Rashid Khan: Titans scripted a fantabulous six-wicket win over SRH with Rashid hitting sixes off the last three balls of the match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday. However, the SRH fans are more disappointed because it is Rashid Khan who snatched the victory away from the hands of Sun Risers Hyderabad. Rashid was playing for SRH until the last tournament.
Despite Umran’s five-wicket haul, the superb duo of Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan bagged away the victory from the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad. The fans are not happy with the fact that their very own Rashid became the villain in the match, taking the victory away from the hands of SRH.
With a target of 196-run, GT had a terrific start by the opening duo of Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill. They scored a 69-run partnership before the primary wicket was lost. However, as soon as SRH introduced their pacer, Umran Malik, into the field, GT’s batting started to scatter like a home of playing cards and it lost five wickets within less span of overs.
But, surprisingly, Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan’s duo changed the whole game. They overshadowed Umran’s efforts with their amazing batting and finally got success to the GT Team with their stunning work in the last over.
If not for Rashid Khan, it could have been an easy win for SRH. Rashid is a very good all-rounder and he has got the chance to prove the same multiple times in this tournament. So, letting go off Rashid is a big mistake by SRH is what a few think but we have to see if this decision can be turning costly for the team in the coming matches.
