The 2018 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has come to end with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) winning the coveted title for the third time after thrashing Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the final of the IPL 2018 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 27 May (Sunday).
The IPL 2018 witnessed a lot of entertaining display from AB de Villiers’ “Superman” fielding effort to stunning batting display from the likes of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, KL Rahul and Shane Watson to outstanding bowling from the likes of Siddharth Kaul, Rashid Khan, Mayank Markande, Andrew Tye and many more.
Rashid Khan, Afghanistan’s young leg-spin sensation, grabbed a lot of attention from cricket pundits to greats of the game throughout the IPL 2018 for his stunning display with the ball, and he’s tournament of the year for Indian cricket commentator and journalist Harsha Bhogle.
The 19-year-old leg-spinner has finished the IPL 2018 with 21 wickets in 17 matches for Hyderabad and is second highest wicket-taker in the T20 tournament.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad bowlers including Rashid drastically failed to stop the CSK batters especially Shane Watson from hitting the ball, eventually losing the IPL title to MS Dhoni and his team.
Following the IPL 2018 final in Mumbai, Bhogle went on social media to reveal his best player of the tournament on 28 May (Monday).
His post reads, “Good night. #IPL2018 was wonderful. My player of the tournament was @rashidkhan_19.”
