Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan insists he is focused on the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, and not on tying the knot anytime soon. However, as per the quotes in AFP, Rashid told that rumors over his private life in the run-up to the tournament, currently underway in Oman and the UAE, will not derail his ambitions.

Rashid Khan explained, “I will marry when Afghanistan win a World Cup. Actually, I was so shocked when I heard this because, to be honest, I never made a statement that I will marry once I win the World Cup. I just said that in the next few years I have more cricket and three World Cups (the 2021 and 2022 Twenty20 World Cups and the 50-over World Cup in 2023) so my focus will be on cricket rather than on getting married.”

Talking about teh same T20 World Cup, Rashid Khan siad, “I think it will be a spinners´ World Cup. The wickets here are mostly very good for spinners, so I think that’s the main reason most of the teams have more spinners in their attack. What I noticed during the Indian Premier League (the conclusion of which was also played in the UAE) was that wickets were good but there was not that much spin.”
