‘Don’t think anyone plays better spin’: Abhishek Sharma praises Travis on runs blitzkrieg against LSG

Hyderabad (Telangana) (India), May 9: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batsman Abhishek Sharma praised his opening partner Travis Head for playing spin like no other.

On Wednesday, the Hyderabad-based franchise registered a huge 10-wicket win over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium as Head scored 89 runs from 30 balls. Abhishek played a 75-run knock from 28 balls.

Speaking on JioCinema, Abhishek recalled how Head played shots against LSG spinner Krishnappa Gowtham and said not all batters can do that.

“I don’t think anyone plays better spin than Travis. The shots he hit off K Gowtham, normally batters can’t do that, that shows how special he is. He’s very clear, when I talk to him, the way he compliments I have always been a big fan of him over the past year. I followed him as our understanding was established and our cooperation improved, we became good friends off the field and started spending more time,” said Abhishek. .

Talking about his performance, the 23-year-old opener said that he started this attacking approach from the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

“I think this approach is something I adopted during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. I feel that when I play this way, look at the ball and react, my shots come out better and the bowler takes pressure off .I always thought that if I play in the IPL, I will try to maintain this. Our support staff and Pat (Cummins), the way they think, I have never seen anyone else think like that. “Go out and express yourself. Play as aggressively as you can, we will support you.” I think that matters a lot,” he added.

To sum up the match, LSG opted to bat first after winning the toss. The visitors got off to a slow start, managing just 57 runs in the first 10 overs and losing three wickets. Skipper KL Rahul played a slow knock of just 29 runs.

In the second half of the innings, Ayush Badoni (55*) and Nicholas Pooran (48*) turned things around with a 99-run stand, leaving LSG with a score of 165/4.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/12) was the best bowler for LSG. Pat Cummins also got a wicket.

Chasing 166 runs, openers Travis Head (89*) and Abhishek Sharma (75*) launched what seemed like a never-ending attack on LSG ballers, helping SRH chase down the total in just 9.4 overs without losing a wicket.

SRH is at number three in the rankings with seven wins, five losses and 14 points. LSG is in sixth place with six wins, six losses and 12 points.
