Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers turned it on at the 'Ring of Fire' to restrict Kings XI Punjab to a low score in a crucial IPL game in Dubai on Saturday night.

Afghanistan leg spinner Rashid Khan picked up two wickets and West Indian all-rounder Jason Holder and Sandeep Sharma too ended up with two as Kings XI Punjab managed to muster 126 for seven at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner's decision to bowl paid dividends with the bowlers right on their game.

Few of the Kings XI Punjab batters got starts but couldn't carry it through in the face of some tight bowling by the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Only Nicholas Pooran came up with something substantial with the left-hander remaining unbeaten on 32 from 28 deliveries that had two boundaries.

Captain KL Rahul made a run-a-ball 27 that contained two fours and one six, while 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle too made a run-a-ball 20 with two boundaries and a six.

Rashid Khan took two for 14, while Holder returned with two for 27. Sharma had two for 29.

Brief scores:

Kings XI Punjab: 126-7 in 20 overs (Nicholas Pooran 32, KL Rahul 27, Chris Gayle 20, Rashid Khan 2-14, Jason Holder 2-27, Sandeep Sharma 2-29) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad.
