Excellent over by Rabada here as SRH get only four runs from the first over. Head is looking out of sorts for now. It is 4-0.

India squad soon

1st ball wicket?

Rabada comes with a jaffa here. Head misses, and there’s a appeal. But it’s been turned down.

180 enough?

Punjab would be looking to get at least 180 here. They seem to have the line up to reach there, but it remains to be seen as to how much they get.

What’s wrong with Umran?

Umran Malik would have been a huge asset for the SRH side had he been performing to his best. But then he has been rather ordinary this year and hasn’t bagged a wicket yet in the tournament.
