Chris Gayle's hundred stops Sunrisers Hyderabad's winning run, propels Kings XI Punjab to 15-run victory [Photos]
Relive the best moments from the 16th match of Indian Premier League between Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Chris Gayle was the major difference between Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday as the 'Universe Boss' smashed an unbeaten 104 off just 63 balls which included 11 sixes and 1 four. Sportzpics
Shikhar Dhawan injured himself in only the first over of the match as a Barinder Sran delivery hit his left arm. Dhawan was in so much pain that he could not continue batting and was taken back to dressing room by the team physio. His injury meant Hyderabad was one man short and the fact that they lost by 15 runs in the end would hurt them more. Sportzpics
Kings XI Punjab bowlers were brilliant with the ball. Apart from Mohit Sharma who gave 51 runs in 4 overs and captain Ravichandran Ashwin who leaked 53 runs, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Barinder Sran, Andrew Tye pulled the match back for their team, bowling with an economy of less than 7. Sportzpics
Mujeeb Zadran was the best spinner in Thursday's clash. This is an achievement considering the fact that Rashid Khan was playing for Hyderabad as well. Mujeeb was superb, spilling only 27 runs and not letting the likes of Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson open their arms in the middle overs. Sportzpics
Sunrisers Hyderabad's Manish Pandey played well for his 42-ball 57 but this knock was far from his best. He could not hit the much-needed boundaries in the middle overs which could take his side to victory. Sportzpics
Rashid Khan was hit for four back to back sixes by Chris Gayle. He ended up with the figures of 55 for 1 in his quota of four overs, becoming the costliest bowler for Hyderabad. Clearly, he did not have a great day at office. Sportzpics
