Rashid Khan run-out: The Afghani spinner proved his mettle on the field after dismissing Royal Challengers Bangalore’s all-rounder.
During the eliminator match of the ongoing 13th seaosn of the Indian Premier League between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Abu Dhabi, Royal Challengers Bangalore all-rounder Moeen Ali (0) registered a rare case of getting run-out on a free-hit.
It all happened on the fourth delivery of the 11th over when Ali’s attempt of sneaking a single off a free-hit found him in trouble. Having hit a fuller delivery from Sunrisers Hyderabad spinner Shahbaz Nadeem straight to Rashid Khan at extra cover, Ali quickly called for a single.
What happened further was Rashid collecting the ball cleanly and successfully nailing a direct-hit at the non-striker’s end where Ali was nowhere to be found in the picture. While batsmen prefer to receive a free-hit as their first delivery, Ali couldn’t capitialize on the same in any manner.
While Rashid didn’t pick a wicket off his own bowling, him giving away only 22 runs in addition to running out Ali calls for a praiseworthy performance on the field.
In his four overs, Nadeem conceded 30 runs and dismissed Royal Challengers batsman Aaron Finch (32) to break a potentially dangerous partnership between Finch and AB de Villiers.
Rashid Khan run-out vs SRH
WATCH – That remarkable @rashidkhan_19 run-out
If he is not taking wickets, he sure is running batsmen out. Sample that for a fielding brilliance. Collected the ball, throws it, direct hit. OUT.
