5 key players for Afghanistan in Afghanistan tour of Ireland 2018
#2 Rashid Khan
Rashid Khan is perhaps the best cricketing talent of his age. He made his international debut at the age of just 17 and has amazed the cricketing fraternity since then. Afghanistan's continuous upward swing in recent years has much to do with his personal success. Not to forget, he is the fastest to take 100 wickets in One-day Internationals. In the shortest form of the game, he becomes even more dangerous as is obvious from his IPL stats. In the last T20I series against Bangladesh, he single-handedly won matches for his team. He was awarded the 'Player of the series' then.
He will be happy to deliver the same kind of performance against the Irish team.
