Garg didn’t face too many balls as Rahul Tripathi went berserk at the other end. SRH hit seven fours and two sixes as they raced to 57-1 at the end of their powerplay. The two put together a 78-run partnership off just 43 balls. He took on Mayank Markande in the ninth over, hitting two fours in what turned into a 12-run over. Rammandeep Singh was the one who claimed his wicket, with a stopping ball that had Garg into the shot early. He ended up spooning it back to the bowler.

Priyam Garg returned to the side after a long gap, especially considering he featured in only five matches in 2021. This move has come after a painful run of form for Williamson, who averages 18 with 208 runs from 12 matches this season at a strikerate of 92.

SRH fans on Twitter were appreciative of Priyam Garg making the most of his opportunity.
