When we speak of the top spinners in international cricket today, Afghanistan's Rashid Khan appears on top of all limited-overs lists. The leg-spinner, who is just 20 years old, has become the bowler to watch out for when it comes to coloured clothing. His One-day International (ODI) performances are largely at par with his T20 International display, as well as his showing in several professional T20 leagues around the world. Rashid Khan will be one of the players to watch out for in World Cup 2019.

Rashid Khan made his ODI debut against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo in October 2015.

Rashid has so far played 59 ODIs (56 innings) in which he has claimed 125 wickets at an economy of 3.90 and a strike rate of 23.5.

Rashid already has four five-wicket hauls and an equal number of four-wicket returns, with best figures of 7/18.

Rashid Khan is no mug with the bat either, four ODI half-centuries attesting to his effectiveness in the lower order. His highest score is 60 not out.
