[WATCH] Pat Cummins’ Exceptional Direct Throw Dismisses Krunal Pandya

An outstanding throw by Pat Cummins halted Krunal Pandya’s impressive innings in the current match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Lucknow Super Giants at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. KL Rahul elected to bat first after winning the toss. Nevertheless, the batters from LSG couldn’t vindicate their captain’s choice in this pivotal encounter.

Quinton de Kock was dismissed for a mere 2 runs in the third over, courtesy of a remarkable catch by Nitish Reddy. In the fifth over, Sanvir Singh executed another outstanding display to grab Marcus Stoinis’ catch, dismissing him for just 3 runs, which reduced LSG to 21 for 2. Krunal Pandya was elevated to the number four position, injecting some much-needed momentum into the innings with a couple of sixes.

However, LSG encountered another setback in the tenth over when Pat Cummins removed Rahul. Then, in the 12th over, the SRH captain made an impressive play to dismiss the well-established Krunal Pandya. While facing T Natarajan’s delivery on the second ball of the over, Krunal Pandya aimed towards mid-off for a quick single.

But, before he could regain his position within the crease, Pat Cummins swiftly retrieved the ball and targeted the stumps accurately to dismiss Pandya. The versatile LSG player departed after scoring 24 runs off 21 balls, including two sixes.

Pandya’s exit brought LSG down to 66 for 4 in the 12th over. At the time of this report, LSG stands at 127 for 4 in the 18th over, with Nicholas Pooran and Ayush Badoni at the crease. Both SRH and LSG are eager to bounce back to winning form following their recent losses.

LSG faced a devastating 98-run loss to Kolkata Knight Riders in their last match, getting dismissed for 137 while pursuing 236. Conversely, SRH endured a seven-wicket defeat against Mumbai Indians.

SRH have caused significant harm to LSG through their flawless fielding efforts

SRH immediately showcased their fielding prowess in the current match. Initially, Nitish Kumar Reddy executed a remarkable catch near the boundary to dismiss Quinton de Kock. Following that, Sanvir Singh pulled off an outstanding catch at mid-on to remove Marcus Stoinis during the powerplay.

These moments of excellence significantly influenced the flow of the game, particularly on a sluggish pitch where each run holds immense importance. Alongside his direct hit, Cummins also claimed KL Rahul’s wicket in the second over of his bowling spell.
