The batsmen of Sunrisers Hyderabad took the foreground in their encounter against Kings XI Punjab, in the 33rd match of the Indian Premier League on April 28, 2017. Their spellbinding efforts have earned Sunrisers the number-three spot on the IPL table.
The strength and depth of Sunrisers was made strongly evident via the first three openers, who all managed to score at least a half century each. Shikhar Dhawan earned the highest of the three end totals, finishing convincingly on 77 runs before he was caught off full and outside off by Glenn Mawell.
Kane Williamson, on the other hand, earning 54 runs, showed a measured approach to T20 batting that allowed him to wisely seek out opportunities as soon as they presented themselves, rather than slugging away at every delivery.
Despite a noteworthy effort by Eoin Morgan nearing the end of the attempted chase by Kings XI, the target slipped further and further away as Rashid Khan and company had already done enough damage with the ball for much of a counter-attack to now be successfully staged.
