Chasing 171 runs total, SRH, too, had a bit of a headache time after they lost their top four wickets inside seven overs. Skipper Aiden Markram and Henrich Klassen did some repair work and things looked pretty shiny for SRH until the two aforementioned were batting. It seemed SRH would take away the win easily, however, the wicket of Henrich Klassen opened the opportunity for KKR.
Following the dismissal of Henrich Klassen, skipper Aiden Markram didn’t take too long to get dismissed. With the wicket of Markram, KKR just had to keep things tight and they exactly did that and won the game by 5 runs.
