Rashid Khan Memes: Twitterati severely criticized Afghani leg-spinner for registering his worst ODI bowling figures vs England.
During the 24th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and Afghanistan at Old Trafford, Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan registered his worst-ever bowling figures in ODIs.
Brought into the attack in the 19th over by Afghanistan captain Gulbadin Naib, Rashid conceded 110 runs in nine overs. Other than the figures being his individual worst, Rashid also equaled the record for second-worst bowling figures in ODIs alongside Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz.
It has been such a tournament for the 20-year old cricketer. In four matches, he has picked only three wickets at an average of 74.66, an economy rate of 7.03 and a strike rate of 63.6.
In his first two overs today, Rashid had given only nine runs. Him leaking 20 runs in his next two overs had put on display uncalled for signs for both Rashid Khan and Afghanistan.
Rashid bowled his next over when England captain Eoin Morgan was in the middle. With Morgan scoring a 57-ball hundred, him thwacking Morgan to all parts of the ground remained the highlight of his innings. The southpaw hit as many as seven sixes against the No. 3-ranked bowler in the world.
While the opposition batsmen were nearly unstoppable, Rashid continually bowling short didn’t help his case. Not able to deceive the batsmen in either flight or turn, Rashid trying other ways to dismiss them proved way too costly for him.
