Afghanistan star spinner Rashid Khan has expressed, it will be a proud moment for him to bowl to Virat Kohli. Rashid has been part of the IPL for three seasons now with the Sunrisers Hyderabad and has been performing exceptionally well. The 21-year-old has 55 scalps to his name at an outstanding economy rate of 6.55. He has also been playing in other international T20 leagues performing at par.
Rashid Khan will be once again seen in the IPL playing for SRH this season. The Indian Premier League will be played in the UAE this season, where pitches are slow and dry, favouring the spinners.
Rashid Khan says he would do the best for his team
The SRH spinner is also good with the bat and has stated that he feels he can give best batting performances during the death overs.
“I think I always have the thing in my mind, whenever there are three or four overs left in the innings, I think I can give the best performance with the bat. It depends on how the situation is, when I play the Big Bash, I have been told by the coaching staff as to how I need to go after the 15 overs mark. When you get such a positive response from coach and captain, it is really good,” Rashid replied to an ANI query during a virtual press conference on Sunday.
I should not be thinking much about I can bat, I should just focus on what I can do in the entire match, I will try my best to do well for the team,” he added.

He says he loves when someone of the huge stature of Kohli plays against him and that is the best competition any bowler would want, he added. The SRH spinner stated that he will enjoy bowling against Kohli while being proud and will bowl him his best deliveries.
“I think whenever you are bowling to anyone, you are under pressure. Virat is a world-class player in all three formats, I love it when somebody like him is batting against me, it is the best competition and you want it as a bowler, I will enjoy bowling to him, it will be a proud moment bowling to him. As a bowler, I will try to bowl the best deliveries.” Rashid Khan concluded.
