IPL 2018: Rashid Khan gives Ace Performance against KKR, Fans seek Indian Citizenship for the Spinner


Rashid Khan was on fire with a stupendous all-round performance in Qualifier 2 against KKR. The Afghani spinner’s ace game not only led SRH into the finals but also earned him the Man of the Match award. Not only he snatched 3 wickets by giving away just 19 runs but he also took 2 catches and effected a runout.

Receiving the award, Rashid dedicated it to the people in Afghanistan who had lost their lives in a bomb blast during a cricket game, earlier this month. The spinner is just 19 and has already garnered so much of love from fans. He is currently the No.1 T20 bowler in the ICC ranking.

Now that Sunrisers Hyderabad has reached the finals, everyone is talking about Rashid Khan’s performance.

In fact, fans loved his game so much that many of them have even started seeking Indian citizenship for the Afghani spinner.

The matter escalated so quickly that even Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj and Afghani President Ashraf Ghani couldn’t refrain from voicing their opinion.

Talking about the final, now Sunrisers Hyderabad will have to knock out Chennai Super Kings to claim the IPL trophy on 27th May. Interestingly, both CSK and SRH have been the top 2 teams of this tournament and it’s really tough to say which one would be the winner. Needless to say, everyone would be looking forward to Rashid’s performance, especially after his stupendous all-round game against KKR.
