Finch Puts SRH On The Points Table


Both the teams were desperate to win this match. SRH was probably the more desperate of the two as they had not registered a single point till now and that showed in their performance. We have mentioned it in one of our past sidelights that SRH’s TOP 3 are the best T20 players and they should fire and the result may be different. That’s exactly what happened in this match. With a near century partnership between the openers and then Warner playing the second fiddle to Finch SRH managed a big score of 184. Although they were helped by some poor fielding by DD as well. DD started well but not well enough and kept on loosing wickets at regular passages and in the end it was too much to ask for Duminy to complete the victory.
