Shahbaz Ahmed goes past Aiden Markram’s reverse sweep

Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klassen undertook the rebuilding job Michael Bracewell has jolted Sunrisers Hyderabad twice in the PowerPlay, their partnership approaching fifty at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. While the South African keeper-bat went on to score a brilliant 104 off 51 balls, Markram was cleaned up by Shahbaz Ahmed.

Mohammad Siraj was outstanding again with the ball. He finished with 1 for 17 in his four overs, but SRH’s innings was all about one man – Heinrich Klaasen. From his first ball – when he punched a back of a length delivery through the cover region, he looked head and shoulders above the rest in this lineup which has failed to click in unison.

Shahbaz and Karn Sharma were taken apart by the ginger-bearded Protean and Faf du Plessis did not go to Bracewell despite the off-spinner taking 2 wickets in his first over. Riding on Klassen’s quickfire ton, Sunrisers Hyderabad have posted a formidable 186/5.
