When Adelaide Strikers was batting, Rashid khan was seen with a bat that had depression on the back, that bat was by termed as a camel by cricket.com.au.

With the special bat, Rashid Khan smashed 16-ball 25 with a strike rate of 156.25. His innings featured two fours and two sixes as in the first innings, the Adelaide Strikers posted a total of 155/6.
Then the Afghan spinner returned to bowl a brilliant spell in which he only gave away 15 runs in four overs and took two wickets. Rashid managed to end the Big Bash League confrontation with his team’s best economy rate.
The power-packed display of Rashid Khan helped Adelaide Strikers bring Melbourne Renegades defending champions up to the top of the BBL points table. The exciting half-century of Aaron Finch was unable to save the Renegades this season from succumbing to a fourth loss in a row.
Early in the second innings, Greg Davidson’s match was witness to a curious moment of courtesy. Once Rashid Khan pleaded for a plumb lbw against Beau Webster, Davidson lifted his finger to his head before pulling it back and rubbing his nose instead.
