Sunrisers Hyderabad finally recorded the win in IPL 14. After the match’s victory, SRH captain David Warner spoke during the post-match presentation. “Today’s victory eased our stress. The role of our bowlers in the match victory was unforgettable. The match came into our hands only when they really tied Punjab to a low score with their brilliant bowling.
Abhishek Sharma bowling with 3 wickets I liked it very much. It would have been nice if I could have batted longer. And with the arrival of Williamson in the final team, our strength increased. His arrival gave us success and increased confidence. Kane effectively played the role of anchor who stood by Bairstow after I was out. This victory gave us new inspiration and we will try to continue the same in the upcoming matches, ”he said.
Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul said, “This is our first match in Chennai. We do not Expected to play like this as the pitch situation is new to us. But the situation would have been different if we had added another 10-15 runs in addition to the score we made.
Their bowling may have been a factor in SRH’s victory, as they had already played three matches and gained awareness on the pitch and our batting is not as good as we thought it would be today. The low score did not underestimate the performance of our bowlers. However, with the loss of three matches in a row, the pressure has increased.
We will take care of it without affecting the upcoming matches, ”he said. With the victory over Punjab, SRH improved its run rate and reached the 5th position in the points table. Punjab Kings finished last with the third defeat in a row.
