The match between the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) was a low-scoring encounter as compared to the other game in the tournament so far. After being asked to bat first, PBKS only managed to reach the score of 151 from their full quota of twenty overs. For Punjab, Liam Livingstone was the star with the bat as he amassed 60 from 33 balls which helped them reach a fighting total.

SRH came out to bat in what should have been a comfortable chase from the word go. However, the SRH skipper got out for just 3 runs. Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi stitched an important partnership to help them get back in the game.

After Tripathi’s wicket, Aiden Markram came out in the middle. The South African started batting well and looked to take the game away from SRH. On the third ball of the 13th over of the second innings there came an opportunity for Kagiso Rabada to run his South African mate out.
