KXIP also lost against SRH: Punjab lost to these 5 reasons –
1- The first reason for Punjab losing is their bowlers not taking wickets. This match was very bad for Punjab, Hyderabad team decided to bat first after winning the toss in yesterday’s match.
And this decision proved to be right when no Punjab bowler could stop his opener batsmen. Hyderabad’s first wicket fell in the 16th over, with the Hyderabad batsmen already invading the 160-run opening partnership and this was the reason for Punjab losing.
2- The second reason for Punjab’s defeat was the dropping of Bairstow’s catch by Punjab captain Lokesh Rahul at the beginning of Hyderabad’s innings. At that time Gnome Bairstow was on a personal score of 17 runs. After that, taking advantage of this life, he played excellent innings of 97 runs in 55 balls.
3- Mayank Agarwal’s run-out has been the reason for Punjab losing. Mayank Agarwal, who was batting extremely well in this tournament, was also batting very well against Hyderabad. But due to a misunderstanding of Lokesh Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, Agarwal was run out on a personal score of 9 runs.
4. The fourth reason for Punjab’s defeat has been Glenn Maxwell’s relentless batting. Punjab all-rounder Glenn Maxwell once again disappointed with his bat and returned to the pavilion after scoring extremely poor cricket, scoring 7 runs in 12 balls, and being run out on a crucial occasion.
5- The fifth reason for Punjab losing is the continued wicket fall. In this match, when Punjab got off to chase the target and after Mayank’s dismissal, successive wickets fell, Nicholas Pooran was hitting big sixes at the crease. On the other hand, no batsman was supporting them. Nicholas Puran came under pressure due to frequent wickets falling and he was also dismissed after playing an innings of 77 runs.
