We were 25-30 runs short with the bat: SRH skipper Kane Williamson

The Sunrisers skipper further admitted that IPL 2021 has been a tough campaign for his side

Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson, whose side slipped to a fourth consecutive defeat in IPL 2021, admitted that the batters left a lot of runs behind, and claimed that his side were at least 25-30 runs short of a par total. 

Winning the toss and batting first, SRH lost Warner on the third ball of the game, post which they never recovered. As many as five batters passed the 15-run mark, but none were able to convert the start into a big total as they posted just 134 off their 20 overs. 

The target was chased down with ease by Delhi Capitals, who finished the game with 13 balls to spare.

"Didn't get off to the start we would have liked. Some good fighting with the bat at the end; some 25 or 30 short in the end,” Williamson said in the aftermath of the defeat.

“They are an outstanding side, and have a great balance. They put us under pressure, and that is what you expcet. Things started to unfold for us... It wasn't to be today. Delhi were fantastic... For us, it is focusing on our cricket and trying to improve."

The defeat today was the Sunrisers’ seventh loss of the season, and with a mere two points in eight matches, their season is all but over. Williamson admitted that IPL 2021 has been a ‘tough campaign’ for his side, but hoped for the players to keep their heads high and put in a shift in the final six games of the season.

“Bit of a shame, but at the same time, important we keep the attitude the boys showed last time... Been a tough campaign so far. At our bets, we can beat anybody.”

SRH now have a two-day break, after which they will take on seventh-placed Punjab Kings in Sharjah on Saturday, September 25.
