In Janurya, Rashid, while playing for MI Cape Town in the SA20 League, became the second bowler ever to take 500 wickets in the shortest format of the game. Rashid achieved the feat by dismissing Clyde Fortuin in the 14th over during the match against Pretoria Capitals. West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is the only other cricketer to take 500 wickets in the T20s.
Rashid has been an integral part of the Afghanistan cricket team for quite some time, and he has also proved his mettle in T20 leagues all around the world.
