It would be only fair to say that Sunrisers Hyderabad spinner Rashid Khan singlehandedly knocked KKR out of the race for the playoffs at Eden Gardens on Friday,
HIs 34 off 10 with the bat did badly hurt the KKR bowlers in the final overs. As if the damage done by him wasn't enough that he came back to haunt the KKR batters taking three key wickets with the ball.
While he was running through the KKR batting lineup, another spin great Shane Warne was seeing his heroics as a spectator and was totally taken aback by his aura. The way he bowls is very different and very exciting. Also, to see him succeed and thrive in such pressure games is a delight for any cricket fan and Warne himself is not an exception either. He is very proud to see Rashid grow leaps and bounds in the game.
In a tweet after the match against KKR, Shane Warne in a tweet praised the 19-year-old and also wished him for a superb future ahead. “As a leg-spinner I love seeing all the different types of leg spinners playing in the #IPL but watching @rashidkhan_19 bowl in these big games makes me proud as he loves this stage & pressure it also gets me excited !” Shane Warne wrote in his tweet.
Rashid also replied back to Warne's tweet and thanked him for his kind words. In reply to his tweet, Warner further wished him for the finals ahead on Sunday.
