commentary

So that is it from this game! Hyderabad have won their first game this season, whereas, Rajasthan are still to taste victory. Indian T20 League action continues though and there are two games lined-up for you tomorrow. First it will be Punjab taking on Mumbai in the former's den, followed by Delhi hosting Kolkata. The first game begins at 1600 local (1030 GMT). The second at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!

Man of the Match, Rashid Khan, says he always tries to give his best and luckily for him it comes off. Admits it was a plan to bring him against Buttler. States the wicket was not easy to bowl but he tried to hit the right lengths and it came off well. Mentions variation was important and he bowled 5 different leg spinners with 5 different actions. Ends by saying he is working on his batting and he has the self belief to do well with the bat.

Hyderabad skipper, Kane Williamson, says it was not easy. Credits the way Rajasthan played. States it was a brilliant chase and appreciates the effort from the openers. He hopes they can continue performing like they did tonight. Admits it was a plan giving Rashid the ball against Buttler as they wanted to get him early. Further adds he is pleased it worked. Appreciates Rashid's effort with the bat as well. Ends by saying his team showed great character to bounce back after a defeat in the first game.

David Warner is up for a chat now. He says that the fans in Hyderabad always inspire him and credits Sanju Samson for his innings. Feels that Samson showed them how to bat. Reckons it was good to bat with Jonny Bairstow but there were some hiccups in the partnership. Reckons they know the ground well and they just played according to the merit of the delivery. Says the wicket looks outstanding and he is all ready for the next game.

Rajasthan skipper, Ajinkya Rahane, feels that 190+ was a good score on this pitch. Further adds he was aiming for something around 150 while batting with Sanju Samson. Credits Hyderabad for the way they batted. Says the margin of error is very less when a batter like Warner plays well. Mentions Sanju Samson is a talented player and the team always knew it. But also admits that the team is unhappy as his brilliant century went in vain.

Earlier in the day, Rajasthan justified their captain's choice of batting first courtesy a brilliant ton from Samson and a lovely half ton from Rahane. Their partnership helped the visitors give the hosts a target of 199. That though was not enough as contributions from quite a few Hyderabad batsmen helped them record their highest ever chase in the Indian T20 League.

The Rajasthan bowlers were poor to begin with. They were either too straight or very wide. Their bowlers were taken to the cleaners. Gopal was the only bright spot and it was because of him, the game went down till the 19th over. He had excellent figures of 4-0-27-3. Had he gotten support from the rest, it could have been a different story.

How easy was that? Hyderabad have chased this huge total with 6 balls to spare. Yes, there were a few hiccups but to be honest, they were always in control of the game. The foundation was laid by their openers who smashed and when I write smashed, I mean smashed 110 runs. It was actually Warner who got things going. He came out all guns blazing and went after each and every bowler. He blasted his way to 69 and when he was dismissed, Hyderabad were well in control. After his wicket, Bairstow then took over and took the attack to the bowlers. He however, was dismissed to an excellent catch. Another handy stand though between Shankar and Williamson more or less sealed the deal for the hosts. There was a little drama in the middle but Yusuf Pathan and Rashid Khan ensured they take their team over the line.

J Archer to R Khan, SIX! Rashid finishes it off in style! What a whip that was. He shuffles across and Archer bowls it full on the pads. Khan flicks it over the square leg fence for a biggie. The crowd here are going bonkers as HYDERABAD WIN BY 5 WICKETS!

J Unadkat to Y Pathan, In the air... falls in no man's land! Luck favoring Pathan here. The cutter on off, Pathan looks to go against the angle but it is right off the bottom part of the bat. It goes uppishly towards mid on. The fielder at long on runs in but does not get to it. Two taken.

J Archer to R Khan, WIDE! Good take by Buttler. That could have easily been five wides. Short, very short actually. Goes above the head of the batsman. Buttler does well to leap and collect it.

S Gopal to R Khan, No hat-trick! Rashid plays it well as he works it through mid-wicket for a single.

Rashid Khan is the new man in and he will face the hat-trick ball.

15.4

S Gopal to M Pandey, OUT! Two-in-two and Gopal gets his third. He is keeping the visitors in the game. The googly once again does the trick. It pitches on off, Pandey does not pick it. He looks to push it through covers once again but the ball turns in. Hits his pads first and then the bat. The players appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Half the side back in the hut and now the bowling all-rounders to follow. GAME ON!

Strategic Break - 32 runs required off 27 balls one might feel it is Hyderabad's game but the wicket of Shankar just at the stroke of break has given Rajasthan a big hope here. Two new batsmen will now be at the crease and Rajasthan will now need to capitalise on this. Hyderabad meanwhile will hope that the middle order can get them over the line. Yusuf Pathan is the new man in, replacing Vijay Shankar.

15.3
0
S Gopal to V Shankar, OUT! Straight to long on! Very reckless this from Shankar. This was just not needed at the moment. Gopal gives it air and lands it very full. Shankar does not get under it as he looks to go downtown. Also, his bat shakes in his hand while he makes contact with the ball. Goes flat to long on and substitute, Prashant Chopra, takes it. Shankar walks back after playing a good hand but will be disappointed with the way he got out. Two new batsmen now out in the middle. There could still be a twist here.
15.2

S Gopal to M Pandey, Need not do anything silly at the moment and Manish Pandey knows that. He drops it towards cover and gets to the other end.

Manish Pandey is the new batsman in.

14.4
0
J Unadkat to K Williamson, OUT! Unadkat has the last laugh. Length delivery outside off, Williamson looks to cut it but he does so uppishly. The ball flies to the fielder at point. Rahul Tripathi there takes a comfortable catch. Will this wicket change the tide of the game?
14.3

J Unadkat to K Williamson, FOUR! Williamson wants a piece of the act as well. Short of a length outside off, Williamson cracks it through point for a boundary.

11.5
1
Ben Stokes to V Shankar, Slower delivery and some sensible stuff from VS. With already two boundaries in the over, he need not take a risk. He taps it towards cover and gets to the other end.

10.6
0
S Gopal to J Bairstow, OUT! Bairstow holes out. Dhawal Kulkarni drops a regulation catch at third man in the previous over and then redeems himself by taking a blinder at long off. Flighted delivery outside off, Bairstow looks to heave it over long off. He does not time it well but for a moment it looks like he will clear the man but Dhawal Kulkarni stationed there has other ideas. He times his jump to perfection and plucks it out of thin air. Jonny Bairstow is shell shocked but he has to walk back. His excellent innings comes to an end. He misses out on his maiden Indian T20 League fifty.

9.6
1
Ben Stokes to J Bairstow, DROPPED! Stokes could have easily had both the openers in this over itself. How costly will this prove? Kulkarni is the culprit. Should have been taken. Stokes bowls it short and outside off again. Bairstow goes at it with hard hands but only manages an outside edge. It flies towards third man. Kulkarni there does not hang on to it. Stokes can't believe it. A life for Jonny.
9.5
4
Ben Stokes to J Bairstow, FOUR! 85 now needed in 61! A wicket has fallen but the boundaries keep coming. Short and outside off, Jonny slashes hard at it. It goes through point, beating the dive of the fielder in the deep and a boundary results.

Kane Williamson is the new man in.

9.4
0
Ben Stokes to D Warner, OUT! In the air... taken! Ben Stokes strikes! He is pumped up! A much-needed wicket as this partnership was taking the game away. An excellent short ball by Stokes to get rid of Warner. It is bowled at a good height, head height to be precise. Warner takes his eyes off the ball while pulling. Only manages a top edge towards fine leg. Dhawal Kulkarni runs in and takes it. End of a very entertaining knock from Warner. He has done his job. 89 more needed in 62.
9.3
1
Ben Stokes to J Bairstow, Cramps the batsman for room by bowling it on the body. Jonny pushes it down to long off for a single.
9.2

Ben Stokes to D Warner, Good length on middle, Warner looks to work it on the leg side but misses to get hit high on the pads. It rolls towards third man. The batsmen take a leg bye.

Ben Stokes comes back on.

S Gopal to J Bairstow, Brilliant batting this. Follows that mammoth six by flicking it wide of deep square leg for a couple. 12 off the over.
8.5
6
S Gopal to J Bairstow, SIX! Don't even bother looking at that, the sound off the bat tells you that it is out of here. Short on off, Bairstow hangs back on his crease and pulls it two rows back behind the mid-wicket fence for a huge six. With that maximum Hyderabad's score goes past 100 and it is only the 9th over.
8.4
0
S Gopal to J Bairstow, Slower through the air outside off, Bairstow comes down the track and looks to flick it but misses. The keeper appeals but the umpire is not interested.

S Gopal to J Bairstow, Clever batting! This is worked with soft hands through mid-wicket for a double.
6.3
4
S Gopal to J Bairstow, Misfield and a FOUR! Kulkarni was done in by the turn there. Bairstow sweeps it hard towards deep square leg. Kulkarni tries to stop it with not a lot of conviction. Does not do so and concedes a boundary.

6.1
1
S Gopal to D Warner, This is tossed up on off, Warner strokes it down to long off and takes a run.

Strategic break has been signaled! Hyderabad have started this chase in some manner. They are going above the run rate needed and are doing it quite easily. They would hope the two can continue the same. Rajasthan on the other hand, need a wicket here or this game will keep slipping away. Shreyas Gopal to bowl after the break.

5.6
4
J Archer to J Bairstow, FOUR! This is smacked through the off side. Length ball outside off, Archer offers room to Bairstow. He makes full use of it and smacks it through covers for a boundary. At the end of Powerplay Hyderabad are 69/0. They require 130 off 84 balls.
5.5

5.2

4.6
4
Ben Stokes to J Bairstow, FOUR! Edgy but the crowd here and the Hyderabad players do not care. Bairstow gets into the act now. Short and outside off. JB slashes but gets an outside edge which flies past Buttler and into the fence. 4 boundaries in the over. Not what Rajasthan needed. All the pressure that was built in Archer's last over has been released.
4.5
1
Ben Stokes to D Warner, A single now! 50 up for Hyderabad! They needed their openers to get them off to an excellent start and that is what has happened. Full and on the pads, this is flicked through square leg for a run.

Jofra Archer is into the attack.

2.6
1
D Kulkarni to D Warner, Make that 31 of the 34 scored so far. Also, he keeps strike as he pulls it through square leg for a single. A better second from Dhawal but still an expensive one.
2.5
4
D Kulkarni to D Warner, FOUR! This time it is a poor ball! They brought the sweeper in this time but Kulkarni continues bowling it very wide outside off. Warner manages to get it past cover-point for another boundary. He has 30 of the 33 scored.
2.4
2
D Kulkarni to D Warner, Goes wide outside off but this is bowling to his field. Warner slaps it through covers, there is a sweeper so only a couple.

2.2

D Kulkarni to J Bairstow, Sprays it on the pads does Kulkarni again. Gets away with it though as JB works it to deep square leg for a run.
2.1
1

1.6
0
K Gowtham to J Bairstow, Flatter and on middle, JB goes back and pushes it to covers. The second over is also an expensive one and Hyderabad are off to a flier here.

1.4

1.1
4
K Gowtham to D Warner, FOUR! Too easy at the moment for Warner. It is short and angled into him. He just helps it on its way over the man at square leg and a boundary to begin the second over.

Krishnappa Gowtham to bowl from the other end.

0.6
1
D Kulkarni to D Warner, A single to end and Hyderabad are off to a perfect start. 14 from the first over. It is the slower one and Warner pushes it towards cover for a run.

0.5
0
D Kulkarni to D Warner, Another mix-up but once again Bairstow is safe! Warner taps it towards point and wants a run. He then maybe sees, Ben Stokes is the fielder so sends Bairstow back. Luckily for JB, Stokes misses his throw at the bowler's end.
0.4
6
D Kulkarni to D Warner, SIX! He has picked the bones out of that one. WOW! The key here was that Warner picked the length early. Slightly short and it was coming back in. Warner gets into position early and pulls it into the mid-wicket stands. Seems like Warner has come out in some mood here.
0.3
2
D Kulkarni to D Warner, On the pads again, Warner works it through square leg and takes two.
0.2

D Kulkarni to D Warner, FOUR! Ideal start to the chase for the hosts! Poor ball though. Down the leg side, easy pickings for Warner. He works it fine on the leg side and a boundary.

We are back for the chase! David Warner and Jonny Bairstow are the openers for the hosts. They need to give them a good start here. For Rajasthan, it is Dhawal Kulkarni who has the new ball in hand. Here we go...
