Afghanistan’s spinner Rashid Khan needs no introduction. In no time he has become one of the prominent spinners in the world. The leggie is currently ranked one in T20 Internationals and second in One-Day Internationals (ODIs). Also in Indian Premier League (IPL), Rashid is known for his match-winning abilities. The spinner recently took to Twitter and uploaded a video of his brothers playing cricket in his home compound. In the video, Rashid’s elder brother Amir Khan can be seen bowling a perfect leg spin.
“This is how from where I start my ckt (sic) playing with brothers at home big bro @amirkhan6362 has some skills to turn the ball #familylegspinners,” Rashid tweeted along with the video. We must say bowling leg spin is truly in their genes.

Afghanistan recently made their Test debut against India. However, it proved to be a forgettable experience for the side. The debutants lost the Test by an innings and 262 runs. Rashid managed to pick only two wickets during the Test as he proved to be ineffective. The leg-spinner gave away 154 runs from his 34.5 overs.
With Afghanistan expected to play more Tests in future, Rashid will definitely be looking to improve his game in the longer format as well. The 19-year-old no doubt has the potential to be number one in Test cricket as well. Rashid has thus far played 43 ODIs and 33 T20Is and has scalped picked 100 and 57 wickets respectively.
