Rashid Khan's leadership proved instrumental in Afghanistan's stunning 84-run victory over New Zealand in the T20 World Cup group league. Emphasizing self-belief over opposition strengths, Rashid led by example, capturing four wickets alongside left-arm seamer Fazalhaq Farooqi.

The Afghan team's collective effort stood out. Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran's opening partnership set a solid foundation, while Farooqi's 4/17 from just 3.2 overs sealed New Zealand's fate.

Skipper Rashid lauded the team's effort regardless of the results, stressing the importance of playing with energy and determination. This win is a massive morale booster for Afghanistan's cricket-loving nation, whose fans support their team across any time zone.
