SunRisers Hyderabad defeat Gujarat Titans by 8 wkts

 Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday beat a formidable Gujarat Titans side by eight wickets at the DY Patil Sports Academy.

Sunrisers thus recorded their second consecutive win after defeating Chennai Super Kings on Saturday last, while it was the Titan’s first defeat after a hat-trick of wins.

Captain Kane Williamson lead from the front with a solid 57 while Nicholas Pooran gave the finishing touches with a late flourish on Monday. However, Gujarat Titans’s captain Hardik Pandya’s responsible 50 not out off 42 balls Captain Kane Williamson lead from the front with a solid 57 while Nicholas Pooran gave the finishing touches with a late flourish on Monday. However, Gujarat Titans’s captain Hardik Pandya’s responsible 50 not out off 42 balls helped Gujarat Titans post a competitive 162 for 7 after a top-order failure but that was not enough to salvage the team.

Williamson, whose 46-ball knock was studded with two fours and four sixes, first added 64-runs with opener Abhishek Sharma (42 off 32 balls) to lay the foundation of the win. Williamson then forged a 40-run stand with Rahul Tripathi, who retired hurt on 17, to inch closer to the win.

Pooran (34 not out off 18 balls) sealed the deal with his brutal hitting after Williamson was out in the 17th over. His innings was studded with two fours and an equal number of sixes. He hit a six to finish the match, taking his side to 168 for 2 in 19.1 overs.

There were two game changing moments. First, in the 13th over, Williamson launched into Hardik Pandya by hitting him for two sixes. Then, in the 16th over bowled by Lockie Ferguson, the Sunrisers captain clobbered a six and a boundary, as SRH were cruising towards the target.

On the other hand, Gujarat lost Wade (19), Shubman Gill (7) and one-down batter Sai Sudarshan (11) cheaply.

Gill was undone by a stunning one-handed diving catch by Rahul Tripathi at cover, off Bhuvneshwar, in the third over.

Sudarshan, who was looking rusty, became Natarajan’s first victim, after ballooning to Kane Williamson at mid-off.
