Rashid Khan blazed three sixes off the final four deliveries and propelled Gujarat Lions to a five-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League.

Rashid Khan’s display with the willow won the game for Gujarat Titans from an impossible position in IPL 2022. The right-handed batter scored an unbeaten 31 off 11 balls, laced with four sixes against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022. Rahul Tewatia was the other batter who smashed 40 not-out off 21 balls, including 4 fours and 2 sixes.

Rashid credited captain Hardik Pandya and head coach Ashish Nehra for the franchise’s success in the 15th season. The win by 5 wickets took them to the top of the table with 14 points from 8 games.

“Happy with my contribution. Our skipper Hardik Pandya has been spot on and doesn’t put pressure on the players. Ashish bhai has created a good environment and has defined every player’s role. We know what we have to do in a match, and we all are contributing,” said Rashid.

Umran Malik took five wickets; his maiden fifer to keep the Kane Williamson-led team in the game, but the onslaught by Rashid and Rahul took the game away from the Orange Army. Earlier, SRH scored 195/6 in 20 overs.
