IPL 2021 – WATCH: Jagadeesha Suchith takes a blinker in one hand to push Deepak Hooda aside
There is no doubt that Sunrise Hyderabad (SRH) are experiencing their worst Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Considered one of the most consistent teams, SRH currently sits at the bottom of the points table with up to eight losses in nine games in the league’s current fourteenth season.
On Saturday, the Sunrisers showed positive points by regrouping their opponent Kings of Punjab (PBKS) for just 126. Still, the hitters put on a disappointing spectacle and failed to chase the paltry target, resulting in SRH’s eighth loss this year.
Despite a terrible outing, a moment drew up eyeballs, especially for SRH fans, when the substitute outfielder Jagadeesha Suchith grabbed a great grip to get rid of it Deepak hooda.
It all happened during the 16th on upset by Jason Holder. The Caribbean all-rounder threw a slower ball and Hooda hit it hard in anticipation of placing it for cover. But Suchith showed off his acrobatic moves as he flew to his left and reached out to pluck an absolute blinker.

Chasing 126, Sunrisers could only hit 120/7 in their allocated 20 overs, losing the contest by five points. The win puts the Kings in fifth place on the points table, a position above the defending champions Bombay Indians (MID).
After another defeat, Kane williamson congratulated the bowlers and the defensive unit for putting on a great show and congratulated Holder for his outstanding overall contribution to the game.
âThe bowling unit and the defensive unit did a fantastic job. Admittedly, the surface was hard. Partnerships necessary, and we certainly supported each other to get closer. It took a brilliant individual performance in both halves from Jason Holder, especially with the bat to keep the game competitive. It’s (SRH) a proud franchise, a frustrating season. Playing punches was difficult. For us, it was about trying to build platforms. It was quite a challenge to jump on them without losing counters â, Williamson said during the post-game presentation.
