SunRisers Hyderabad registered their third victory of the season with a narrow two-run victory against Punjab Kings. After posting a total of 182/9, thanks to incredible batting by debutant Nitish Reddy, SRH managed to restrict PBKS to 180/6. Ashutosh Sharma played a valiant knock of 46 off 25 balls while his batting partner Shashank Singh scored an unbeaten 33 off 15 balls.

Unadkat was smashed for a six by Ashutosh Sharma, thanks to Nitish Reddy's blunder of dropping a catch near the boundary line. SRH pacer conceded two wides in the next two deliveries before the ball was parried over the ropes after Abdul Samad mistimed the catch.

On the third and fourth delivery, Jaydev Unadkat gave away just two runs each, after which he conceded the third wide of his final over. On the fifth ball, Rahul Tripathi dropped an easy catch offered by Ashutosh at deep mid-wicket. With nine runs off 1 ball required to win, Shashank Singh smashed a six off Unadkat to hand over an SRH just two-win run.

Punjab Kings were at 154/6 in 19 overs and the carnage by Ashutosh Sharma and Shashank Singh took the visitors to 180/6 in 20 overs.
