Former England player Kevin Pietersen has revealed that Rashid Khan is worried about his family in Afghanistan and he is not able to get his family members out of the country. The flight operations have stopped due to the turmoil in Afghanistan.
The star spinner is currently playing for Trent Rockets in the inaugural edition of the Hundred in the UK.
“There’s a lot of things that are happening at home. We had a long chat here on the boundary talking about it and he’s worried: he can’t get his family out of Afghanistan and there’s a lot of things happening for him,” Pietersen said on Sky Sports.
“For him to turn up and put on a performance like this under the pressure that he is currently under… for him to be able to forget that stuff and navigate his story and continue the momentum that he has — I think that’s probably one of the most heart-warming stories of this Hundred so far,” he added.
Taliban has assumed control of the entire country and the common people are worried about their future.
