PSL: Rashid Khan’s all-round show gives Lahore Qalandars a winning start


Rashid Khan, the leg spinning allrounder who made his debut in Pakistan Super League (PSL) for Lahore Qalandars on Sunday, made his presence felt from the word go. The Afghan’s prowess with both bat and ball and fast bowler Shaheen Afridi’s three-wicket haul paved the way for their four-wicket win over Peshawar Zalmi in the first match of the day at National Stadium in Karachi.

Chasing Peshawar’s total of 140 for six, Rashid hit a quickfire, unbeaten 27 off 15 balls that included a winning six over midwicket to help Lahore cruise to 146-6 in 18.3 overs to give last year’s finalists a winning start.

“I call that shot the mini-helicopter, just try to go for it,” said Rashid, who will be playing in just one more PSL game before joining Afghanistan for their series against Zimbabwe.
