England woman star all-rounder Danielle Wyatt and Afghanistan star bowler Rashid Khan shared pleasantries on Twitter on Monday.
It was Rashid who initiated the conversation. The young Afghan spinner wished Wyatt for her record century in the 3rd T20I against India.
Wyatt smashed her career-best 124 off just 64 balls as England Women chased down a record total against India Women in Mumbai on Sunday. She hit 15 fours, and five sixes as England chased down a total of 198 set by India with eight balls to spare. It was the highest successful run chase ever in Women’s T20 international.
Wyatt also became the second woman cricketer after Deandra Dottin to score two centuries in T20Is. She scored her first T20I hundred against Australia in November last year.
Rashid Khan congratulated Danielle Wyatt for the same on Twitter.
“Well played @Danni_Wyatt for you good 💯 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻,” Rashid tweeted.

Wyatt was quick to return the favor, congratulating Rashid for completing 100 wickets in ODIs.
“Thankyou Rash! Appreciate it. Congrats on 💯 wickets 👏🏼👏🏼,” Wyatt replied.

The Afghani lad became the fastest bowler to pick 100 ODI wickets during the final game against West Indies in the ICC World Cup Qualifiers 2018.
In his 44th ODI, Rashid achieved this feat by dismissing Shai Hope.
