What a game that was! Electing to bat at the home ground, Sunrisers coudln't have gone off the mark with a poorer start. Early wickets that keep falling at the slightest breeze and a very poor run rate. It wasn't until Samantray stepped in and stepped up the game. He brought some sort of a balance between the balls and the runs. Miraculously, Hyderabad managed to eke out a run rate that is higher than 6 at the end of the game.
As SRH always does, it bowled extremely well mounting pressure on the visitors. Dravid, Watson and all the other important players were handpicked and sent back to the pavillion one by one. In the end it was a comfortable win for the team with Amit Mishra claiming the man of the match trophy in the end for his splendid 4 overs giving away only 8 runs with two wickets in his pocket.
