KXIP vs SRH: Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan stands out in high-scoring affair

first_imgAfghanistan’s Rashid Khan continued to impress one and all as he stood out in a high-scoring tie between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, where Hyderabad beat Punjab by 26 runs in Mohali.Rashid returned with figures of 1/16 on a batting pitch and when Shaun Marsh was going on a rampage in Punjab’s chase of 208 after Hyderabad’s brilliant first-innings effort.Batting first, Hyderabad got off to a flyer courtesy of David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan, reaching 100 runs in just nine overs before Warner fell for 51 with the scores on 107/1 from 10 overs. Dhawan continued the slog fest, hammering the bowlers around in a very good pitch before falling for 77 off 48 balls. But, that was not it as Kane Williamson showed again that he can be as good a T20 player as he is in the longest format, when he scored 54* off just 27 balls to take SRH’s score to 207/3 in their 20 overs.Punjab also got off to flyer thanks to Martin Guptill, who replaced the injured Hashim Amla in the squad, who hit 23 off just 11 balls before holding out to Moises Henriques off the bowling falling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Punjab also lost Vohra in quick succession but Shaun Marsh was looking dangerous as he took 17 runs of Deepak Hooda’s over and was looking to up the ante.Punjab were going strong on 67/3 from seven overs and that is when Warner threw the ball to the ball to the ever-so dependable Rashid and he didn’t disappoint.The 19-year-old gave just three runs off his first over and followed it up with just one run from his second over to put the brakes on the scoring, leaving Punjab at 76/3 from 10 overs as the asking rate kept mounting. He conceded eight of his third over but returned with a bang in his fourth and picked up the all important wicket of Eoin Morgan for 26, who was just looking dangerous and join Marsh and hit the accelerator. He gave away just six runs off his last over and finished with figures of 4-0-16-1, with Punjab on 121/4 from 14 overs, needing 87 runs to win from just 36 balls.advertisementRashid, who was awarded the man-of-the-match for being so effective in the middle overs thanked the team and coaching staff for his success.”It’s a big league and it’s a big stage, playing with big names. So always trying my best to learn from them. We have a very good coaching staff. Murali has been superb so far with me and is supporting me and is giving me all his experience. I’m enjoying myself with him. The confidence and the motivation given from the coaching staff and the skipper helps,” he said.He also thanked his brother for his continued support before signing off.”I would like to dedicate this award to my brother. He has prayed for me and this goes to him.”last_img read more
