Summary

  • The latest stage in the uplifting story of Afghanistan cricket will begin at Chelmsford on Wednesday night when Rashid Khan continues his “dream” rise in the game when he makes his debut for Sussex on the opening night of this year’s Vitality Blast.
  • He arrived in Hove on Tuesday morning to meet his new team-mates and link up again with Jason Gillespie, the Sussex coach.
  • Gillespie is a hands off coach, not a tinkerer, and he will allow Rashid to express himself on the south coast knowing how dangerous he can be with his googly.
  • Rashid was the joint top wicket-taker in the Big Bash with 18 at 13.83 apiece and will win games for his new club, particularly if the hot, dry weather continues to bake pitches.
  • “Cricket is like a dream because everything has happened to me and Afghanistan in such a quick period of time,” Rashid told Telegraph Sport.
