Previous Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag thought that it was hard to fathom Sunrisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) approach in their match against the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday, October 24 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The Orange Army lost the match by 12 runs, pursuing an unassuming objective of 127. SRH were bowled out for 114 one ball shy of their 20 overs.
David Warner and Jonny Bairstow’s 56-run represent the initial wicket off 38 balls put the Sunrisers on the driver’s seat. Yet, after the pair died in a space of six balls, KL Rahul and Co got a traction back into the challenge. SRH endured a shocking breakdown, getting diminished from 100 for three of every 16 overs to 114 all-out in 19.5 overs.
“I was unable to comprehend what SunRisers Hyderabad were attempting to do as they lost the match in a run-a-ball circumstance. Had the objective been an excessive amount to pursue, the misfortune would even now have processed. SRH caused their own downfall on the field with such an exhibition,” Sehwag was cited as saying to Cricbuzz.
SRH were in an entirely agreeable situation to dominate the game: Sehwag
Sehwag felt that Jason Holder and Rashid Khan, both having captained their public groups West Indies and Afghanistan-ought to have taken the onus of directing SRH past the end goal. Manish Pandey’s difficult 29-ball 15 didn’t enable SRH’s to cause either.
Vijay Shankar scored 26 runs off 27 balls with four fours. In any case, after he copped a blow on the head, he got out to Arshdeep Singh. Sehwag didn’t mince any words in saying that SRH made a dinner of a simple run-pursue.
“Somebody needed to assume the liability from the front, and it could either have been Manish Pandey or Vijay Shankar, however nobody did it. Indeed, even Jason Holder and Rashid Khan are the captains of their particular public groups and in this manner, they might have batted all the more dependably. All the batsmen appeared in a rush to complete the match,” he expressed.
“It’s hard for individuals like us to fathom such a presentation. They were in a truly agreeable situation to dominate the game as SRH required just 26 runs in 24 balls. Lords XI Punjab didn’t have such quality bowling line up,” Virender Sehwag included.
