Afghanistan star cricketer Rashid Khan recently shared his team's celebration when they registered a great win over Pakistan's side during the ODI World Cup 2023 league stage game, which took place at M.A. Chidambaram Cricket Stadium in Chennai. Speaking about the game, the Babar Azam-led side posted 282 runs in the given 50 overs. However, during the chase, the Afghanistan side was on a roll to get to the total with over to spare.

The great all-rounder has revealed that he danced and partied a lot after registering a win over Pakistan. The 25-year-old cricketer also expressed how his sports manager was reminding him about his health during the party. In addition, the leg spinner revealed that his whole side was ecstatic and shocked to see him in such a different mood.

"After our win against Pakistan, for the entire night, I danced and celebrated a lot, from the ground to the hotel. I did not stop until late in the night. I was not behaving like someone who had a back issue. Our physio kept reminding me I needed to be careful. The entire Afghanistan squad was surprised to see me dancing and celebrating - they had never seen me in that kind of mood," Rashid Khan said on ESPNCricinfo Cricket Monthly.

It was my first ever surgery in my career: Rashid Khan

The stylish right-handed batter also shared his injury updates and some shocking talks, which may have damaged his career.

"After the World Cup, I decided to go for the surgery. The doctor said to me, 'This is your first MRI and this is your second MRI, after the World Cup. I was nervous, to be honest. It was my first ever surgery in my career. One thing the doctor told me prior to surgery was that maybe it could be the end of my career," he added further.
