After the summit clash, Rashid said that winning the IPL championship requires a lot of hard work and energy and the IPL 2022 title victory is his biggest achievement in cricket.

The star leg-spinner also showered praise on young opening batsman Shubman Gill, who scored 45 runs in the final and finished off the game by smashing a six.

“We adjusted quickly to the wicket, everyone took the responsibility. The middle overs were very important. So proud to be here with him (Shubman Gill),” Rashid told Star Sports.

“(He is) a very hard working guy…I thought he was the one guy against whom I would have a bit trouble but he was on my side. It’s the biggest achievement of your career – being part of the IPL-winning team. Winning here needs lots of hard work, energy. It’s the biggest achievement of my career,” he said.

Notably, Gill is the 5th highest run-getter in the Indian Premier League 2022 with 483 runs in his bag in 16 games at an average of 34.50 and a strike rate of 132.32, including 4 half-centuries.
