  • So, a lopsided game was on offer tonight, not something that we like. All the teams have played a game each now and the ones batting second came out victorious. On that stat, we take your leave but don't forget to join us for game 5 - Chennai vs Kolkata in the former's den on Tuesday at 2000 IST. Hasta La Vista. Cheers!
  • Man of the Match, Shikhar Dhawan says he enjoys playing a long innings as it benefits him and the team. Reckons that he is just implementing the things he's learned with the national team here and is happy he's able to pull it off. States that the fielding is one of their strong suits, which will help them as the tournament progresses.
  • Kane Williamson says his guys were brilliant all around and did exceptionally well with the ball. Adds all the bowlers played their part, took wickets and also the catches which was important. Mentions that the short ball plan was more due to the surface than the batsmen, but is happy either way it worked out. Applauds Shikhar Dhawan for his outstanding batting and executing his plans well.
  • Ajinkya Rahane says they thought the score they had on the board was low, as 150-160 would have been a good score. Credits Hyderabad for doing well with the ball. Adds that he and Samson got off to a good start, but then lost the plot in the middle overs. States that they needed partnerships which never came and that dropped catch, which in essence cost them the match, is something which is a part of the game, so he takes everything in his stride. Ends by saying that they will learn from their mistakes and work on it.
  • The only thing that didn't work for the hosts was the promotion of Wriddhiman Saha. That's the only thing that can be faulted, otherwise everything else was on song. The skipper lent a good hand to Shikhar Dhawan and together they amassed a 121-run stand, which also happens to be their best for the second wicket in the history of the tournament. The duo saw its side starting the season with a superb win without any fuss. Stick with us for the presentation.
  • A blockbuster start to the season for Hyderabad, clinical and dominating as it gets. Firstly, their bowlers with a disciplined effort restricted the opposition to a scanty 125 and then when they came out to bat, it was Shikhar Dhawan who just stole the show with an unbeaten 77, studded with 13 fours and a maximum. He was dropped on 0 by Ajinkya Rahane and boy, he made them pay big time as he just tore them apart. Not sure if that dropped chance would have made much of a difference but at least the mockery that the southpaw made, could have been avoided.
  • 15.5FOUR! Dhawan finishes it off in style! Nicely done. Back of a length around off, Shikhar stays back and connects the pull perfectly. He muscles it over mid-wicket and sends it across the rope for a boundary. With that, HYDERABAD WIN BY 9 WICKETS AND 25 BALLS TO SPARE!
  • 15.4Fires it well outside off, Dhawan shuffles across to squeeze it on the off side, but once again, doesn't make any connection.
  • 15.3Back of a length outside off, a mistimed slap down the ground, towards mid off. The fielder cuts it off by moving to his left.
  • 15.2Good slower delivery from Kulkarni. Takes the pace off it deceiving Dhawan, who is early into the pull shot and misses it completely.
  • 15.1Bowls it very wide outside off, on a good length, Shikhar reaches out for it but can't make any connection.
  • Dhawal Kulkarni to have a go with the ball again. Should be the last over of the game.
  • 14.6Stays back and keeps it out off the back foot. 3 needed off 30. 123/1
  • 14.5Flighted delivery pitched up around off, Kane goes across, gets low and then sweeps it behind square on the leg side.
  • 14.4Finds the gap this time. Has the width to work with, so he cuts it past point for a single.
  • 14.3Short and flat outside off, cut hard towards point.
  • 14.2Plays with the spin as it's pitched full on leg, Kane wrists it through mid-wicket and another run is taken.
  • 14.1Tossed up delivery around off, spinning away from the batsman, Dhawan drives it down to long on and crosses over.
  • 13.6Angling back in on a good length, Dhawan moves inside the line and tucks it down towards fine leg for a single. Just 6 needed to win now. 120/1
  • 13.5Short outside off, punched off the back foot through the covers for one.
  • 13.4Moving away from outside off, on a shorter length, Williamson slaps this hard through the covers. It would have gone to the boundary, if not for a good save in the deep. Two runs taken.
  • 13.3Comes down the track to this shorter length ball, and then blocks it.
  • 13.2Back of a length, doesn't rise as much, but Williamson goes through with the pull anyway. Hits it through mid-wicket and comes back for the second.
  • 13.1Short of a good length slanting across, Williamson opens the bat face and dabs it to gully.
  • Jaydev Unadkat back into the attack.
  • 12.6FOUR BYES! Tossed up outside off, it's spinning away, Dhawan attempts the big cover drive, but the ball beats everything. The outside edge, the keeper and the fielder in the deep. A boundary results. 114/1
  • 12.5Spinning in, Dhawan looks to get bat on it but fails to do so. Is rapped on the thigh pad.
  • 12.4Slightly short and outside off, chopped away square on the off side.
  • 12.3Plays with the spin, towards square leg. The bowler himself runs to the ball, which allows the batsmen to come back for the second.
  • 12.2Plays this towards the covers but it's a dot ball.
  • 12.1FOUR! A gift for Dhawan from Short. Bowls a half-tracker on off, the left-hander uses the depth of the crease to camp back and pulls it aerially across the mid-wicket fence for a boundary. Brings up the 100-run stand with that.
  • D'Arcy Short brought on to bowl.
  • 11.6Short ball on the stumps, it's pulled away, on the leg side, for a single. 104/1
  • 11.6FOUR! Full delivery outside off, Shikhar Dhawan leans into the shot and elegantly drives it through mid off for a boundary.
  • 11.5Driven through the covers by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 11.4Short in length, Dhawan swivels and pulls it away on the leg side for a single.
  • 11.3Drives this full delivery towards mid off. No run taken.
  • 11.2Bit short in length, around off, Williamson plays it behind square on the off side and sets off. There is a direct hit at the striker's end but Dhawan is in by that time.
  • 11.1Good length delivery on the off stick, taps it away into the off side for nought.
  • Ben Laughlin back on.
  • 10.6Short ball on middle stumps, Williamson goes deep inside the crease and pulls it through to deep mid-wicket for a single. 96/1
  • 10.5FOUR! BOOM! Sends it back where it comes from! What a hit. Tossed up, right in Williamson's arc and he murders this. Hammers it straight back over the bowler as the ball doesn't even take a second to get to the fence.
  • 10.4Leg break around off, Kane pushes it towards cover.
  • 10.3Safe! Told you, didn't I? Looped up outside leg, Dhawan kneels down for the sweep shot but misses and is hit on the front pad. Big appeal goes up, the umpire remains unmoved. Rajasthan, however, probably in a desperate attempt, decide to take the review. It goes upstairs and replays confirm it pitched outside leg. Everything ends there. Leg bye taken.
  • Review. For an lbw appeal against Shikhar Dhawan. Not sure why it's taken, it's clearly pitched outside leg. The replays will confirm that.
  • 10.2Touch short and close to off, it's forced through the cover area for one.
  • 10.1Tossed up on off, Kane gets to the pitch and drives it to mid on.
  • 9.6Length ball aiming the top of off stump, this time Williamson offers a pull in front of square leg for a run. 89/1
  • 9.5Swivels and pulls it along the ground, to deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 9.4Not out! Good call from Kane Williamson. His partner survives because of him. Dhawan works this towards mid-wicket and calls for the run. Sets off too, but Kane sends him back in time. There's a direct hit at the keeper's end but Shikhar is back inside the crease in time.
  • Direct hit! Shikhar Dhawan is the man in the spotlight but he looks confident he's in. Let's see now...
  • 9.3FOUR! Classy from the southpaw! Full ball, outside off again, little bit of width and that's all Dhawan needs. He drives it through the covers and gets another boundary to his name.
  • 9.2Fuller in length, outside the line of off stump, driven to mid off.
  • 9.1FOUR! 29th Indian T20 League fifty for Shikhar Dhawan! Angling across on a back of a length, Dhawan hangs back and fiercely cuts it through point. Through the gap and away to the boundary line. Superb knock, he's seeing his team home here.
  • 8.6A swipe across the line from Dhawan, through to deep mid-wicket for a single. Hyderabad need 47 to win off 66 balls. 79/1
  • 8.5The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot. One run added to the total.
  • 8.4Makes use of the feet to get close to the pitch of the ball and blocks.
  • 8.3Shortens the length on this occasion, Williamson backs away and only manages a punch to the left of the bowler.
  • 8.2Gopal gives this some air around off, Shikhar kneels down and sweeps it away through square leg for a single.
  • 8.1Quicker through the air and shorter in length, Kane eases it down to long on to rotate strike.
  • 7.6Played to the point region by the batsman. End of another good over for Hyderabad. 75/1
  • 7.5Short and wide, outside off, Dhawan throws his bat at this and misses.
  • 7.5Wide! Well outside off, across the tramline, no trouble for the umpire to signal wide.
  • 7.4Waits for the ball to come to him before opening the face and running it down to third man for one.
  • 7.3Safe! Outside off, Dhawan taps it towards cover and both batsmen set off. There is a direct hit at the striker's end and an appeal goes up, but Williamson is well inside the crease. Did well to drag his bat through.
  • 7.2FOUR! Poor line again. Stokes sprays it down the leg side, Dhawan just helps it on its way and finds the fence, beating the fielder in the deep. All too easy for the hosts so far.
  • 7.1FOUR! Banged in short first up and made to pay the price immediately. Dhawan rises and with all his might, pulls it over the mid-wicket region for a boundary.
  • Ben Stokes introduced into the bowling attack.
  • 6.6Spinning in on middle and leg, Dhawan plays with the spin and turns it away into the leg side. Single to the scoreboard. 64/1
  • 6.5The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball.
  • 6.4Steps out of the crease and knocks it to long on for one run.
  • 6.3Tossed right up there, on off stump, Kane prods forward and meets it with the full face of the bat.
  • 6.2That was in the air for a good while, but luckily for Dhawan, it falls safely. Goes for the big heave again, but gets a top edge which falls safely in the square leg region. Single taken.
  • 6.1FOUR! Not the ideal start for the spinner. Flatter, shorter and on off, Dhawan goes deep inside the crease and muscles the pull over mid-wicket. Nobody out there in the deep, so that will go across the rope easily.
  • Shreyas Gopal brought on to bowl.
  • Time for Strategic break.
  • 5.6FOUR! Superbly placed! Short and wide, Williamson cracks this square on the off side for a boundary. 57/1
  • 5.5The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot through square leg. They pick up a single.
  • 5.4Good length delivery around off, it's patted down in front of cover for no run.
  • 5.3FOUR! The runs are coming for Hyderabad anyhow, even if it's not off the bat. Bouncer down the leg side, Dhawan looks to pull but gets it off the gloves. It lobs over Buttler and then it goes behind to the fence for a boundary.
  • 5.2Dabs it away with the full face of the bat on the off side and gets a single.
  • 5.1Caught but it won't count. Williamson moves across the line to pull it away but ends up hitting it straight to mid on where the catch is taken.
  • 5.1No ball! But it isn't one, the umpire has got this wrong. A lot of the heel was behind the line. Landed short outside off, Dhawan taps it down on the off side with soft hands. Free Hit coming up...
  • The Aussie needs to come up with something good here...
  • Ben Laughlin to bowl now.
  • 4.6Hangs back onto his back foot and keeps it out safely. 45/1
  • 4.5Tossed up, on off, not much spin on it as Williamson plays it back to the bowler.
  • 4.4Stays back and knocks it down to long on for one.
  • 4.3FOUR! Consecutive boundaries for Dhawan! He's making the away side pay for that early dropped chance. Flat and short, outside off, he slaps this through the gap in the covers and picks up another boundary.
  • 4.2FOUR! Flat, short and attacking the stumps, Dhawan has no qualms about putting this away. He rocks back and pulls it powerfully through square leg for a boundary.
  • 4.1On the stumps, Dhawan looks to push it away from his body but ends up getting an inside edge onto his pads.
  • Krishnappa Gowtham is into the attack.
  • 3.6Worked away through mid-wicket off the back foot. Two fielders go for it, end up misfielding it, which allows the batsmen to come back for the second. 36/1
  • 3.5SIX! Showing his class, is the evergreen Kane Williamson. What a player! Bumper on the stumps, the Hyderabad skipper moves inside the line, positions himself well and nails the pull over square leg to perfection. Rockets into the stands and picks up a biggie.
  • 3.4Touch straighter in line, on middle and off, gets behind the line of the ball and blocks.
  • 3.3FOUR! Scintillating shot from Kane Williamson! Picks up the length early as it's pitched a bit short, so he rises on his toes and cuts it beautifully past point to send it all the way.
  • 3.2Shortish in length again, outside off, blocked yet again.
  • 3.1Back of a length delivery, around off, Kane stands firm and blocks it with a straight blade.
  • 2.6Drags the length back on this occasion, forces the left-hander to defend it down on the track. 24/1
  • 2.6Wide! Way, way, way, way, way down the leg side. Dhawan doesn't even think about fiddling with that. I wouldn't have either to be honest, can't blame him. Clear wide signalled by the umpire.
  • 2.5SIX! Typical Shikhar Dhawan, that. Short ball, outside off, Dhawan knows exactly what he's going to do here. He stands tall and cuts it hard over third man and clears the fence with absolute ease. It's the first biggie of the night, believe it or not.
  • 2.4Marginally ahead of a length, quite close to off, cut hard, but straight to the man at point.
  • 2.3Play and a miss! Slightly fullish in length and moving away from off, Shikhar looks to slash this hard, but fails to make any kind of connection.
  • 2.2FOUR! Full and outside off, Dhawan crouches a little low and crunches the drive through the covers, for a boundary this time. Good shot.
  • 2.1Fuller in length and in the channel outside off, driven through the covers for a couple.
  • 1.6Shortish in length and angling in, Dhawan pulls it along the ground to fine leg and takes a single. 11/1
  • 1.5FOUR! Edged and over! Not where he exactly intended to play, but he'll accept the runs regardless. Short ball, cramped for room again but he flashes hard at this one. It takes a thick edge and flies over the slip cordon for a boundary.
  • 1.4Landed on a length around off, it straightens off the seam as Dhawan walks down the track. It beats the outside edge and goes into the keeper's gloves.
  • Kane Williamson is in at No. 3.
  • 1.3OUT! First strike for Rajasthan! Unadkat provides the breakthrough. Fuller on off, Saha looks to clear the infield but doesn't time it well. Lofts it high in the air, towards mid off, where Laughlin backpedals a bit and takes a good catch. The costliest Indian player this season lets out a huge roar and is all pumped up. Can Rajasthan pick up a few more inside the first six overs?
  • 1.3Wide! Short ball on middle and leg, too short and Saha has nothing to do with that.
  • 1.2Just ahead of a length, slanting away from around off, it's defended down on the off side from within the crease.
  • 1.1FOUR! Superb shot! Length delivery on off, Wriddhiman Saha leans ahead, swings across the line and lofts it nicely over mid-wicket. Clean strike, sends it across the fence for a boundary.
  • Jaydev Unadkat will bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6Dropped! That too, by one of the safest fielders around. Shortish just outside off, Dhawan is a little cramped for room as he plays the cut shot. Edges it behind towards first slip where Rahane is positioned. At a comfortable height, you'd usually back him to take it, but he puts it down somehow. 1/0
  • 0.5Short ball, well outside off, the southpaw doesn't have anything to do with that.
  • 0.4Full delivery outside off, with a hint of inswing, Dhawan drives this back down the ground, but can't beat mid off.
  • 0.3Full and wide outside off, Dhawan goes for the big booming drive through the covers but mistimes it in the same region, towards the fielder.
  • 0.2Off the mark with that. Fraction straight in line, Saha turns this with the wrists towards fine leg and crosses over.
  • 0.1Short of a good length around off, shaping away, Saha opens the face of the bat and taps it down in front of backward point.
  • We are back for the chase. A score the hosts would back themselves to hunt down. It will be Shikhar Dhawan and Wriddhiman Saha to open the innings for Hyderabad, while Dhawal Kulkarni will take the ball first up. A slip in place for him, let's go...
