IPL 2021: Punjab Kings beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in low-scoring thriller

Punjab Kings kept their hopes of making it to the play-offs alive with a nail-bitting five-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Saturday.

Punjab bowlers successfully defended 125-7 despite SRH’s Jason Holder threatening to take the game away with an unbeaten 47 off 29 balls. 

Earlier, sent in to bat, Punjab Kings batsmen struggled to get going on a slow wicket and failed to stitch any big partnership, the highest being the 30-run stand between Chris Gayle and Aiden Markram, who top-scored with a 32-ball 27, for the third wicket.

Captain KL Rahul had scored 49 in the previous match, but was dismissed rather early this time as he fell to Holder’s first ball for a run-a-ball 21 in the fifth over.
The other opener, Mayank Agarwal (5), who had scored 67 against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday, was out four balls later as he sliced a Holder delivery to Kane Williamson at mid-off.

Deepak Hooda (13) hit some lusty blows before substitute fielder J Suchith plucked the ball out of thin air in an outstanding fielding effort. Punjab took 14 runs from the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
