Mitchell Johnson dismisses Karn Sharma, Kings XI Punjab nearing victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2014

Apr 22, 2014

Sunrisers Hyderabad are on their way to another loss in IPL 2014, against Kings XI Punjab as they have lost eight wickets for just 116 runs on board, and with just two overs remaining in the match. Chasing Kings XI Punjab’s mammoth total of 193, Sunrisers Hyderabad made a poor start as they lost four wickets in the first six overs — Shikhar Dhawan, Aaron Finch and David Warner and Venugopal Rao. Lakshmipathy Balaji took the Australians while Mitchell Johnson dismissed Dhawan. Their middle-order too failed as Venugopal Rao and Irfan Pathan couldn’t form a partnership with Lokesh Rahul. Darren Sammy then joined Rahul at the centre, and played a few shots, but he too didn’t last long.

Wickets have kept on tumbling at regular intervals as Punjab have never really looked the part in this chase.

Earlier in the innings, opening alongside Finch, the Hyderabad captain, Shikhar Dhawan didn’t last long as he fell to Mitchell Johnson in the second over. Dhawan lasted for just three balls, his feet were not moving as he under-edged a widish delivery outside the off-stump to hand an easy catch to Wriddhiman Saha.

Dhawan’s wicket brought Finch’s Australian opening partner, David Warner to the centre. Warner too took his time early on in the innings, and that allowed the Punjab bowlers to build some more pressure as the asking rate started to rise.

Hyderabad were then dealt another blow as Finch lost his wicket to Lakshmipathy Balaji in the fifth over. Balaji castled him. In the same over, Balaji dismissed Warner as well as the Australian handed an easy catch to the point fielder.

SRH lost their most formidable batsmen inside the powerplay, and their fragile middle-order has failed to.
