Quick hop then. Switch tabs as we switch databases to Bangalore to get the second game ready for you. I was Vineet Anantharaman bringing you all the action along with Sriram, Hariprasad, Kumar Abhisekh Das, Pradeep Krishnamurthy and our scorer Vinod. Ta ta!!

Kane Williamson | Winning skipper | MoM: I think the contribution from the batting order on that surface to get 150, which was a par total, and then to squeeze well without bowling like we have in the last couple of games was incredible. They did get off to a good start, put us under pressure but it was nice for us to bounce back in the second half. The surface was definitely on the slower side, with slow turn and not a lot of bounce. They used the hard length ball well with the big boundaries, which was something we wanted to incorporate as well in our innings. I thought in the first part we were very good and were able to restrict them to a decent total. Yusuf's wicket was fortunate, probably not his best delivery, but was nice to get that wicket at that stage because he (Stokes) is such a dangerous player. The way the guys went out today, we didn't get that 10-15 more on another challenging surface but we did see an improvement, which we look to carry forward. T20 is pretty fickle in nature and it is nice to get a few wins on the board; but each game is a tough game. We need to adapt to conditions, not get ahead of ourselves, which have varied a lot and that's what we aim to build on and do going forward as well. Alex (Hales) is world class in this format; it was nice for him to get us off to a good start and it was great for him to have that opportunity.

19:27 local: They're making a habit of this. Nothing's small enough, no situation is lost-worthy enough for these guys to give up. And Hyderabad are pulling out new formulas of defence. With Rahane having anchored the chase, held up one end and cruising along with the asking rate well under control, Rajasthan had no business losing this. But Rashid continued his web, the seamers let out knuckle balls at will, and watched yet another side crumble against the asking run-rate. Rahane by no means is a hitter, and he surely wasn't helped by the English imports scratching around for form at this stage. And before they knew, it slipped. But in the end, it was that life Williamson got with some generous bit of fielding that would come back to haunt them hard. Stick around, the presentations coming up.

Basil Thampi to Jofra Archer, 1 run, it's it. Full, tailing in, whipped away .. doesn't matter where it goes. Hyderabad top tables

Jofra Archer, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Basil Thampi to Gowtham, out Caught by Dhawan!! There's the nail. The unlikeliest of ties is out of the equation too. Quite a half volley this, Gowtham can't get under the length though, drills it uppishly, without elevation. This time Dhawan at long-off need not tumble, he can stay and collect. Gowtham c Dhawan b Basil Thampi 8(5) [4s-1]

Basil Thampi to Gowtham, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Basil Thampi to Gowtham, 2 runs, full, straight, right out of the death bowling manual. Gowtham goes straight down, drilling it to a tumbling Dhawan. And he's high-fiving .. it's sealed guys. 13 off 2

Gowtham needs to unleash his avatar he had on display against Mumbai.

Basil Thampi to Rahane, 1 run, keeps it in the blockhole. Rahane can only get a toe-end, down the pitch
Basil Thampi to Gowtham, 1 run, tailing in, another attempted yorker. Squeezed out only as far as extra cover waiting in the ring
Basil Thampi to Gowtham, FOUR, gets his line wrong. Gets his length wrong. A yorker in the form of a half volley, the line stays on middle and Gowtham's hoick gets a fat inside edge, through his legs and through a vacant square leg

Basil Thampi [1.0-0-17-0] is back into the attack

So 21 off 6. How things turn. Thampi gets his chance to avenge his first over carnage.

S Kaul to Rahane, no run, low, bent, wanting to hoick into the night sky. Nah. Can't. Inside-tickle is all he gets to the keeper
S Kaul to Rahane, 2 runs, 115.2kph. Ugly. Across, opened up and carves it away through point. You can trust a Bengali with footie skills, Shakib shows them at the boundary. Oh neat
S Kaul to Gowtham, 1 run, swivels, pulling it away round the corner. 23 off 8 and Rahane has his strike

Krishnappa Gowtham, right handed bat, comes to the crease

S Kaul to Lomror, out Caught by Saha!! Wide knuckle ball, angling way across -- tempting Lomror to chase, take on the big boundary. Well he has to. Throws his bat out .. he wouldn't have had a problem even with some sort of a big edge. Gets it off the outside, yes, but not past a flying Saha to his left. Lomror c Saha b S Kaul 11(12)

S Kaul to Lomror, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

S Kaul to Lomror, 2 runs, this drama. In a match that's set to remembered for a drop, here's Pandey almost pulling off a stunner. So Lomror slog-slices high up. Pandey reverse-cups right at the edge of long-off. Realizes he's slipping over and throws it back in. He's making a habit of these
S Kaul to Rahane, 1 run, knuckle, length, middle. Rahane makes room, slaps hard, but straight to backward point

27 now off 12. And we thought a big hit would ease out the equation.

Rashid Khan to Rahane, 1 run, dragged short. Sits up for a heave into mid-wicket
Rashid Khan to Rahane, no run, so he has a reverse sweep too. Oh dear, save the sanctity, somebody. It's down leg, and Rahane's missed. And the umpire's not amused
Rashid Khan to Lomror, 1 run, takes it on the full. Muscling, bottom-handed through mid-wicket
Rashid Khan to Lomror, no run, goes googly, Lomror trapped with flat feet, just can't slap it right. Can't slap it at all in fact
Rashid Khan to Rahane, 1 run, another sweep. Nailed away in front of square
Rashid Khan to Rahane, SIX, and there. Crunch. Targets the smaller leg-side, premeditates a sweep, slogging it uppishly, deep into mid-wicket. That should simplify things

The equation: 36 off 18. One hit / One wicket to kill the contest.

S Kaul to Rahane, 1 run, 120.5kph. Opens ups his stance, baseball-like, quietly knocked around in front of square
S Kaul to Lomror, 1 run, clears his front leg, bit can't get under this fuller length. Hammers it down the ground
S Kaul to Rahane, 1 run, 118.6kph knuckle ball. Rahane walks, shuffles and there's no pace to be doing anything fancy. So another one of his staple whips through mid-wicket
S Kaul to Lomror, 1 run, 114.5kph, hard drive, through the covers. Sensible singles these
S Kaul to Rahane, 1 run, ramps out to the width to guide it to short third
S Kaul to Rahane, 2 runs, full, tailing back in, dug out to long-on -- credit the second to slow timing and the massive outfields

Siddarth Kaul [2.0-0-10-1] is back into the attack

Rashid Khan to Rahane, 1 run, delicate dab, expecting it to run away. But Yusuf's diving, putting his body on the line at short third man
Rashid Khan to Lomror, 1 run, 96.1kph, some sort of a cramped cut through the covers. Super-quick hands
Rashid Khan to Lomror, 2 runs, reverse, sweeping, does clear point, but not quite the legs to beat sweeper
Rashid Khan to Rahane, 1 run, bigger shuffle, ensures he's behind the line as he takes matters leg-sided
Rashid Khan to Rahane, no run, from the back of the palm, drawing Rahane into the drive. Only to fox him with the spit up, beating him comprehensively
Rashid Khan to Rahane, 2 runs, 97kph leg-spinning skidder. Rahane whips it off his sticker, and nobody quite bothers chasing as it meekly rolls through mid-wicket. Rashid eventually has to

The final time-out -- CRAJ: 6.8 | REQ: 10 -- Oh these close finishes.

Sandeep Sharma to Rahane, 1 run, 111.4kph. Consecutive knuckle number three. But it's short, allowing Rahane to wait on his back foot, read, shuffle, and whip it down to long-on
Sandeep Sharma to Rahane, 2 runs, slow again. Rahane's wrists are softer, knocking it into mid-wicket, where the fielder's right at the boundary to pinch him for a second
Sandeep Sharma to Lomror, 1 run, so he has a knuckle ball too. Floated up wide outside off, making Lomror wait in a steery push through point

DYK - Rashid Khan has dismissed Buttler three times now in T20s off eight balls.

Sandeep Sharma to Lomror, no run, stabs at the width, finding point
