IPL 2017: KXIP vs SRH - Star of the Match - Kane Williamson

Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner put the Sunrisers Hyderabad onto a great start at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Friday. In fact, they put on 107 runs for the opening wicket in just 10 overs. But the man who hit the final nail in the coffin was Kane Williamson.

Coming in to bat with SRH scoring at 10.27 runs per over, Williamson took his time in the initial stages, scoring singles off the first six balls. In fact, it was the 10th ball he faced that he hit for a massive six of Axar Patel to break the shackles. And there was no looking back after that.

Teams have often lost the plot even after the openers have put the team off to a good start. But Williamson ensured that he held the innings together even after Dhawan was dismissed in the 15th over. In fact, Yuvraj too perished in his attempt to score quick runs as Glenn Maxwell had him caught by Axar for 15.

But Williamson held fort and helped Hyderabad finish with 31 runs off the last two overs as 200 looked a difficult target as SRH were placed at 176/3 after 18 overs. Williamson himself hit 20 off Ishant Sharma’s 19th over before picking 7 runs in the last over to not only pick his second fifty of the season, but also help SRH cross the 200-run mark.
