IPL 2019: Rashid Khan Tries to Unnerve Shane Watson, Turns into Viral Memes
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) banked on their veteran batsman Shane Watson to return to winning ways beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by six wickets at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Watson scored 96 runs off just 53 balls to take his side almost over the ropes before Bhuvneshwar Kumar got him. Kedar Jadhav stood tall from one end to ensure that Chennai goes home safely. Meanwhile, an intense battle between Watson and Rashid Khan was on the cards for the viewers which stole the show with Watson finishing on the winning side.
Batting first, a brilliant knock from Manish Pandey and another half-century from David Warner ensured Hyderabad post 175 runs on the board. Hyderabad’s star opener Jonny Bairstow failed to get going in his last match in the IPL, but Warner ensured he keeps the scoreboard ticking. He partnered Manish Pandey to add 115 runs from the second wicket to set a good platform. But the Chennai Super Kings bowlers made an excellent comeback to restrict them for 175 despite having wickets in hand.
In reply, Shane Watson was all over the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers taking them to bonkers. He targeted top-rank T20I bowler Rashid Khan taking him for 44 runs from his full quota. Sandeep Sharma also couldn’t escape his wrath, and the veteran all-rounder smacked everything that came his way. Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu provided excellent support rotating the strike while Watson was as his task. Although Shane Watson departed in the 18th over after a well-made 96, Kedar Jadhav ensured they go home safely.
Meanwhile, during Chennai innings, the spectators were up for an intense battle between Shane Watson and Rashid Khan. Rashid tried to intimidate the former Australian but Watson used all his experience to overhaul the young spinners and take him all over the part. However, an image of Watson and Rashid from the game turned into some viral memes which set the social media sites on fire.
