So there are many fans across the border for the six-machine of India, Yuvraj Singh. Lately, an Afghan, who just got bagged an Indian Premier League contract with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rashid Khan’s world has taken a 360 degree turn for the better. Oh yes, he will have the likes of David Warner and Yuvraj Singh for company in the dressing room. He is all but 18, he must be feeling the world is ‘Alice In Wonderland’.
In a recent interview to Indian media he spoke extensively about life and how it changed after the contract, he said, “IPL is the biggest league in the world, much bigger than playing associate cricket. I have started working harder ever since the IPL auction. It feels unreal that I will be sharing the dressing room with the players, I have grown up watching on television.” The humble cricketer also says his ‘world’ has changed since.
On his wish he said, “I have been a huge Yuvraj fan since childhood. I really like his aggressive style. Hopefully, I will get to spend time with him and get an insight into his cricketing knowledge.”
The Nangarghar-born also added, “It will also be very special to be with support staff comprising former players like Tom Moody, VVS Laxman and Muttiah Muralitharan. I spoke to Moody sir after the auction. He welcomed me into the squad.”
