Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Haris Rauf’s pulsating performances in the Big Bash League (BBL) have taken the cricket world by storm. His sizzling spells of bowling in Australia’s premier T20 competition have seen him wreak havoc on oppositions as his hostile pace has been hard to negotiate.
Having been plucked out of Tasmanian grade cricket to replace the injured Dale Steyn for a couple of games and later play instead of the unwell Sandeep Lamichhane, Rauf’s inspiring journey in the BBL has been riveting. South African speedster Steyn will now be heading back to his country for the England series leaving Rauf with another chance to make an impact in the BBL.
With Steyn set to depart, Rauf spent some quality time with the legendary paceman. The Lahore Qalandars recruit posted a couple of pictures of his memorable outings with his fast bowling idol and wrote a heartfelt caption denoting respect for Steyn.
