Is Rashid Khan the best t20 spinner in the world? Regardless of his 'age', he is clearly a talent and spins out everyone he plays, but is there anyone better at this format or does he rule t20?

Adil Rashid better than his namesake, closely followed by Azeem Rafiq.

Isn't that the same as asking if a championship player is the best forward in England cos he has 30 in 20 games?
