During the 20th match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Hyderabad, Kane Williamson, captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad, took on Karn Sharma to the extent that the over changed the course of the match for his team.

After Williamson sent Chennai Super Kings in to bat, his bowlers did not let the visiting team get off to a flying start. However, a 112-run partnership between Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu saw Chennai Super Kings score 182-3 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.

Williamson played a captain’s knock today.

In the second innings, the Sunrisers too failed to get off a great start, losing three wickets in the powerplay. Having said that, Kane Williamson was determined and played no loose shot to give the opposition any hope.

After getting his eye in, Williamson played the big shots to full effect. In the 15th over of the innings, he smacked 22 runs in a Karn Sharma over. On the second delivery of Sharma’s third over, Williamson hit him for a towering six over the cow corner. Williamson hit another six over the deep square leg fielder on the penultimate delivery of the over.

He followed it up with a six through the long off region as the bowler kept bowling the same length.
