Rahmanullah Gurbaz recorded the highest score an Afghan player has smashed in the Indian Premier League as he played a brilliant knock of 81 runs off 39 deliveries against Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League 2023. Gurbaz opened the innings for Kolkata Knight Riders as he came to bat instead of Jason Roy and was brutal in his approach against Titans’ bowlers from the beginning. Twitter is all praise for the Afghan player and are lauding him for his explosive innings.
As the 21-year-old player overtook his 57-run mark he himself set against Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier in the tournament, fans are praising him for his brilliant inning leading KKR to put up a score of 179 for their guests to chase. Not only this, but pointing out how tables have turned as Gurbaz, who was a part of Gujarat Titans squad didn’t get any opportunity to show his talent, and today, he played brilliantly against them.
Notably, the right-handed batter began his innings by smashing Hardik Pandya for a couple of sixes in the second over. He finally went down after mistiming a full toss from Noor Ahmad, which led to Rashid Khan taking a catch in the sixteenth over. He hit five 4s and seven 6s against Titans’ helpless bowling. Notably, Kolkata Knight Riders have set a target of 180 for their guests to chase in the KKR vs GT clash at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
