6, WD, 6, W, 6, 6, 6 . Abhishek slips out of Hyderabad’s hands, Stoinis-Pooran storm
The 58th match of the 16th IPL season was played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Lucknow Super Giants on Saturday (May 13). Lucknow won by 7 wickets in this match played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. Marcus Stoinis, Prerak Mankad and Nicholas Pooran were the match winners for Lucknow. On the other hand, spinner Abhishek Sharma cost a fortune for Hyderabad.
Abhishek Sharma spent 42 runs in three overs and took one wicket. Abhish had spent 11 runs in the first two overs of his quota. But in the third over he was washed away. Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis together sweated out their consecration. Abhishek spent as many as 31 runs in the 16th over of Lucknow’s innings. After Mark Stoinis hit a six off the first ball, Abhishek bowled the next ball wide. Then Abhishek played the second ball of the over for a six.
Although Stoinis was in terrific form this time, he played a mistimed shot off the third ball and was caught by Abdul Samad. Nicholas Pooran came in to bat after Stoinis’ wicket. Pooran hit three consecutive sixes in the innings on the pitch. For Abhishek Sharma, this over can be described as a nightmare.
