PBKS vs SRH, Match 28 Review

Sunrisers Hyderabad are on a roll in this IPL. They have now won 4 games in a row. Their latest victims were the Punjab Kings who were riding high after the win against Mumbai. But SRH swatted them aside easily by 7 wickets to go 3rd on the points table.

Punjab were rocked before the game began as Captain Mayank Agarwal was ruled out due to toe injury and Shikhar Dhawan led the side in his place. Batting first their batters struggled apart from Liam Livingstone who has been exceptional for them in this season. He was on song today as well murdering the bowling lineup scoring yet another half Century. Rest of the batters couldn’t quite get going as they were bowled out for 151 in 20 overs. Umran Malik was the star of the show who bowled a Maiden in the 20th over in which Punjab lost 4 wickets and he took 3 out of it. It was another impressive performance from the Youngster who had his career best performance in this game picking up 4 for 28. Bhuvneshwar Kumar also did a terrific job by picking up 3 wickets for 22 runs.

Sunrisers were in a spot of bother losing Kane Williamson early. But then Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi did the repair job and brought them back in the game. Tripathi continued from where he left off the other day hitting boundaries at will. But then just as things were looking settled both the batters lost their wickets. But then inform Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran steadied the ship and ensured that there were no more hiccups. They played some sensible cricket and gave Punjab no opportunity to come back into the contest. Punjab bowlers were good but they didn’t had lot to defend and as a result couldn’t quite make a match out of it.
