Limited overs specialist Rashid Khan is looking forward to take on Australia in Whites next year. Being the newest member of the Test playing nations, Rashid reckons it is more than a dream to play Australia in Australia.

“From Afghanistan, playing Test cricket against Australia in Australia it’s more than a dream. Afghanistan got the full membership and last we played against India in India and now we’re playing against Ireland in India and then Australia here,” quoted Rashid, as saying.

“Being a player, it means a lot. Against Australia, playing Test matches is a huge achievement and me and the players are really looking forward (to it). We played here (in T20 games) a lot but, Test cricket is very different. Pretty excited to face the quick bowlers here, big bouncy wickets,” he added.

He said wickets in Australia are bowling friendly and he is hoping to not get a juicy track like Perth when they take on the home team.

“As we have seen against India, I think wickets are very tough here to bat on, especially in the Test cricket. I hope that we don’t play in Perth, we play somewhere else on a good wicket to make some runs and a little bit good for the spinner as well,” Rashid said.
