With three wins in three matches under their belt, SRH are sitting at the helm of the points table with six points. Bhuvneshwar returned to the Sunrisers line-up in place of Sandeep Sharma, who had replaced him in the last game.

Colon signed a minor-league contract with Texas in February after finishing with a 7-14 record and 6.48 ERA between the Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins past year. Reddick then lined an 0-2 delivery down the right-field line, putting runners at second and third and prompting a standing ovation from opposing fans in Houston. In the eighth, Colon walked Astros slugger Carlos Correa on five pitches before allowing a sharp double to Josh Reddick to break up the no-hit bid.

Correa ended up coming around to score to tie the game at 1-1, and Colon left after 7⅔ innings and 96 pitches while lowering his ERA on the season to 1.45.
