Bangalore became the first team to pick all 10 scalps of the opposition in IPL 2018. Though Kings XI lost the match, the young Afghan spinner Mujeeb ur Rehman is receiving accolades from all the critics and experts.
Particularly, that delivery he dismissed skipper Virat Kohli was the talk of the town in the social media for the past 24 hours.
It is to be noted that Mujeeb is the only player from the 21st century to represent in the cash-rich league and his skipper Ashwin has no objection in picking him ahead of several stalwarts in the team.
IPL 2018 has been a gem of a tournament so far with nail-biting thrillers and last over finishes. Particularly, this edition has been a platform for youngsters like Mujeeb and Mayank Marchand to get better exposure to International cricket and to make a statement for the oppositions.
Kings XI Punjab will play their next match against Chennai Super Kings at Mohali today at 8 pm.
