Explained: Why is Rashid Khan not in Afghanistan’s ODI XI against Sri Lanka? | SL vs AF
The Afghanistan spinner, who represented Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2023, played the final against Chennai Super Kings earlier this week. He, however, did not take part in the presentation ceremony that followed after GT lost the game, with reports suggesting that he flew straight to Sri Lanka in the early hours of May 30, moments after the final ended, for the three-match ODI series against Afghanistan from June 2.
However, he was not named in the XI for the first ODI on Friday.
