Opting to bat first, the SRH could only muster a total of 113 runs before being all out in the 19th over. KKR then confidently chased down the target in just the 11th over. Australian pacer Mitchell Starc‘s exceptional bowling prowess earned him the Player of the Match award. After the match, the KKR wicket-keeper batter Phil Salt joined the team celebration.
