Naturally, Rashid is one of the figureheads of the GT team; but only the young people of the Titans want to be inspired by his book. Lucknow Super Giants and Indian bowler Ravi Bishnoi is also one of the bowlers who has spoken to Rashid “several times”, and the Afghan bowler believes the 21-year-old could be a “big star for India”.

“Bishnoi is a young talent. I spoke to him quite a few times. In the years to come, he will be a big star for India. If he trusts his skills and continues to support them, he will definitely be a great bowler for India,” Rashid said. cricket.com.

The leg-spinner also spoke in detail about Yuzvendra Chahal during the chat, insisting that he is one of the best leggies out there.

“Definitely the way he played for RCB and India, he is the best spinner. He got the tough overs for India and RCB which is very tough. He played most games at Bangalore, which is a smaller ground, and he showed his skills brilliantly,” Rashid said.
