  • Right then! That is all we have from this game and we have finally witnessed Gujarat lose a game. The action continues on Tuesday as two teams from down South, two big rivals go head-to-head. It's Chennai versus Bengaluru and that match starts at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT) but our build-up as usual will begin much earlier. Till then, take care and goodbye!
  • Hyderabad skipper, Kane Williamson is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH! Williamson says it was a good game of cricket, both teams were good with the ball. States it was about partnerships, it was not the easiest of wickets to bat on. Adds everybody was clear about the roles with the balls and the execution was very good and the bowlers adjusted well and it was good to take wickets on a consistent basis. Informs he does not have a lot of information about Rahul Tripathi and Washington Sundar but he hopes they recover. Ends by saying it is about contributing and they have managed to do that well and it was a very improved performance.
  • The presentation ceremony...
  • Nicholas Pooran is up for a quick chat. Pooran starts by thanking God and says that the batting group knew what they had to do and not repeat their mistakes from the past. Adds that the wicket was a bit two-paced and all they had to do was avoid making a stupid mistake. Mentions that the batting unit is improving on the whole which is a good sign. Adds that they need to work a bit on the dropped catches and overall the bowlers did well to restrict the opposition to around 160.
  • Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya says that they were probably 10 runs short and that might have made a difference. Adds that they started off well with the ball but those two overs in the Powerplay cost them a bit. Mentions that the opposition bowled well at the death and stuck to their plans. Also says that the motto remains the same and they try to maintain a healthy and fun atmosphere in the camp and are looking forward to the next game.
  • The bowling was slightly off for Gujarat! The likes of Lockie Ferguson and Darshan Nalkande were not quite up to the mark! More than the bowling though the fielding and the decision of not taking the review early on cost Gujarat. However, they were just outplayed by Hyderabad. They were just not up to the mark in this game.
  • It was an extremely calculated chase! Hyderabad were very cautious for the first 4 overs but then runs flourished in the last two overs of the Powerplay. The openers yet again set the foundation as they added 64. Sharma fell but Williamson continued the good work. Tripathi supported him well before going off injured. It seemed like there would be a panic situation when Williamson got out but Markram and Pooran handled the pressure well and helped their side get over the line.
  • Two in two for Hyderabad and Gujarat have suffered their first loss! A really good performance by Hyderabad, a complete performance one can say. The key was that they did not panic in crunch situations and that is what helped them get over the line.

    Darshan Nalkande to Nicholas Pooran, SIX! What a way to finish things off and Nicholas Pooran has done it for Hyderabad! Around middle and leg, Pooran launches it high and handsome, way, way over the square leg fence for a monster hit. Hyderabad win by 8 wickets!
