Punjab kings achieved an exciting victory in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 when they successfully defended 125 runs against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Sunday. After the victory, Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul was full of praise for his versatile Harpreet Brar and said the youngster ‘can do anything’. KL Rahul also reveals the approach of Harpreet Brar every time he is asked to bowl. “He (Harpreet) was good to us, he can do anything. He has finished a few games for us, also gives us control with the ball and is excellent on the field,” KL Rahul said during the post-match presentation.
“Every time I go to him, he tells me ‘Paaji (brother) do not worry, I will not lick runs’. That is his attitude,” he added.
In the match, Harpreet played a crucial 18-run shot from 18 deliveries to help the Punjab Kings put up a total of 125 for seven from their 20 overs.
Looking for 126 for the win, SRH struggled to get going as they both lost their stars abroad David Warner (2) and Kane Williamson (1) cheaply.
With the ball, Harpreet kept things tight in the middle overs and sent off his four overs at an economy of 6.2 runs per innings.
SRH eventually fell five runs below the target despite the late flourishing of Jason Holder, who played an unbeaten run of 47.
After improving SRH in Sharjah, Punjab Kings moved up to fifth place on the points ladder.
They take on the Mumbai Indians in Dubai on Tuesday.
