Srinagar: Known for his spin mastery, Afghanistan superstar Rashid Khan on Monday surprised everyone by launching a 99m six in the ongoing PSL 2023.
Shaheen Afridi-led Lahore Qalandars registered a big win over the Shadab Khan-led Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Batting first, the Qalandars scored 200/7 in 20 overs with Abdullah Shafique top-scoring with a 24-ball 45.
In reply, Islamabad were all out for 90 in 13.5 overs. While David Wiese took three wickets for Qalandars, Rashid Khan and Sikandar Raza took two wickets each.
Rashid Khan also contributed with the bat, scoring 18 off 12 balls. His innings included two fours and a six.
The six came in the 19th over of the innings against Tom Curran. On the third ball of the over, Rashid hoicked Curran over midwicket as the ball sailed into the stands. Later, PSL tweeted that it was a huge 99m maximum.
In January, Rashid, while playing for MI Cape Town in the SA20 League, became the second bowler ever to take 500 wickets in the shortest format of the game.
