Exceptional individuals not only achieve recognition in their careers but also motivate entire generations. A jubilated Ali Khan was seen celebrating Devon Conway’s wicket with a suii after producing a seed as Texas Super Kings squared off against Los Angeles Knight Riders in Morrisville.

Eyeing to bounce back after finishing at the bottom of the points table in the 2023 edition, Jason Roy and Sunil Narine fell early after being put to bat first. Unbothered by the early setbacks, Unmukt Chand’s flamboyant act took center stage, steering the Knights to 162 in 20 overs. In reply, Devon Conway found his groove back keeping the Super Kings in the hunt with an impressive half-century dispute the fall of wickets from the other end. However, Narine’s ploy to make a sixth bowling change in the 14th over, paid rich dividends, sending Conway back to the hut. 

After scoring a 36-ball fifty in the 13th over, Ali Khan came wide of the popping crease from around the wicket to bowl a good length delivery that skidded onto the stump. Conway, just like many other New Zealand batters, tends to dab towards the third man frequently to rotate strike. The southpaw was late on a similar attempt and saw the white cherry beat the bat’s outside edge and knock the off stump out of the ground. Making an impact in his first over itself. Ali was jubilant and broke into a Cristian Ronaldo suii celebration before his teammates surrounded him in apllause.
