After winning the coin toss, Markram did not show any reluctance in giving the visitors the opportunity to bat first.

Punjab Kings Inning

In order to give his team a chance to fight, Dhawan produced the innings in his life with the same level of determination as a monk. Dhawan scored 99 runs without being dismissed off 66 balls, including 12 boundaries and five maximums.

Most notably, he did a good job of shepherding the not-out batsman Mohit Rathee with 1 score not out during the record-breaking tenth wicket stand in the Indian Premier League. Mohit was only given the opportunity to play two balls because Shikhar took the majority of the strikes.

In the final five overs of the innings, the partnership scored 55 runs, with Dhawan contributing 52 of those runs and hitting all of his maximums during this part of the play. The previous record was 47, which was set by Ankit Rajput and Tom Curran of the Rajasthan Royals in a match against the Kolkata Knight Riders in Dubai in the year 2020.

Sam Curran, who had a score of 22, was another sole batter for Punjab to score double digits.

The day’s tone was established when senior seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar provided the home team a dream start by leg before capturing Prabhsimran Singh on 0 with the 1st ball of the innings. This event was the defining moment of the day.

In the following over, Jansen joined in the fun by catching Matthew Short on 1 leg before, which brought the score for Punjab Kings down to 10 for 2. Jitesh Sharma was unable to keep up with Jansen’s speed and ultimately failed while attempting to hit his way out of a difficult situation.

Shikhar and Curran’s partnership for such 4th wicket was worth 41 runs, which contributed to the Kings reaching 41 for 3 in the powerplay. Curran was promoted to the batting position. However, the day belonged to the Sunrisers, as Markande made the breakthrough by getting Curran grabbed by Bhuvneshwar.

As a result of the Punjab batters’ inability to compete with Markande and the speedy Malik, the game devolved into a parade-like atmosphere. Shikhar had the indignity of having to see his own downfall from a different vantage point.

It was Markande’s second 4-wicket haul here on the ground when he took four wickets for 15 runs. Before that, he had a previous score of 4 for 23 for the Mumbai Indians almost five years ago.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Inning

Using a strategy that balanced caution and aggression, Aiden Markram and Rahul Tripathi made certain that there would be no more glitches. In particular, Tripathi went to work against the spin from Punjab by unleashing his strikes.

Tripathi delivered hits to all sections of the fence, leaving the bowlers from Punjab puzzled as he used his extensive arsenal of strokes.

As the Sunrisers’ reply reached 145 for 2 in 17.1 overs, Tripathi continued to bat without being dismissed while he was on 74 runs off 48 deliveries with 10 boundaries and 3 sixes. Markram was 37 off 21 balls with 6 fours, he was an effective foil for his partner during the unbeaten 100-run stand for the 3rd wicket, receiving 37 runs for his contribution.

After losing its openers with 45 already on the board, the Sunrisers were able to reach the target without too much difficulty. Harry Brook scoring 13 runs, who opened his innings with Mayank Agarwal, did not make it count because he was run out by Arshdeep Singh. Mayank Agarwal scored the first run of the session.

Mayank was given a respite when he was on 14 when wicket-keeper Jitesh Sharma did not take advantage of an opportunity that Nathan Ellis presented to him, but he did not stay for very long. Mayank, who was 21 at the time, was eliminated by leggie Rahul Chahar, and the hosts’ score was 45 at the time.

Heinrich Klaasen, a left-arm fast bowler named Marco Jansen, and a leggie named Mayank Markande came in for Adil Rashid, Anmolpreet Singh, and Abdul Samad for Sunrisers, and It did turn out to be a successful move even though Punjab were held to a modest score of 143 for 9 after the Sunrisers made their substitution.

Punjab was in a precarious position for about 15 overs of their innings thanks to the bowling of Lanky Jansen with 2/16, Umran Malik with 2/32, and Markande with 4/15; nevertheless, Punjab captain Shikhar Dhawan stole the show by scoring an outstanding unbeaten 99 runs.


On Sunday night at the RGIC Stadium, Sunrisers Hyderabad was able to revive their season with an 8-wicket victory over Punjab Kings after making 3 changes to the playing Eleven.
