Rashid Khan Choose PSL 2021 instead of English County
The Afghan cricketer has a contract to play for Sussex in the County League. However, at the same time, the schedule of PSL matches also fell. As a result, he was worried about which PSL or County would play. Eventually, Rashid Khan decided he would go to play county after finishing the rest of the PSL 2021 matches.
At present, the number of franchise-based leagues is constantly increasing. India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and West Indies are regularly organizing T20 leagues. As a result, cricketers are having a busy time in these leagues. Popular T20 cricketer Rashid Khan is also in high demand in these leagues.
He will miss five county matches as the PSL is over. However, he expressed his gratitude to Sussex for showing the matter in a positive way.
Rashid Khan said, ‘I have played only two matches in this year’s PSL. Then he had to leave because of the national team game. I also had the opportunity to play county in England. But I have chosen PSL.
The Afghan cricketer will not play five matches for Sussex. But he also thanked Sussex for making the matter easier. “Thanks to Sussex, they understand me,” said Rashid Khan. I had the opportunity to miss five county matches or play the rest of the PSL. I chose PSL because my supporters want me here. ‘
Rashid Khan thinks that the quality of Afghan cricketers is also improving due to PSL. “It’s a great thing for those coming from Afghanistan to play in the PSL, playing with world-renowned cricketers,” he said. We have a lot of young players who haven’t had a chance in other leagues yet. So PSL is their opportunity to show their ability.
