Twice in two games, the chasing teams tried to make a mess of an easy equation in Mohali with Kings XI Punjab being the batting team this time against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Delhi Capitals surrendered to KXIP when they needed 23 from 21 balls with seven wickets in hand a few days ago. It was the Kings XI’s turn as they scored only 8 runs and lost 3 wickets across 18th and 19th over when they needed 19 from 18 balls. However, a calm-composed KL Rahul with an unbeaten 53-ball 71 and Sam Curran chased down 11 runs in the final over bowled by Mohammad Nabi.

Lesser known stats and numbers recorded during a clinical effort in the win by Kings XI Punjab:

A special record with Warner on top:

With the unbeaten 70-run knock, David Warner extended his fifty scoring streak in the IPL against the Kings XI Punjab to seven innings. Warner has scored a fifty in all the four innings he batted in the IPL in Mohali thus far. The seven consecutive fifties against KXIP put Warner on top in the list of players with most consecutive 50+ scores against an opponent. Warner is already on top with seven in a row against the RCB team between 2014 and 2017. No other players have more than four in a succession against a team.


Bringing Rashid early on:

Not often Rashid Khan has bowled before the 4th over of an innings in the IPL thus far. Rashid was brought in for the 4th over of this game and dismissed Chris Gayle on the first ball. He bowled the 3rd over of the KKR innings during the 2017 Eliminator where the innings was restricted to six overs due to rain. Earlier this season, Rashid was brought in the 4th over against Rajasthan Royals to bowl at Jos Buttler. The leg-spinner cleaned up the in-form batsman on the 2nd ball he bowled.

Warner’s slowest:

Kings XI managed to restrict David Warner as the Australian reached his half-century from 49 balls. This is easily his slowest IPL fifty ever as the previous slowest came in 45 balls also against KXIP in the 2017 season. Overall, the 49-ball fifty by Warner is now the slowest fifty scored by any player for the Sunrisers Hyderabad ever in the IPL. Shikhar Dhawan against the Rising Pune Supergiant in the 2016 season and Manish Pandey also against the Kings XI in 2018 brought up their fifties from 48 balls.

The unbeaten 70 by Warner is also the 3rd lowest score by an individual ever in an IPL inning of 60+ balls. Back in 2009, JP Duminy scored only 59 from 63 balls for the Mumbai Indians also against the Kings XI. During that inning, Duminy registered the slowest IPL fifty off 55 balls. SRH’s Aaron Finch during the 2014 edition scored only 68 runs from the 62 balls he faced in the home game against Mumbai Indians. All these three scores came on losing causes.
