The Indian squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has been already announced. However, management can still make changes if need be and thus has named few players as reserves. However, selectors might have to rethink or add another to the standby list and it is young fast bowler Khaleel Ahmed. DC vs SRH Eliminator Highlights IPL 2019 Match: Keemo Paul Takes Delhi Capitals to Qualifier 2, Sunrisers Hyderabad Knocked Out.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) pacer missed first few matches due to an injury but made a strong comeback in the IPL 2019. In just nine matches, Khaleel picked 19 wickets. To compare Khaleel’s feat, it took Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) pacer Mohammed Shami 14 matches to pick the same number of wickets.
In the Eliminator against Delhi Capitals, Khaleel once again showed why he is a force to reckon with. In the 11th over of Delhi’s chase, Khaleel struck twice to turn things around. Delhi Capitals were going well but Khaleel dismissed Shreyas Iyer and well-set Prithvi Shaw in space of four bowlers. And then what followed was an interesting celebration. Khaleel after removing Iyer and Shaw enacted as if he was making a phone call, perhaps to the selectors that he is around! DC vs SRH Full Scorecard.

Khaleel then finished with 2/24 from 2.5 overs. He was handed the responsibility of bowling the final over as Delhi Capitals needed just five from it. The pacer did well to take the match deep but eventually, Delhi Capitals were through. Delhi Capitals will now take on Chennai Super Kings on Friday while for Sunrisers Hyderabad it is the end of IPL 2019 and Khaleel will end an impressive season on the personal front for him.
