This was one for those normal games of T20 which had not many twists and turns. Although at one time SRH was looking good to score 180 runs but then by losing too many wickets they could manage on 145 runs in the end. They have saved many low score than this on this very ground but this was not one of their best days. SRH got good start via a false decision by the umpire who gave Gambhir out despite there was a huge gap between the bat and the ball. Gambhir who is known for showing his emotions in public showed some serious dissent which may make the match referee work bit hard and he may be penalized for sure.
