Medium pacer Rishi Dhwan was given the ball in the 10th over of the match of the Shivam struck the much needed breakthrough for Kings XI Punjab. The Sunrisers Hyderabad had got off to a flying start through Shikhar Dhawan’s return to form in style. This the first knock of note for Dhawan in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, after a string of low scores had come as a big setback to the southpaw.


The other Dhawan, Rishi bowled a very tidy over and provided the much needed brake on the scoring with a tidy line and by not allowing the batsmen to free their arms. The 11th over by Shivam saw Naman Ojha on the charge. First the batsman smashed the ball over long on for a huge six to get the crowd alive and followed that with a delicious cut shot but was well cut off at deep point by Samdeep Sharma. The batsmen rotated the strike for the rest of the over to take 11 of the over. After looking so good, Dhawan dismissed Dhawan. It was a tame shot to short fine leg and Shivam took a simple catch to send the Hyderabad captain to the pavilion for 45. Earlier, Kings XI Punjab captain George Bailey won the toss and decided to field first. Both teams made changes to their respective- line-ups.
