In went Manan Vohra and Hashim Amla to begin Punjab’s chase. Amla fell ball, but Vohra used the fort. The 23-year-old from Chandigarh got his time to deflect Warner’s bowling armory’s onslaught, but after ten overs with Punjab at 62/5, he arrived around the gas. Vohra appeared unaffected and toyed with all the Sunrisers episode, but because the expected run rate leaped he kept dropping associates at the other end.
To 18 needed off the last three overs, the picture nonetheless was brought along ultimately. And then 16 off the last two. Lastly, Kumar hit again to lure, and Manan was hitting on 95 him lbw.
Manan had got his group right to the final point, but at 145, he’d to walk back to the dugout. The 95 off his bat, spread with nine limitations and five sixes, was Manan’s greatest T20 rating, but the dissatisfaction on his face was apparent. The task had not be done.
Having recognized his vital wicket though, Sunrisers skipper David Warner and congratulated him and Indian stalwart Yuvraj Singh both went up to the young cricketer.
Leaders XI Punjab lost the match by five runs with Bhuvneshwar Kumar being named the person of the fit. However, Punjab skipper Glenn Maxwell was all encouragement for Manan in the post game service.
