Star spinner Rashid Khan says winning the ICC T20I Cricketer of the Decade award is a special achievement for a player from an emerging country like Afghanistan.
The 22-year-old leg-spinner was the highest wicket-taker in T20 Internationals in the past 10 years with 89 scalps at an average of 12.62. He had three four-wicket hauls and two five-fors during this period.
“I am speechless after this award. For someone from Afghanistan to get this award, it’s a special moment for me, for my country and for my fans,” he said in a video message posted on ICC’s Twitter page.
