  • 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.
  • 18.7JArcher to RKhan

    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!
  • 18.6JArcher to RKhan

    FOUR! That is probably the shot which seals the game for the hosts. 4 in 7 now. Archer misses the yorker by just and ends up serving a half volley outside off. Rashid strokes it through covers, away from the sweeper and into the fence.
  • 18.5JArcher to RKhan

    WIDE! No, not at this moment. Can't give away such bonus runs. Down the leg side, Rashid looks to flick but misses. Wided.
  • 18.4JArcher to YPathan

    Brilliant stuff! Another yorker, not a lot you can do with that. Pathan only manages to jam it out towards third man for a single. 9 from 8.
  • 18.3JArcher to RKhan

    Another single! It was a full toss but it was too quick. Rashid looks to whip but it goes off the edge towards long on for a single.
  • 18.2JArcher to YPathan

    Just a one! Pathan manages to squirt it through point, towards third man for a single.
  • 18.1JArcher to YPathan

    A dot to begin! Brilliant yorker on middle, Pathan strokes it towards mid off who is not at the edge of the circle which means no single.
  • 17.7JUnadkat to RKhan

    A couple to end! 8 from the over, a good one for the hosts in the context of the game. 12 from 12 needed now. Short and on middle, Rashid looks to pull but it goes off the bottom half towards deep mid-wicket for two.
  • 17.6JUnadkat to YPathan

    Well fielded! Every run is important at the moment! Skipper leading from the front here. Pathan slaps it towards covers. Rahane there dives to his right and keeps it down to one.
  • 17.5JUnadkat to YPathan

    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.
  • 17.4JUnadkat to YPathan

    WIDE! Too high! Short and goes way above the batsman's head. Wided.
  • 17.3JUnadkat to RKhan

    Gets bat to ball and hits it towards cover for a single.
  • 17.2JUnadkat to RKhan

    Good slower ball! It is short and outside off, Rashid goes hard at it but is beaten by the lack of pace.
  • 17.1JUnadkat to YPathan

    Slightly short and outside off, this is slapped through covers for a single.
  • Jaydev Unadkat is back into the attack.
  • 16.7JArcher to RKhan

    Full and on off, Rashid strokes it back to the bowler. A dot to end 20 needed in 18 balls.
  • 16.6JArcher to RKhan

    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.
  • 16.5JArcher to YPathan

    A single! A short ball on off, this one zips through. Yusuf is hurried into the pull shot, he only manages to mistime it towards mid on for a single.
  • 16.4JArcher to YPathan

    Brilliant yorker again, Yusuf this time keeps it out but straight back to the bowler. Another dot. 22 in 20.
  • 16.3JArcher to YPathan

    A dot! 22 needed in 21. A yorker outside off, Pathan fails to jam it out.
  • 16.2JArcher to YPathan

    SIX! Eases all the pressure that was building! Powerful shot! Short and on middle, Pathan stands tall and pulls it over the mid-wicket fence. 22 needed in 22.
  • 16.1JArcher to YPathan

    Well played! A yorker on off, Pathan jams it out through point for a couple.
  • Jofra Archer is back into the attack.
  • 15.6SGopal to YPathan

    This is hit hard down the ground but just for a single. End of a brilliant over by Gopal. 4 runs and 2 wickets from it. This could well be the game-changing over here for the visitors. 30 needed in 24.
  • 15.5SGopal to RKhan

    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.
  • 15.4SGopal to MPandey

    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.
  • 15.3SGopal to VShankar

    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.
  • 15.2SGopal to MPandey

    Need not do anything silly at the moment and Manish Pandey knows that. He drops it towards cover and gets to the other end.
  • 15.1SGopal to VShankar

    The googly, Shankar does not pick it, he looks to hit it through the off side but it goes off the inner half through mid-wicket for a run.
  • Shreyas Gopal is back into the attack.
  • 14.7JUnadkat to MPandey

    Off cutter outside off, Manish looks to drive it on the off side but misses. 12 runs and a wicket off the over. An expensive one but that wicket has sweetened the over.
  • 14.6JUnadkat to MPandey

    Beautiful drive but straight to the fielder at mid off. Full outside off, Pandey drives it hard but straight to the fielder.
  • 14.5JUnadkat to MPandey

    Wide! Unadkat tries to welcome Manish with a bouncer. It bounces too high and has been signalled as a wide.
  • Manish Pandey is the new batsman in.
  • 14.4JUnadkat to KWilliamson

    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?
