The 21-year-old star Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has recently introduced “Camel Bat” in the Big Bash League (BBL) 2019/20. After watching that special bat, his Indian Premier League (IPL) team, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) has reacted.
On last Sunday (29th December), Rashid Khan’s Adelaide Strikers played against Melbourne Renegades at Melbourne (Docklands) in the BBL 2019/20. After winning the toss, Adelaide Strikers scored 155/6 (20 overs) in the first innings. Later, Melbourne Renegades were restricted to 137/8 (20 overs), and Adelaide Strikers won that match by 18 runs. Rashid Khan won the Player of the Match award for his all-round performances in that game.
While the leg-spinner bagged two wickets along with the cheapest bowling performance (4-0-15-2), the right-handed middle-order batsman Rashid Khan scored 25 runs off 16 balls (2 fours and 2 sixes). During that innings, Rashid brought a special bat which is popularly known as “Camel Bat”. Unlike the regular cricket bats, it has a curve on the backside, which is very similar to camel curve.
After watching that special bat, Rashid Khan’s IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad has also shown their excitement on this bat. On Twitter, SRH has requested the leg-spinner to carry that bat for the next IPL season (IPL 2020).
SRH posted, “Carry it along for IPL 2020, @rashidkhan_19! 😎”
