Got to get your chin up when T20 throws some curveballs at you: Williamson

Williamson feels that it was one odd game for them and they need to stand up in situations like these to face the challenges ahead

Sunrisers Hyderabad got off the worst start possible in their opening encounter of the season, being reduced to 37/5 in 10 overs after conceding a mammoth total of 210 runs to Rajasthan Royals. Prasidh Krishna, who had an ER of 9.58 in his IPL career before this game, conceded just two runs in his first three overs and SRH could never really recover from that. Kane Williamson, the SRH skipper, feels that it was one odd game for them and they need to stand up in situations like these to face the challenges ahead.

"I think we started beautifully with the ball. We've seen in all games there's swing and assistance with the new ball - you have to try and make some inroads. We looked likely, but some fine margins. It was a good surface and they are a difficult team to stop. For us, we need to look at it logically and there are a number of things to improve on. That said, T20 throws some curveballs at you, got to get your chin up," Williamson said in the post-match interview.

"We've got to side down, we've had a few days before the next game. We know the nature of T20 can be fickle. We were put under pressure in the first innings' second half, and for us as a young team, we need to be nice and clear on what we want to execute. We want to learn. With the bat, it was tough - the ball moved. We threw some punches at the back end, and Rajasthan did that beautifully too."

Sunrisers Hyderabad dismissed Jos Buttler on a no-ball and that cost them big-time with the Royals plotting their way back to put up a massive total on board. Williamson said it was not something they couldn't control but surely something they would want to avoid for the next games.

"It's not something common to us as a side. It was a surprise. We certainly don't want to be doing that. It represents extra deliveries and when you take a wicket off it, its never nice. A number of things you can't control," the skipper concluded.
