Shikhar Dhawan started to cut loose for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their match against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 match. After hitting Sandeep to all ends of the park, Dhawan even took on Mitchell Johnson as he hit him down the ground for a boundary, and then pulled him for just a single. Signs were ominous for the KXIP bowlers.

Sandeep came back for his third over on the trot, and induced a false shot from Aaron Finch to begin the over. Glenn Maxwell backpedaled to take a terrific catch, but it was a no ball. Sandeep followed it up with another no ball, that was hit for four by Dhawan. Dhawan was looking in great touch, as he hit Sandeep for another boundary before going down the ground and hitting him for a six. Sandeep’s nightmare over didn’t end there, as Dhawan pulled him for the third boundary of the over. Sandeep responded by bowling wide, and Dhawan hit him over covers for yet another boundary. Dhawan got a single off the last ball to make it 26 runs off the over.

Mitchell Johnson, bowling the fourth over, started with a couple of quick balls to Aaron Finch. He bowled a wide, but conceded no runs off the bat for the first two legal balls he bowled. A mis-field from Shivam Sharma enabled the batsmen to get two runs off the third ball. Johnson gave no room to Finch for him to free his arms, and kept him quiet by giving away only five runs in the over.

Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan and Aaron Finch got off to a slow start. Sandeep Sharma came back to bowl his second over on the trot. Dhawan tried to advance down the track and play the ball through covers but got an inside edge for just a single. Finch managed to get a boundary through point with a deft dab, using Sandeep’s pace against him. Sandeep responded well, by conceding only a single off the next two balls. There was an appeal for a run out off the fifth ball of the over, but Finch was safe. SRH got to 18 for no loss after the first three overs.

The second over of the SRH innings was bowled by Mitchell Johnson. Dhawan got a single to start off the over. Finch got an inside edge off the second ball, but it went past the stumps safely. Johnson was bowling quickly, but was a little wayward with his line to begin with. However, he soon found his line and ended up conceding only four runs off the over.

Sandeep Sharma came in to bowl the very first over of the match, and was hit for a boundary of the very first delivery by Aaron Finch. Shikhar Dhawan, opening the innings along with Finch, tried to force the pace by walking down the ground to Sandeep. He was unable to get the ball past the infield, and ended up managing only a single off the last ball of the over. Sandeep conceded six runs off it.

Earlier, KXIP won the toss and elected to field first. Young right-handed batsman Manan Vohra was included at the cost of Mandeep Singh, while off-spinner Shivam Sharma came in to replace medium-fast bowler Parvinder Awana. SRH came in with the same team.
