When the Taliban took control of Kabul last Sunday, Rashid Khan expressed concern about the safety of his family in Afghanistan. He called on world leaders to take steps to maintain peace in the country.
Rashid’s tweet on the eve of Afghanistan’s Independence Day was the key to Afghanistan’s dream of a peaceful, prosperous and united Afghanistan.
Rashid yesterday spread the Afghan spirit in The Hundred, a 100-ball cricket tournament in England. Tomorrow Rashid’s team Trent Rockets faced Southern Brave in the boys’ section eliminator of the tournament. In this Afghan leg-spinner match, he could not shine with his bat and ball, his team also lost.
However, Rashid Khan’s unspoken message has become an important issue in the Taliban-Afghanistan news series. In the match, Rashid Khan drew the flag of Afghanistan on his cheek.
The Taliban have taken control of Afghanistan shortly after US troops announced their withdrawal from the country. Discussions about how the country will function, what Afghanistan’s political-cultural-economic appearance will look like under the Taliban regime, and how women will be treated – have been going on since the Taliban took over Afghanistan. There are also concerns about human safety. Many want to leave Afghanistan.
Many have even hung up on the wings and wings of a plane in a desperate attempt to fly out of Afghanistan, even though it meant certain death. Meanwhile, Zaki Anwari, a member of the Afghan national football team, was one of those who lost his life in a desperate attempt to leave Afghanistan in the landing gear (wheel) of a US plane.
Of these, cricket is the backbone, but it is still under discussion. Rashid Khan is also in the discussion.
A few days ago, during a match at The Hundred, Rashid told former England batsman Kevin Pietersen that he was worried about the safety of his family in Afghanistan.
Petersen then summed up the conversation with Rashid by saying, ‘A lot is happening in his country! We stood on the side of the border and talked for a long time. He is very worried. He is unable to bring his family out of Afghanistan. He thinks a lot is going on. ‘
However, in that match against Manchester Originals, Rashid took 3 wickets for only 16 runs, leaving all worries aside! But Rashid did not shine with the bat-ball against Southern Brave tomorrow. He was dismissed for 2 off 9 balls with the bat, while his team Trent Rockets was all out for just 96 runs.
Then it was seen while bowling, Rashid came on the field with the black-red-green flag of Afghanistan on both cheeks.
