Rashid Khan's contract with the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League has been renewed for the coming season. Since then, the 23-year-old leg spinner joined the franchise in the 2017-18 season and has been a consistent squad member. He's also had a lot of success, which has prompted the team to want to continue with him.
The Afghanistan footballer is presently playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League for the sixth consecutive season. Khan reaffirmed his affection for Adelaide after re-signing with the Strikers. He also mentioned the supporters that have come to see him and his squad in the past at the Adelaide Oval, one of Australia's most beautiful venues.
Khan has had some outstanding outings at the Strikers' home pitch. This includes his hat-trick against the Sydney Sixers during the 2020-21 season.
Khan has impressed in every T20 league he has played in, but his efforts for Strikers have been awe-inspiring. He has appeared in 50 matches for Strikers, taking 72 wickets at a 17.46 average. He has a 16.19 strike rate with the ball, but his economy of 6.47 after so many games is incredible.
In the bottom order, he has also played some vital knocks with the bat. He has a strike rate of 155.45 and has scored 314 runs. His stardom as a top player globally, rather than his numbers, makes it easier for Strikers to create their team around someone like him.
