Rashid Khan has been released by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the next edition of IPL.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad bought an Afghanistan leg-spinner, Rashid Khan, for 4 Crores in 2017.

The Afghanistan spinner has played 76 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL and has managed to pick 93 wickets at an outstanding economy of 6.33.

5 possible teams that can target Rashid Khan are:

1. Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB could be interested in buying the services of Rashid Khan. The presence of Rashid Khan alongside Yuzvendra Chahal could make them a team to beat. RCB has played well in the last couple of years and reached the playoffs on both occasions. They would be keen to lift the title next year.

2. Delhi Capitals

They have had a pretty good bowling attack and in order to further strengthen that, they could splurge a huge amount of money for Rashid Khan. Adding Rashid Khan could add a different variety to their bowling attack.

3. Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians know what Rashid Khan brings to the table and they will definitely be one of the teams that could engage in a bidding war for him in the auctions.

4. Chennai Super Kings

Chennai could go for someone like Rashid Khan. He will bolster the spin attack, which will have the likes of Moeen Ali and Jadeja.

5. Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings are likely to go into the auction with at least more than 70 crores and they could spend a lot of money for the Afghanistan spinner if he gets back into the auction pool.
