Rashid Khan is currently one of the top all-rounders in T20 cricket. The Afghanistan-born player is famous for his leg-spin bowling and big hits in the shortest format of the game. While he represents Afghanistan at the international level, he has been a part of the Gujarat Titans in the IPL for a couple of seasons. He started his IPL career by playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the 2024 IPL, he will be seen playing for the Gujarat Titans.

Rashid Khan was born on September 20, 1998, in Nangarhar, Afghanistan. He has ten siblings, and when he was young, his family moved to Pakistan for a few years. Rashid grew up playing cricket and his idol was former Pakistan cricket team captain Shahid Afridi.

Rashid Khan’s full name is Rashid Khan Arman. He was very close to his father. In one of his tweets, Rashid labeled his father as the most important person in his life.

Rashid was heartbroken after his father’s demise in December 2018. He mentioned in his tweet that his father always asked him to be strong in life. Rashid’s compatriot Mohammad Nabi and Sunrisers Hyderabad teammate Yusuf Pathan sent their heartfelt condolences to the young all-rounder after he lost his father.

At the time when he lost his father in December 2018, Rashid tweeted about the sad demise with the post, “Today I lost the most important person in my life, father-the everlasting. Now I know why you always asked me to be strong because you knew that today I would need the strength to bear your loss. Will be always in my I miss you,”.

Rashid Khan’s Mother

Rashid Khan has not shared a photo with his mother, but with his tweets, he has expressed how much he loves her. In June 2020, Rashid Khan’s mother passed away after a prolonged illness. Since he was very close to her, Rashid posted an emotional tweet after her demise.

“You were my home my mother I had no home but you. I can’t believe you are no more with me you will #MOTHER missed forever. Rest In Peace,” Rashid Khan wrote.

Rashid Khan’s Siblings


Rashid Khan has six brothers and four sisters. Once he had posted a video of playing cricket at home with his brothers. Interestingly, all of them bowl leg-spin naturally.

While not much information is available about all siblings, Rashid tagged one of his elder brothers, Amir Khan, in his video on Twitter. One of his nephews asked him to celebrate with an ‘Aeroplane’ celebration, and Rashid does that after every wicket he takes.

The names of Rashid's three brothers are Amir Khalil, Zakiullah, and Raza Khan, about which we come to know from his Instagram (@rashid.khan19). He always spends some quality time with his nephew ‘Mohammad Zain’.

Rashid Khan's Wife

The former Afghanistan skipper is unmarried at the moment. He had to face a lot of trolling on the internet when his statement was misinterpreted where Rashid said that we won’t get married until Afghanistan bags the World Cup trophy. Before the ICC T20 World Cup in 2021, the leg-spinner brushed off the news with a statement saying, “Actually, I was so shocked when I heard this because, to be honest, I never made a statement that I will marry once I win the World Cup, I just said that in the next few years I have more cricket and three World Cups (the 2021 and 2022 Twenty20 World Cups and the 50-over World Cup in 2023) so my focus will be on cricket rather than on getting married.”

In 2020, an internet glitch started showing Bollywood actress and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma as Rashid Khan’s wife. This Google mess-up took place after Rashid had spoken of Anushka Sharma as one of his favorite female actors in an Instagram Q&A.

It was predicted that the numerous mentions of the two might have caused an error in the Google search engine. The results had people shocked and confused before the goof-up was finally fixed.
