Over the last few years, the leg-spinner has also been very handy with the bat. When asked about whether he is working on his batting, Rashid said,
“Definitely. I think for the last one and a half years, I have been working on my batting where the team needs it at the end, 15-25 runs, they are very crucial for the team while setting and chasing the target. So, just trying my best to do a few things.”
