End of Over No.19 unrisers Hyderabad 201/5 This Over (14 runs)

11:59pm Well, Rashid Khan has just revealed he has five variants of the legbreak. In case you wanted to lose more sleep about this genius. Thanks for joining us for this sensational game. On behalf of Ankur and Thilak – good night!

Rashid: Thanks to the almighty. I just try my best to be positive every game, in every department. I think that was the plan [to Buttler] as I’ve got him early previously. So I just bowled in good areas and saw how it goes. I just tried my best to mix up my five legspinners. I realised it wasn’t a wicket where there’ll be too much turn. Yes, [I have] five different legspins, with different actions and grip. [On his batting] My coaches have given me a lot of confidence in the nets that I’m capable of hitting it anywhere.

Rashid Khan is the Man of the Match.

Williamson: It certainly wasn’t easy. A very tough game. There are some areas we want to touch up on. I suppose [I bat] behind them. hopefully they can continue like that. We needed many parts to fire to chase near 200 and it was a good experience for us. [Rashid] against Buttler was the idea. It was great that it worked.

Warner: One thing that inspires me is the local fans. We got off to a good start. Serious innings there by Sanju. Full credit to him. We had to come out and put on a good start. He allowed himself time and the wicket got better. We didn’t actually think it would be a 200 wicket. We have played on similar wickets where you bowl that hard length it gets hard. Me and Jonny have partnered really well since Kolkata. There have been a few hiccups with him trying to get off the mark, I have been hogging the strike a little bit.
We know this ground so well, we know the dimensions. Last couple of sessions there’s been a breeze from behind one of the stands, tonight there wasn’t.

Rahane: I think first of all, we thought 190+ was very goood. The wicket was stopping a bit and we were aiming to get 150+. Credit to Sunrisers, the momentum they got in the Powerplay. When someone like Warner bats like that, it’s very less margins for the bowler. They didn’t lose momentum throughout. When he got out, Vijay Shankar batted well too. [Sanju]’s been fantastic for us. We all know how talented he is. I’m sure he’s also hurt but he’ll go miles. Consistency is the key for him.


Shahbaz: “Rashid you beautyyyyyyyyyyyy? I have more hope on you than Pathan. Love you”

Ashok : “What a superstar this guy Rashid Khan is…Sure to rule the cricketing world in the years to come”

Amit: “The six runs on the last ball and not four runs on the last ball (of 19th over) brings a positive run rate for Sunrisers and better position in the point table “

Hk: “Watching Rashid Khan score the winning runs make me so glad.What a lad.”

11:38pm Well, who’da thunk? Rahane says Samson and he were looking to get 150+ at the start, and that makes sense doesn’t it? The pitch looked so two-paced until about halfway into Royals’ innings. Something switched around there and it turned into a complete run fest. And when you have a pitch like that, and you have Warner at the top, you’re not too badly placed. A blitzkrieg from him again and a lovely follow up from Shankar to take Sunrisers to a big win. Their highest successful run chase.

18.6 6 Archer to Rashid Khan whips it over the square leg boundary! Oh what a shot! He hit one like this against KKR last season and repeats it. Step back into the crease, weight transfer towards point as this yorker full ball comes in at middle stump, and he uses the pace to clip it with fast wrists to seal the win with six balls to spare SIX
18.5 4 Archer to Rashid Khan shot! Superb thinking under pressure from Rashid. Takes a big step back into the crease and sets up low with a low backlift. Gets a full one at off stump and creams it past extra cover FOUR
18.5 1 Archer to Rashid Khan loses his radar! Small margins. Full and slanted down leg side. Rashid sets up for the helicopter again. Misses again 1 wide

One wicket here, oh boy…

18.4 1 Archer to Pathan oh superb bowling. Bowls the yorker at will. Just in the corridor. Gets the front leg out of the way but chops it off the under-edge into the gully region 1 run
18.3 1 Archer to Rashid Khan misses on the yorker again. Once again only one. Rashid sets up for the helicopter, but this is too quick. Mistimed bunt towards Stokes at long-on 1 run
18.2 1 Archer to Pathan just misses on the yorker but Pathan misses out too. Low full toss outside off, scythed to third man’s right 1 run
18.1 0 Archer to Pathan yorker right up at off stump. Can’t do anything other than drill that back towards mid-off no run

Right, 12 off 12. Here’s Jofra.

End of Over No.18 unrisers Hyderabad 187/5 This Over (8 runs)

17.6 2 Unadkat to Rashid Khan short of a length outside off, pulls to deep midwicket’s right and comes back for the second. Long boundary there 2 runs
17.5 1 Unadkat to Pathan slower ball, short outside off. Spanked off the back foot but can’t beat Rahane’s dive at extra cover 1 run
17.4 2 Unadkat to Pathan falls short of long-on running to his right! Pathan was outfoxed there. Slower ball cutting across him outside off. Looked to slug that but got it off the bottom 2 runs
17.4 1 Unadkat to Pathan slower bouncer, dug in too short. Doesn’t even need to duck at that 1 wide

Back over the wicket

17.3 1 Unadkat to Rashid Khan slower ball at a length outside off, drives with the turn away, to sweeper 1 run
17.2 0 Unadkat to Rashid Khan slower ball, dug in back of a length outside off. Past Rashid’s attempted cut no run

Baskar: “I don’t feel Archer has done any justice to his fame at IPL yet. A couple of games at bench for him might help the guys waiting outside.”

17.1 1 Unadkat to Pathan short of a length, wide outside off. Cut to sweeper cover 1 run

End of Over No.17 unrisers Hyderabad 179/5 This Over (10 runs)

According to ESPNcricinfo’s Forecaster, Sunrisers Hyderabad are still firm favourites to ace this chase. Shreyas Gopal’s last over had brought Sunrisers’ win probability down from 91.66% to 78.86% at the end of the 16th over. After Jofra’s, however, it’s back up at 93%.

16.6 0 Archer to Rashid Khan full on off stump, mistimed tap back to the bowler no run
16.6 1 Archer to Rashid Khan bouncer too short. Rashid is ducking rapidly at this, but it’s Buttler with the real work. One handed leap to hold on to that. It was sailing 1 wide
16.5 1 Archer to Pathan short of a length in the corridor, looks to pull, mistimes completely. Sliced over the umpire but safe 1 run
16.4 0 Archer to Pathan yorker, 151kph, right at off stump. Superb. Yusuf does well to get bat on it no run

Matt: “@Prashanth: I understand the appeal of Sodhi, but I feel as if the current four overseas players for RR are pretty much undroppable. They’re in a different class.”

16.3 0 Archer to Pathan yorker just outside off, looks to run it down, beaten no run
16.2 6 Archer to Pathan what is fear, indeed?! Yusuf Pathan, calm as. Short of a length at off stump, gets nicely behind the line and swipes magnificently to send this flat and over the square leg boundary SIX
16.1 2 Archer to Pathan yorker length wide outside off, reaches out and jams it to third man’s right 2 runs

Anshul: “No no no no!!! SRH don’t choke here.. please don’t.. just 31 off 25 please” — Here is Jofra.

End of Over No.16 unrisers Hyderabad 169/5 This Over (4 runs)

A quiet little spell of 3-27 from Gopal in the middle of all the carnage.

15.6 1 Gopal to Pathan what is fear? Yusuf with a big stride down the pitch and an almighty drill down to long-off 1 run

A slip for Yusuf. Will that intimidate him?

15.5 1 Gopal to Rashid Khan short of a length and in at leg stump, gets on the back foot and clips this through square leg 1 run
15.4 W Gopal to Pandey he’s got him! First ball after the break and a celebration that isn’t in the same class as the ball he’s just bowled. Gopal sends off his state captain. This skids on from outside off. Pandey is stabbing away from the body for the legbreak as he’s caught dead in front of off stump OUT
MK Pandey lbw b Gopal 1 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Dhaman: “Pandey for some reason takes upon lot of pressure when he plays for SRH and India…but he will be highest run scorer for India A and domestic games”

Anil: “@Aj: Don’t expect Samson to hit a ton everyday. He starts slow, and if he is taken before finding his feet, then RR go timbers. You need Steven Smith there!”

Prashanth: “Royals need to find a way to get Ish Sodhi in. Him and Jofra can deliver 8 quality overs. Right now, their Indian bowing contingent is pedestrian. “

The time-out’s been taken

15.3 W Gopal to Shankar taken at long-on! Wow. Another wicket here and we might still have a game. Gopal delivers. And he often has for them, without too much of the spotlight. This is a slider, full on middle stump. Shankar wants to pump him over long-on but is done by the extra slide off the surface. Drags it off the inside half to the fielder. But what an innings, it seems he’s making a statement every time he comes out on a field these days OUT
V Shankar c sub (P Chopra) b Gopal 35 (27m 15b 1×4 3×6) SR: 233.33
15.2 1 Gopal to Pandey length at off, defended to extra cover’s left 1 run
15.1 1 Gopal to Shankar length outside off, looks to drive through cover, gets it to midwicket off the inside half 1 run

End of Over No.15 unrisers Hyderabad 165/3 This Over (12 runs)

Aj: “This might be a hot take but I don’t think this royals batting line up needs Steve Smith, could do with the extra overseas bowler ” — Oshane Thomas is the option. Ish Sodhi would be too much like Gopal.

14.6 0 Unadkat to Pandey well bowled. An offcutter in the corridor from around. Pandey swishes at it and is beaten no run

mavR: “When and how did Vijay Shankar overtake Manish Pandey not just in Indian squad , but SRH also . This has been a fascinating rise .” — Unadkat goes around.

14.5 0 Unadkat to Pandey full outside off, gets his front leg into the leg side and drives straight to mid-off no run

vishal pawar: “@Varun, I would like to add the name of Mayank Agrawal as well apart from these two who have grown leaps and bounds in last three years. “

14.5 1 Unadkat to Pandey past the hook but also above the head, deems leg umpire. Bouncer has some steep rise on it but it’s in the batsman’s favour by the end of it 1 wide
