New Delhi. T20 cricket is considered a batsman’s game. In this format, bowlers are often beaten fiercely. All the bowlers are often seen troubled by the rain of sixes and fours. But there is also a bowler in this T20 format who is probably not a human but an alien. We are talking about Rashid Khan, whose name has been recorded in T20 cricket, which is difficult to even imagine. Perhaps this is the reason why they are being compared to aliens.
Actually, Rashid Khan has scored such a century in T20 International, about which you will be shocked to hear. Rashid Khan has not given a single boundary in 106 balls in T20 cricket. In T20 cricket, where the batsman often dominates the bowlers, it is really a big deal not to hit a single four or six in 106 balls. This ‘century’ of Rashid Khan is heavy on the centuries of many batsmen.
How Rashid Khan made special ‘Shatak’
Rashid Khan started this record with the first T20 International against UAE. In the first T20 against UAE, he did not give any boundary on two balls. After this, in the second and third T20, he did not hit any boundary on all 24-24 balls against UAE. In the first two T20 matches against Pakistan in Sharjah, Rashid Khan did not give any boundary in 24-24 balls.
