Rashid Khan turned out to be the Man of the Match for Surisers Hyderabad on Friday as he single-handedly turned the game on its head. First, he played a 34 run cameo off just 10 balls which triggered the SRH total to 174.
Then he came back with the ball to hurt the KKR chase as he dismissed Robin Uthappa and Andre Russell two key KKR batsmen who could have took their team to the finals. To top it all, Rashid was a livewire on the field as he produced a runout, out of nowhere to send Nitish Rana packing. Then he took the crucial catch of Shivam Mavi in the final over of the KKR innings to shut down any hopes of them making the finals on Sunday.
It thus can be very well said that the entire match yesterday revolved around Rashid Khan's performance as he produced his best performance so far on the big night to take Sunrisers to their second IPL final.
David Warner, who is missing the season for SRH this season, has in an Instagram post showered praises on his breathtaking show with both bat and ball. One expects going into the finals, the onus will be again on Rashid Khan to put up a magical performance for the Sunrisers on Sunday night on Mumbai. David Warner hopes the same.
Here is what Warner said on Rashid on his Instagram post.
