It was a very frustrating over for the South African pacer and it was very evident in the SRH dug-out as Sri Lanka legend and their team’s spin-bowling and strategic coach, Muttiah Muralitharan got up from his seat and vented out his frustration on the dismal final over. The fans have never seen Muralitharan in such a state before and this is a testament of how the game at times gets the better of you.

Batting first, Sunrisers Hyderabad put up a strong total of 195 thanks to Abhishek Sharma and Aiden Markram’s half-centuries. In reply, Gujarat had to face the wrath of Umran Malik who picked up 5 wickets in the match.
