SRH Skipper Kane Williamson Forgets The Name Of Shakib, Ajinkya Rehane Comes To Rescue

Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad both the teams played their first match against each other on Monday at the Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Ground. In the match, two cricketers made their captaincy debut Ajinkya Rehane and Kane Williamson.

Being a skipper of a team isn’t an easy thing. They have a lots of responsibilities on their shoulders. And one of the responsibility is to remember the names of the players of their team.

However, Kane Williamson wasn’t able to fulfill this responsibility and he forgot the name of Shakib Al Hasan but thankfully Ajinkya Rehane came to his rescue and reminded him of him.

During the time of toss before the match, both of the captains were involved in an interview. During the interview, Kane Williamson forgot the names of all the four overseas players who were in the playing XI. When asked about them, he said:

Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake, Myself and we have one more.”

But thankfully Ajinkya Rehane was quick to remind him of the player he was missing out, it was none other than Shakib Al Hasan. After he reminded him, both of the captains ended up laughing out loud.

Before an intense match ahead, this was surely a very candid moment for both the teams. Here’s the video have a look:


However, Sunrisers Hyderabad won the match over Rajasthan Royals with 9 wickets.
