  • Ultimate XI T20 Bowler: Rashid Khan  Ultimate XI T20 Bowler: Rashid Khan 

    Marketing leg-spinner's modern face with chic, Rashid Khan outnumbers leg-breaks with googlies, something he has perfected into a reliable and somewhat retaliatory weapon, executing it with very little change in action. Having doted on Shahid Afridi's modus operandi since childhood, Rashid bowls similar lines - linear, from stump to stump - and does so at a quick pace, rebelliously using his fingers more than the wrists, thus not allowing the batsman any time to shimmy out and get to the pitch of the ball.

    The T20I debut for Rashid came a few days after his ODI debut on October 26, 2015 at Bulawayo against Zimbabwe. The Afghan team won the match by 6 wickets and Rashid took one wicket in the match.

    Since then his importance to the Afghanistan team and for any team he joins on the T20 circuit cannot be understated. Today there is no bowler with a better T20I average, and no bowler in IPL history has ever had a better economy than the 6.55 Rashid boasts.

    Picked for the Indian squad for the four-Test tour against the West Indies in 2016, KL Rahul played in the second Test at Jamaica and scored 158, his highest Test score then.

    In the process, he became the first Indian opener to score a century in his debut Test in the West Indies.

    In the first match of the T20I series in the United States, he scored a century off 46 balls in a losing cause, the second-fastest ever and fastest by an Indian. He also set the world record for being the only player to score a hundred in his first innings as an opener in both Tests and ODIs.

    Rahul set the record for the fastest batsman to have scored centuries in all three formats in just 20 innings surpassing the record of Ahmed Shehzad who took 76 innings.

    He is the first player in T20I history to score a century when batting at the number 4 position or lower (110*). On July 3, 2018, Rahul smashed his second T20 International ton against England. He is also the first Indian batsman to be dismissed hit-wicket in T20Is.
