A fast-medium bowler, Rashid Khan got his international call-up against Sri Lanka in 1981-82 after a player strike left the national side without several first-choice selections. He did creditably with the ball, but made his mark with the bat, scoring 59 and 43 not out at No. 10. He was a little unfortunate to miss out on the tour of England that followed, but he was in the squad for the World Cup there in 1983. He toured Australia in 1983-84, taking 3 for 129 in his only Test appearance, and thereafter was rather pigeonholed as a one-day specialist. His final Test outing came in 1984-85 when he was flown out to New Zealand as injury cover. He continued to play first-class cricket for almost another decade, before going on to manage the Under-19 side and undertake coaching work.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
