After their spirited performance on the field, the SRH players decided to have some fun behind the scenes. At the team hotel, the SRH players were in a very joyful mood. David Warner's young daughter was seen dancing before her superstar daddy came and held the little kid in his arms along with her elder sister. Then the players and the team staff entered the hotel. However, there was a big surprise which was in store for someone very special.  Simon Helmot who is the assistant coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad then appreciated their opening batsmen David Warner and Jonny Bairstow for registering their fourth 100 run opening stand in the ongoing season. The 47-year-old then went on to say that the duo will not be getting the cake instead, it will be given to the 'Man of the Match' and well-deserving recipient Khaleel Ahmed.

Khaleel Ahmed then came forward to cut the cake but he became suspicious of David Warner who was standing just behind him. Soon Rashid Khan came and stood ahead of him, Warner took some cream from the cake and offered it to Khaleel but suddenly, Rashid made his intentions clear by applying the cake on Khaleel's face. He was joined by his Afghanistan team-mate Mohammad Nabi before a few others joined them as well. Khaleel who had cake all over his face was seen counting the number of people who were involved in this prank and signalled to them that he would take his revenge as the 21-year-old medium pacer wiped his face.

The video of this hilarious celebration was shared on Twitter.

The youngster then took to Twitter and said that he got to know that Rashid Khan was behind this prank. He hoped that Rashid would win a 'Man of the Match' award one day so that he can get his revenge. Watch this video here.

Khaleel Ahmed played a vital role in SRH's victory over KKR. He picked up the wickets of Kolkata's top three batsmen Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine and Shubman Gill. He finished his bowling spell with figures of 3/33 in his four overs at an economy of 8.25.

It was celebration time for the 'Orange Army' as they got the better of two-time IPL winners Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets with five overs to spare at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday. By the virtue of this comprehensive win, Sunrisers Hyderabad have made their way into the top four which has also kept their playoff hopes alive. They have now at the fourth spot after having registered five wins from their nine games with 10 points.
