Afghan teenager has English counties in a spin

AFP  |  London 

Afghanistan teenage leg spin ace Rashid Khan is being courted by two English counties according to Wednesday's Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old -- who earlier this month produced the fourth best bowling figures ever in ODI cricket, taking seven for 18 to destroy the West Indies batting line-up in Saint Lucia -- has taken 63 wickets in 29 ODI's and 42 in 27 Twenty20 appearances for his country.

However, according to the newspaper the problem regarding Khan -- who is higher than any of the English bowlers in both the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI and T20 rankings -- is whether he passes strict work visa regulations.
