Afghanistan’s star spin bowler Rashid Khan (Rashid Khan) may be playing cricket in the Indian Premier League 2021 (IPL), but he is also fasting in the Pak month of Ramadan. Rashid plays for the IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The 14th season of IPL is being organized from April 9 to May 30 in six cities of India. Due to the Coronavirus, all teams and players are in the bio bubble and are completely following the Kovid protocols. Apart from Rashid Khan in Sunrisers Hyderabad, Khalil Ahmed Mohammad Nabi and Mujib ur Rehman are also Muslim players who have fasted.
However, after Sunrisers Hyderabad’s poor start to the 14th season of IPL, the team captain David Warner and Kane Williamson are fully with their team. In this episode, Warner and Williamson also joined Rakhid Khan and other players in Iftari and also kept Roza. A video of Rashid Khan’s Ramdan Iftari has also been shared with his official Instagram account.
Sharing this video, Rashid Khan wrote- “Today’s Iftari with these two legends. Both of them also kept a fast with us today. ”In this video, Rashid Khan is seen asking David Warner how his day of fasting has been.
In response to this, the Australian opener says that good, but I am very thirsty and also very hungry. My mouth is also very dry. Williamson said very well, thank you. In this tournament, players from different countries come together. The IPL has made the players try to learn and enhance different cultures.
Kane Williamson also learned some Urdu from Khalil Ahmed during IPL 2020. The start of Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2021 could not be special. The team has played three matches so far and with the defeat in all three matches, the team is at the last place in the points table. Hyderabad lost their first match to Kolkata Knight Riders.
After this, the team had to face defeat at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. The next match of Sunrisers Hyderabad is to be played with Punjab Kings on Wednesday, April 21 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
