Afghan cricket athletes and spin sensations Rashid Khan and Mujeeb-Ur-Rehman will likely come face-to-face in the upcoming IPL match scheduled for Thursday.

The match between Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad will be played on Thursday evening in Chandigarh.

Rashid Khan will likely appear in tomorrow’s match as he has already played in three IPL matches so far and has managed to take two wickets.

Mujeeb-Ur-Rehman has also appeared in three IPL matches for Kings XI Punjab but has taken three wickets.

Another key Afghan cricketer Mohammad Nabi has also been contracted for the IPL matches by Sunrisers Hyderabad but he has so far not played in any of the matches.

It is yet not clear if Nabi will appear in the match against Kings XI Punjab tomorrow or not.

This comes as Rashid Khan managed to set a record in IPL matches during his appearance against Mumbai Indians last week.

Scoring a economy rate of 3.25, Khan bowled four overs during last night’s match and gave only 13 runs while the Mumbai Indian batsmen could not score a even a single run from his 18 other deliveries.

He was awarded the man of the match with a cash of prize of INR 100,000 for his outstanding performance.
