There are several Man of the Match awards to be had and numerous milestones to be achieved but when arguably the greatest batsman of his era Sachin Tendulkar crowns you as the best T20 spinner, it is certainly something to rejoice for Rashid Khan.

Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar has heralded leg spinner Rashid Khan for his champion all-round effort in the match between SRH and KKR- the Qualifier 2 of IPL 2018.

The young sensation from Afghanistan blasted 34 runs off just 10 balls. With the ball as well, the leggie broke the back of the KKR batting line-up by dismissing Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa and Andre Russell. He ended as Man of the Match and what would have made the game more special was this tweet from Sachin Tendulkar.

If that was not enough, one of the best spinners – let alone leg spinners – to have played the game, Shane Warne too was proud of Rashid’s tendency to handle pressure and come out of it with flying colours.

Apart from Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar, several other experts congratulated Rashid on a stellar performance
