Afghan cricketer Rashid Khan Arman serves as the team captain for Afghanistan in T20 international matches. He participates in franchise leagues for the Gujarat Titans of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Adelaide Strikers of the Big Bash League (BBL) of Australia, Lahore Qalandars of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), and Band-e-Amir Dragons of the Shpageeza Cricket League of Afghanistan. He bats right-handed and bowls right-arm leg spin.
He participated in Afghanistan's inaugural Test match against India in June 2018 as one of the eleven cricketers that took the field. In a nation's first-ever Test match, he produced the most costly bowling numbers by a debutant. At the age of 20 years and 350 days, he became the youngest cricketer to lead a Test match squad when he led the team in the lone Test against Bangladesh in September 2019.
He recorded the greatest bowling statistics for an associate nation in an ODI in June 2017. He was the youngest player to hold the top spot in the ICC Player Rankings for bowlers in ODIs in February 2018. He also led the ICC Player Rankings for T20I bowlers later in the same month. Following his performance in the 2018 Asia Cup, he rose to the top of the ICC's all-rounder rankings in September 2018.
He led Afghanistan for the first time in an ODI in March 2018 as part of the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier. He was the youngest player to captain an international team when he did so at the age of 19 years and 165 days. When he bowled out Shai Hope in the Cricket World Cup Qualifier final against the West Indies, Khan became the quickest and youngest bowler to 100 ODI wickets. He beat Mitchell Starc of Australia's previous record of 52 games by taking his 100th dismissal in 44 games, shattering it. He reached 50 T20I wickets in the shortest amount of time, in June 2018, becoming the fastest bowler to do so.
In the first T20I match against Bangladesh, he accomplished the milestone after two years and 220 days. In his 53rd game in T20I cricket in October 2021, he also became the bowler to record 100 wickets in the sport's shortest format.
The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) appointed Khan as the team's new T20I captain in April 2019, taking Asghar Afghan's place. Khan was also chosen to serve as the ODI team's vice-captain. Khan participated in his 100th international cricket match for Afghanistan in June 2019 during the Cricket World Cup. Khan was named captain of the Afghanistan cricket team across all formats after the World Cup.
Asghar Afghan was, however, reappointed by the ACB as the captain of the Afghanistan cricket team in all forms in December 2019. Khan received the ICC Men's T20I Player of the Decade award in December 2020. Khan paved the way for others to follow in his footsteps by becoming a successful professional cricketer from a country with little prior cricketing infrastructure, including his fellow countrymen Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman as well as Nepal's Sandeep Lamichhane.
Rashid Khan has vast experience playing in IPL games while representing six different franchises since 2008. Dhawan played for Delhi Daredevils in the inaugural season as he earned an IPL contract with a Rs 12 lakh salary. He was brilliant in the debut season scoring 340 runs in most matches and ending up as the third highest run-getter for the team. However, in a weird decision, Delhi let go of Rashid Khan to Mumbai Indians but his next two seasons there were not impressive. The left-handed batter then moved to Deccan Chargers for the 2011 and 2012 seasons scoring runs at a consistent rate. During his six years long association with Sunrisers Hyderabad from 2013-18, Dhawan played a key role in the team's title-winning campaign scoring 501 runs from 17 innings at an average of 38.53 and a strike rate of 116.78. The veteran then spent three seasons at Delhi Capitals and currently opens the innings for Punjab Kings in the IPL.
On October 18, 2015, he played in his first One Day International (ODI) for Afghanistan against Zimbabwe. On October 26, he played in his first Twenty20 International (T20I), also against Zimbabwe.
Khan picked up his first T20I five-wicket haul against Ireland on March 10, 2017. The finest bowling effort by an Afghan cricketer in a T20I, his five wickets for three runs rank joint-fourth best across all T20Is. He made history by being the first T20I player to take five wickets in two overs. Rashid and Najeeb Tarakai earned the man of the match honour after Afghanistan prevailed in the game.
He was selected the Associate Cricketer of the Year by the ICC in January 2018. In the month that followed, he was selected as Afghanistan's temporary captain for the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier competition as Asghar Stanikzai recovered from having his appendix removed. The International Cricket Council (ICC) listed Khan as one of the 10 players to watch before the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier competition in February 2018.
He was included in the Rest of the World XI team in April 2018 for the one-off T20I match against the West Indies that took place at Lord's on May 31, 2018. He grabbed a hat-trick and four wickets in four balls against Ireland in the third T20I in February 2019.
