It was all down to a few good deliveries, said Sunrisers Hyderabad assistant coach Simon Helmot as he tried to explain his team’s poor batting performance in the final against Kolkata Knight Riders, conceding that the plan to be aggressive fell flat quite early in the match.

SRH were hammered by eight wickets after putting just 113 runs on the board. KKR overhauled the target in just over 10 overs to claim their third IPL trophy on Sunday night. “We were not going to change our brand or approach. We wanted to be aggressive, but also smart and work the situations through,” Helmot said in the post-match press conference.

“Our plan certainly wasn’t to get bowled out for 113 in the 18th over. We played in a really positive way, but a few good deliveries [from KKR bowlers] early on put us on the back foot. Unfortunately, it was one of those days,” he added. Batting first, the SRH top-order failed to get going, with the three batters getting dismissed for single figures. Big-hitting opener Travis Head fell for his third duck in four matches, dismissed by left-arm pacer Vaibhav Arora.
