Rashid Khan is currently one of the best spinners in limited overs format. The Afghan plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. He recently congratulated CSK’s Suresh Raina for achieving an incredible milestone.
CSK started their title defense in IPL 2019 by convincingly winning by 7 wickets against RCB. Dhoni elected to field first on a sluggish Chepauk track which proved too good for RCB batsmen.
Even with players like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in the team, RCB were bowled out for 70. Only Parthiv Patel (29) managed to register a double-digit score. CSK’s decision to play with three spinners paid off. The trio of Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja picked up 8 wickets.
Bhajji picked 3 for 20, Tahir got 3 for 9 while Jaddu got 2 for 15. CSK batsmen also struggled as in-form Shane Watson got out without scoring. However they managed to cross the line in the 18th over with 7 wickets in hand.
