After the match against Lucknow Super Giants, Sunrisers Hyderabad opener Abhishek Sharma revealed that he made a mistake in booking his parent’s flight, which led them to miss his heroic knock against the KL Rahul-led side. Notably, right after the completion of the match at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, Sharma was spotted talking on the phone, but it was unclear who was at the other end.

Revealing that later in the day, the youngster mentioned that he was talking to his parents as he mistakenly booked them a flight to Amritsar instead of Hyderabad, the venue for the encounter. The 23-year-old revealed that his parents were supposed to come to Hyderabad to see him play against LSG, but due to his mistake, that couldn’t happen.

“I was talking to my mom-dad. They were scheduled to come for this match, but unfortunately, I booked them a flight for home (from another location). I had to book (air tickets) for Hyderabad, but I booked for Amritsar,” the Punjab-born said to JioCinema, a video that later went viral on social media.

Meanwhile, in the match against LSG, Sharma wreaked havoc as SRH won the match by 10 wickets. Chasing 166 runs, he along with opening partner Travis Head hit boundaries for fun and chased the total down in just 9.4 overs. Sharma smashed 75* runs off 28 balls, while Head hit 89* runs off 30 deliveries as SRH picked up one of the biggest wins in IPL history.

With the massive win, Hyderabad strengthened their position in the playoffs race, which has now become intense. Courtesy of winning seven out of 12 matches so far, the Pat Cummins-led side are currently third on the points table. If the franchise wins its remaining matches, that is against Gujarat Titans and Punjab Kings, they will qualify for the playoffs, else they might have to depend on the results of other teams. Meanwhile, Chennai, Delhi, Lucknow are fourth, fifth and sixth respectively and all of them have 12 points each.
