Punjab Kings won the toss and opted to bat first. The slide began with KL Rahul’s wicket for 4 as Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave SRH a dream start. Mayank Agarwal (22) stuck around to keep Punjab afloat in the Powerplay but wickets kept falling at regular intervals. Rashid Khan (1/17) and Abhishek Sharma (2/24) turned the screws into their middle order before Khaleel Ahmed (3/21) delivered the killing blow with the wicket of Shahrukh Khan (22), the joint highest scorer in the innings. In reply, David Warner and Jonny Bairstow got off to a roaring start, getting 50 runs in the Powerplay. Kane Williamson joined Bairstow, who remained unbeaten on 63 at close of play, as SRH then reverted to a cautious approach, reaching the target in the 19th over.
