IPL 2021, PBKS vs SRH Highlights: Sunrisers Hyderabad registered their first points of the season after orchestrating a batting collapse from Punjab Kings in the IPL 2021 match on Wednesday. PBKS were all out for 120 in 19.4 overs. SRH overhauled the target with 9 wickets and 8 balls in hand.

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.

SRH win by 9 wickets with 8 balls remaining.

Arshdeep Singh bowl the 19th over. Bairstow pulls with force, smashes a six. That brings the target as close as possible. And oh, there's a dropped catch, Bairstow does get to continue his match-winning knock. The winning run is a wide. SRH win by 9 wickets with 8 balls remaining.

18:49 (IST)21 Apr 2021
50 for Bairstow

Hooda bowls the 18th over. One big over could undo all the hard yards put in by the Punjab bowlers to get themselves within a shout from a hopeless situation a few overs ago. FOUR, that's a fifty for Bairstow! Gets there with a strong pull. It comes off 48 balls.

SRH need 17 in 3 overs

Things are becoming a little tense in the middle. Williamson is dropped by Henriques, who puts in a dive but cannot get the ball to stick. Murugan Ashwin bowls another tight over. Just 4 off it. Sunrisers Hyderabad need 21 runs in 4 overs. Surely?

Cautious approach from SRH

Just 4 runs as Hooda comes back to bowls an over before the last TimeOut of the match. Fabian Allen continues after the break. Again, just 4 runs. SRH look intent on ensuring they aren't left with a middle order collapse while chasing.

SRH revert to singles

Bairstow too looks to check his pace after Warner's dismissal. Both batsmen look to place the ball into the gaps for the ones and twos. Williamson gets three with a deft touch past slip.

Warner out, Williamson steps in

Wicket! Fabian Allen strikes in his first over. Warner mistimes a pull and is caught out. He goes for 37. Which brings out Kane Williamson out for the first time. Fabian Allen has bowled a wicket maiden!

Spin brings down run rate

Murugan Ashwin is brought on as the Powerplay ends. Bairstow, Warner revert to singles. Hooda's over - the 8th - produces just 2 runs. Murugan Ashwin's next also produces just 6 runs. Warner steps out to Hooda and carves a six over extra cover but does not attack otherwise.

17:53 (IST)21 Apr 2021
SRH 50/0 after 6 overs

Henriques is into the attack in the 5th over, with SRH dealing in boundaries at the moment. Bairstow pulls with power. Six. His second six of the innings. Warner sweeps Arshdeep for four. A very productive Powerplay for SRH. They are 50/0 after 6 overs.

17:45 (IST)21 Apr 2021
Shami goes for runs

The boundaries keep coming, leaking holes in Punjab's meagre total. Arshdeep Singh replaces Fabian Allen at the other end, and he has comparatively more luck. 6 runs from the over, the most economical over so far.

SRH 33/0 after 4

17:34 (IST)21 Apr 2021
Strong start by Warner, Bairstow

The chase begins. Warner and Bairstow open the SRH innings. They could overhaul this target in 10 overs if they go at the rate they have gone before. Warner flashes a boundary through the off side in Shami's first over. Bairstow takes toll on Fabian Allen at the other end, ends the 2nd over with a six.

SRH 17/0 after 2

17:11 (IST)21 Apr 2021
Punjab all out for 120 in 19.4 overs

Khaleel finishes with figures of 3/21. Siddharth Kaul to bowl the last over, with Punjab not having much of a tail left to wag. There's a wicket off the first ball. The disaster continues in the last over. Murugan Ashwin is caught behind. Down to the last pair now as Arshdeep Singh comes in at 11. Some bonus runs come via byes. Can Punjab cross 120 after all? There is a run out! Punjab are all out for 120 in 19.4 overs.

17:03 (IST)21 Apr 2021
Khaleel's 3rd wicket

Shahrukh Khan does well to bat with the tail now. Tries to hit a boundary every over and face the majority of the strike. But he falls to Khaleel, whose slower ball does the trick once more. SRK is gone for 22.

PBKS 110/8 after 18.1

7th wicket - The slide continues

Khaleel Ahmed comes back into the attack in the death overs. And claims Fabian Allen's wicket. Warner grabs an easy catch. Murugan Ashwin comes in at 9. Punjab would do well to post a competetive total from here on.

Rashid Khan finishes with 1/17

Fabian Allen has joined Shahrukh Khan. Sid Kaul comes back into the attack in the 15th over. And bowls a no ball.

Bairstow's whirlwind stumping fortunes

Shahrukh Khan, the new man in at 7, survives a stumping opportunity as Bairstow fails to collect. The pressure continues from Rashid Khan -- on the keeper as much as the batsmen. SRK sweeps a six as Abhishek Sharma continues, that's the first six of the innings. But then there's a wicket. Bairstow does get a stumping right, off the more manageable spin of Abhishek. Henriques is gone for 14. 

PBKS 84/6 after 14

Abhishek Sharma chips in

Time for spin from both ends now. Abhishek Sharma is brought back into the attack. Hooda and Henriques look to place the ball around into gaps for ones and twos. At the end of 10 overs, Punjab reach 53/4. It's Abhishek Sharma who makes the next impact. Hooda is out LBW. Gone for 13.

Enter Rashid Khan

Vijay Shankar is thrown into the attack by SRH. Deepak Hooda has joined Gayle, with Punjab looking to arrest this slide. Hooda gets away with a pull shot which goes just over the fielder's head. Rashid Khan comes into the attack for the first time in the 9th over. Late entry for him. And he gets Gayle out! LBW. Gayle goes for 15. The slide continues for Punjab. Moses Henriques enters at 6.

Another one! A direct hit from Warner and Nicholas Pooran is run-out! Pooran is run out without facing a ball; third duck of the season for him. Punjab's innings is quickly descending into disarray. Their run rate has not crossed 6 once so far.
