Punjab started well in their pursuit as Johnny Birstow set the tone early With Rapid Fire 23 shoot 15 balls.

In the end, the PBKS chased a 158-run target in just 15.1 times and finished their campaign at the highest level. The defeat of the SRH can be mainly attributed to their dismal participation as Livingston was brought down twice by Washington Sundar.
From dropped catches to sloppy field strikes, Hyderabad’s players have left bowlers and fans with their regular efforts. After the match, Hyderabad fans criticized and mocked the team’s poor engagement on social media.
Twitter user Anurag Sharma tweeted, “Zero Mark’s for field efforts in SRH. Miss 2 Misfield costing 6 extra Runs is running out.”

Hema Bhandari tweeted, “Involving them on the field is one of the main reasons SRH failed to qualify this year.. they give 15-20 points to the opposing team because of their weakness on the field.. and it costs them the match.”
