Ashwin, Rahane, Kaif share insights on use of masks, maintaining hygiene ahead of IPL
The ongoing Caribbean Premier League 2020 (CPL 2020) season recently concluded its round-robin stage. On Saturday, September 5, the Barbados Tridents clashed against the Jamaica Tallawahs in the 28th match of the tournament. During the course of the match, cricketers Rashid Khan and Andre Russell got involved in a friendly banter after the latter enjoyed a lucky escape while batting at the crease.
In the match, the Jamaica Tallawahs batted first and posted 161-4 on the back of some power hitting by Andre Russell. The dynamic all-rounder blasted 54 from just 28 balls with four fours and five sixes. However, during his stay at the crease, Andre Russell survived a wrong’un from Barbados Tridents’ Rashid Khan. The incident occurred in the 17th over where Khan managed to clip the off-stump but the bails remained unfazed.
Later, Andre Russell imitated Rashid Khan’s wicket-taking celebration only to evoke laughter from the seasoned Afghanistan spinner. Khan laughingly tried to kick the West Indian all-rounder and the duo fist-bumped each other afterwards. Interestingly, it was Rashid Khan himself who dismissed Andre Russell a while later. Meanwhile, Russell’s 28-ball 54 went in vain as the Barbados Tridents ended up overhauling Jamaica Tallawahs’ 161-4 with eight balls to spare.
Both cricketers are now slated to represent their respective franchises in the upcoming Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL 2020) season. Rashid Khan, who made his IPL debut in 2017 through the SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), is now all set to reprise his role in the much-awaited season. On the other hand, Andre Russell is expected to take field for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
Both Rashid Khan and Andre Russell were among the retained cricketers of SRH and KKR respectively during the IPL 2020 trading and transfer window. Much like their recent clash in the CPL 2020, the two players are likely to collide when KKR takes on the SRH on September 26. The IPL 2020 season is scheduled to launch on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
