Video: Skipper Willamson forgets Shakib’s name during toss

In the 4th match of 2018’s Indian Premier League, Sunrisers Hyderabad are taking on Rajasthan Royals at home.

Due to the involvement in the ball tampering scandal, Australian opener David Warner and captain Steve Smith has not been given permission to play this year’s IPL and they were named as the captain of both the respective teams.

In their place, Kane Willamson is leading Sunrisers Hyderabad while Ajinkya Rahane is lead the Royals and during toss, a funny incident took place.

Williamson elected to field first after winning the toss and when the skipper was asked who are the four foreign players that are playing tonight, Willamson forgot the 4th name and it was Shakib Al Hasan.

The four foreign players in the Sunrisers starting XI are Kane Willamson himself, Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake and Shakib Al Hasan. In the end, the opposition captain helped Willamson to remember him the last name.

In the first innings, Sunrisers Hyderabad restricted Rajasthan to 125 runs and Shakib had an amazing outing with the ball as he picked up 2 wickets and only conceded 23 runs in his 4 overs.
