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.

Punjab win

With 7 runs needed off 1 ball, Holder could not do it. It's done. Punjab have successfully defended that modest total and win by 5 runs. But what an innings by Holder. What a match!!

23:03 (IST)25 Sep 2021

Another 6 by Holder. He is the lifeline of SRH. Hyderabad need 10 off 4 balls. Tasty. SRH 116/7 after 19.2 ovs

23:00 (IST)25 Sep 2021
1 more to go

Arshdeep in inspired form as he completes the 19th over with just 4 runs off it. This has been a bowler's match.Hyderabad are all but done. Just one more over left. SRH 109/7 after 19 ovs.

22:57 (IST)25 Sep 2021
SRH 7 down

Rashid Khan is gone as Arshdeep scalps his wicket. Holder is holding down the fort. No more proper batsmen left. SRH 105/7 after 18.1 ovs

22:52 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Holder power

Shami to bowl his last over. Required run rate at 10. Holder hits him for a 6. He is SRH's only resistance so far. SRH 103/6 after 17.2 ovs

22:47 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Saha gone

Saha is gone. A terrible mix up as Saha is run out. He goes for 31. This is not what SRH needed. Just when they were on a roll, this happens. SRH 92/6 after 16.1 ovs

22:40 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Back to back sixes

Holder hits Ellis for back to back sixes. He can't, can he? A bit of relief for SRH. We are in for a hell of a finale if this continues. SRH 87/5 after 15.2 ovs

22:38 (IST)25 Sep 2021

Bishnoi bowls his last over. Was following the usual pattern before Holder whacks him for a six. He did it with the ball. Can he do it with the bat? SRH 75/5 after 15 ovs.

22:31 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Big trouble for Hyderabad

Abdul Samad is also gone. Hyderabad's problems show no signs of stopping. Samad goes to heave that full ball on off to the on side, but gets an edge, with the ball flying to Gayle, where he doesn't have to move to complete the catch. Sunrisers have now lost half their side. SRH 60/5 after 13 ovs.

22:26 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Jadhav is also gone

And Jadhav is gone. Taken by Bishnoi. The wickets continue to tumble. Hyderabad in a quagmire with no way out. SRH 56/4 after 12.2 ovs

22:19 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Runrate going up

Runrate keeps creeping up as SRH are now dealing with just singles and 2s. They need to do something different. Just 4 off the 11th over. Very tight lines. SRH 47/3 after 11 ovs.

22:15 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Halfway mark

Ellis comes in to bowl. The Punjab bowlers are having a great game as Ellis stifles the Hyderabad batsmen. Just 4 off it. SRH 43/3 after 10 ovs.

22:08 (IST)25 Sep 2021

Harpreet Brar is back in the attack. Saha still remains for SRH though but he is going to need support. Runrate is creeping up. Just 7 off the 9th over. It's 39/3 and a timeout.

22:04 (IST)25 Sep 2021
Pandey done

Bishnoi comes in the attack. Finally Pandey hits a boundary off the second ball. Let's see if he can build on that. Nope, he can't. He is clean bowled by Bishnoi in the last ball of the over. Pandey goes for 13. SRH in a bit of a bother. SRH 32/3 after 8 ovs.

21:57 (IST)25 Sep 2021

3 overs done for Shami

The Kings were well-placed to win their first IPL game of the UAE leg before committing harakari in the last over bowled by Kartik Tyagi. They lost two wickets and scored just one run while needing four to win against Rajasthan. Despite being packed with excellent Indian and foreign talent, Punjab Kings have regularly messed up games and skipper KL Rahul will have to address their inconsistency. Punjab Kings have also lacked any kind of stability over the last 14 seasons with captains and coaches being changed frequently.  For Sunrisers, it is all about enjoying the remaining few games and ending on a high.
