'Fizz, Rashid good enough for BBL'
Next summer's Australian Big Bash League could feature its first-ever players from Bangladesh and Afghanistan after Sydney Sixers captain Moises Henriques said that teams would be 'silly' to not look into talents like Mustafizur Rahman and Rashid Khan.
Rashid, the teenage spin sensation, has taken the lucrative T20 tournament by storm this year, picking up 14 wickets in 12 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Rashid also boasts an economy-rate of 6.52, which is the lowest of any of the top-10 leading IPL wicket-takers.
"I still can't pick him [Rashid] in the nets. He bowls nearly 100km/h and gets the ball to spin a little bit both ways. It is something definitely worth contemplating for the Sixers.
"I think teams will be silly to pass off the opportunity to not signing guys just because they are from developing cricketing nations. Players such as Rashid and also Mustafizur, I've been lucky enough to play with both of them and they have been able to mix it with the very best in the world and I'm sure they are good enough to be in the BBL competition."
