Gujarat Titans (GT) pacer Mohammed Shami continued to provide wickets in the powerplay as he dismissed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain and opener, Kane Williamson, with an impeccable delivery.
Williamson lost the toss for the first time this season and his team was asked to bat first. Shami began poorly, giving away ten wides in the first over due to lack of control.
He came back hard in the very next over, doing what he has done all season. Shami made use of the swing on offer and castled Williamson with a lovely delivery that had the Kiwi skipper beaten for pace as well.
It is the 7th wicket that Shami has taken in the powerplay this season, the most by a bowler from any team. SRH will once again have to depend on their middle-order which has been one of the best this season.
