The panic button was already squeezed in the Sunrisers Hyderabad dugout when young Priyam Garg committed a howling error running out Kane Williamson with the Kiwi skipper bursting on to him.
Needless to say but the onus of toting his team from thereon fell on the young shoulders of the former Indian U-19 captain.
No one expected him to deliver the belter that was about to come with two youngsters at the crease and Sunrisers reeling at 69 for 4.
The duo carried on with the initial stabilization of the innings before bringing out the heavy artillery from their arsenal.
Priyam Garg led the charge as he hammered a few exquisite strokes in the middle that included a dynamic over against Sam Curran.
He took out the English all-rounder for more than 20 runs in his over that flipped the story of the game completely.
He is a highly-spoken youngster who has been doing some brilliant stuff for India U-19. However, before this game, he failed to live up to the billing strapped on to him.
He came out of his integument today that validated the brilliance that this youngster brings along with him. Twitter ensured that the heroics of this youngster never went unnoticed.
He managed to smash a breezy 51 runs from 26 balls that helped Sunrisers to post a respectable total of 164 on the board. Even Brian Lara, the legend of cricket heaped praises on this youngster.
