Khan do attitude as Rashid jets in to Adelaide
The air miles keep clocking up for Afghanistan teenage sensation Rashid Khan as he embarks on yet another adventure in his quest for world domination.
The 19 year-old has been a revelation in international cricket since his debut two years ago, tormenting batsmen all over the globe.
He's already proven a hit in the Caribbean Premier League where he claimed the competition's first hat-trick for Guyana, and also played in the IPL where he commanded a signing fee of almost half a million dollars.
He featured with great distinction in the IPL taling 17 wickets to finish among the leading bowlers in the world's most exclusive competition.
This week he jets in to Adelaide where he will be playing for the Strikers in the Big Bash League.
The Strikers are coached by former Australia international Jason Gillespie, who has just been unveiled as the new coach of Sussex, having previously won titles at Yorkshire.
Rashid revealed to the Adelaide Advertiser that he had come to the attention of 'Dizzy' during the T20 World Cup in India.
“I performed well in the T20 World Cup and Jason spoke with me after that. I decided to play for the Strikers. He has been supporting me very well,” Rashid told the paper.
Rashid and the Strikers make their first appearance of this year's expanded 43-game competition when they play Sydney Thunder on Friday at the Adelaide Oval.
