11.47pm Sunrisers Hyderabad make it two wins in two matches. Mumbai, Indians, on the other hand, slump to their second loss in two matches. When Sunrisers need 15 off the last three overs they seemed ahead, but they then lost four wickets in two overs. Ultimately, they were left needing 11 off the last over. Cutting lost his length off the first ball and "Hurricane" Hooda launched it over extra cover to narrow the equation to 5 off 5 balls. A wide and three singles reduced it to one needed off the final delivery. Billy Stanlake, the No. 11, nervously examined the field, contemplated his options and then hoicked the slower delivery to the midwicket fence to deliver a one-wicket win and send a strong crowd of 30,000 into delirium. Spare a thought for 20-year-old legspinner Markande who showed great control with both the legbreak and googly to end with 4 for 23.
Rohit: Still early days but a great game of cricket. Being on the receiving end at the second time is tough to digest. The total wasn't good enough. We should have batted with more responsibility. Yeah excited with the talent. We have a long, long way to go.
Dhawan, orange cap holder: Been playing IPL for ten years but getting the cap for the first time. Markande is a good bowler, next time I will try to get him.
Markande, purple cap holder: This is my first season and feeling great. I am just trying to stick to my basics.
Williamson: One of the games that comes down to the wire. The surface was different and maybe we were not quick to adapt. The bowlers were outstanding and we scrapped with the bat. Hooda was outstanding and Rashid is a great asset with the ball. We have a number of very talented local bowlers. Sandeep bowled nicely and to be honest at the halfway stage I thought it would be scrappy effort to get across the line.
Rashid Khan, Man of the Match: Dot balls are also crucial in the shortest format. That was the plan to bowl dot balls. I try to bowl in a good-length area and mix it up. I always look for the weakness in the batsman. Both legspin and googly I bowl with sharp turn. Afghanistan players are playing here and they are supporting us in every league. Except sport there is nothing much that gives more joy back home. Me, Nabi, and Mujeeb are here and hoping to give them happiness. I want to dedicate this to my friend's son who is in hospital.
Naman: "When you have to defend just 1 off the last ball and No. 11 is on strike, why would you bowl a slower one? Shouldn't it be fast and aimed at the body?"
Shashank Parne: "This win is special for srh! Won without warner and Bhuvi ....needs to address the middle order though...long way to go!"
Pranav Anand : "Hooda is perfectly placed at the mid position of the scorecard. He kept the two halves, SRH, and the viewers glued! #sensiblebatting"
First time a team won by 1 wicket off the final delivery in IPL. What a finish. That is all we have for you from this game. Thanks for tuning in. Expecting your company tomorrow too. Goodbye and good night for now
Kishan throws his right glove away. The field is up. Sit tight
It's down to two off two balls. Hooda now chats with Stanlake. Another conference between Cutting and Rohit
Stanlake has to get Hooda back on strike. Three needed off three balls
Cutting and Rohit have an intense chat
Sunrisers need 11 off the last over. It's down to one man v another. Former Sunriser Cutting v Hooda. Around the wicket
One run and two wickets off the penultimate over in a T20 game = gold
The field has been spread out for Sandeep
Over to Kaul
Mustafiz. So, Cutting will bowl the last
A sleep greets Kaul
Sunrisers still have some insurance in Rashid Khan
