ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsOne of the most consistent teams in the tournament this season, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) showcased their rampant form when they became the first franchise to qualify for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 playoffs with 14 league games still left to play. Thus, there was no surprise when they topped the points table with nine wins in 14 matches in the league stage. The three consecutive losses in their last three league games did raise a few eyebrows, but SRH were happy their losing streak had no effect on their title dreams. What actually got their camp concerned and fans worried, was a narrow two-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Qualifier 1 - a game they could've won but eventually lost because they couldn't hold their nerve. As Chennai reached the IPL final for a record seventh time, Hyderabad, for probably the first time this season, looked vulnerable. Even though their top-two finish in the standings had assured them another shot at securing their berth for the summit clash, knowing a loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Qualifier 2 would bring a sad end to what has been a brilliant campaign so far, would've been lingering in their minds. Suddenly, their losing streak (extending to 4 games after their loss in Qualifier 1) that SRH fans didn't really care about earlier, now made them look weak against Kolkata's four-game winning run in the final stages of the IPL. BCCI It's needless to say that if Hyderabad wanted to have another crack at Chennai and IPL glory, they would need someone to do certain special things in order to secure a win against Kolkata in the second Qualifier. While SRH eventually saw someone special pulling off something extra special in the tournament's virtual semi-final, it was neither their pragmatic captain Kane Williamson, nor hard-hitting opener Shikhar Dhawan. Rashid Khan is turning out to be the Most Valuable Player in T20 format....across the world. Few will come close.... #IPL #KKRvSRH — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) May 25, 2018 The man who single-handedly propelled Hyderabad to only their second IPL final was Rashid 'ALL-ROUNDER' Khan. The 19-year-old Afghan cricketer sizzled in all facets of the game. He hammered 10-ball 34* with the willow, registered impressive figures of 3-19 with the ball and also made a huge impact in the field by taking two catches and collaborating to effect a run-out. After a 56-run opening stand between Shikhar Dhawan (34) and Wriddhiman Saha (35), Hyderabad were dealt with a double blow in the eighth over when Kuldeep Yadav dismissed the former and then sent SRH captain Kane Williamson (3) back in the hut. Three overs later, Saha fell prey to Piyush Chawla as Kolkata tightened the noose on Hyderabad. BCCI With just 113/3 in 15 overs, SRH needed some sort of acceleration but Shakib Al Hasan (28) got run-out and Deepak Hooda (19) was undone by Narine in the consecutive overs. The onus was now on the hard-hitting duo of Yusuf Pathan (3) and Carlos Brathwaite (8), but to no avail. While Brathwaite was run-out in the 18th over, Pathan was dismissed by Shivam Mavi in the 19th. Given the fact that their premier batsmen were all dismissed with just 11 deliveries left in the innings, the Hyderabad fans weren't wrong in wondering if their side could potentially post a competitive total from that stage. While many must've thought otherwise, young Rashid had other plans. The right-hander had already opened his account with a boundary and despite Pathan's dismissal on the first delivery, he clobbered Shivam Mavi for two big sixes in the 19th over. The final over was arguably the one that changed the scenario for SRH. After Bhuvneshwar Kumar scored a boundary and a single on the first two balls, Rashid smashed a four and six before taking a couple and then finishing with a six again. BCCI The last over yielded 24 runs for Hyderabad as Rashid remained unbeaten on 34 runs that came off in just 10 deliveries. The Afghanistan star smashed two fours and four sixes while scoring at a strike rate of 340. Despite being on the backfoot for better part of their innings, Hyderabad - on the back of Rashid's batting prowess - managed to comeback in the contest after posting a competitive total of 174 runs. For a cricketer who has established himself as one of the highly sought after spinners in the cricket world, Rashid's knock didn't just surprise the SRH fans, but it also shocked Kolkata. And, after a cracker of an innings, a high-on-confidence Rashid went on to emulate his success in the field. BCCI Introduced into the attack in the sixth over with KKR going strong at 67/1, Rashid bowled a tight line and varied his length to ensure he conceded just three runs in his first over. Eight deliveries later, Rashid made an impact. But it wasn't his bowling, Rashid had combined with Wriddhiman Saha to effect the run-out of Nitish Rana (22). Rashid claimed his first wicket of the night in his second over when he rattled the stumps of Robin Uthappa (2) who was looking to deploy the reverse sweep against Hyderabad's best bowler. His third over saw him claim another scalp, only this time the victim turning out to be dangerous Chris Lynn (48) who was threatening to take the game away from SRH. BCCI If Lynn's dismissal derailed Kolkata's run-chase, Andre Russell's dismissal, orchestrated by Rashid in his final over, virtually pushed the hosts out of the game. Looking to cut hard, Russell was foxed by Rashid's deceiving googly before sending the ball straight into the hands of Dhawan who rarely drops those. Making the game his own, Rashid's blistering batting display was followed by his breath-taking bowling. He finished his spell of four overs with three scalps to his name that came at an expense of just 19 runs. But, the Hyderabad spinner wasn't done yet. As it turned out, Rashid continued to contribute towards his team's win by taking two catches in the final over of Kolkata's innings. A 10-ball 34, figures of 3-19, a crucial run-out and two catches under pressure; not many can recall such an impressive all-round performance in the history of IPL. It's undoubtedly one of those dream outings that will not only be hard to forget, but also hard to match.
I want you to know one thing. You know how this is: if I look at the crystal moon, at the red branch of the slow autumn at my window, if I touch near the fire the impalpable ash or the wrinkled body of the log, everything carries me to you, as if everything that exists, aromas, light, metals, were little boats that sail toward those isles of yours that wait for me. Well, now, if little by little you stop loving me I shall stop loving you little by little. If suddenly you forget me do not look for me, for I shall already have forgotten you. If you think it long and mad, the wind of banners that passes through my life, and you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots, remember that on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms and my roots will set off to seek another land. But if each day, each hour, you feel that you are destined for me with implacable sweetness, if each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me, ah my love, ah my own, in me all that fire is repeated, in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten, my love feeds on your love, beloved, and as long as you live it will be in your arms without leaving mine. ---- If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda
Heart, we will forget him, You and I, tonight! You must forget the warmth he gave, I will forget the light. When you have done pray tell me, Then I, my thoughts, will dim. Haste! 'lest while you're lagging I may remember him! ---- Emily Dickinson
