However, Rashid's celebrations were also subdued during the game.
The Afghanistan leg-spinner's father passed away on Sunday (December 30) but despite the immense loss, he decided to stay on in Australia and play for the Strikers at the Adelaide Oval.
Rashid's efforts, along with Ingram's 75 in the first innings and Peter Siddle's three-for, helped the Strikers beat Thunder by 20 runs.
Today I lost the most important person in my life,father-the everlasting candle.Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.
