Talented all-rounder Rashid Khan stole all the limelight in yesterday’s match against CSK in the ongoing IPL 2023. Ruturaj Gaikwad yet again played a stupendous knock to help CSK put on a respectable total. Every CSK batsman came out with the intent to hit and score big.
Over the last 2 years, Ruturaj has defined and led the CSK’s batting lineup from the front. Hardik and co. constantly halted the CSK’s batting lineup with Ruturaj sticking to the other end. Rashid Khan, Md Shami and Alzarri Joseph took 2 wickets each to help restrict CSK to 178.
“Rashid Khan’s speciality is that he doesn’t take any pressure on himself while batting. His mindset is always to score those crucial boundaries and help his team win. Had he got dismissed, Gujarat could have lost the game because while chasing 15-16 in the final over, the pressure is always on the batting side,” said Virender Sehwag.
He won Man of the Match for his outstanding performance in both innings.
Rashid Khan has the best economy in the opening encounter of GT vs CSK
Rashid Khan was the most economical bowler for Gujarat Titans. Rashid is undoubtedly the best weapon one can have in the team. He not only took wickets but halted CSKs flow of runs throughout the innings. Rashid Khan gave only 26 runs with an economy of just 6.5.
In the second innings when Gujarat needed 23 off 2 overs, Rashid Khan hit Deepak Chahar for a six and four, taking the pressure off Tewatia in the penultimate over. Sehwag praised Rashid Khan for his spectacular performance with bat and ball.
Rashid khan is entertaining to watch every time he comes to bat, with his innovative shots all around the ground. The Gun player indeed in T20I will not settle for anything less than a Trophy or a purple cap. He deserves every bit of it.
