Patidar hit four fours and two sixes in his 38-ball innings, while Maxwell hit three fours and two sixes in his 24-ball innings. Dinesh Karthik scored an unbeaten 30 runs in the last over in an unbeaten eight-ball knock, hitting four sixes and a four. He hit three consecutive sixes in the last over against Fazlhaq Farooqui, playing his first match. The team scored 25 runs in this over.
Chasing the target, Hyderabad had a very poor start. The team lost the wickets of both the openers in the first over itself. Captain Kane Williamson (nil) was run out on the first ball without coming on strike. Maxwell bowled Abhishek Sharma in this over without opening the account. Aiden Markram eased the pressure by hitting a four and a six off Maxwell’s first two deliveries in the third over.
In the ninth over by Wanindu Hasaranga, Markram played the ball into Kohli’s hands. Markram made 21 runs in 27 balls and shared a 50-run partnership with Tripathi. Tripathi (58) hit two fours against Shahbaz in the 10th over, while Pooran hit a six off Harshal Patel. However, he failed to read Hasranga’s googly in the 13th over and was caught by Shahbaz and returned to the pavilion.
Tripathi then hit a six against Mohammad Siraj to complete his half-century in 32 balls. But after that the team’s batsmen could not bear the pressure of the required run-rate. In the 15th over of the innings, Jagdish became the third victim of Suchit Hasranga. Shashank Singh opened the account with a six in this over but Hazlewood turned the match towards his team by dismissing Tripathi and Karthik Tyagi (nil) in two consecutive balls.
In the next over, Hasranga dismissed Shashank Singh (8) and Umran Malik (0) in successive deliveries, taking the team’s score from 114 for five to 114 for nine. Harshal wrapped up Hyderabad’s innings by dismissing Bhuvneshwar (eight) in the last over. Hasaranga took 5 wickets for 18 runs and this is his best performance in T20.
