Shubhman Gill against Sunrisers Hyderabad

"In the match against KKR, I and Jonny got ourselves in and we backed ourselves to play the way we wanted to play, unfortunately through the middle, we could have gone probably a little harder, we could have taken few more risks".

Opting to bat first, Sunrisers Hyderabad scored 142 for four with Manish Pandey making a 38-ball 51 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

"I didn't have to tell Gill a great deal to be honest, attractive to watch", Morgan, England's limited-overs captain, said of his 21-year-old batting partner who was named man of the match.

"I think as an opener, it's very important to stay there and it's your duty to see the team through", he said.

Rajasthan Royals had defeated CSK by 16 runs in their opening fixture of the IPL 2020 and now the side would look to carry their winning momentum.

Gill's unbeaten 92-run stand with England's World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan helped KKR survive a short scare while they chased down SRH's meager total of 142/4. "We bowled really and we had to back it up with a good performance", Gill rightly credited team's bowlers for setting up the win. There were not any long conversations with Morgan. He also got the danger-man Bairstow (5) cheaply. "An extra 30 or 40 runs would have been great", said Warner in the post-match presentation.

Koeman shifts blame to Barcelona chiefs for Suarez exit following Messi dig
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman insists there shouldn't be surprise with Lionel Messi's outburst last week. The Barca captain accused the club of being disrespectful with the way they forced him out.


Having drawn flak for bowling short against Mumbai Indians, the IPL's most-expensive overseas buy returned tidy figures of 1/19, while spinner Varun Chakravarthy (1/25) outfoxed the risky David Warner to derail SRH early on. At the same time Nitish Rana (26) was out in the fifth and captain Dinesh Karthik (0) was dismissed in the seventh over. "We just mis-executed in the middle", added Warner.

Mohammad Nabi replaced the injured Mitchell Marsh, while Wriddhiman Saha and Khaleel Ahmed came in for Vijay Shankar and Sandeep Sharma respectively, in the SRH line-up.

Similarly, the very consistent and attacking opening pair of Warner and Bairstow didn't deliver too on Saturday. "They put them on the back-foot and we knew we didn't have to put ourselves under pressure in the chase", Morgan told host broadcaster Star Sports after the match.
