The decision by Hyderabad skipper David Warner for the super over made it time for the team to lose the match, while Virender Sehwag expressed his displeasure.
Mumbai: In the match against Delhi, Hyderabad team tried their best but lost in the super over. Delhi won the match by 8 runs in the Super Over. The Hyderabad team had to accept the fourth defeat. The former cricketer has expressed outrage after the defeat and has taken a good spin from the Hyderabad captain.
The question posed by former cricketer Virender Sehwag on Warner’s spin is going viral on social media.
Virender Sehwag tweeted, ‘Was Johnny Bairstow in the toilet during the super over? I don’t understand why he was not initially selected by the Hyderabad team. He has scored 38 runs in 18 balls. Why didn’t Bairstow, known as the cleanest hitter, land in the super over for the first time. The Hyderabad team played very well but lost the match due to the last strange decision and has blamed itself for this strange decision.
In the first innings of the match, Delhi Capital lost 4 wickets for 129 runs and gave Hyderabad a target of 160 runs. Chasing this target, Hyderabad lost 7 wickets in 20 overs and scored 159 runs. So the match was tied and we had to play a super over.
In this super over, Delhi bowled Akshar Patel while Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant batted themselves. Ken Williamson and Warner from Hyderabad came on for the super over but Bairstow was not given a chance. Hyderabad, however, fell short in the super over. The Delhi Capitals won.
