Afghanistan all-rounder Rashid Khan was seen in beast mode during Australia vs Afghanistan Match 39 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 on Tuesday, November 07 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Walking in to bat at number seven, Rashid played a quick-fire innings of 35* (18) smashing two fours and three sixes and helped Afghanistan post a good score of 291/5 in their allotted 50 overs.

One of his shots left everyone present at the stadium flabbergasted as he hit a ‘no-look’ six against Mitchell Starc. On the fifth ball of the 50th over, Rashid audaciously pulled a bouncer from Starc towards the crowd at deep square leg for a maximum. The shot even left former Australia captain Ricky Ponting stunned who’s known for his splendid pull shots.
