The calming influence of Kane Williamson helped the Sunrisers Hyderabad pull off their highest successful chase in this year's Indian Premier League. In the same over, he also effected the run out of Naman Ojha (1).
Eyeing a challenging total for SRH have never chased more than 150 on home turf since 2015, the hosts got off to a steady start with openers Alex Hales and Shikhar Dhawan laying the early strong platform. But incongruent to the final margin, the match was a last-over thriller, in which Yusuf Pathan took the team home from needing 28 off 12. Hales then cleared the fence thrice as Avesh conceded 27 in the sixth over.
Alex Hales used power, nifty footwork and cricket smarts while at the crease to score 45.
During the chase, Englishman Hales (45 off 31 deliveries) and Dhawan (33 off 30) provided 76 runs from nine overs for the opening wicket to set the ideal base for the chase. He also effortlessly hit two sixes before falling to Kaul for 44 (36 balls, 3×4).
Conte eyes win over Liverpool to boost Chelsea's top-four hopes
Liverpool are now third with 72 points, while Chelsea sit fifth with 66, but the London side still have one game in hand. Limited opportunities under Jose Mourinho saw Salah leave for Fiorentina on loan 12 months later.
The Iyer-Shaw combo added 86 runs for the second wicket, and threatened to pile up a big score.
The Hyderabad side boasts of probably the best bowling attack in the ongoing IPL, comprising Siddharth Kaul, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Basil Thampi besides all-rounders Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammed Nabi and Yusuf Pathan.
Iyer was soon dismissed and Rishabh Pant (18) failed to connect with the bat every time.
Hales began slowly before opening his shoulders and smashed Avesh Khan for three sixes to nearly double his score. However, medium pacers Avesh Khan, Liam Plunkett, and spinner Shahbaz Nadeem need to step up and come out with their best to support Boult.
Dodgers recall SP Buehler, could stick in rotation
He removed then-rookie Ross Stripling from a bid against San Francisco with one out in the eighth in 2016. His high pitch count as a professional is 94, so there was no way he was coming back out for a seventh.
This was Rashid's third Man-of-the-Match award in IPL 2018.
IPL veteran Amit Mishra, who has bowled many a match-winning spells in Hyderabad, bowled another superb one on Saturday night - 4-0-19-2 - that nearly single-handedly gave his team the momentum back. Shaw smashed 65 off 36 balls but after scoring 95 in the first 10 overs, DD managed only 67 in the back 10 with the pitch getting slower and the odd delivery holding up.
The absence of their most experienced seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has barely been felt even as skipper Kane Williamson is bullish about Bhuvi's return. In their last game here, SRH bundled out formidable Kings XI Punjab for just 119 in 19.2 overs while defending a target of 132. "The delivery was a copybook leg-break that pitched on good length and turned sharply as it beat Hales" lunging willow to clip the off-stump. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who made a comeback after a back injury kept him out for a few games, had a decent but wicket-less outing. SRH's Rashid Khan who picked up 2 wickets for just 23 runs was given the Player of the Match Award. Both were bowled by leg-spinner Amit Mishra as Hyderabad lost the openers with 86 on the board after 11 overs.
