While Sunrisers lost the match and were knocked out of the IPL 2019, it was a good outing on the personal front for Rashid and relatively decent for Nabi.

Rashid’s dismissed Colin Munro and Axar Patel in over to help Sunrisers make a comeback in the contest. Nabi, on the other hand, went wicketless in his four overs and gave away 29 runs. However, with the bat, the former Afghanistan skipper scored valuable 20 off just 13 balls. He smashed three fours and a six during his cameo. Meanwhile, Dhawan will feature in the IPL 2019 Qualifier 2 against Chennai Super Kings. The winner will proceed to finals and face Mumbai Indians.
