Captains View

KL Rahul | Punjab Kings Skipper

We will bat first. Pretty obvious decision, put the runs on the board and defend it. Two changes for us – Meredith and Jhye Richardson miss out; Fabian Allen and Moises Henriques in – we are petty clear, everyone have been given responsibilities – we’re a new team this season, will take time for the roles to sink in for everyone. A couple of wins and the belief will be back.

David Warner | SRH Skipper

Everyone in this franchise are positive – need to learn from the mistakes, those little things in the game. Kane Williamson is in, he replaces Mujeeb. Samad is out with a hamstring pull, Kedar replaces him, Manish misses out as well, replaced by Siddarth Kaul.

Conditions over here are very different to what we encountered in Dubai last season. Need to bowl well and get back to winning ways.

IPL 2021 PBKS vs SRH Highlights

Punjab Kings(PBKS) Batting

KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal gets into the crease to lead Punjab Kings while Abhishek Sharma opens the bowling attack onbehalf of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Though PBKS made a slow start they lose their skipper’s wicket at an early stage of the game. Bhuvi dismissed KL Rahul for 4 runs in the 3rd over of the first innings. All though PBKS has a strong batting order which includes Agarwal, Gayle, and much more star players PBKS struggles to make a partnership.

Pooran again made an unwanted moment by dismissing for 0 run without even facing a single ball. Pooran’s performance has been never changed in the past 4 games of the IPL 2021.

Without making a descent partnership Punjab Kings loses all their 10 wickets after scoring 120 runs with 2 balls remaining.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Batting

To chase an easy target of 121 runs SRH’s Warner and Bairstow gets into the crease while Shami opens the bowling attack for Punjab Kings.

SRH strikers start the game without any pressure. Punjab Kings bowlers need to make early wickets to increase their winning percentage. But the strong opening duo never gave a chance to draw the first blood for SRH.

After making a 73 runs partnership David Warner loses his wicket to Fabian Allen after scoring 37 runs off 37 deliveries. Bairstow then join hands with Kane Williamson and leads SRH to taste their first victory of the IPL 2021 by beating PBKS by 9 wickets.

Man of the Match

  • Name: Jonny Bairstow
  • Team: Sunrisers Hyderabad
  • Role: Batsman
  • Stats: 63 runs from 56 deliveries

It’s pretty humid, it’s pretty hot especially with the day game. I am just absolutely over the moon to get over the line. It’s been a tricky start for us. We’ve been very close in most of the games, just haven’t got over the line, probably a bit of carelessness.

To be there till the end was really pleasing. It was tricky …. powerplay, we had to take it on. In each game we’ve seen, it’s gotten harder and harder as the game progressed specially in the second innings.

We made sure we made full advantage of it (powerplay). Fifty off the first six was pleasing. From there, if you get ahead and if you got people in the end, it’s always handy. I don’t really need not talk about how good Kane is.

The way in which he manipulates the ball and rotates strikes is great. It’s great to get off the mark.
