The day when Mustafizur Rahman had an amazing outing with the ball for Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Shakib Al Hasan had even a better day with the ball against his former team Kolkata Knight Riders.
After playing 7 years for KKR, Shakib faced his former team for the first time in this year’s IPL and provided an exceptional performance with the ball.
After Kane Williamson put Knight Riders to bat first, they lost Robin Uthappa early and none of the batsman except Chris Lynn could make a mark. And, it was none other than Shakib who got the crucial wicket of Lynn courtesy of a blinder of a catch from the bowler himself.
Shakib was jointly the best bowler of Sunrisers Hyderabad with Billy Stanlake. They both share the same bowling figures which is 2/21.
The number all-rounder finished with an economy of 5.25 and got the wickets of the two most dangerous batsman in the KKR side – Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn.
Due to a highly disciplined bowling by the Sunrisers Hyderabad, the Knight Riders only managed to score 138 runs in their 20 overs with the loss of 8 wickets.
