Born in England with a Pakistani heritage, Rashid marked his entry into the world of international cricket by making his T20 International debut in 2009, facing the Netherlands. However, it was in 2015 that the right-arm spinner had a breakthrough moment when he made his Test debut, demonstrating his remarkable skills by claiming a five-wicket haul against the nation from which his family originates.
Australian cricket enthusiasts hold vivid memories of Rashid’s exceptional bowling performance during BBL|05 as he represented the Adelaide Strikers. His notable contributions earned him the second spot on the Official Bowler Rankings at the conclusion of the regular season. This remarkable achievement was made possible under the guidance of Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie.
