34 runs off just 10 balls, three wickets for only 19 runs, two catches, and one run-out, can you ask for more from a Twenty20 player? This was Rashid Khan’s all-round show which helped Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to book their final place against Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018.

Firstly, Rashid lifted Sunrisers total to a competitive 174. The Orange Army was struggling to get to 150. However, with the help of late blitz from the Afghanistan player, they ended up with a par score.

Secondly, he was a live wire on the field, effecting a run-out and taking two catches in his bucket.

Rashid’s tour de force was on display in the Qualifier second at Eden Gardens:

Last but not the least, he did what he does best with the ball. Rashid obliterated the Kolkata’s middle order as he took three wickets.

Furthermore, Rashid caught big fishes like Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa and Andre Russell in his spin web.

The Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid once again proved why he is the best in the business. He once again provided a testament that why he is the number one spinner in the shortest format of the game.

Sensational performance from Afghanistan Talisman:

Moreover, the 19-year old sensation Rashid has scalped 21 wickets in the 16 matches he has played in this ongoing season. Not only Rashid has taken these wickets but also he has not let the batsmen off the hook.

Consequently, Afghan star has conceded runs at an economy of 6.78 which is the best for any bowler who has played more than seven matches.

In addition, Rashid has continued to breathe down the batsmen neck. Thus, Sunrisers linchpin is successful in bamboozling the best players in the best T20 league in the world.

Cricket is my first love. I want to be a wordsmith. I want to weave magic with my words.
