Strikers star's brave decision after tragedy


//

Adelaide Strikers star Rashid Khan suffered a personal loss prior to his side's Big Bash League clash against the Sydney Thunder.

The club announced that Khan's father passed away a night before the New Year's Eve match.

Despite the tragedy, Khan advised the Strikers that he still wanted to play "in honour of his late father. "

The Afghani legspinning maestro has been outstanding throughout this season's BBL, with an 8.20 average and a phenomenal economy rate of 3.41 runs conceded per over.

"The Strikers give their condolences and full support to Rashid and his family during this difficult time," the Strikers said in a statement.

"The family have asked that their privacy is respected."

Strikers captain Colin Ingram won the toss and decided to bat, as they aim to extend their perfect six-from-six record in the traditional end-of-year fixture at Adelaide Oval.

The match comes at a time where the Strikers are also trying to avoid their third-straight BBL loss.
