IPL 2020: Nicholas Pooran's solo effort goes in vain as Kings XI Punjab collapse to mighty Sunrisers Hyderabad

Nicholas Pooran was the lone fighter in an otherwise underwhelming display from KXIP batsmen, amassing 77 runs off just 37 balls (Five fours and seven sixes). He raced to the fastest fifty of IPL 2020, reaching the milestone in just 17 balls. However, lack of contributions from his partners proved costly for KXIP as they search for their first win since 24 September, when they beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 97 runs. Sportzpics

Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner and his opening batting partner Jonny Bairstow forged a 160-run stand for the opening stand in match 22 of IPL 2020 against Kings XI Punjab in Dubai on Thursday. Kings XI succumbed to their fifth loss of the tournament, as the Men in Orange completed a remarkable 69-run win. Sportzpics

KXIP had to agonisingly wait for 15 overs to get their first breakthrough in the game. Ravi Bishnoi struck in the first ball of the 16th over to remove Warner for 52. He was caught by Glenn Maxwell near the long-on position. Three balls later, he saw off Bairstow as well.  Sportzpics

Jonny Bairstow missed out on what would have been just his second IPL century. He was struck lbw by Bishnoi, and departed after scoring 97 runs. Nevertheless, SRH cruised to a huge total of 201-6. Sportzpics
