Kane Williamson’s brilliant innings almost took the game away from CSK, as the classy Kiwi played a superb innings to almost take his team home.
Williamson matched Rayudu’s superb knock in the afternoon, as the SRH skipper held fort when everyone else seemed to fail around him. Eventually he got support from Yusuf Pathan, as the big hitting all-rounder finally came big in IPL 2018.
In the end, Rashid Khan hit some lusty blows in the final over, as the young leggie smashed Dwayne Bravo for two sixes and a four to keep the match interesting.
But eventually, it was too much for SRH, as they fell short by four runs.
Here are the best Twitter reactions!
4 runs that could have been made off a free hit had it been called, these decisions can be crucial in a game why are we not taking the time to make sure the right call is made?
