I enjoyed a lot: Priyam Garg on opening the innings for Sunrisers Hyderabad
Priyam Garg replaced Shashank Singh in the Sunrisers Hyderabad playing XI against the Mumbai Indians. The youngster did not get a single opportunity in this season, before this game. He was given a chance to open the innings, and made the most of it.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad batter scored 42 runs off 26 balls at a strike rate of 161.54. Reflecting on his innings, during the mid-innings break, Garg expressed that the enjoyed his time out in the middle. He also opined that with the bowling attack that they have, 194 is a good target.
“I enjoyed it a lot. I was practicing to open because the franchise told me I would play as an opener this year. The new ball was moving a bit, but the old ball was coming on nicely. I think it is a good total, but we are around 10-15 runs short given where we were at one stage. But with our bowling attack, we have a good score,” said Priyam Garg.
