I’m tired of finishing second in Super Overs: Kane Williamson

Whether in the World Cup or IPL, Kane Williamson “is starting to get tired” of finishing second in Super Overs.

The New Zealander’s last Super Over meeting came on Sunday night when his side Sunrisers Hyderabad failed to deliver the desired result in their IPL match against Delhi Capitals.

“I’m tired of finishing second in the Super Overs,” Williamson said at the post-game press conference.

“Throughout the game, whenever there’s a Super Over, as a batting team chasing a very competitive score, there’s a lot of positives to take away from it.

“It’s really weird in the game of cricket that things can end in a tie, but I guess it’s very, very exciting. Many positive points, we pass very quickly in Delhi “, he added.

Williamson has been a part of a few Super Overs, the most famous being the 2019 World Cup final, which England won under the countdown rule.

Against DC here, SRH tied their opponents’ 159, but the duo of Williamson and David Warner could only achieve seven points in the Super Over that followed, which was not enough for the victory.

In the regulation game, Williamson hit 66 unbeaten on 51 balls.

“It’s a game with very small margins and I think if we’re being honest we just want to improve the different aspects of our game a little bit. This game, if you’re able to do that, then the outcome may change. fast enough.

“I guess when it ends in a tie you can look at the single point all the way through the innings. I think overall a lot of positives.

Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant scored 53 and 37 respectively to help the Delhi Capitals set SRH a tough target on tough Chepauk terrain.

However, with the exception of Jonny Bairstow’s top 38, Williamson got no support from the other end until Jagadeesha Suchith came in and smashed a six-ball 14 to help tie the game. .

Williamson said: “It was good to be there at the end, it would have been a lot nicer if I had been there at the end and we were on the safe side of the result.

“You know there were a lot of valuable partnerships going up the heats and we just lacked a bit of momentum because that was the nature of the surface.

“We have become very close, positive points to build on. We do not know how the surfaces will be in Delhi. “

SunRisers Hyderabad is currently seventh in the table with 2 points from 5 matches.

SRH will face the Chennai Super Kings on Wednesday in Delhi.
