commentary

That's a wrap to today's T20 League coverage. After a nail-biting finish in the tournament opener, we've had three rather dull games in a row. Tonight's one being the most one-sided of them all. Let's hope that changes soon and it could, tomorrow itself. A big game as the Chennai gear themselves up to host the Kolkata at Chepauk. It's the first home game for Dhoni's men in 3 years and therefore, expect a crackling atmosphere. We'll be up nice and early for the coverage. Do join us for all the entertainment. Till then, this is Hariprasad signing off on behalf of my mates Pradeep, Rishi, Pratyush, Sriram and our scorer Siva. Cya!

A few number crunches from Deepu Narayanan to wrap up today's proceedings:

Wins with most balls to spare for HYD:
37 v DEL, HYD, 2013 (Target: 81)
31 v GUJ, Rajkot, 2016 (Target: 136)
27 v GUJ, HYD, 2017 (Target: 136)
26 v RAJ, HYD, 2018 (Target: 126)

Today's RAJ innings was the 11th instance of a team not hitting a six in a completed 20-overs innings in T20 League. It was the fourth such instance by RAJ - the most for a team

Most matches in T20 League:
162 S Raina
160 R Sharma/ MS Dhoni
153 D Karthik
150 V Kohli/ R Uthappa/ Yusuf Pathan (today)

Shikhar Dhawan, Man of the Match: "I enjoy playing long innings. It benefits the team, it benefits me. Trying to stretch the good form as long as possible and score big runs for as long as I can. I've been playing more aggressively since South Africa series and the Sri Lanka series, and not just in this T20 League. So I'm just continuing with that formula, and I'm happy with it. We have a very balanced team, which is the strength of our side, and that is the key. We have started the tournament on a good note, and hopefully that'll help us and give us the momentum for the rest of the tournament."

Kane Williamson: "No doubt we missed Davey (Warner). He's been a fantastic player for a lot of years. Good to see everyone stepping up. Guys were great on the field and all did their roles well. It was nice to see people step up well with both bat and ball. All the bowlers certainly played their part. We got wickets at key times, but it was important we fielded well. We took some really good catches. A team effort. Yes, there are small areas we can still improve. (On bowling a lot of short balls) It wasn't a planned thing, the surface was such that the short ball was coming on nicely. There was something for the pacers and the spinners while the batsmen were also to score runs. A fair surface actually. (On Dhawan's innings) I had the best seat in the house, he hit it really well. The intent was great from ball one. Saha also showed intent from the start. Hopefully we can keep it up in the coming games as well."

Siddarth Kaul: "It's a pretty good feeling to win the game. I was working hard in the domestic season and in the nets as well. Glad, it came good today. Hitting the right areas was the plan for me. It was a small total but we had great experience in the batting and they played well (Shikhar and Williamson). We are missing him (David Warner), but the players are coping up with the loss and they know what to do exactly. I am looking forward to the next game."

Ajinkya Rahane: "We thought 126 was on the lower side. When we were batting we thought 160 would be a great total. We did quite well as a bowling unit, but the Hyderabad were excellent with the ball. Sanju (Samson) and I tried to back our game but lost too many wickets in the middle, and that's where we lost the game. I think the lack of one big partnership is what cost us. Even one partnership would have given us a more competitive total. I'm very unhappy with the dropped catch. I work very hard on my fielding during practice, but it's a part and parcel of the game - you have some bad days. It's the first game, and we have to learn from our mistakes and not repeat them in future."

23:06 Local Time: A very one-sided contest in the end. 125 was never going to be enough anyway but the way Dhawan played, made it a mockery. He was dropped on 0 though by the usually safe Rahane and the Rajasthan will regret it badly. Not that the visitors would have won if that was taken but certainly, might have stretched the game close perhaps. As things panned out, Dhawan continued on his merry ways to smash an unbeaten half-century, keeping up with his fab form that's started since last June. The win though, was set up by HYD's bowlers who were exceptional on a track that was two-paced. The RAJ batsmen also didn't help their cause by not reading the surface well. A total of around 145-150 would have been more than handy on this pitch but wickets at regular intervals hurt them bad.

D Kulkarni to Dhawan, FOUR, crunchy blow to end the game! Shortish and sits up nicely for Dhawan who rocks back to slam the pull over mid-wicket. Blazed away to the fence and with that, the Hyderabad have stormed to a win in their season opener
15.4
0
D Kulkarni to Dhawan, no run, another dot! Dhawan was moving around in the crease and then gets across the stumps, Kulkarni though just keeps his calm to bowl a pinpoint wide yorker. Just bordering on the tramline but that's fine

13.6
1
Unadkat to Dhawan, 1 run, good work at short fine leg, the fielder gets across to his right and makes a tumbling stop to save a certain boundary. This was angling in on off, Dhawan gets across with a nice shuffle and clips it with a neat deflection off his pads

D Arcy Short to Dhawan, byes, FOUR, that's beaten everyone! For a moment, I thought it was a genuine edge but it wasn't. D Arcy Short gets this to spin away from a fuller length and the drastic turn beats Dhawan's attempted drive. Buttler also fails to react in time and with no slip in place, free runs it is
12.5

D Arcy Short to Dhawan, no run, premeditated charge down the track but the length is cleverly shortened. Dhawan misses the flick and wears it high on the pad

D Arcy Short, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack

11.7 Okay, this ball is officially the seventh ball of the over. Things we see. Laughlin to Dhawan, 1 run, short ball pulled round the corner

11.6
4
Laughlin to Dhawan, FOUR, what a sound off the blade! Gee, he just nailed that one, did Dhawan. Back of a length and plenty of width outside off, Dhawan just leant into it and slap-punched on the up. Gets it past a diving mid-off fielder and it speeds away. Considering the form he has been of late and the way he has played today, he is bound to light this T20 League up

10.5
4
Shreyas Gopal to Williamson, FOUR, kaboooooom! That's been smashed to pulp and it's Williamson who has done it. Things that an T20 League season does. Even the gracious batsmen look for power. Uses his feet and smacks it hard over the bowler's head. Gopal may have thought about a return catch but there was no time at all to react, chose to wisely save himself
10.4
0
Shreyas Gopal to Williamson, no run, full and outside off, leans forward and pushes it towards cover
10.3
1
Shreyas Gopal to Dhawan, leg byes, 1 run, not sure what prompted Rahane to take the review. Always seemed like pitching outside leg and the replays confirm it. Loopy and full around leg, Dhawan missed the sweep and was rapped on the pad. Never looked close at all. Desperation perhaps. The batsmen crossed during the appeal

Bizarre LBW appeal and it's being reviewed as well! Seemed like it pitched outside leg. Let's have a look. Oh yes, certainly it has. Waste of a review

Twitter musings, 2nd innings, #6: "@_rrroy_ the only team that is capable of defending such a low is unfortunately the batting side :) @SunRisers" - Mohammed Moiz (@DastagirMoiz).

9.4
0
Stokes to Dhawan, no run, just back in is Dhawan and has his skipper Williamson to thank for it, it was a good call to send the southpaw back. Was nudged towards short mid-wicket and Dhawan wanted the single badly. Was never a run there

Run out appeal sent upstairs. Dhawan the man in question but he seems in. Yes, he is

9.3
4
Stokes to Dhawan, FOUR, oh boy, that's top quality stuff! Slower ball from Stokes but Dhawan is in such a mood that he is picking everything. Waits for it and there was width on offer, so just reached out to hammer it through the covers. Rocketed away
9.2
0
Stokes to Dhawan, no run, short of a length outside off, punched off the back foot towards mid-off
9.1
4
Stokes to Dhawan, FOUR, cracker of a shot! Dhawan is in top gear and brings up his 29th T20 League fifty in some style. Short and wide, he stands tall and spanks it through backward point. Power, timing and placement all in unison

Twitter musings, 2nd innings, #5: "Hyderabad won't miss David Warner much, if Dhawan and Williamson carry this sublime form throughout the tournament." - Sourabh Acharya (@tuned_wordlust).

Twitter musings, 2nd innings, #4: "@_rrroy_ Test of the character for Rahane. I think he is nervous. RAJ is seriously missing Archer's X-factor." - Avais Mirza (@yoursonly_avais).

7.3
1
Stokes to Dhawan, 1 run, sensible stuff. Taps this length delivery towards cover and scampers across for a quick single. There's a direct-hit at the striker's end and it has been referred to the third umpire. Williamson has safely dragged his bat inside the crease. So, it's NOT OUT
7.2
4
Stokes to Dhawan, FOUR, consecutive fours for Dhawan. Stokes sprays it down leg, Dhawan just gets a tickle on it and sends it very fine. Races away to the fine leg fence

6.2
1
Shreyas Gopal to Dhawan, 1 run, top-edgeee but falls in no-man's land. The wrong'un from Gopal, Dhawan went back for the swat - doesn't read it and gets a top-edge that drops into the vacant square leg region. Dhawan needs to thank his stars..
6.1
4
Shreyas Gopal to Dhawan, FOUR, horror start for Gopal. Drags it short first up, ample time for Dhawan to rock back and pick his spot. Chooses cow corner and dismisses from his sight

Shreyas Gopal, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack

Deepu chips in with another stat: There have been 14 100+ stands for HYD in T20 League and 13 of them involved Warner. The two out in the middle -- Dhawan and Williamson -- forged the other one, the only one not involving Warner (136 vs DEL, Hyderabad, 2017)

And the umpire shows his watch to signal the strategic time-out. HYD are cruising with Williamson and Dhawan looking in sublime touch. RAJ looking flat and deflated at the moment. Can they inspire a comeback? Just 69 runs needed in 84 balls.

5.6
4
Laughlin to Williamson, FOUR, 50-stand comes up between the duo. Short and width are like oxygen to Williamson. Gets on top of the bounce and caresses it through cover-point
5.5

Laughlin to Dhawan, 1 run, back of a length delivery on middle and leg, Dhawan tucks it to square leg and rushes to the other end

Twitter musings, 2nd innings, #3: "@_rrroy_ The most expensive Indian bowler of this year's T20 League is also expensive with the ball. That's not what @rajasthanroyals expects from him." - Arya Harish (@aryaharish28).

5.3

5.1
2
Laughlin to Dhawan, no ball, 1 run, inauspicious start for Laughlin, but hold on. Replays show that he has got some part of his heel behind the line. Very harsh call. Peppered it short just outside off, Dhawan drops it softly into the off-side and a free-hit coming up for Williamson

Ben Laughlin, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

RAJ turn to spin. Here's K Gowtham with a slip.

Statbuzz: RAJ's innings today was the 11th instance of a team not hitting a six in a completed 20-over innings in T20 League. It was the fourth such instance by RAJ - the most for a team.

2.5
6
D Kulkarni to Dhawan, SIX, Dhawan has not been at his best so far today, but this is a shot of highest class. Kulkarni pounds it short for the nth time - well outside off. Dhawan hops across and upper-cuts. Gets enough bat to send it sailing over the third man fielder
2.4

D Kulkarni to Dhawan, no run, moving away just outside off, Dhawan stands tall and displays his trademark punch. Straight to extra cover

0
Unadkat to Saha, out Caught by Laughlin!! And Unadkat strikes. So, Saha's promotion doesn't work for HYD. Fuller and slanted well outside off, Saha in quest to clear the in-field on the off-side - slices it tamely off the outer half and skies it to mid-off. Safe as houses is Laughlin. One of HYD's supporters has his hands on his mouth. Just the start RAJ wanted. Saha c Laughlin b Unadkat 5(5) [4s-1]

Unadkat to Saha, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

1.3
1
Unadkat to Saha, wide, did that hit a fuel well or something? Unadkat bangs it short and it rockets off the deck to loop over Saha's head. A leaping one-handed grab from Buttler

D Kulkarni to Dhawan, no run, edged and dropped. "One of the safest fielders in the slips has dropped a catch" is the comment from Sanjay Manjrekar on air. Huge moment in the game. Guess who's the culprit? It's skipper Ajinkya Rahane. A simple regulation take - length delivery angled across outside off. Dhawan aiming to break the dots slashes hard and outside-edges it straight to first slip. Jinks gets both hands but shells it. Kulkarni is in disbelief
