A 9-wicket win, a superior batting performance paired with an emphatic bowling performance and there just couldn’t have been a better day out in the Indian Premier League for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Cleaning up KKR by 9 wickets, the Kane Williamson lead side made light work of their opposition as Jonny Bairstow and David Warner wiped the floor with a waning KKR side. As Bairstow and Warner obliterated everything that was thrown their way in a terrific 131 run partnership in 12.2 overs, KKR were condemned to their 4th straight defeat, putting them deep down in the pits of a bottom place finish for the season.

On a pitch that was cut from the same cloth as some of the best batting surfaces in the world, Bairstow and Warner didn’t need to be asked a second time to indulge in their stroke play.

Both Warner (67) and Bairstow (80) played out identical innings, getting their half-centuries in 28 balls as SRH all but won the match in the opening 10 overs itself. It was a perfect partnership, one that only dwindled KKR, exposing the many weaknesses in Karthik’s captaincy.

Despite getting a wicket at long last in the form of Warner, it was too little too late for KKR with Williamson and Bairstow applying the final touches to take their side past the finishing line. It was not just the win, but the brilliant manner in which it came about for SRH that saw them stamp their authority on the tournament after a mid-season blip, taking their net run rate to 0.737, the highest of any side in the league this season.

Wickets from all quarters with Khaleel (3), Bhuvneshwar (2) and Sandeep and Rashid picking up one wicket saw SRH put in a stupendous bowling performance in unison to deliver a deadly spell that saw KKR fail in their task of putting on a stand of note.

However, no one else was able to capitalize on it, floundering in a diabolic and woeful display from the middle-order.
