SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) took to Instagram to share a video of their Afghanistan international Rashid Khan hitting a tennis ball into the stands. The interesting take from the video was that Rashid Khan aced former India captain MS Dhoni’s trademark helicopter shot to perfection. In the video, Rashid Khan, dressed in his traditional attire, sent a low full-toss straight over long-on. SRH used two emojis; a helicopter and a mind blown emoticon. The SRH fans were impressed with Rashid’s skills and asked for a promotion in the batting order.
“Rashid should be promoted to 1down batsmen,” a fan wrote.
“Winner winner 2020 IPL cup,” a user picked SRH as one of the contenders to lift the trophy this season.
Rashid Khan made his IPL debut in 2017 for the SunRisers Hyderabad and he has been one of their most consistent performers in the tournament.
Rashid has played 46 IPL matches and he has 55 wickets to his name at an impressive economy rate of 6.55.
On Friday, the IPL fans were treated with some good as the dates of the tournament were finalised.
