Afghanistan's young leg-spinning prodigy Rashid Khan has been making the batsmen world over dance to his tunes in recent times. He has a variety of deliveries to bamboozle batsmen who are still unable to pick him both off the hand or off the wicket. 

Recently, Scotland skipper Kyle Coetzer has came up with a name wherein he has named the player who can play the mystery spinner in the best possible way. 

Kyle Coetzer, in his tweet, cited that the best way to tackle a spinner who has a very good wrong ‘un is by playing sweep against him. He reckons any player with a good sweep shot can succeed against someone like Rashid. To cite an example, he named Scotland cricketer Calum MacLeod as one such player. MacLeod had scored a brilliant 157 in a World Cup Qualifier game against Afghanistan earlier this year. He expressed his disappointment over the fact that the franchises are not picking up players like MacLeod in their sides.

However, much to his surprise, fans failed to understand what Coetzer has tried to say through his tweet, rather started criticising him. The Scotland skipper later clarified as to what he exactly did he mean with another tweet to conclude his argument.

Speaking off Rashid, he took 8 wickets to help Afghanistan whitewash Bangladesh in a three-match T20I series held in Dehradun.
