Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan had a disappointing day with the ball against England as he leaked 110 runs in 9 overs. Batting first, England rode on Eoin Morgan’s aggressive knock of 148 runs off 71 balls. Morgan smashed Afghanistan’s two front line spinners, Rashid and Nabi all around the park.
Following this, Rashid faced some heat on social media but the cricketing fraternity came in his support.
We’ve just heard that Rashid Khan has scored Afghanistan’s first century of the #CWC19! Wow! 110 from 56 balls. The most runs ever scored by a bowler in the World Cup or something. Well batted young man. #ENGvAFG #AFGvENG pic.twitter.com/3vklzCeIJt— Iceland Cricket (@icelandcricket) June 18, 2019

Rubbish tweet. Rather than trying to be funny why not be respectful to someone that has done so much for cricket and especially associate members ???? https://t.co/0z3F8KiS82— Luke Wright (@lukewright204) June 18, 2019
