Star Afghani bowler Rashid Khan spun the Adelaide Strikers to victory against the Sydney Thunder on Monday night just hours after the death of his father — the man Rashid labelled “the most important person in my life”.

The Strikers released a statement on Monday afternoon confirming Rashid would face the Thunder at the Adelaide Oval on New Year’s Eve, even though his dad passed away on Sunday night. Adelaide said Rashid would play “in honour of his late father”.

Rashid then produced a match-turning spell for the Strikers, dismissing Thunder duo Jason Sangha and Daniel Sams to finish with 2-34 in his side’s 20-run victory.
