Sunrisers Hyderabad romped to a second win in succession on Sunday afternoon, seeing off Gujarat Lions with ease as David Warner and Moises Henriques saw their team home to a nine-wicket win.
But that they were able to be so convincing was down to star spinner, Rashid Khan.
The Afghan leg-spinner’s stock is quickly rising and he was superb once more, not only with 3-19 but also that his three scalps were Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina and Aaron Finch.
An early front-runner in the Purple Cap race, Rashid now has more wickets than any of Sunrisers’ spinners took last season.
The 18-year-old is winning admirers as swiftly as he’s taking wickets and this was Rashid at his very best.
