All|Overs 1-50
4

to Mandeep, FOUR, first boundary for Mandeep and BLR. Full and on the pads, needed to be put away and Mandeep did just that, picked it up and dispatched it over mid-wicket, couple of bounces and into the fence

4

to Mandeep, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries to end the first over. Again, is a tad short in his length, Mandeep had the width to cut and he didn't try to hit it hard, just placed it behind point and Bhuvi at third man gave up the chase pretty quickly

4

to Gayle, FOUR, goes back to the shorter length, Gayle seems a tad comfortable with that, hops on one leg and uses 's pace to guide it past the diving short fine leg fielder

4

to Mandeep, FOUR, might have been the slower one and Mandeep picked the bones out of that one. He cleared his front leg to give him more options and then slots the loft over mid-on, one bounce and over the rope

6

to Gayle, SIX, that ball hung in the night sky for eternity. Never looked like coming down. For what it's worth Gayle gets the maximum result. Length delivery right in the swinging zone and Gayle did not hold back, went full-monty and heaved it over deep mid-wicket. Six number one for Gayle in T20 League 10

6

to Gayle, SIX, Gayle is in the mood. Mind you, he's not been in the best of forms, but T20 League is his cup of tea. dishes a full length delivery and hopes to get away with it, Gayle doesn't allow him to, carves it over long-on for his second maximum

4

to Mandeep, FOUR, Mandeep is playing the perfect foil to Gayle. Warner already worried. Full on middle and leg, whipped through mid-wicket and mid-on. Hit uppishly but placed it expertly in the gap

4

to Gayle, FOUR, not convincing, but Gayle will take that. A very good over from . Just misses the length this ball, goes full and that allows Gayle to get underneath and hoick it over mid-wicket. Not off the middle but enough to clear the fielder

4

Khan to Mandeep, FOUR, throws it up once more and this time Mandeep threads the crowded off-side field. Overpitched and Mandeep went full-throttle on the drive, raced to the sweeper fence

W

Khan to Mandeep, out Bowled!! He strikes! The customary celebration follows. One hand up and the finger pointing skywards. The most delighted man in the dugout was his fellow countryman - Mohammad Nabi. He too had his finger up in celebration. The quicker wrong 'un and Mandeep clearly did not pick it, went back for the cut and gets cramped for room, only manages a chop onto the stumps. Mandeep b Khan 24(16) [4s-5]

6

Hooda to Gayle, SIX, a gift from Hooda and Gayle thumps it over the rope. A full toss outside off, Gayle takes a step out and slots it straight back over the bowler's head. Went miles back into the crowd

W

Hooda to Gayle, out Caught by Warner!! It was an experiment from Warner and it has paid off. Completes the catch, turns towards the crowd and does a fist pump. BLR have lost two in quick succession. Both set batsmen gone. Slows it up as Gayle gives the charge, he goes through with the loft even though he isn't to pitch of the ball, miscues it towards long-off and Warner ain't dropping those. Gayle c Warner b Hooda 32(21) [4s-2 6s-3]

4

Khan to Head, FOUR, lots of flighted and lands as a half volley, Head gets a good stride forward and drives it past Henriques at extra cover, the timing was superb as long-off had no chance of cutting that off

4

Khan to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, ordinary delivery from and Jadhav is all over it. The young man is shaking his head while taking his cap from the umpire. Half tracker which sat up nicely for Jadhav, who pulls it between deep mid-wicket and long-on

6

to Kedar Jadhav, SIX, that looked like a half-hearted shot from Jadhav and it has travelled the distance. Picked the back of a length delivery and pulled it to the vacant deep mid-wicket region, just cleared the rope

4

to Head, FOUR, Head does the most of the full length delivery, stays deep in the crease and opens himself up to free his arms, smashes it straight down the ground and even a quick Warner could not reach that from long-on

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, hit straight back at and he was late to get his hand up. Once more the off-cutter which almost fooled Jadhav, who shimmied down and checked his drive, middled it alright to beat the mid-off fielder

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, another full toss, it's Jadhav this time and he picks his spot into the deep mid-wicket fence. Not great bowling from . He's missing the yorker by quite a bit

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, four more. Jadhav starting to really find his timing now and he's looking dangerous. This is smart batting rather than just throwing his bat at everything. He knows that fine leg is up and so he waits for the back of a length delivery to come to him before pulling it over the fielder. under pressure

W

to Kedar Jadhav, out Kedar Jadhav Run Out!! 1 run completed. Cutting has conjured a wicket out of nowhere. That's a sensational throw from the deep. My goodness. He's absolutely nailed the stump from long leg and Jadhav is out of here. This is a huge moment in the context of the match, especially as Jadhav was looking so good. Even this shot which he played was extraordinary. It was a length ball outside off, Jadhav sat on his back knee and scooped it over short fine leg. He was a little slow to decide on the second run, maybe a little hesitant and boy did Cutting make him pay! More than a couple of feet short, even with a dive. Kedar Jadhav run out (Cutting) 31(16) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

Khan to Head, FOUR, goes down and smashes the full toss over the deep mid-wicket ropes. Some nerves maybe from the Afghanistan leggie and Head pounced all over them with a mighty slog-sweep

W

Khan to Head, out Caught by Yuvraj!! strikes back! That might have been the googly. Yeah, it seems so. Head went for another slog-sweep, but due to the variation, managed to generate some extra-bounce which took more of a thick top-edge and lobbed up towards long-on. It still came really close to clearing the boundary though. Yuvraj keeps his cool and takes it smartly. Head c Yuvraj b Khan 30(22) [4s-3]

W

Sharma to Sachin Baby, out Caught by Henriques!! Straight up off a leading edge, taken! HYD taking control. There's no turn on the ball as fires it on leg-stump from round the wicket, Baby swings across the line and is undone by the sliding delivery. Good catch from Henriques too. He pedalled backwards from mid-wicket and made it much easier than it should have been. Sachin Baby c Henriques b Sharma 1(3)

6

Khan to Watson, SIX, finishes with a long hop. To be fair, it's not abysmally short, but Watson is so good on the back foot. Rocks back quickly and hammers the pull over long-on

6

to Binny, SIX, slower ball again but this time Binny hacks it over deep mid-wicket. It was slightly closer to off-stump and was given a fair tonk

4

to Watson, FOUR, plants his foot down and absolutely drills the ball wide of a diving extra-cover. Overpitched from , Watson blasts him away

D

to Binny, 1 run, dropped! Naman Ojha, with the gloves on, puts one down. The ball went high up and was swirling awkwardly all the way through. But at this level, it should be taken. Binny was completely duped by the slower leg-cutter. Such good bowling from Bhuvi to keep it wide of off and out of reach

W

to Binny, out Caught by Yuvraj!! Gone this time. Yuvraj makes no mistake at backward point. What a top over this has been from . It may now be a mountain too high for the BLR to climb. Binny backs away to slash a back of a length delivery over point. But this is a leg-cutter which bounces spongily and he slices it up to the fielder. Binny c Yuvraj b 11(10) [6s-1]

W

to Watson, out Caught by Henriques!! That's the end of Watson, and of BLR. The little bit of reverse-swing which uses to curl the ball away from Watson does his undoing. Despite it being another full toss, Watson slices it straight up off the outside half of his bat. Simple catch at extra-cover. Watson c Henriques b 22(17) [4s-1 6s-1]

W

to Aravind, out Bowled!! Terrific yorker from ; a perfect way to seal wicket no. 100 in the T20 League for the veteran pacer. The ball tails back in, zips through Aravind before his bat could come down and plants leg-stump into its grave. on a hat-trick. Aravind b 0(2)

6

to Tymal Mills, SIX, full and wide, Mills has a proper dash at it and he's flayed it away over the point boundary. Magnificent hit. won't enjoy that

W

to Tymal Mills, out Caught by Warner!! Good lord, that's got air miles on it. Way up into the night sky, Warner settles under it at long-on and takes it. had slowed the pace down on the delivery, causing Mills to go through with the hoick too early. Right off the toe-end of the bat. Tymal Mills c Warner b 6(3) [6s-1]

6

to Aniket Choudhary, SIX, first ball Choudhary faces in the T20 League, he smashes it over long leg. A short ball from , Choudhary swings into an instinctive pull and gets enough on it

W

to Aniket Choudhary, out Chahal Run Out!! Direct-hit and that's it! HYD with a comprehensive win in the T20 League 10 opener. Another pull shot from Choudhary, this one's straight to mid-wicket. Chahal comes running down only to be sent back and he had given up. Jordan with the bull's eye. Chahal run out (Jordan) 3(7)

4

Mills to Warner, FOUR, lovely shot, sublime timing on that one from Warner, it wasn't anything more than a back-foot punch. This was a back of a length delivery outside off, he got on top of the bounce and placed it in the gap past point

4

Choudhary to Warner, FOUR, smashed, width on offer from Choudhary, Warner gets forward and thumps it over mid-off, couple of bounces and over the ropes

6

Choudhary to Warner, SIX, .. and Warner makes the most of the free-hit. Another pretty poor ball from Choudhary, short and just outside off, Warner rocks back and pulls it high and over mid-wicket, went sailing into the stands for the first six of T20 League 10

W

Choudhary to Warner, out Caught by Mandeep!! The night has changed completely for the 27-year old BLR debutant. Warner has been dismissed for less than fifty for the first time against BLR - when he's playing for HYD. On a good length and well outside off, it was there to be smacked, Warner didn't go through with the shot completely, he was just looking to clear the infield. Mandeep times his jump to perfection at point and completes a good two-handed catch. Warner c Mandeep b Choudhary 14(8) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

Choudhary to Henriques, FOUR, eventful first over from Choudhary, a wicket and 16 runs. Another freebie to end his over, short and wide outside off, Henriques was all over it as he cracked it square past point, beats the inner ring and rolls away to the fence

OT

to Henriques, 1 run, a direct hit at the bowler's end and Henriques was struggling. He was coming back for the second run, Dhawan didn't respond one bit. Aravind was the man with the throw and he sent it to the keeper. Kedar Jadhav still had time to effect the run-out, but his shy is way off-target. Henriques scrambles home with a dive. Coming to the ball, it was flat and wide of off, punched to the left of long-off

4

to Henriques, FOUR, too short from , can't bowl those at his pace. Henriques swivels across, rolls his wrists and pulls it behind square on the on-side for a boundary

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, gentle loosener from , short and on Dhawan's hips, he swivels across, uses the pace on the ball and helps it behind square on the on-side for a boundary

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, lovely shot, Dhawan is getting into his groove now. Comes down the track, doesn't get close to the ball, that allows him to free his arms and drill it back past the umpire, no need to run for those

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, juicy full-toss and Dhawan has put it away, turning out to be an expensive start from . Dhawan leans into the shot and finds the gap wide of mid-off, no need to run for those

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, make that four fours of the over, banged in short and on the stumps, Dhawan swivels across, rolls his wrists and pulls it behind square on the on-side. was expensive in the final of T20 League 2016, he has started badly here once again

6

to Henriques, SIX, massive, Henriques shimmies down the track, makes room as he did so and goes high and over long-on, went a long way into the stands. Watches in admiration as the ball kept going and going

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, oh boy. He's toying around with the bowling out here. looks to go wide outside off with the shortened length as well. But Dhawan in all his confidence walks across, crouches and half-pulls, half-sweeps it past the reach of the man at 45-degrees behind square

W

to Dhawan, out Caught by Sachin Baby!! This was coming. It really was. Tactical aggression here from SD with his dance down the track looking to smoke some into the clouds. Does everything in getting right to the pitch of this fuller one as well, swings mighty too, just that he skews it off the toe end. All the altitude and into the safe palms of Baby at long-on. Dhawan c Sachin Baby b 40(31) [4s-5]

4

to Yuvraj, FOUR, here's the pick up. Vintage Yuvraj. Helped by an allying half volley on the pads at gentle pace and all he does with it is lovingly lofts his flick. All the timing and a bounce into the mid-wicket fence

4

Choudhary to Yuvraj, FOUR, streaky. But the runs keeps leaking. Does it really matter how. Wide, half way down the track and Yuvraj anticipates the ball to fizz up in flat batting it across. There's barely any climb, and all he gets is the inside edge to impart the direction in guiding it just past the sticks

6

Choudhary to Yuvraj, SIX, whoa. This is getting back in the 2007 zone. Choudhary without a clue as to where to bowl goes full and wide. The mind-reader gets the front leg out and unleashes a full bat swing showing the maker's name in tonking it right on the extra cover ropes

4

Choudhary to Yuvraj, FOUR, and it keeps getting better. Rocks back, stands tall, waits for the short drag down to sit up and swats in his swivel. All the crunch in the timing to reintroduce it back into the fence

D

Choudhary to Yuvraj, 1 run, oh Aravind. You really do not grant a life. Certainly not to this guy. Another compulsive pull here from Yuvraj but with the ball gaining in height, only manages the top-edge. Right into the hands of fine leg, who slides and makes an absolute mess

4

to Yuvraj, FOUR, back to the usual. Is this a surprise anymore. This time the skipper decides to test him with a short one, one that neither has the pace nor the bounce. And obliged with a swat. As flat as you'd want

4

to Henriques, FOUR, on the charge. And the slap. The combo bags yet another fence hunter. Walks down, intercepts the length and gets on top of the bounce of this back of a length delivery in flaying it in front of square

6

to Yuvraj, SIX, into the first tier. And a standing admire from Yuvraj. serves a pie with the short sitter and heaved away. So very typical. Equally friendly bowling here as well

6

to Henriques, SIX, now Henriques joins the act. Wants to ive his partner a run for his money. A run for some crowd catchers. Keeps banging it in short with the pitch sucking away all the momentum. Another mow across to give the crowd some work. Brings up his fifty. In some style

W

to Henriques, out Caught by Sachin Baby!! Some normalcy restored. And as always is the case, it is spin that gets on that duty. doesn't mind giving it some air inviting the big swing. And gets just that. A full-blooded tonk down and skewed away. Almost teases Baby at the long-off fence with this one threatening to fly over, before the bucket hands facing upwards come to the rescue in plucking it out. They're checking the foot's behaviour - just inside the permissable limits. Henriques c Sachin Baby b 52(37) [4s-3 6s-2]

D

to Yuvraj, 1 run, is that a bird? Is that a plane? Oh it is Mandeep Singh on his flying ways. Yuvraj goes through with yet another ones of his delightful airy drives. Is in the process of admiration just as Mandy runs across at the long-off fence, leaps and pulls it back into the field of play. Almost plucked it out while landing down too. Oof

4

Mills to Yuvraj, FOUR, head on. The battle continues. With Mills keen on cramping him up with the short pepper gets it barely up to the ribs. Just when he spots the bat going flat and the face pointing upwards in hooking it away. Behind square it flies

6

Choudhary to Deepak Hooda, SIX, the march to the double ton gets another gear. And some help from Chahal in tipping it over the fence. Hooda opens up and uses his entire height to good effect in his tall pull. Mid-wicket takes another one in its kitty

4

Choudhary to Yuvraj, FOUR, a salute in celebration. Takes the bat to his head in holding it up to his team mates inside. Covers all his sticks with a shuffle and after getting bored of the wides throws the kitchen sink at it and slaps it over point. #HisFastestT20 LeagueFifty

4

Mills to Yuvraj, FOUR, full, down leg. Nothing right with that. Certainly not if fine leg is inside. Certainly not if that man is Chris Gayle. All Yuvraj has to do is get the bat down in giving it some tickle. And places it wide and into the ropes

6

Mills to Yuvraj, SIX, the murder continues. Mass murder. Another spirit buries itself inside this pitch. Overcompensates going short, going quick but the response is quicker. Is brutal too. Back to his high backlifted pulls. Gravity too cannot pull it down

W

Mills to Yuvraj, out Bowled!! The zings light up. The crowd refuses to believe and keep searching for the ball. Nope, that's the end of the fun in store folks. Mills for a change aims for the stumps, going slower as well. Nicely off the back of the hand and foxes him with the seam position. A swat across the line is missed eventually and the top of leg takes the brunt. This has been some serious clock roll back here. Makes me feel 10 years younger. Yuvraj b Mills 62(27) [4s-7 6s-3]

6

to Cutting, SIX, the yorkers too cannot stop the bleeding. Cutting rocks way inside, crouches, gets underneath the supposed yorker and carries on from the finals a year ago in tonking the drive

6

to Cutting, SIX, a dramatic photo finish. tries another short one but this time Cutting ain't surprised. Stands up, uses his entire height to good effect and smokes it away. Admiring it as he does so. As flat as the bat motion could get
