A furious Rashid Khan threw his bat to the ground during the last over of the match between Afghanistan and Bangladesh during the last game of the T20 World Cup 2024 Super Eight Fixture, which took place on June 25. The 25-year-old cricketer attacked the ball up in the air and had been looking for a double when the incident happened on the third ball of the last over. However, his partner, Karim Janat, turned down the second, which angered the Afghan skipper.

The Gujarat Titans star, known for his aggressive batting technique, tried a helicopter shot off Bangladesh bowler Tanzim Hasan Sakib. He received an edge that sent the ball looping through the covers instead of striking the mid-wicket boundary. Following that, the stylish right-handed batter found a chance to put more pressure on the fielders and ran for a second run. However, Karim Janat seems to have already made up his mind about the strike and sent him back with aggression.

Rashid smashed his bat at Janat out of frustration over the lost chances, shocking spectators and cricket experts. However, in an effort to calm down the situation, Janat went up to speak with Rashid, but the captain looked genuinely tired and walked away, still unhappy. The entire commentary box would come bursting out laughing, with pundits like Ian Smith and Tom Moody finding it hard to keep up their laughter. Smith said he had never seen something similar happen before during his commentary.
