Kings XI Punjab had lost the wicket of Virender Sehwag after an early blitz in their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Indian Premier League (IPL) 7.
Amit Mishra was handed the ball in the third over and the batsmen were growing in confidence. Pujara slapped one down the ground but Sehwag yet again, turned back clock to smash a ball that was tossed up to middle stump to smack the ball over Dale Steyn at long on for a six. Sehwag yet again tried the same shot but didn’t time it properly; the ball landed kindly to Darren Sammy’s palms at long-off and the former Indian opener perished to the pavilion.
Karn Sharma came on to bowl the second over and it was evident that the brakes would be put on the scoring rate. Pujara struggled with the leg-spinner and only three came of Karn’s over. Mishra continued to bowl and singles were taken of all the deliveries.
