Afghanistan leggie Rashid Khan said on Saturday that he won't play franchise cricket at the expense of national duty. Rashid, who partook in the 2022 edition of the Pakistan Super League, joined his teammates right before Afghanistan's tour of Bangladesh was about to begin and there were reports that he could leave the series halfway to be with the Lahore Qalandars for the final of the tournament. Rashid, however, confirmed on Twitter that he wasn't leaving Bangladesh to link up with his PSL team, putting the speculation to rest.
