Williamson, however, praised the bowling and fielding unit. He said, “I think the bowlers and the fielders did a great job. The pitch was difficult to bat on. We were trying to get closer to winning the match. Great effort by Jason Holder. This session was very disappointing. We should have learned some lessons from the first half.
Sunrisers Hyderabad team is now out of the race for playoffs. Kane Williamson further said, “This session proved to be very bad for us. We need to work on many things. In the remaining matches, we will try to learn from our defeat.
Changes can happen in the team
Williamson talked about the challenge of T20. He said, “Punjab Kings attacked strongly. This happens in T20. This pitch was very difficult. It was not possible to play big shots on it. It was not easy to go ahead without losing a wicket. We needed to play smart cricket.
Let us tell you that this was the eighth defeat of Sunrisers Hyderabad in 9 matches. The Sunrisers Hyderabad team removed David Warner from the captaincy in the mid-season itself. Since Hyderabad is out of the race for the playoffs, there may be many changes in the team in the remaining matches.
