The 11th edition of the Indian Premier League is in full swing. We have already completed 18 matches in the tournament and has got a vague idea about what might happen in the near future. The Kings XI Punjab has looked in tremendous form and ever since the debut of Chris Gayle for the franchise, Punjab has looked a totally different unit. Courtesy their comprehensive victory against KKR yesterday, Punjab went atop the league tables with 4 victories from 5 matches.
Sunrisers Hyderabad has also performed pretty well in the tournament so far and completes the top 4 with 3 wins from 4 encounters. There bowing came in for a hammering at the hands of Chris Gayle. The southpaw smashed Rashid Khan for several sixes and crafted his way to a sensational century. It was his 21st T20 century and 6th in the IPL.
Rashid Khan will look to come back stronger
The Afghan leggie Rashid Khan is not used to such treatment especially in the shortest format of the game. He was smashed for 58 runs in his 4 overs spell. The leggie was totally perplexed as everything he bowled went over the boundary ropes. Gayle was in a murderous mood and Rashid git a taste of what it takes to bowl to the Universal Boss of T20 cricket.
He will definitely look to come back stronger in today’s encounter against the Chennai Super Kings. However, before coming out in the field Rashid had an awkward moment in the flight. As we all know that Shikhar Dhawan is one of the most mischievous characters in the Indian team. It is the same when he is playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Dhawan pokes at Rashid Khan with the leggie fast asleep
He is always up to some prank with his teammates and this time it was Rashid Khan who was at the receiving end. In a video which has gone viral, Rashid is seen sleeping soundly in flight when Dhawan comes and inserts a thread into his nostrils. He suddenly wakes up and Dhawan gets away from there. Even Rashid’s co-passenger Shakib Al Hasan wasn’t aware of the deed either. The all-rounder was wearing goggles with headphone on.
Meanwhile, a Hyderabad player was seen laughing from the opposite side.
