Kings XI Punjab needed to score 160 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad to snap out of their two-match losing streak in the IPL but they failed to do so. The primary reason for that was a terrible batting performance by their top order, with the exception of the young Manan Vohra.
Vohra played the best innings of his IPL career as blasted 95 runs off just 50 deliveries, but couldn't take his team home.
And then came the innings' biggest over, Vohra became the first batsman to solve the Rashid Khan 'mystery' as he hit the Afghan leg-spinner for 20 runs in five deliveries to bring the target within reach as Punjab now needed 35 runs to win off the last four overs.
Vohra kept KXIP in the hunt by helping the team take 12 runs off Siddarth Kaul' 18th over as the visitors now needed 16 runs off the last two overs.
But Bhuvneshwar Kumar would have the last laugh as he first dismissed KC Cariappa and then trapped Vohra in front with a perfect yorker to bring the curtains down on Vohra's brilliant effort.
His dismissal meant Punajb had their last pair of Ishant Sharma and Sandeep Sharma out in the middle and Sunrisers finally clinched the match by 5 runs. Vohra;s dismissal thus proved to be the turning point of the match.
