There's a reason why Rashid Khan is in demand to play across all T20 leagues around the world, and likely to be by the counties in England once he plays his first Test match in June, it is Rashid's hugely amazing skillset at such a young age that has captured everyone's imagination and has made him one of the best limited overs cricketers around the world.

Rashid is currently playing his second season of the Indian Premier League for Sunrisers Hyderabad, he played his first Big Bash League season for Adelaide Strikers recently and was signed to play by Sussex in the T20 competition in England. He has been playing in the Caribbean Premier League too. This has made him the most attractive cricketer but has also signaled a danger that the young man might not be able to manage his focus as he is about to play his country's maiden Test match when they play against India in June.

But Rashid has cleared that it is not the case with him at all. Recently the Afghanistan Cricket Board(ACB) chairman tweeted and tagged Rashid in it, that, "Thanks for the offers from those who want @rashidkhan_19. I know he is in high demand everywhere but he is not going anywhere anytime because he is a proud and patriotic Afghan"

The Rashid Khan reply to this became famous instantly and should inspire many young cricketers around the world. He wrote, "Sure Mr. Chairman, @mashalAtif I am proud Afghan and I will stay in my country and will work and fight for our nation. We spread peace and our country needs us"
