Garg was involved in teammate Kane Williamson's run-out earlier in the innings. Williamson flicked the last ball of the 11th over to mid-wicket and took for a quick single, only to be left stranded mid-pitch by Garg who failed to respond. But the 19-year-old took the onus of scoring runs after Williamson's departure, and in the company of Abhishek Sharma, bailed Hyderabad out of choppy waters.

SRH finished on a competitive 164 for five, thanks largely to Garg who remained unbeaten. He struck six fours and a six during his innings. Garg was lapped up by Sunrisers for a whopping Rs 1.9 Crore.
