Falling wickets in the power play made the team in trouble
Rahul said- When you lose wickets in the power play, it becomes very difficult and they too when you are playing with only 6 batsmen. Mayank’s run out was not a good start for the team. This match is one of those days when you hit the air and the ball goes into the hands of the fielder.

It is fun to watch Puran’s batting
The captain of Kings XI also praised Niklas Puran (77 runs off 37 balls) and bowler Ravi Bishnoi. He said- It is fun to watch Puran’s batting. Whenever he gets a chance, he does better. This is a good thing for us. We knew he would do better.
Ravi Bishnoi enjoyed his bowling
Bishnoi bowled without getting scared. It doesn’t matter to him whether he is bowling in the power play or in the final overs. He enjoyed his bowling. All the players in the team are talented and professional, they understand the problems.
Nervous in partnership with Beyerstow and Warner
Rahul said- When Johnny Beyersto and David Warner were scoring, I was a little nervous. It was nice seeing Nicholas move. A 160-run partnership for the first wicket was formed between Beyersto and Warner. Byersto scored 97 off 55 balls and Warner scored 52 off 40 balls.
Warner praised Rakhid Khan and Beyerstow
Hyderabad Sunrisers captain David Warner praised Rashid Khan and England batsman Beyerstow. Warner said- I don’t know why people think in the end that two countries (England and Australia) hate each other. Both me and Byersto were enjoying the game. In the power play, I was giving him strikes and he was scoring runs. David Warner is an Australian cricketer, while Beyersto is from England. Warner also praised bowler Rashid Khan. Rashid took 3 wickets for 12 runs in 4 overs. Warner said – Rashid is a world class bowler. He bowls well under pressure.
