Former India batsman Virender Sehwag has demanded the inclusion of New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson in the SRH playing XI after the team lost its second outing against RCB yesterday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
SRH has lost both the matches in the ongoing IPL 2021. SRH has lost their first match against KKR by 10 runs & then suffered a six runs loss in yesterday’s match against RCB. Taking to Twitter, Sehwag shared the picture of Kane Williamson & said, “Kiska hai ye tumko intezar mein hoon na”.
During the post-match Press Conference, SRH Head Coach Trevor Bayliss talked about Williamson fitness. Bayliss said, “Kane Williamson is out having a bit of a run now. He trained on one of the days- we had two days practice before this match & he practised on one of those days so he is coming along”.
Shedding some light on yesterday’s match. Warner’s half-century had put SRH on the road to victory but Shahbaz Ahmed ran through their middle order to help RCB register a thrilling six runs win against SRH. SRH were 115/2 before the 17th over. But Shahbaz Ahmed of RCB picked three wickets in the 17th over & turned the game in the favor of RCB. He took crucial wickets of Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey & Abdul Samad.
After the 17th over, SRH’s scored was just 116/5 & the team managed to reach 143/9 in 20 overs. SRH failed to chase the meagre target of 150 runs & lost to RCB by 6 runs.
