34 wickets in five Tests including four five-wicket hauls.
He is also a handy batter lower down the order and has scored six half-centuries so far in international cricket. Now, what more a captain can ask from a particular individual? Meanwhile, the Afghanistan spinner has also strengthened his bank balance alongside earning name and fame with his on-field brilliance.
As per several sources and media reports, Rashid Khan’s net worth is estimated around a whopping INR 22 crore. This includes the salary he gets from Afghanistan Cricket Board, Indian Premier League, Pakistan Super League, Big Bash League, and several other T20 competitions.
Rashid Khan currently earns a salary of INR 72.82 lakh from the Afghanistan cricket board, the highest for any cricketer in the country. Considering his salaries from different T20 competitions, Rashid makes around 10-12 crore annually. With Rashid only getting better with time, his net worth and annual income are set to take a rise in the upcoming years.
Notably, Rashid, who was receiving INR 9 crore from Sunrisers Hyderabad, wasn’t retained ahead of IPL 2022 mega auction. This means the leggie would enter the auction pool or get picked by one of the two new franchises. In either case, he’s set to bag a salary of over 10 crore. Hence, his bank balance is set to take a rise.
