IPL 2021, SRH vs PBKS Highlights: Punjab Kings (PBKS) moved up to fifth in the Indian Premier League (IPL) standings after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by five runs at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah on Saturday.
After being sent to bat, PBKS had a slow start, losing both their openers KL Rahul (21) and Mayank Agarwal (5) in quick fashion. The middle order failed to do much as Chris Gayle, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran were stifled by a disciplined SRH bowling effort. PBKS ended their innings on 125/7 at the end of 20 overs. Chasing, SRH had a torrid start, losing David Warner (2) and Kane Williamson (1) inside three overs. Jason Holder put up a late fight with a brilliant 29-ball 47* but it didn’t prove to be enough in the end. SRH were knocked out of the race of the play-offs after the loss.
