Travis Head on SRH’s 1-run triumph

After the game, Head said, “It’s a good win, it’s probably one that we didn’t expect at the end there. Cummins and Bhuvi showed their class at the end and got us a nice win. We’ve been playing well, we’ve had a couple of losses, nice for the energy.” He also hailed the all-rounder Nitish Reddy for his effortless knock.

“Nitish played out of his skin again. He’s had a couple of innings now where he’s stepped up, which made it look really easy. It was a tough pitch. I felt we had heaps but that’s T20 crickets, it comes down to the wire most times. Always nice to win in front of your home fans,” Head added.
