With the defeat in the match, Hyderabad became the first team to be knocked out of the play-off race in the current season.

Captain Kane Williamson (1) also could not show the courage to stand on the wicket. For Punjab, both these wickets came in the account of Mohammed Shami. Manish Pandey (13) also could not show anything amazing and his wicket came in Ravi Bishnoi's account.

Bishnoi took 2 wickets in an over

Ravi Bishnoi made a brilliant comeback in the playing XI and picked up two wickets in his one over. In the 13th over of Hyderabad's innings, Bishnoi broke the back of SRH's team by dismissing Kedar Jadhav (12) and Abdul Samad (1). Before these two wickets, he also showed Manish Pandey (13) the way to the pavilion.

Wriddhiman Saha struggled for a long time and was run out after scoring 37 balls (31) runs. Holder played an unbeaten innings of 47 runs off 29 balls for Hyderabad, but could not get the team to victory.

Punjab batsmen disappointed

Going to play first after losing the toss, Punjab started poorly. In the 5th over, Jason Holder got two big breakthroughs for SRH by dismissing KL Rahul (21) and Mayank Agarwal (5). A big innings was expected from Chris Gayle, but he also disappointed and (14) was dismissed by Rashid Khan. The bat of Nicholas Pooran (8) also remained silent and he returned to the pavilion after being dismissed by Sandeep Sharma. Aiden Markram played 32 balls, but could only score 27 runs.

Suchit's catch went viral
