Rashid Khan might play against South Africa
Afghanistan leg spinner Rashid Khan is expected to be fit for the game against South Africa on Saturday after getting a big blow on his head during the game against New Zealand.
Afghanistan are unlucky in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 so far with injuries and consecutive losses. To add more into their worries, their star player Rashid Khan got some serious injury issue in the last game as he stuck with a big blow in his head while batting against New Zealand.
Star spinner Rashid did not come out to bowl after being hit on the head by a sharp Ferguson bouncer in the first innings. Afghanistan eventually suffered their third loss in a row here on Saturday.
Rashid underwent a concussion test and thereafter it was decided that he would not take the field for the remainder of the game. The latest update on the leggie’s health is that he is recovering well and he might be able to play against South Africa on Saturday.
“He’s feeling now better. The doctor said don’t go to the field but now he’s feeling well. So he needed rest. So obviously we have a couple of days. He’s fine now,” Naib, Afghan skipper said. Also the leggie passed the concussion protocols test by ICC after a day from he got injured.
