Afghan teen Rashid Khan receives accolades after superb performance

Afghan spin sensation Rashid Khan saw cricket fans in India pleading for him to be awarded citizenship after the 19-year-old single-handedly carried Sunrisers Hyderabad into Sunday’s Indian Premier League final.

Rashid smashed an unbeaten 34 off 10 balls to lift Hyderabad’s innings to 174 for seven before leaving the Kolkata Knight Riders spellbound with his fast leg-spinners, claiming three for 19 in his four overs.

If that was not enough, Rashid was also involved in a run out and then took two catches while fielding close to the boundary rope in the last over as his team won by 14 runs and advanced to the final against Chennai Super Kings at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.
