It did not start well for SRH as they lost two wickets in the first over of the run-chase. Mayank Agarwal put a little score on the board and then he also got dismissed. The middle order of SRH batting struggled a great deal as no one made a respectable score. Harry Brook and Adil Rashid (English batsmen) also could not put SRH out of their misery at that time.

However, in the end, it was the partnership between Abdul Samad and Umran Malik that got SRH to over a hundred runs. But the overall performance by the SRH batters was not satisfactory at all.

Additionally, T Natarajan also bowled really well and gathered two wickets against RR. Umran Malik also stepped up and took the wicket of Devdutt Padikkal.

Rashid Khan’s bowling was also up to the mark but he was unfortunate today in the matter of taking wickets. Similarly, Bhuvineshwar Kumar and Washington Sundar had the same fate today.
