Kings XI Punjab Won their Third Win in IPL 2018-KXIP Vs SRH Highlights
KXIP Vs SRH-Match 16, a thoroughly deserved victory for Kings XI Punjab as they beat Sunrises Hyderabad by 15 runs. Sunrises Hyderabad’s unbeaten streak in IPL 2018 came to an end when they took KXIP at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Thursday. Match has been started, KXIP won the toss and chose for bating. Chris Gayle stole the show with his fine century and he remained unbeaten on 104 off by 63 balls. His innings was laced with 11 sixes and a solitary four. Further, Lokesh Rahul and Gayle stitched a 53-run opening wicket partnership. Now, Rahul departed for 18 runs in the 8th over itself and Mayank Agarwal gives his solid start but he too chipped in with 18 runs by hitting two fours and one six. After his dismissal, Karun Nair came to the stadium and give his strong support to the star of the match, Gayle. Entire SRH bowlers faced the wrath of Gayle’s power hitting.
Sunrisers Hyderabad was never in this game the moment the chase began. Losing Shikhar Dhawan to injury was more or less a blow they couldn’t recover from. After that point, the innings never picked up the pace. Williamson tried to keep it alive somehow, but his efforts fell short. Pandey stayed till the end, but his knock was less than ideal. Had he accelerated a bit more in the middle overs, his side would have had a fighting chance at least, as shown by Shakib when he came on late.
