Sunrisers Hyderabad might have lost the game against Delhi Capitals last night but they definitely stole some limelight. Khaleel Ahmed celebrated in the weirdest way possible after dismissing Shreyas Iyer and well-set Prithvi Shaw in the same over. After dismissing the batsmen Khaleel Ahmed acted like he calling someone.
The commentators said that he is trying to tell the national selectors that he is around. Khaleel did not get his maiden World Cup call for the upcoming 50-over event but he is in the reserve bowler’s list. If commentators are to be believed, Khaleel was indicating that he is ready for the World Cup call.
This was not the first time Khaleel celebrated wildly, in the previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore he celebrated in a weird way after dismissing their skipper Virat Kohli. After the match, Kohli was seen mocking Khaleel and the duo were laughing about it.
Sunrisers Hyderabad lost the eliminator to Delhi Capitals by 2 wickets and their chance to win the IPL. Khaleel was given the ball to defend five runs in the last over which he was able to do till extent but Keemo Paul finished the game by hitting a boundary.
Khaleel finished his Indian Premier League 2019 season with 19 wickets from 15 matches. He is also among the contenders for the emerging player of the season award.
