Player of the Match
J Bairstow was declared man of the match for his stupendous innings of 97 off 55 balls.
KL Rahul: KL Rahul and the team have their players in the list of top run-scorers as well as wicket-takers yet his team is the team which has lost maximum matches. Why? there could be many reasons, one reason for sure is that Rahul and team have not performed as a whole unit. Another could be that despite continuous failure they are hesitant about shaking the batting order. Why not bring in someone like Gayle into the picture. They are already losing their matches what worst can happen?
D Warner: He must be one happy captain, he and his partner Bairstow got off to a flyer and ever since it was all one-way traffic for them. He is one captain who doesn't fear experimenting like promoting Samad to bat at number 3. Or removing M Nabi to bring in Williamson irrespective of Nabi playing better or not.
In the end, SRH totally dominated the match. Their openers were brilliant while their bowlers were good as well.
