Sunrisers Hyderabad continued their good habit of stealing victory from the jaws of defeat as they defended a low total once again to register a 13-run win over Kings XI Punjab in Hyderabad on Thursday. Rashid Khan picked 3/19 and Sandeep Sharma picked 2/17 as KXIP were dismissed for 119, chasing 133 to win. KXIP had started the chase well after in-form openers KL Rahul and Chris Gayle put on a 55-run stand for the 1st wicket. None of the other Kings XI batsmen scored in double figures, till no.11 Mujeeb scored a couple of boundaries and remained unbeaten on 10. Earlier, it was a brilliant effort from young Ankit Rajpoot who picked career-best figures of 5/14 to reduce Sunrisers to 132 in their 20 overs.
