SRH vs KKR: Rashid Khan has taken 10 wickets in 8 forms this season.BCCI / IPL
At the start of IPL 2020, a lot was expected from Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) all-rounder Andre Russell after his excellent performance in the 201 edition. In the previous session, Russell had changed the course of the game several times in singles, with his magnificent sixes and impressive performance with the ball. However, the Windies star has struggled to figure out what it is capable of. He has scored 83 runs in eight matches at a strike-rate of 140.67 and an average of 11.85. Russell was bowled out for just 12 off nine balls in a crucial league match against Mumbai Indians (MI) on Friday as there was no room left for Jaspreet Bumrah to speak to the fast and directed bouncer. With him sidelined on the back of his all-round performance, the West Indies cricketer will have to face Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. However, it will not be easy for Russell to make a difference in the match against Rashid Khan, Afghanistan’s semis in the IPL 2020.
Rashid has played a number of important dismissals, games on the SRH side, with his excellent changes in lines, length and speed.
Nicholas Puran, the key player of Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), did not stop the Afghan cricketer until then due to the tension against the Hyderabad-based franchise during the league match.
After that crucial dismissal, SRH recorded a comfortable victory.
With the playoff race in full swing, both teams are desperate for victory. The result of these two superstars coming face to face gives a good result.
