Records Broken in Rashid Khan's Maiden Test Victory as Captain


*Youngest Ever Test captain at 20 years and 350 days

*1st player to score a fifty with the bat and pick up a 10 wicket haul(11-104) in his debut game as captain.

*He is only the 3rd captain to score a fifty and pick up 10+ wickets in the same game after Allan Border and Imran Khan.

*Rashid is now also the youngest captain to achieve the rare double of a 5-for and 50+ in the same Test.

*Previously, former England captain Sheldon Jackson (1905), Pakistan’s Imran Khan (1982) and Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan (2009) are the only other players to have scored a fifty and picked up a fifer on their captaincy debut.

Fun Fact : Bangladesh is the first team to lose at least one Test match to 10 Test playing nations.

Rashid Khan dedicated his Player of the Match award to Mohammad Nabi, who was playing in his last Test match after Afghanistan's win over Bangladesh.
