Hyderabad needed 14 runs in the last over but Punjab bowler Arshadip Singh spent just 2 runs in this over. This bowler gave victory to his team by dismissing Priyam Garg and Sandeep Sharma. Punjab has retained their hopes of reaching the playoffs with this victory. Let us know that Punjab has won 5th in 11 matches.

Skipper Warner and wicketkeeper Bairstow gave a fast start to Hyderabad, chasing a small target of 127 runs. David Warner in particular looked very aggressive. Warner scored 35 runs with the help of 2 sixes and 3 fours. He, along with Bairstow, took Hyderabad to 50 in the powerplay, but as Punjab put on the spinners attack, Hyderabad came to the backfoot. First Warner was dismissed by Ravi Bishnoi for 35 runs. After this, Bairstow also settled for 19 runs. Abdul Samad was dismissed by Shami at 7. However, Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar shared 33 runs to bring Hyderabad into the match again.

After this, Punjab returned again from the 17th over. Chris Jordan gave his team a hope by dismissing Manish Pandey for 15 runs. In the 18th over, Arshdeep gave victory to Vijay Shankar for 26 runs and gave his team the victory. Hyderabad needed 17 runs in the last 2 overs but Chris Jordan took two wickets in this over after spending just 3 runs. Jordan dismissed Holder and Rashid Khan for two consecutive balls.

Hyderabad needed 14 runs in the last over and captain KL Rahul gave the ball to Arshadip Singh. Arshdeep let Priyam Garg score just one off the first ball. After this, he showed the path of pavilion to Sandeep Sharma on the next ball. On the third ball Arshdeep also dealt Priyam Garg. After this, he did not give any runs on the fourth ball. Khalil Ahmed was run out on the fifth ball and thus Hyderabad team was reduced to just 114 runs.

Earlier, Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday stopped Kings XI Punjab for 126 runs on seven wickets in the Indian Premier League match on the basis of the performance of their bowlers. After winning the toss, the decision of the first bowling captain David Warner was proved correct by the Sunrisers bowlers. Punjab wickets kept falling at regular intervals.

For Punjab, captain KL Rahul (27), Mandeep Singh (17) and Chris Gayle (20) started well but could not play solid innings. Punjab could not get a big partnership. Gayle came out to bat at number three and was not allowed to play openly by the Sunrisers bowlers by putting the ball outside the off stump. In the end, Gale played a bad shot off his West Indian teammate Jason Holder and Warner took a great catch in the long off.

Holder conceded 27 runs and Rashid took two wickets for 14 runs. At the same time, Sandeep Sharma took two wickets for 29 runs. Rashid bowled a bold blow to Punjab by bowling Rahul on the very first ball of the 11th over. At this time the score was 66 for three wickets.

Glenn Maxwell (12) continued in poor form and returned to Sandeep by catching Warner at long on. Deepak Hooda was tricked by Rashid and in an attempt to go ahead and play he fell victim to Bairstow. The Sunrisers bowlers had put such pressure that no fours were hit in Punjab’s innings till 11 overs. Nicholas Puran broke this pressure in the 19th over, who remained unbeaten after scoring 32 off 28 balls
