Last night at the World Cup gave another record of unique sorts. Rashid Khan of Afghanistan became the most expensive spinner in the history of cricket World Cup. Oh no, he is not charging a lot of money. He, in fact, charged a lot of runs! Moreover, he took no wickets. Rashid’s score – (110/0)
Rashid Khan is now too expensive to afford. He gifted a century to England
In the match against England, the British were bombarded with runs by the Afghanistan spinner. Later, England was easily able to set a huge target of 397! Indeed they could not have done it without the support of Rashid Khan.
Race of the century
The spinner has set a record of his own now. But these are the top three which Rashid overtook to reach the first position-
Rashid Khan, 2019 – 0/110 (9 overs)
Martin Snedden, 1983 – 2/105 (12 overs)
Jason Holder, 2015 – 1/104 (10 overs)
Dawlat Zadran, 2015 – 2/101 (10 overs)
