Gujarat Titans are hosting SunRisers Hyderabad at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The thrilling encounter between the two sides kicked off with an early breakthrough by SRH pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar as he sent Gujarat Titans’ opening batter Wriddhiman Saha packing.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar Dismissed Wriddhiman Saha With A Perfect Delivery
Wriddhiman Saha had to make an early exit to the pavilion after a dismissive shot. The crucial wicket of Saha set the tone right for an intense battle between both sides.
This wicket came off in the third delivery of the game when Bhuvneshwar bowled a precise delivery to Wriddhiman Saha. The ball was pitched back of a length outside off, tempting the veteran batter to play a shot away from his body. Saha could only manage to get a faint edge on the ball, which eventually resulted in a catching opportunity for SRH.
Before the wicket, Bhuvneshwar communicated well with the captain of SRH Aiden Markram, who suggested the addition of a second slip. This move turned out to be fruitful for the team as Saha’s loose shot resulted in his dismissal, which landed straight in the hands of Abhishek Sharma at second slip.
To take the perfect catch, Sharma moved swiftly toward his left and caught the ball. Saha went back to the pavilion without even opening his account.
