IPL 2017: Twitter Reacts To Mohammad Nabi’s IPL Debut And SRH’s Innings Against KXIP

It was a watershed moment for Afghanistan cricket when Mohammad Nabi was handed his Indian Premier League debut cap by Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday during the match against Kings XI Punjab.

Nabi’s compatriot Rashid Khan had already made his debut during the first match of the tournament and it was the first instance when two Afghanistan players played together in the lucrative league.

Meanwhile, an unbeaten 70-run knock from David Warner propelled the defending champions to 159 for six in the allotted 20 overs. The defending champions lost wickets at regular intervals which never gave their innings the impetus but Warner held from one end to guide his team to a respectable total.

Shikhar Dhawan and Moises Henriques managed 15 and nine respectively while Yuvraj Singh failed even to open his account, as the hosts were reduced to 50 for three in the tenth over. A 60-run stand between Warner and Naman Ojha then steadied the ship before the latter was dismissed by KC Cariappa.

Nabi had a forgettable debut, as he could manage only two runs from 3 deliveries but Rashid made the most of the batting opportunity by hitting the last delivery of the innings for a six.

Here is how Twitter reacted to Nabi’s debut and SRH’s innings:
