Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bengaluru by 25 runs

Commentary

6:08 PM IST Right then, what a start we have had to the new week in the 2024 Indian T20 League and this game has set up the rest of the week brilliantly. Next up, table-toppers Rajasthan travel to the eastern part of India to face second-place Kolkata at the Eden Gardens in what is expected to be a huge clash. That game will be played on Tuesday, 16 April in Kolkata and will begin at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT). However, you can join us a lot sooner for the build-up. Till then, take care and goodbye!
6:06 PM IST Travis Head is the Player of the Match for his blistering ton. Head says that a nice shower and some food after the first innings and says that they were able to drag things back after the Powerplay but Dinesh Karthik played a brilliant innings at the end. Mentions that the pitch played much better than expected and the power they have in the batting lineup, they could just keep going. On batting alongside, Abhishek Sharma, he says that they complement each other well and the way he takes on the spinners early on is brilliant. Ends by saying that the way he moved and struck the ball in this game was pretty good.
6:05 PM IST Pat Cummins, the captain of Hyderabad jokingly says that he wishes he was a batter. A wonderful game of cricket and says that the same happened against Mumbai and he thought it wouldn't happen again but he was proven wrong. Says that when you bowl an over of seven or eight runs, you can have a big impact on the game. Also states that at Chinnaswamy, even if it looks dry, it has given some wonderful surfaces to bat on. Adds that the batters are enjoying every bit and playing with all the freedom keeping smiles on their faces. Ends up by saying he is delighted as they have four wins now.
5:58 PM IST The Presentation ceremony...
5:57 PM IST Earlier in the game, Faf du Plessis won the toss and finally got his wish to chase but the decision to bowl first quickly turned into a nightmare as the Hyderabad openers but on a 100-plus stand in just over 7 overs before Abhishek Sharma finally got out. However, it was Travis Head who was just in a punishing mood and went on to score the fourth-fastest century in the Indian T20 League off just 39 balls. The likes of Heinrich Klaasen and Aiden Markram did a fine job with the former notching up another quickfire fifty after which Abdul Samad laid the finishing touches with a 10-ball-37 and took his team to 287 big runs. On the bowling front, there wasn't much to talk about but Will Jacks did bowl well in the Powerplay and Lockie Ferguson got a couple of wickets but was highly expensive like the rest of the bowlers. In reply, Bengaluru fought well but fell short by 25 runs and surprisingly not even a single bowler across both sides went for less than 10 runs an over, astonishing stat given the fact that 13 bowlers bowled in the game.
5:52 PM IST Heinrich Klaasen, one of the stars of Hyderabad's batting is in for a chat. Klaasen says that it was unbelievable stuff from Travis Head and for him to come in, he had some time and played sensibly at the other end and got a few bad deliveries that got him going. Adds that he isn't training a lot and just had one session in the few days and is more focused on standing still and keeping things simple and is happy that it is coming off. Mentions that they were a bit lucky a few games ago and knew that the ball was going to fly and the opposition too batted really well.
5:51 PM IST Faf du Plessis, the captain of Bengaluru says that the pitch was a proper T20 track and credits the batters to take it close. On being asked about the bowling, he says it is tough and they have tried a few things but the plans haven't been working clearly. He says that the game of cricket is tough when you have backs against the wall but there's no way to hide at all. Adds that as a batting lineup, they have been doing pretty well and just keeping up with the way the game has evolved with the scores teams are putting up. It feels like the mind's gonna explode after back-to-back defeats and says it's a tough hill to climb ahead and ends up by saying that they will comeback with the same intensity in the next game.
5:48 PM IST Bengaluru suffer their sixth loss in seven games and remain rooted at the bottom of the table but this just goes to show how underwhelming they have been with the ball. The batters gave it their all but 288 to get in 120 legal deliveries is almost unthinkable. Both Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis started aggressively and got a plethora of boundaries away but Kohli got out in the thirties after which Faf went on a rampage but the next three batters that came in couldn't even get into double figures. Faf eventually got out on 62 after which Dinesh Karthik took matters into his hands and just about kept Bengaluru with a 1% chance of a win. He made a sensational 83 off 35 balls but got out in the 19th over and even Anuj Rawat's little cameo in the final over wasn't nearly enough to get them that crucial win.
5:47 PM IST Defending a massive total of 287 runs, Hyderabad couldn't pick up a wicket in the Powerplay and were a bit unlucky with the edges and ended up conceding 79 runs. It was then Mayank Markande who knocked over Virat Kohli right after the Powerplay and then skipper Pat Cummins got a couple of quick wickets to hand Hyderabad the advantage. With 5 wickets already in the bag, the visitors couldn't capitalize and seemed nervous in the death overs. Cummins did provide one more breakthrough but they kept conceding boundaries at an alarming rate and it was T Natarajan who finally got DK in the penultimate over that sealed the game. Overall, not the best bowling performance but there were some positives, especially the way Cummins bowled.
5:44 PM IST My, my! That is some of the best if not the very best hitting you will see overall in a T20 game and close to 550 runs were scored in the match, 549 to be exact but ultimately, Hyderabad just had too many on the board. Also, a lot of records tumbled as this has become officially the highest-scoring T20 game ever, a total of 79 boundaries hit (43 fours and 36 sixes) which just seems absurd to even hear about, and also the most number of 50-plus stands in a T20 game (7). The crowd inside the stadium did get their money's worth but the home team lost which was a big bummer for them.

FOUR! 549 runs in a T20 game! A true run-fest here at Chinnaswamy and it's the team in orange that ends up on the winning side, well, by a margin of 25 runs.

Bengaluru lose their sixth game now and they are in deep trouble in their journey ahead in this competition.

T Natarajan to Dinesh Karthik, 6 runs

SIX! There's no stopping to DK and that's hit the roof of the Chinnaswamy! MASSIVE! Misses the yorker and ends up bowling into the arc of the batter. Dinesh Karthik lifts it high and handsome over deep mid-wicket and gets a massive 108-meter six, the longest of the season so far.

5:12 PM IST Strategic Break! It's that kind of a run chase that despite of racking up 70 runs odd in the last three overs, the asking rate is hovering around 18 and 19 rpo. Then comes Pat Cummins, the Hyderabad skipper and not only does he take a wicket but just concedes 6 off it. Dinesh Karthik has been in a ridiculously fine knock but due to a dramatic collapse in mid-overs, Bengaluru find themselves in shambles. They still need 101 in the last 5 overs.

Mayank Markande to Mahipal Lomror, no run

Another big appeal for LBW but the umpire remains unmoved. The ball seemed pretty adjacent but there might have been some glove involved. Pat Cummins has taken the review though. This is bowled fuller on middle and turning back in, Mahipal Lomror looks to get inside the line and sweep it away but misses and on the first replay the third umpire concludes that there is no bat or glove. Actually, it was the googly and it turned away a fair bit and Ball Tracking shows wickets as umpire's call. Lomror survives!

Pat Cummins to Saurav Chauhan, no run

OUT! LBW! A confident appeal for LBW and this time the Umpire raises his finger! And it's the Hyderabad skipper with another breakthrough. This is darted with absolute precision at 148 clicks on the line of the stumps, tailing in from the middle, just ahead of the boots of the batter. Saurav Chauhan looks to whip it to the leg side but misses and it hits his pads. A huge appeal and the Umpire doesn't flinch a bit to raise his finger. Saurav Chauhan doesn't review it as it is clearly right in front of the stumps. Hyderabad are on a roll here as Bengaluru lose half of their side now, falling like a pack of cards.

Pat Cummins to Dinesh Karthik, no run

An appeal for caught behind but the Umpire thinks otherwise. Pat Cummins opts for a review here and challenges the decision as he believes it has taken off the edge of the bat. This is down the pads on a length, Dinesh Karthik misses to flick it away and the keeper collects it behind the wickets. UltraEdge however shows no bat is involved and there's a spike when the ball passes the thigh pad. Hyderabad burn a review here.

4:40 PM IST Dinesh Karthik walks out to bat in a precarious situation.

Pat Cummins to Faf du Plessis, no run

OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! The Bengaluru skipper departs and now they are in serious trouble. Pat Cummins outsmarts Faf du Plessis by bowling a deceptive slower one on the top of the stumps, closer to the body, Faf du Plessis waits for an eternity to play at it and weirdly pokes at it on the pull shot. It brushes off his gloves taking the faintest of feather touch and Heinrich Klaasen does the rest behind the wickets with a regulation grab.

Mayank Markande to Rajat Patidar, no run

OUT! TAKEN! A flurry of wickets here and Bengaluru further goes down the drain! Markande strikes again and gets his second wicket. A true impact from him. Bowls a flighted-delivery right into the slot of the batter. Rajat Patidar goes to rightfully punish it but doesn't quite get the timing right on that one. He picks it up however over mid-wicket but finds Nitish Kumar Reddy at deep mid-wicket. Rajat Patidar departs with another dismal performance.

Jaydev Unadkat to Faf du Plessis, no run

OUT! RUN OUT! Oh, no! That's a horrible, horrible way to get out! Will Jacks and Faf du Plessis are in complete disarray here. Fuller and slower on the stump line, Faf du Plessis plays it early right down to the bowler. Jaydev Unadkat puts his hand in the line of the ball on his follow-through and it deflects off his right hand, and breaks into the wickets at the non-striker's end. Will Jacks is already out of the crease as he takes the start-up to his run. Unfortunate way of getting out and Bengaluru lose their second wicket.

4:24 PM IST Strategic Break! Well then, Bengaluru not only matched Hyderabad in the Powerplay but even scored 3 runs more. However, with Virat Kohli now getting out, the onus is on the new batter to take the game to the opposition. Faf du Plessis is going well at the other end but they need another big partnership. Hyderabad know that wickets at regular intervals will do the trick for them and would look to take a bit more now. With that said, Will Jacks walks out to bat.

Mayank Markande to Virat Kohli, no run

OUT! BOWLED'EM! CLEANED HIM UP! Markande employs the googly on a fuller length at off, and it turns sharply back in to the middle and leg stump line, Virat Kohli sits down to sweep it away but he gets deceived by the wrong'un completely and plays it down the wrong line. The ball crashes into the woods and dismantles the bails. What a fine knock from Virat Kohli as he departs on a quickfire 38, providing a stable foundation for Bengaluru in this mammoth run chase. Mayank Markande, the Impact Sub for Hyderabad has put his impact right in his very first over by dismissing Virat Kohli. A big, big wicket here for Hyderabad.
