Field up, what?Stanlake hits over the top and secures a thrilling win for Sunrisers. Pretty full on middle stump, yet another slower ball from Cutting, Stanlake does not get all of it but manages to swipe it over midwicket for a boundary. Hooda embraces Stanlake and the celebrations begin in the Sunrisers camp
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
Hooda shuffles across the off stump, banged in short and attacking the body, miscues a scoop in the air. Bumrah runs in from short fine leg but the ball lands in front of him. Scores are tied
It's down to two off two balls. Hooda now chats with Stanlake. Another conference between Cutting and Rohit
slower ball floating into the pads, tickled away to the leg side. Stanlake and Hooda scamper across for the single. The fumble from Rohit helped their cause
Stanlake has to get Hooda back on strike. Three needed off three balls
Cutting and Rohit have an intense chat
low full-toss outside off, bunted down to the right of long-off. Hooda looks for the second. But Pollard is too quick for him
back of a length and angling away wide outside off from round the stumps, Hooda slashes with all his might, but loses his shape, and only collects fresh air
Cutting loses his line and his head. Sprayed wide past the marker. Left alone
full-toss, angling away outside off, Hooda clears his front leg, then bends his knee, and sends it clattering over extra cover for a six. First six of the chase in the last over
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
Mustafizur has his hands aloft in delight. Sandeep attempts to clear short fine leg. No dice. He shows his ace early and shuffles across off stump. Mustafiz chases him with a short ball that gets big on the batsman. He miscues a scoop to Krunal Pandya. Not sure if the batsmen crossed over
The field has been spread out for Sandeep
yet another cutter, nipping away outside off, opens Sandeep up and goes past the outside edge
Mustafiz pockets a one-handed return catch. This was a Mustafiz special: cutter, skipping away outside off, Kaul chips a leading edge to the left of the bowler. Mustafiz stretches out his left hand and comes out with the ball. Mumbai edge ahead
very full and angling across off, another big swing and a miss. Hooda walks up to Kaul and has a word with him
cutter, moving away outside off, Kaul pushes away from the body and watches the ball run past the outside edge
Over to Kaul
back of a length on off, backs away and stabs to cover. Hooda stutters and eventually takes the single
Mustafiz. So, Cutting will bowl the last
very full and straight - near yorker - squeezed back. Two wickets and three runs off the over. Well done, Bumrah. Sunrisers need 12 off 12 balls
A sleep greets Kaul
Two in two balls for Bumrah! He has Rashid nicking off now. Pitched up and outside off, Rashid stays leg-side of the ball and aims for an expansive dive. He does not get enough bat on it and only edges it behind to Kishan. Okay, I spoke too soon. Sunrisers still need 12 off 13 balls
Sunrisers still have some insurance in Rashid Khan
Bumrah bounces out Pathan and gives Mumbai hope. Chest-high short ball on middle, rushes a pull, Pathan flaps it in the air. Pollard at short midwicket lumbers to his right and clings onto the ball
inswinging yorker on middle, jammed to the covers for one
wide yorker, squirted to deep third man
back of a length and angling in towards off stump, dragged away towards wide long-on
hip-high short ball on off stump, Pathan was waiting for the bad ball. He gets it now. Helped away past short fine leg for four. Sunrisers will breathe easy
