Commentary

Titans won by 8 wkts | Titans Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Live Score, Group B, T20 Match 12

With this win, the Titans have gone into the positives in the net run rate (NRAJ) column. In a tournament like this, the NRAJ could play a crucial role. We'll see how things pan out in the next game between Chennai and Brisbane. Join us back in a short while for toss and more. Bye!
Davids: 'It was really nice to get it right. We were looking down the barrel after the start they got but the bowlers pulled it back very nicely. We put them under a lot of pressure. We got few crucial wickets and we showed a lot of guts there out in the middle. I enjoyed playing today. I just gave myself a couple of balls before taking the attack to them and I am happy that it worked.'
Henry Davids is the Man of the Match.
Dhawan: 'We started off really well but the batsmen could not make any significant scores. We lost wickets at regular intervals as well and we ended up making a poor total even though Dale Steyn batted well in the last over. We couldn't play the short ball well. The domestic players need to perform and score big runs. We can't expect Perera and Sammy to push the score every game. We need to work a lot.'
Henry Davids could do nothing wrong from the toss. He called the right side of the coin and inserted Hyderabad in. Shikhar Dhawan and Parthiv Patel threatened to take the game away from the Titans with a fine opening stand, but the introduction David Wiese turned the game in favour of the South African side as he strangled the batsman with his change in pace and also picked up three crucial wickets. It took a last over blitz from Steyn to push the Hyderabad total to respectability. In reply, the Titans got off to a sensational start as the openers Davids and Rudolph put on over 100 runs. Dhawan ran out of ideas and eventually the Titans went on to win the game with 21 balls to spare.
