Equally, ace leg-spinner Rashid Khan would have had his pleasure harm after he had conceded the best variety of runs in any spell in IPL 2020 towards Mumbai Indians in SRH’s final match. Whereas his aspect received at a canter, the Afghan takes these reverses to coronary heart and can come again firing.
