Afghanistan will only develop as a Test-playing nation if they are given more opportunities, says Rashid Khan.
Afghanistan are not involved in the World Test Championship, despite being awarded five-day status by the International Cricket Council in 2017.
A one-off Test against Australia in Perth this winter has been postponed because of Covid-19.
“To become a big player you have to play against the best,” Rashid told the TMS does the IPL podcast.
“When I came to the IPL at 17, I saw the players, their workouts and fitness, the net sessions and I realised how much work I needed to do to be much better and more consistent.
“We have played against Australia twice in five years – in the two World Cups – and it’s the same with England and New Zealand.
