The Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium was an exciting one that kept the viewers at the edge of their seats. The nail-biting, hair-raising 19th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw the SRH break the losing spell as they won by 5 runs.
Punjab was wiped out as the Hyderabad bowlers took all 10 wickets. In the last over, Punjab needed six runs off four balls but Siddhart Kaul took his only and the innings last of Ishant Sharma
Bowling star Mohit Sharma of Punjab contributed well to his team as Manan Vohra smashed boundaries after boundaries and managed to score a 95 off just 50 balls for Punjab before he was dismissed due to an LBW in the 19th over delivered by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. And everything that he built up essentially went downhill from there.
Afghan power reigned for the Sunrisers as Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan picked up wickets one after the other to put the Glenn Maxwell-led team under pressure. Nabi picked up one wicket and Khan Two.
