Bhuvaneshwar Kumar Helps SRH To Defend 134


The Sun Risers Hyderabad did what they have mastered last year. The only difference is that they used to do this at their home ground, mostly which they have done here in Ahmedabad last night. Last year SRH had defended even lower score than 134 which they posted last night at their home ground in Uppal near Hyderabad. But for this fiasco the Rajasthan Royals batsmen are also to be blamed for. Despite not having any pressure of the net run rate they kept on playing those ‘glory shots’ and kept on losing the wickets at regular intervals. Their middle order stuck when the spinners were on. All in all a forgetful home match for the Royals.
