It was home team’s captain Rohit Sharma who won the toss and opted to field first. However, it all went wrong for them as Sunrisers Hyderabad got off to a blistering start, thanks to a brilliant batting display from Priyam Garg.
But, after the youngster was dismissed, from there on, Rahul Tripathi took control of the inning and went on to score a brilliant 76 runs from 44 balls, that included 9 fours and 3 sixes at a strike rate of 172.
After his tonight, fans on Twitter are demanding that Tripathi be given a run in the Indian team and should be selected for the upcoming South Africa T20I series to be played in June.
