The Australian cricketer believes that the experience of BBL will work in Rashid. He said, “I would like to decide that I should put pressure on them so that they can make changes in their length. There will be some experience playing against them, but in reality, when you face them, it is a bit difficult.” In practice matches where Afghanistan defeated Pakistan.
