Gujarat Titans star spinner Rashid Khan said that he isn’t “happy” with his wickets tally in the ongoing Indian Premier League but he is happy that he plays “little” roles, which helps his team to win as well. However, Rashid Khan has had a poor season so far. In six matches, Rashid Khan has six scalps to his name at an economy of 7.96 and an average of 31.83 as well. Rashid Khan also opened up about his struggle in the ongoing season and vowed to take more wickets as well.

“In the first three games, I struggled a bit coming after the surgery; it wasn’t easy to get back to my own rhythm. I am so happy in the last two to three games, I have played how my body allowed me to enjoy my bowling and I am quite happy with that. Wicket wise, I am not happy with that but that is what T20 cricket is all about. Sometimes you need to play a little role, which helps the team to win the game and I am trying my best to play that little role. In any part where I can change the momentum of the game, I try my best. I will do my best to take more wickets in the last eight games,” Rashid Khan told ANI.

However, GT made it to two consecutive finals of the IPL under Hardik Pandya and even won the title in their debut season as well. After Hardik returned to his former franchise, the Mumbai Indians, Shubman Gill took over the reins. Rashid Khan also applauded Shubman Gill’s performance as a captain and his commitment to deliver his best as well.

“He has been great since Day 1. It is so good to see him; he is leading from the front. The way he has been delivering with the bat even though he has captaincy on his shoulders. He is someone who tries to do his best as well, doesn’t matter what the condition or situation is. He is delivering the best for the team and I think he has been delivering the best in captaincy as well. He is helping the guys in the right way to perform, which is so pleasing to see,” Rashid added.

“It has been great so far as a team. We have done so well so far. Yeah, we lost three games. If you look at those games, we lost them, like mostly we were there. Overall, we have played amazing cricket,” Rashid Khan concluded.

Gujarat Titans will play againstr the Delhi Capitals in their next game on Wednesday at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
