Sports. games. Home / Cricket / IPL 2020: Emotional Rashid Khan dedicates Man of the Match to his mother, says ‘mom was my biggest fan’

Rashid Khan is a tough character. He doesn’t like to give an inch to the opposition. But even strong personalities like him go through hard times. 2020 has been tough on everyone but perhaps a bit more to Rashid. He lost his mother earlier this year, someone who was very close to him and who was his biggest fan. The Afghanistan leg-spinner gave an emotional tribute to his mother after his performance against the Delhi Capitals on Tuesday. Rashid’s triple strike made all the difference, allowing Sunrisers to defend 162 for their first win of IPL 2020, on Tuesday. Rashid dedicated his Man of the Match performance to his mother.IPL 2020, RR vs KKR Live Score “It has been a tough one and a half year for me, first my dad expired and then my mom (in June this year). And it took a bit of time for me to come back.

Rashid said he did not feel the pressure going into the field and reaped the benefits of bowling quicker than usual on a slow surface. “I bowled quicker today, when I started and bowled my first ball, I realized it. You need two three balls to know what the right pace is. In these conditions you need to bowl back of a length to the batsmen. “Warner (captain) always backs me and tells me that you know what’s best for the team. Only when things aren’t going my way I go and ask the captain what to do.” Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer said his team did not read the conditions well in their first game. “They outplayed us in all three departments and credit to them for that. 162 was a par score on this wicket. It was surprising and in the second innings, it (pitch) was two-paced. When I went in, the ball wasn’t coming onto the bat. We thought dew would come on but we can’t give any reasons at this moment,” he said. “We didn’t execute the way we wanted to. Lot of learnings from this wicket and conditions. Ricky went in (during the time-out) and we needed one batsman to take a chance as the required rate was pretty high. (With PTI inputs)
