Sunrisers coach Tom Moody praises Rashid Khan and Yuvraj Singh


Tom Moody, the coach of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the Indian Premier League praised the Afghanistan leg spinner Rashid Khan and the Indian star left handed batsman Yuvraj Singh.

Tom Moody said, "He is a terrific find for us and he is great for the tournament for a number of reasons. It’s nice to have a young leg-spinner doing what he is doing. Rashid’s success is also great for Afghanistan and for cricket as a whole."

Moody further added, "He took 1/17 in the last game (against Rising Pune Supergiant). For any spinner to take 1/17 in a high scoring game, I don’t think the opposition has worked him out. I still think he is a major threat and he will continue to do well. I think this season we’ve probably got a well balanced squad. So I am comfortable as a coach to have a number of different combinations. I think we need to have an open mind and be flexible while selecting the combinations. Kings XI have changed their eleven more than a few times. So, its a fresh start for us, its not going to be the same eleven so that is also going to have an influence on our selection. At this point of the tournament, you would be
foolish to take any team lightly."

Tom Moody said, "Kings XI are at a point where they are desperate to secure a couple of wins and we are equally as desperate to secure wins because we want to hold our position on the top portion of the points table."

Praising Yuvraj Singh, Moody said, "Look I have been really pleased with Yuvraj. He has certainly been striking the ball well. Unfortunately, he has been suffering from a flu. Hence, he missed a couple of games. Apart from that he looks in good shape, hitting the ball as well he has done for sometime."
