England’s batswoman, Danielle Wyatt has sent her best wishes to Sunrisers Hyderabad talisman spinner Rashid Khan.

The Afghanistan spinner has impressed in this season of the IPL. The leg-spinner has scalped 21 wickets in the 16 matches he has played for the Orange Army.

In fact, Rashid Khan had a perfect last game against Kolkata Knight Riders in the second qualifier. Firstly, Rashid scored a quickfire 34 runs off just ten balls to power Sunrisers Hyderabad’s total to 174. Secondly, he also affected a run-out and took two catches in the deep.

Last but not the least, he did what he does best with the ball. Rashid scalped three wickets and gave away only 19 in his four-over quota. Thus, Rashid Khan is once again going to hold the key in the final contest of the IPL 2018.

Meanwhile, Danielle Wyatt also recently played in the Women T20 challenge exhibition match.

She represented Supernovas against Trailblazers, as she scored 24 runs while opening the innings with Mithali Raj.

Wyatt has played 56 One-Day Internationals for the England team. The 27-year old has scored 693 runs in the 45 innings she has played.

Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings will lock horns against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the final of the 11th season of the IPL.

Men in Yellow have made their way into the final for the seventh time in the IPL folklore. Out of the previous six times that the MS Dhoni-led team had played the finale, they have won on two occasions. Thus, they have two IPL titles under their belt.

“Good luck tonight lads ??? #IPLFinal @rashidkhan_19 @sachinbabyy”.

Rashid Khan also replied to Wyatt’s post as he said Thank you.
