Afghanistan won the ICC qualifiers against Windies in the final and wicketkeeper Mohammed Shahzad played a vital role in scripting this win. Videos of Chris Gayle dancing for the “champion” song with Afghan team are going viral in the social media.
Meanwhile, young spin sensation Rashid Khan became the fastest bowler to reach 100 ODI scalps in just 44 matches. Rashid who lead the side in the initial stages of the tournament failed to make an impact but the collective effort from the squad in the super six league made them book a berth in the ICC CWC 2019.
Rashid Khan will now represent SRH in the IPL and is expected to be a threatening factor for the opponents. With age still in his bag and Afghanistan getting test status, it will be interesting to see his approach in the longer format of the game.
On the other hand, England women comfortably chased 199 against Indian women, Thanks to Wyatt’s quickfire innings of 124 in just 64 deliveries. This is her second T20I hundred and was congratulated by legends all over the world for performance.
