Indian Premier League’s eleventh season started with a bang. Last night the match was played in between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders. Sunrisers Hyderabad won the match last night beating Kolkata Knight Riders after a nail biting ending.
Before the match, Kane Williamsons, the skipper of SRH won the toss and choose to bowl first. The match was held at the very famous Eden Gardens of Kolkata where Kolkata Knight Riders lost the match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad showed some great bowling skills by not letting the players of KKR stay at the ground for so long. Apart from this their brilliant fielding took our hearts away and they won the match by sending the top players like Andre Russell back to the pavillion without scoring much.
Among all the players, Chris Lynn was the only one to score the highest runs. He scored 49 runs in 34 balls with the strike rate of 144. He smashed 7 fours and 1 six.
Shakib Al Hasan sent back Chris Lynn after he tried to hit another shot but he dived in between and caught the ball and Chris was declared ‘out’.
The video of that stunning dive has been making rounds on the internet, people have been sharing the stunning catch on social media. In case you missed that wonderful catch, here, have a look at the video:
