Kabul (BNA) Rashid Khan leg-spinner, is breaking one record after the other. The 19-year-old hailing from the lesser known cricketing country has bowled over everyone with his googles and impeccable line. Such has been his impact in the cricketing world that he now holds the ICC No. 1 rank for bowlers in both the ODIs and T20Is. After he was elevated to the number one spot in the ODI bowlers ranking on February 20, Rashid also became the youngest player ever to hold the top spot for any form of ICC men's ranking. He was only 19 years and 152 days when topped the ICC Player Rankings for men.
This time around the record is related to the age as well, as Rashid Khan has become the youngest captain in international cricket history. After appendicitis surgery ruled out the regular captain Asghar Stanikzai out of the Cricket World Cup Qualifier (CWCQ), the Afghan Cricket Board appointed Rashid Khan as the interim captain making him the youngest one in international cricket to hold the captaincy mantle. Rashid will be 19 years and 165 days old on March 4th when the CWCQ begins.
