Abu Dhabi: In this season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) has defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) for their first win in the tournament. Behind this victory, leg-spinner Rashid Khan’s superb bowling has played an important role and for this performance he was given the man of the match award. Rashid Khan has dedicated this award to his late parents.
The Sunrisers scored 162 runs for four wickets while batting first. In response, the Delhi team fell behind by 15 runs. Rashid weaved a web of spin and took three wickets for 14 runs in four overs.
After receiving the Man of the Match award, he said, ‘The last year and a half has been very difficult for me. First I lost my father and three to four months ago to my mother. She was my biggest fan. This award was given to both of them. Whenever I would get an award, she would talk to me all night.
He said, ‘I never take the pressure that I have to perform well. I play calm and keep my basics in good shape. The captain has always trusted me and has given me the opportunity to bowl according to my own.
Sunrisers captain David Warner said that his team won in the running between the wickets.
He said, ‘If Mitchell Marsh got injured, it was necessary to make up his deficiency in bowling. Abhishek bowled well and we have worked hard on bowling the death overs. Today everyone did well ‘.
Warner, who had a half-century partnership with Johnny Bairstow, said, “We also had a good run between the wickets. When fours could not hit sixes, then we were running and taking runs like this.
