277/3 (20.0/20)
246/5 (20.0/20)
Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Mumbai Indians by 31 runs
Phew! It was a spectacle like no other in Hyderabad, and the crowd certainly got their money's worth, more importantly with Pat Cummins's brigade emerging victorious. Next up on Thursday, the 28th of March, Rajasthan will be in action as Sanju Samson and Co. take on Rishabh Pant's Delhi. Rajasthan will look to make it two wins out of two, while Delhi will be on the hunt for their first win of the season. The game will commence at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT), but as always, our build-up will begin much sooner. See you then. Cheers!
Abhishek Sharma is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his scintillating display of batting, scoring 63 runs off 23 balls. He begins by saying that he got a lot of confidence from the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He says that the message is clear to keep going and express yourself. Adds that he was pretty clear in his head to just hit and punish the poor deliveries. He thinks that he finally got a perfect batting position at number 3 and states he is trying to express himself in every game. On being asked about his bowling, he says he rather bowls in the nets more than the batting. Ends up by saying that it was overall a good performance by the boys.
Hyderabad's captain Pat Cummins starts by saying that it was an insane game. Mentions that it felt like they were finding boundaries whenever they wanted and it was good to finish on the winning side. Feels that in the Indian T20 League, they have played in front of big crowds and to see Abhishek Sharma play with freedom was good to watch. Shares that they wanted to play positively with the option of Impact player available and score aggressively. States that the cutters helped in the last phase. Ends by saying that the crowd was very loud and it was amazing.
Time for the presentation ceremony...
Travis Head is in for a flash interview. He says that it's a good feeling and adds it's a powerful group and he enjoyed it overall. He adds they wanted to go aggressive likewise the previous game and with someone like Klaasen in the side, it's a great luxury. States that he was pleased to play shots all across the ground. Mentions that Mumbai too, has the requisite firepower in the batting but he feels that 277 was way too much on the board in the end.
The skipper of Mumbai, Hardik Pandya says that the wicket was good but doesn't matter how good the wicket is, 277 is something to appreciate the opposition. Adds it was tough for the bowlers and says in hindsight they have got a young bowling line up. Adds they could have been more precise in executing their plans. Appreciates the batters and says that everyone looked good with the bat and states they just need to get a few things correct here and there. Says it was a great opportunity for the young Kwena Maphaka and adds that he has got a big heart, but he just needs some more game time to unleash his talent.
Earlier in the game, it was Hardik Pandya who called it right and inserted Hyderabad into bat. What followed was something Hardik Pandya and Co. would not have envisaged in the wildest of their dreams. Having been dropped on 5, Travis Head set out on a leather hunt and made Mumbai pay dearly for it. Abhishek Sharma joined the party and broke Head's record 18-ball fastest fifty by a Hyderabad batter, getting there in just 16 balls. After the two southpaws were dismissed in their 60s, Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen joined hands, with the latter picking up where he left off in the last game. Klaasen was the aggressor of the two batters and unleashed a real assault on the Mumbai bowlers. His 34-ball 80 was laced with as many as 7 sixes, and his 116-run unbeaten stand with Markram took Hyderabad to 277, the highest-ever Indian T20 League total. On a night when the rest of the Mumbai bowlers went for more than 11 runs per over, Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers, going for just 36 runs from his four overs.
The heads would have dropped at the halfway mark, having conceded the highest-ever Indian T20 League total but a champion side like Mumbai did not back down and made a good fist of a mammoth run chase. The openers, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan came out firing and although their stay was short-lived, they had set the tone. Coming in at number 4, Tilak Varma forged an 84-run stand with Naman Dhir and ensured that the Mumbai innings did not lose steam. Despite the departure of Dhir, Varma carried on his merry way and soon got to his fifty. His dismissal came at an inopportune time and the woes for Mumbai started to compound from thereon. The boundaries became hard to come by and the required run rate kept rising. Tim David hit a few lusty blows with Hardik Pandya for company but in the end, it proved to be a mountain too steep to climb.
Despite the kind of total they had on the board, Hyderabad were unable to translate that momentum into their bowling effort. They were a bit wayward with their lines and lengths with the new ball and were taken to the cleaners by the Mumbai openers. Despite seeing the back of them in successive overs, Hyderabad failed to build on those twin scalps. Tilak Varma, in particular, threatened to take the game away from them, but the second strategic break which was taken by Mumbai, came at just the right time for the hosts. They were able to reassess their plans and resorted to taking the pace off and bowling it into the wicket to reap the rewards. Pat Cummins started it all by removing Varma, and Jaydev Unadkat and Bhuvenshwar Kumar continued from there to keep things quiet. Hyderabad never looked back since and tightened the screws to seal the deal to get their first points on the board.
What an incredible game we witnessed! Records tumbled left, right, and centre, but in the end, it was Hyderabad who clinched a remarkable victory in this absolute run fest. With this win, the streak of home teams winning their games in this year's Indian T20 League has extended to 8 matches. Coming to a couple of the records that were broken, as many as 38 sixes were hit and a total of 523 runs were scored, the most in a T20 game anywhere in the world.

Jaydev Unadkat To Hardik Pandya OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! The slower ball ploy has worked for Jaydev Unadkat, finally! Such an important wicket for Hyderabad as they see the back of the dangerous Hardik Pandya. Short, slow and outside off, Hardik Pandya stays on the back foot and looks to hoick it over long on. But in this process, he gets deceived by the slower pace of the ball and ends up slicing it straight down the throat of Heinrich Klaasen behind the wickets who takes a comfortable catch.

Oh, what an outstanding athleticism from Mayank Agarwal. A superhuman effort there in the deep. On the back of a length around off, Hardik Pandya slices the pull shot trying to clear the long on fence. Mayanka Agarwal patrolling the long on fence jumps in the air in time and throws the ball back in play before he goes beyond the fence. The third umpire confirms that he has flicked the ball into the field while being in the air. What a top effort. Agarwal gets attended to by the physio and he is fine to continue.

Pat Cummins To Tilak Varma OUT!
OUT! IN THE AIR AND GONE! How often have we seen that a break in play brings about a wicket? Instant impact for Pat Cummins on his return to the attack. Starts from over the wicket and bowls it on the back of a length, slower and outside off, Tilak Varma is made to reach out and he opts to hack it across the line instead of going through the off side. The ball comes off the upper half of the bat and it goes straight down the throat of Mayank Agarwal at long on who makes no mistake.
Strategic Break! Just when the Mumbai batters were raining absolute carnage, came Bhuvneshwar Kumar and stemmed the flow of runs by conceding just 5 runs off his over. But, overall, this has been a breathless run chase as the Mumbai batters have shown excellent resilience. Tilak Varma, the consistent component of the Mumbai team stands unbeaten on 64 along with the skipper Hardik Pandya. It is still a very, very long way to go as Mumbai need 96 off the last six overs. Let's see how the climax of this run-chase pans out. Pat Cummins, the Hyderabad skipper (2-0-25-1) is back into the attack now.

Strategic break!  Mumbai have come out firing in pursuit of a gigantic total of 278 runs. Naman Dhir and Tilak Varma have ensured that they are not too behind the required run rate. However, it is still a long way to go for Mumbai and Hyderabad will use this break to come up with better plans to stem the flow of runs. Like Mumbai, Hyderabad bowlers have been off with their lines and lengths and need to step up here to pull things back. Pat Cummins turns to Shahbaz Ahmed in search of a breakthrough.

Pat Cummins To Rohit Sharma OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Pat Cummins strikes in his first over and Mumbai have now lost both their openers in successive overs. Cummins bends his back and digs it in short, on middle, Rohit Sharma feasts on such deliveries but this gets big on him. Rohit gets cramped for room and fails to get the pull shot away as he would have liked. It goes high in the air towards deep backward square leg where Abhishek Sharma runs in and takes a well-judged catch. Hyderabad will be relived as will be Abdul Samad as the drop of Rohit Sharma does not cost them much.

Shahbaz Ahmed To Ishan Kishan OUT!
OUT! IN THE AIR AND GONE! The gamble from Pat Cummins to introduce a left-arm spinner against Ishan Kishan has paid off big time! Shahbaz stays around the wicket and drags his length back a touch, on a nagging length, on off, Ishan Kishan goes for another slog sweep but the ball is not full enough for him to get the distance. Skies it high in the air and it goes only as far as deep mid-wicket where Aiden Markram settles under it and takes it to his right. But what a sensational quickfire initiation from Ishan Kishan to this mammoth run chase. He departs on 34 off just 13.
