Rashid Khan shines with ball in IPL encounter
KABUL (Pajhwok): Representing Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the ongoing 10th Indian Premier League (IPL), Afghan cricketer Rashid Khan has grabbed two crucial wickets in an overnight match.
Playing in his first IPL season, Khan looked nervous when asked to bowl the sixth over of the match, as openers of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) looked dangerous in chasing a 207 runs target.
With his first delivery smashed for a four in his second bowl of the over, Khan sent Mandeep Singh back to the dressing room on the fourth bowl of his fourth over. The batsman scored 24 of 16 bowls.
The Afghan star once again made an inroad into the RCB batting line-up when he dislodged TM Head, bringing the opposition to 126 for 4.
Khan took two wickets in his four-over spell, giving away 36 run, helping SRH win the match by 35 runs.
