Kings XI bat; Sunrisers bring in Jordan

Kings XI bat; Sunrisers bring in Jordan”

First, Chris Gayle's unbeaten 104-run knock helped Punjab posted a mammoth 193/3 and then, its bowlers managed to restrict the visitors to 178/4 in their allotted 20 overs. Thereafter, four wicket-less overs followed and witnessed 51 runs.

Chris Gayle's century saw Kings XI Punjab beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 15 runs in their IPL2018 game in Mohali on Thursday. In reply, Hyderabad scored 178 for 4, going down by 15 runs.

Kiwi Kane Williamson (54 - caught Finch, bowled Tye) and Manish Pandey (57 not out) put on 76 for the third wicket although their partnership was a bit too slow as the asking rate mounted. Following a cautious power-play, that produced 49 runs, the pace slackened with the next five overs resulting in two dismissals and an addition of 37 runs. Yusuf Pathan (19) got two reprieves with Ashwin and Yuvraj Singh dropping sitters off Mohit and Barinder Sran's bowling respectively.

At the other end, KL Rahul (18 off 21 balls) wasn't quite looking the same force that saw him score an IPL-record 14-ball fifty in Kings XI's first game, ultimately falling lbw to Rashid in the eighth over.

However, since then it all seemed to go the hosts' way as they finished with a huge total.

Trump wanted a " more robust attack" on Bashar al-Assad's regime, people familiar with the process told the Wall Street Journal . This led to days of confused messaging , and little has been said to clarify where the United States now stands.

But, the innings exploded into life in the fourth over when Gayle slapped England's Chris Jordan (0-31) - in for his first game of this year's IPL - for a six and a four off consecutive deliveries. SRH have by far looked the best team in the tournament. It was an opportunity for the men in red to make it three wins in as many matches at their official home ground before they shift their base to Indore for the rest of the season.

Hyderabad may continue to use wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha as a top-order batsman even if he has not cashed in on the opportunities so far. Considering that it was his first match against in this edition of IPL, he showed the world why he is still the most destructive in the world. It didn't help Hyderabad that Shikhar Dhawan was forced to retire hurt in the second ball of the chase.

Gayle took apart the normally unsafe Rashid Khan with aplomb, the explosive left-handed opener carrying his bat and sending the ball to all corners.

Telecast: KXIP vs SRH match will be telecast by the Star Network.
