Afghanistan's megical leg spinner Rashid Khan makes history in the world of cricket

ISLAMABAD - Afghanistan's magical leg spinner Rashid Khan makes history in the world of cricket.

He became the first bowler to bag four wickets off successive deliveries in Twenty20 Internationals. Rashid's impressive bowling performance in the final game also helped Afghanistan sweep the T20I series against Ireland in Dehradun.

Chasing 211 for a win, Ireland were restricted to 178 for 8 from their 20 overs thanks to Rashid Khan's sensational bowling performance.

Rashid became the seventh bowler in the T20I history to bag a hat-trick and in the process also completed his second five-wicket haul in the format.

Rashid completed his maiden hat-trick off the second ball of the 18th over when he had Shane Getkate out stumped.
