Pepsi Indian Premier League, 30th match: Rajasthan Royals v Sunrisers Hyderabad at Ahmedabad, May 8, 2014
Sunrisers Hyderabad won by 32 runs
8 May 2014 - night match (20-over match)

Watson to Dhawan, OUT, he is got him! That has taken an outside edge from the offstump! Too close for a cut actually.. He was neither forward, nor backward.. A poor short from Dhawan just after he was starting to find his touch

S Dhawan b Watson 33 (19m 20b 7x4 0x6) SR: 165.00

Sunrisers Hyderabad 37/1   AJ Finch 3* (4b)   SR Watson 1-0-8-1

Bhatia to Finch, OUT, Rahane you beauty! He runs in from the deep midwicket boundary, dives forward and takes a blinder. This was a length ball and Finch, as is his wont, swung across the line but didn't make a great connection.. it looked like it was going to drop much short but Rahane ran in quick and slid under it.. A bit like Jadeja taking that catch to dismiss Allan Border in the 1992 WC

AJ Finch c Rahane b Bhatia 9 (33m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Sunrisers Hyderabad 55/2   KL Rahul 11* (9b 2x4)   R Bhatia 0.3-0-5-1

Bhatia to Rahul, OUT, poor poor shot! Bhatia does what Bhatia does.. Slower delivery outside off, Rahul plays a sweep like he would have against a spinner, misses it completely and loses his offstump..What a shot to play after playing a number of good-looking straight-batted shots.. Sign of the tiimes

KL Rahul b Bhatia 18 (23m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sunrisers Hyderabad 67/3   NV Ojha 5* (6b)   R Bhatia 2-0-13-2

Tambe to Warner, OUT, superbly done from Tambe, tosses it up more than he usually does, the line is on middle, Warner takes the bait and rushes out, has a swipe, but this is the googly, turns away, and he is stumped

DA Warner st †Samson b Tambe 6 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Sunrisers Hyderabad 85/4   NV Ojha 16* (16b 1x4)   PV Tambe 2.5-0-17-1

Bhatia to Ojha, OUT, Bhatia downs another one! this is a slow legcutter on off, Naman Ojha tries to steer it fine on the off side and loses his offstump

NV Ojha b Bhatia 17 (23m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 89.47

Sunrisers Hyderabad 89/5   MC Henriques 3* (3b)   R Bhatia 3.5-0-21-3

Watson to Henriques, OUT, he comes and picks up the wicket immediately! What a guy.. That was a length delivery, asking to be hit, Henriques clobbers it flat towards long-off where Rahane takes another good catch..

MC Henriques c Rahane b Watson 9 (19m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Sunrisers Hyderabad 106/6   IK Pathan 8* (10b)   SR Watson 1.1-0-8-2

Watson to Sharma, OUT, another one! This is a hat-trick for Watson. Angled delivery, it's steered straight to the hands of the keeper. Ahmedabad is proving real lucky for Royals! Second hat-trick in two games

KV Sharma c †Samson b Watson 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sunrisers Hyderabad 106/7   IK Pathan 8* (10b)   SR Watson 1.2-0-8-3

Faulkner to Pathan, 1 wide, OUT, and another one! This is too wide though but Irfan runs for a bye.. Steyn has to pay the price as Sanju takes down the stumps..

DW Steyn run out 9 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Sunrisers Hyderabad 125/8   IK Pathan 17* (20b 1x4)   JP Faulkner 3.2-0-16-0

Faulkner to Mishra, OUT, What a comedy! The batsman misses the shot and runs out of the crease to pick up a bye.. Sanju fires the throw and misses.. Faulkner gathers the ball, he fires in a throw again as Mishra is still out of the crease.. He misses again.. Now Sanju takes it and he finally manages to strike the stumps.. Mishra could have saved himself but he had given himself up to the mercy of this funny game between Samson and Faulkner.. Irfan Pathan doesn't move, he had the best seat

A Mishra run out 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sunrisers Hyderabad 129/9   IK Pathan 17* (20b 1x4)   JP Faulkner 3.4-0-16-0
