Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batsman Priyam Garg has revealed that teammate Kane Williamson told him not worry about the runout. During the match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League, they were involved in a misunderstanding that led to Williamson getting run-out.

Williamson looked furious when he was dismissed. Garg, despite being under tremendous pressure, continued batting and scored an explosive half-century. His knock proved to be crucial as SRH defeated CSK by 7 runs. The 19-year-old Garg was awarded Man of the Match for his performance.

Speaking after the match, Garg admitted that he felt really bad when Williamson got out. He also revealed what Williamson said to him when he returned to the dug-out after his half-century. “It felt really bad when he got run-out. He was a set batsman. That he was run-out was a mistake, but everything went alright after that. When I went back to the dug out, he said to me ‘Don’t worry mate, forget about it. You’ve batted really well.'”

Garg also talked about his match-winning partnership with Abhishek Sharma saying, “I had no pressure when Abhishek came in to bat, because we know each other and our strengths. We both gelled well together and enjoyed each others’ batting. I felt really good about scoring my first IPL fifty.”

Following the win against CSK, SRH find themselves at 4th place in the points table. They next face Mumbai Indians at Sharjah on Sunday.
