Sunrisers Hyderabad ran in to bat at the PCA Stadium with the best opening pair in the IPL this season. David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have given three century stands to their side. In any case, Monday would not have been their day, as hosts Kings XI Punjab created a course of action and after that executed it to perfection, breaking the Warner-Bairstow relationship ahead of schedule to prevent SRH from escaping with the game.
The hosts by then conveyed a century stay with KL Rahul (71* off 53 balls) and Mayank Agarwal (55 off 43) including 114 for the second wicket to seal the match by six wickets.
Kings XI Punjab, in spite of losing Chris Gayle ahead of schedule to Rashid Khan, started well, hustling to 86 for one out of 11 overs. SRH required early wickets however their inability to do as such demonstrated exorbitant as even a late burst of wickets couldn’t save them. At last, Kings XI won with one ball to spare.

Right when the two were confined finally, Kings XI required just 19 runs off 17 balls.
Prior, even with taught bowling, SRH could hit only two sixes and 12 fours through their whole innings.
As Bairstow decomposed for one to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Warner had no real option except to burrow profound and sit tight for circumstances. His unbeaten 70 off 62 balls (6×4, 1×6), and an appearance by Deepak Hooda (14*) helped SRH come to a decent 150 for four out of 20 overs.
SRH slithered to 27 for 1 after the initial six overs and it appeared Kings XI Punjab’s choice to bowl was satisfying.

Only two fours came till the primary key time out in the ninth over, underlining the influence Kings XI held over SRH.
Indispensably for SRH, Warner showed guts to fight it out. Remarkable it may show up, yet Warner expected to squash it out and keep keeping it together with the expectation of complimentary balls which just every once in a while came. Warner was locked in with two pressing affiliations which ensured SRH bowlers had something to shield. He included 49 with Vijay Shankar for the second wicket and later included 55 for the third with Pandey (19).
Warner’s initial six came in the sixteenth over of Mujeeb, with the gathering’s 100 happening to 15.3 overs. Hooda then used the long handle to extraordinary effect in the last completed the process of, hitting Shami for a six and two fours. Mujeeb, yielding 34 in his four overs, wound up being the most exorbitant of the Punjab bowlers while Rajpoot surrendered just 21 yet went wicket-less.
