Muttiah Muralitharan, the Sunrisers Hyderabad spin bowling coach, was furious after his team’s loss to Gujarat Titans (GT) in a thrilling match at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Gujarat Titans appear to have developed a habit of squeezing wins out of nowhere, particularly in the final over of a game. The pattern of nail-biting finishes continued for Hardik Pandya’s side as Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan pulled the team over the line by hitting 25 runs off Marco Jansen’s final over of the chase while chasing a tough target of 196 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
Muttiah Muralitharan Furious As Rashid Khan Smashed 3 Sixes Off Marco Jansen
Marco Jansen, a left-arm fast bowler from South Africa, is regarded as dependable, but he failed to defend 22 runs in the last over for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) against Gujarat Titans (GT), and his team was defeated in a dramatic match.
GT needed 22 runs in the final over. Rahul Tewatia, the GT all-rounder, hit the opening ball of Marco Jansen for a six. On the next ball, he rotated the strike. The third ball was smashed for a six by Rashid Khan, while the fourth was missed. GT needed nine runs on the final two balls. Khan managed to strike a six off Jansen’s low full toss outside off stump. The delivery bowled by Jansen did not impress Muralitharan.
In the dugout, the former Sri Lankan leg-spinner could be seen screaming his frustration. The incident’s footage quickly went popular on social media. Gujarat Titans won the game when Khan hit two back-to-back sixes off the last two balls of the 20th over.
“Why the f**k is he bowling full?” shouted Muralidharan, fully losing the plot. The loss ended SRH’s five-match winning streak and propelled GT to the top of the points table with seven victories in eight games.
