In a crucial clash of IPL 2023 Qualifier 2 between the Mumbai Indians (MI) and Gujarat Titans, Rashid Khan delivered a crucial blow by dismissing Mumbai’s young batsman Tilak Varma, resulting in the loss of their third wicket. It was a significant breakthrough for the opposing team as they aimed to restrict MI’s scoring and gain the upper hand in the match.
The dismissal came as Rashid Khan, the star leg-spinner, displayed his exceptional skills and guile. Delivering a well-disguised leg-break, he deceived Tilak Varma, who had been looking in terrific touch until that point. Varma attempted a forceful sweep shot but failed to connect with the ball, leaving his stumps vulnerable.
The leg-break spun past the inside edge of Varma’s bat and crashed into the timber, leaving the youngster visibly disappointed. Varma’s promising innings, which included five boundaries and three towering sixes, came to an abrupt end, giving credit to Rashid Khan’s bowling prowess.
