#10 Rashid Khan
The young Afghanistan leggie has been turning not only his leg breaks but also several heads all around the world with his unique skills and wicket-taking abilities.
He was part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the previous season and was crucial to their scheme of things. Ever since he has only gone from strength to strength and finished as the number two wicket-taker in 2017.
Currently, he is plying his trade for Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League and is doing what he does beat- picking up wickets.
