20 April, 2018, 00:55 | Author: Felix Jensen
  • But just when Bangalore side was at the brink of the win the South African player was dismissed by Andrew Tye in the 19th over

For Punjab, Mohit Sharma and Andrew Tye took two wickets each.

Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson were the lone two significant contributors with 57 not out and 54 respectively.

What did Ashwin do right? Gayle was having trouble while running, but that proved more detrimental for SRH as the big man dealt in sixes only. For Sunrisers, it was their first defeat after three successive wins. As it happened KXIP though remained at third in the Indian Premier League standings with six points from four games. And boy, did KXIP batsman back their captain's call!

Gayle smashed an unbeaten 104 off 63 - his 21st century in T20s - to power Punjab to 193 for 3.

So what hit SRH's famed bowling? Considering that it was his first match against in this edition of IPL, he showed the world why he is still the most destructive in the world.

It was Gayle's way of shifting gears; his half-century took 39 balls.

He dedicated the century to his daughter. He conceded 55 runs in his four overs for a wicket. Punjab were fantastic with the ball not so much in the field.

Barron, Chippewa, Dunn, Eau Claire, Pepin, Polk and Rusk counties in Wisconsin have been placed under a winter storm warning. Denver will sit on the western edge of potential blizzard conditions developing on the adjacent plains by Friday afternoon.

How did KXIP's bowlers fare? The SRH bowlers have been exceptional and they exhibited the same viciousness till the fourth over after which Christopher Henry Gayle ripped the heart out of the Sunrisers bowlers. And they will need it for they have Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils in the next four days. both away games. Saha then fell in the second over, bowled by Mohit Sharma (2-51).

Led by Kane Williamson, the SunRisers Hyderabad has been doing exceptionally well even without disgraced Australian cricketer David Warner.

Another positive aspect for the hosts of Thursday's match is that of KL Rahul, who brought up the fastest-ever IPL fifty in Punjab's first match of their campaign against DD. Tonight was an example of what SRH would be hoping doesn't become a trend in tall chases. They have won 8 out of 10 games against KXIP.

Sunrisers Hyderabad's chase got off to a poor start as Shikhar Dhawan was retired hurt in the first over itself. Pathan and Saha failed to get going and SRH were left playing catch up. SRH are just ahead on virtue of a superior net run-rate.

Where do they go next?

Gayle took apart the normally risky Rashid Khan with aplomb, the explosive left-handed opener carrying his bat and sending the ball to all corners.
