Just when the fans and players think that they have a bowler figured out, there is always more to the game than meets the eye. Even former cricketers and Pundits have a way of identifying certain tricks of the trade. Such was the case with Afghanistan cricketer Rashid Khan. Aussie spinner Brad Hogg thought he had figured him out. That was not meant to be the case in a recent BBL game.
The former Australian cricketer thought that he had found a way to read Rashid Khan. The SRH star has a similar action for both the Googly and the Leg Spinner. That is the reason he was quite tough to read.
The Incident Including Rashid Khan After Hearing Out Brad Hogg’s Inputs And The Video That Went Viral
Rashid Khan has a whole bag of tricks that he opens while bowling. He has quite a few variations that keep getting him wickets. He is a bowling machine and quite lethal in the right conditions for both Afghanistan and his domestic franchises. Recently, the all-rounder was on a hattrick in a BBL game for his team, Adelaide Strikers.
Below is a video of the recent incident, along with why this hattrick (Rashid Khan’s first) was just so special that Social Media couldn’t help but talk about it-

Rashid Khan himself acknowledged the video with some humility as always. He is one of the best in the business and his reaction to the video was just simple!!

What Next For This Top Spinner And The Sunrisers Hyderabad With IPL 2021 Starting Now?
After reaching the playoffs of the IPL 2020 tournament and getting eliminated eventually, SRH will now be keen on doing better. Their first aim will be a top-four finish. Further, they will be hoping to win their second IPL title this year. It is a well-known fact that a couple of more teams will be added to the mix next year. Thus, teams like the Sunrisers Hyderabad will be keen on a title win too.
David Warner and co. will be hoping to start off their new campaign with a win over KKR. The two teams face off against each other at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. It should be a good game between the two sides and Rashid Khan could play a key role in deciding his team’s fate. He is in good form and if he does have a good IPL, SRH too should do well in the long run.
