Rashid Khan is now the top-ranked bowler in both the formats of the limited overs cricket.
The young spinner is receiving accolades all over the world with his remarkable spells in all the formats of the game.
He now shares the spot with Jasprit Bumrah in the ODI rankings thus becoming the youngest player to reach the top of ICC rankings at an age of 19 years 153 days.
Rashid had a great outing in the ODI series against Zimbabwe at UAE, claiming 16 wickets at a meager average of 7.93. On the other hand, he is also now the 4th ranked all-rounder in the ODI formats.

A player to watch out in the leagues
It is to be noted that Rashid has now become an indispensable asset in several leagues across the world.
SRH have retained him for a whopping 9 crores and his contributions to the Adelaide Strikers in BBL were invaluable as they ended up as the champions of 2018 edition.
He also received the associate player of the year award from ICC and this sums up his quality of performance over the years. Aged just 19, experts predict him to be one of the threatening bowlers ever produced.
Afghanistan will be playing the ICC WC qualifiers to earn a ticket into the 2019 WC. They will start their campaign on March 4 when they face Scotland at Bulawayo.
No doubt he will be one of the vital factors in cementing the berth for Afghanistan in 2019 WC.
We wish him all success for all his future tours ahead.
