WATCH: How Bhuvneshwar Kumar sent Hashim Amla packing on first ball of innings
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the purple cap holder of IPL 2017 as present.
New Delhi: After Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner led the team to a total of 159/6 by the end of innings against Kings XI Punjab, Purple cap holder Bhuvneshwar Kumar started the hosts' attack with the ball and removed danger-man Hashim Amla on very first ball.

SRH skipper Warner added 60 valuable runs with Naman Ojha (34), giving the innings some momentum after a slow start, which saw the home side score only 25 runs in the first five overs.
This was Warner's 34th fifty, the most by any batsman in the tournament, and his fifth straight against Kings XI Punjab.
Opting to field, Kings XI Punjab bowlers were disciplined in their approach on a pitch where shot-making was not the easiest thing in the world. Warner, however, was equal to the task on a day when Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi made his IPL debut.
Warner got to his half century off 45 balls when he tucked one past the keeper for a boundary in the innings' 17th over.
