After coming to chase a challenging target of 178, SRH did not get an ideal start against KKR on Saturday. They only managed to score 54/2 in 8.2 overs, with Rahul Tripathi being the latest man to return to the pavilion. Kane Williamson, the SRH skipper, departed earlier after playing a slow knock of nine off 17 balls.

Kane Williamson is having a terrible IPL campaign this year. He struggled to get going again, this time against KKR. He tried to be creative against Andre Russell in the sixth over, as he was seen attempting to play a scoop shot over fine leg. However, the ball was on the off stump, and Williamson failed to get any connection. It rattled the off stick, and Brian Lara, the SRH batting coach, was seen shaking his head at the SRH dugout following his dismissal.

Here is the video of the dismissal:
