His decision didn’t go well with the team as SRH opener Vivrant Sharma and Mayank Agarwal added 140 runs for the first wicket. Sharma, in his innings, scored 69 runs off 47 balls with the help of nine boundaries and two sixes.
On the other hand, Mayank Agarwal, in his innings, scored 83 runs off 46 balls with the help of eight boundaries and four sixes.
