DY Patil Stadium last match
In the last match on this ground, Sunrisers Hyderabad beat the Punjab Kings by seven wickets. SRH captain Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to bowl first. The decision worked in SRH’s favor as a four-wicket haul from Umran Malik helped them bowl their opponents out for 151 runs.
A total of 13 wickets fell in that match, with pacers accounting for nine of them. The DY Patil Stadium boundary length was hard to clear for the batters as only 11 sixes were smashed in 38.5 overs. Fans should expect an equal contest between the bat and the ball when LSG take on RCB tomorrow.
