Will Hyderabad’s bowling strike or will the batters of Rajasthan step up and chase this total down? Join us in a bit for the chase!
Rajasthan started off well with the ball. They kept things slow and Hyderabad found it hard to get going. They also did well to get rid of Bairstow right at the start and they did not give him any time to settle. Archer was good once again with the ball and he removed Warner in a crucial stage in the game. Archer, Tyagi and Unadkat did well to scalp a wicket each for Rajasthan.
Hyderabad started off slow in this game and their openers Warner and Bairstow could not replicate their opening stand they had in the previous game. Jonny Bairstow fell first right at the start. Warner and Pandey did well to steady the ship for quite some time. But then Warner lost his wicket to Archer. Pandey continued to go big but fatigue plays a big part in the afternoon games as he looked tired when he gave his wicket away cheaply. In the end, short cameos by Williamson and Garg played small cameos and propelled Hyderabad to a score of 158.
This has been a good finish by Hyderabad in the last couple of overs and they also added 35 runs in the last 2 overs. They needed to go big if they were to cross the 150-run mark and some big hitting courtesy of Pandey, Williamson and a very short cameo by Garg has made sure that Hyderabad cross the mark and they have finished with 158 on the board.

FOUR! Nicely done! A bouncer from Unadkat, a slower one but the line is down the leg side. Garg waits and then pulls it over short fine leg. It races away to the fence.

DRINKS! Rajasthan have done well to get rid of Warner as having him towards the end of the innings can prove to be very harmful to them. Hyderabad still need some big overs towards the end as they need to add some more runs to their total. Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson are both still out there and with them out there, Hyderabad have a good chance of adding some valuable runs towards the end of the innings. Kartik Tyagi is back into the attack for Rajasthan. 2-0-21-1 so far for him.

Short ball outside off, Pandey works this one to the point region.
15.2 overs (0 Run)

IN THE AIR…SAFE AND A FOUR! That should have been taken but Tyagi in the deep was standing a little too ahead of the ropes. Flatter around middle, Pandey dances down the track and pulls this one towards the deep square leg region, Kartik Tyagi in the deep jumps up but does not judge it well as it goes over him for a four.
