The King Of T20 Is Not Kohli, It Is Rashid Khan: Social Media Is Full Of Praise For The Afghan Superstar: Last day, Australia won the T20 World Cup Group One match by defeating Afghanistan. Afghanistan surrendered by shaking the Aussies in a match that lasted till the last over.
After losing the toss and batting, Australia scored 168 runs on the strength of Glenn Maxwell’s half-century and Mitchell Marsh’s brilliant performance. Max Well scored 54 runs from 32 balls and Marsh scored 45 runs from 30 balls.
Apart from them, David Warner and Marcus Stoins resisted and the Aussies scored higher. Australia scored 168 runs for eight wickets in 20 overs.
Naveen Ul Haq took three wickets for 21 runs in four overs for Afghanistan. Fazlhaq Farooqi took two wickets and Rashid Khan and Mujibur Rahman took one wicket each.
In reply, Rahmanullah Gurbaz gave Afghanistan a good start. By the time they added 15 runs to the scoreboard, Afghanistan had lost the opener, Usman Ghani. Ibrahim Sadran and Gulbadin Najeeb, who came after, increased the runs.
Gurbaz scored 30 runs off 17 balls, Sadran scored 26 runs off 33 balls and Naib scored 39 runs off 23 balls.
After Captain Muhammad Nabi, who came after them, could not do anything, Afghanistan smelled of defeat. But it was Rashid Khan’s fireworks that shocked the Aussies in Adelaide.
The player scored an unbeaten 48 off 23 balls with four sixes and three fours. Rashid, who started losing, brought Afghanistan close to victory but could not win. Finally, he fell four runs short of the allotted over.
Rashid Khan who rocked Australia is the current star of social media. Rashid Khan has been receiving a flood of accolades.
Rahman ul Haq, the official of Islamabad United in PSL, described the star as the king of the T20 format. It is the best performance of Rashid’s career and there are opinions that Rashid is the best player of all time.
Bharat Army, the fan club of the Indian cricket team, has also come out praising the star’s innings.
Rashid Khan is the KING of this format.

After the win in the last match, the Aussies retained their semi-final chances. The Aussies’ semi-entry will depend on the outcome of today’s England-Sri Lanka match.
