The Afghan spin sensation Rashid Khan says the upcoming historic test match between Afghanistan and India will be a test of patience as he emphasized to maintain his bowling style.

“Being a Test cricketer is not a lot different to playing ODIs and T20s,” the 19-year-old Rashid, the world’s No.1 T20 bowler, told PTI.

Rashid Khan further added that “I have done well in whatever four-day opportunities that I have got. If I make changes in my bowling thinking about the Test, it will not be good for me. I will bowl with the same speed I have been bowling so far.”

“I have to make sure that I don’t panic. I know there will be a phase where I won’t pick up a wicket for 20 overs. And I could pick up two in two overs. It is Test cricket,” he explained.

“It is going to be a test of patience. There is a possibility that I might end up being wicketless,” he conceded.

The historic test match between Afghanistan and India will kick off from 14th of June and will be played in Bengaluru city of India.

This is the first time the Afghan national cricket team is playing a test match after ICC granted Afghanistan the test status.
