Sunrisers Hyderabad: 58/0 | Over 6 | Shikhar Dhawan 31*, Parthiv Patel 24*

Kandurata Maroon’s trump card Ajantha Mendis was introduced in the last over of the powerplay. However, Shikhar Dhawan made a mockery of the mystery spinner’s bowling. After failing to capitalise on a poor delivery in the first ball of the over, he hit three consecutive boundaries in the over. One was a pull on the leg followed by a gracious drive on the off-side and another pull on the leg.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 44/0 | Over 5 | Shikhar Dhawan 18*, Parthiv Patel 22*

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 35/0 | Over 4 | Shikhar Dhawan 11*, Parthiv Patel 20*

Shikhar Dhawan finally gets into the act with a pull off the backfoot which goes for a boundary. He follows it up with a signature flick on the leg-side for another boundary.

There is very little margin for the Kandurata bowlers to err with Dhawan.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 25/0 | Over 3 | Shikhar Dhawan 2*, Parthiv Patel 19*

Nuwan Kulasekara replaces part-timer Jayasuriya who bowled a tight first over. Parthiv Patel lookks in good nick as he hits two consecutive boundaries.

A swift piece of work by Kumar Sangakkara nearly finds Dhawan short of his crease.

With all eyes on Dhawan, Parthiv Patel manages to steal a bit of limelight with his early hitting.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 14/0 | Over 2 | Shikhar Dhawan 2*, Parthiv Patel 10*

Lahiru Jayaratne is brought in to bowl the second over of the innings. However, the start isn’t good with a poor delivery wide outside the off. Sunrisers Hyderabad get their innings moving with a boundary off the second ball of the over.

Parthiv Patel charges down the track to hit the last delivery of the over for a boundary.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 2/0 | Over 1 | Shikhar Dhawan 1*, Parthiv Patel 1*

Kandurata Maroons, in a surprising move, open the bowling with Shehan Jayasuriya. Although he isn’t turn the ball, he is doing enough to trouble the batsmen with a tight line.

Kandurata Maroons: 168/3 | Over 20 | Kumar Sangakkara 61*, Dilhara Lokuhettige 21*

Thisara Perera is chosen to bowl the final over despite having the services of Amit Mishra, who has been in good form. Perera’s first delivery is sent out of the park by Lokuhettige.

However, he comes back well to restrict Kandurata Maroons to 168 for three at the end of the 20th over.

Kandurata Maroons: 157/3 | Over 19 | Kumar Sangakkara 59*, Dilhara Lokuhettige 13*

Dale Steyn bowls his best over of the innings, giving away just five runs. It has been an unusually poor day for Steyn in the business. During the course of the over, he also hurts his fingers after being hit by Dilhara’s Lokuhettige’s straight smack.

He ends with figures of 4-0-35-0.

Kandurata Maroons: 152/3 | Over 18 | Kumar Sangakkara 57*, Dilhara Lokuhettige 11*

Shikhar Dhawan opts to bowl Thisara Perera ahead of Amit Mishra. The move backfires as he is hit for three boundaries off the first four deliveries.

A brilliant effort by JP Duminy on the long-on boundary saves a definite four for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the fifth ball of the over. Meanwhile, Kumar Sangakkara brings up his half-century.

Kandurata Maroons: 136/3 | Over 17 | Kumar Sangakkara 46*, Dilhara Lokuhettige 6*

Dale Steyn finds his rythym back in the second spell. Even as the Kandurata batsmen look to attack, they manage to score just six runs from Steyn’s first five deliveries before guiding his last delivery towards the third-man boundary.

It has been a bad outing for the fast bowler.

Kandurata Maroons: 126/3 | Over 16 | Kumar Sangakkara 38*, Dilhara Lokuhettige 4* OUT! 3-122 (L Thirimanne | 15.5 overs)

To add to Ishant Sharma’s woes, a mistimed pull by Thirimanne falls away from the man stationed at mid-on and goes for a boundary. However, Sharma comes back to to uproot the Kandurata skipper’s stumps.

Kandurata Maroons: 112/2 | Over 15 | Kumar Sangakkara 37*, Lahiru Thirimanne 44*

Amit Mishra, Indian Premier League’s (IPL) leading wicket-taker, is finally brought into the attack. Sangakkara plays a beautiful sweep off the third delivery for a boundary.

During the course of the over, Kandurata Maroons bring up their highest partnership for any wicket in T20 cricket.

With five overs to go, Kandurata Maroons are well-placed for a late flourish.

Kandurata Maroons: 103/2 | Over 14 | Kumar Sangakkara 32*, Lahiru Thirimanne 41*

Thisara’s poor bowling isn’t helping Sunrisers Hyderabad’s cause. Sangakkara pulls a short-pitched delivery for a boundary and follows it up with a classical flick for a single.

Sangakkara and Thirimanne have set a good platform for the big-hitters to come to the party.

Kandurata Maroons: 95/2 | Over 13 | Kumar Sangakkara 26*, Lahiru Thirimanne 39*

Thirimanne takes advantage of a poor short-pitched delivery by JP Duminy to hit it for a boundary on the leg. Duminy bowls another delivery of similar length to Sangakkara, but is lucky to not be punished.

Kandurata Maroons: 85/2 | Over 12 | Kumar Sangakkara 25*, Lahiru Thirimanne 29*

Thirimanne takes on Thisara Perera as soon as he is brought into bowl. The Kandurata skipper dances down the track to hit Perera out of the park.

Thirimanne makes his intentions clear as he goes for a slash on the off-side which is well fielded.

During the course of the over, Thirimanne and Sangakkara bring up their 50-run partnership.

Kandurata Maroons: 76/2 | Over 11 | Kumar Sangakkara 24*, Lahiru Thirimanne 22*

The contest betwen the bat and the ball becomes interesting as both the batsmen and Darren Sammy play clever cricket. Although Sammy is hammered for two boundaries in the over, he comes back to bowl a nippy delivery that finds Thirimanne unaware. However, the Kandurata skipper is not given out.

Kandurata Maroons: 66/2 | Over 10 | Kumar Sangakkara 19*, Lahiru Thirimanne 18*

With the need to up the tempo, skipper Lahiru Thirimanne advances down the track and hits JP Duminy out of the park.

With nine runs off the 10th over, the innings hangs in balance .

Kandurata Maroons: 57/2 | Over 9 | Kumar Sangakkara 17*, Lahiru Thirimanne 11*

With the run-rate hovering around run-a-ball, Kumar Sangakkara attempts a slog, but top-edges it. Luckily for him, it lands safely. He follows it up with a smack through the covers, which is brilliantly stopped.

Kandurata Maroons: 48/2 | Over 8 | Kumar Sangakkara 14*, Lahiru Thirimanne 5*

Shikhar Dhawan introduces part-timer JP Duminy into the attack. Kandurata batsmen avoid taking any risks as they manage to score just five runs off the over.

Kandurata Maroons: 43/2 | Over 7 | Kumar Sangakkara 12*, Lahiru Thirimanne 2*

Sunrisers Hyderabad have took a hold on the innings after getting off to a poor start. Following Tharanga’s dismissal, Kandurata’s scoring rate has dropped drastically.

Kandurata Maroons: 37/2 | Over 6 | Kumar Sangakkara 1*, Lahiru Thirimanne 2*

Kandurata batsmen are still failing to adjust with the bounce and movement in the pitch. Ishant Sharma, meanwhile is making merry bowling good lenght deliveries with good variations in line.

A good save on the boundary by Ashish Reddy saves three runs for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Kandurata Maroons: 33/2 | Over 5 | Kumar Sangakkara 1* OUT! 2-33 (S Jayasuriya | 4.6 overs)

Opener Shehan Jayasuriya finally gets off the mark in the fifth over with a boundary on the square, before getting dismissed off the last delivery of the over.

Darren Sammy’s first over produces eight runs and a wicket.

Kandurata Maroons: 25/1 | Over 4 | Kumar Sangakkara 1*, Shehan Jayasuriya 0* OUT! 1-25 (U Tharanga | 3.3 overs)

Ishant Sharma troubles Upul Tharanga with the bounce before inducing an edge off the third delivery to dismiss him.

While Steyn has been straying all over the pitch, Ishant Sharma has been impressive. He gives away just one even in his second over.

Kandurata Maroons: 25/0 | Over 3 | Upul Tharanga 19*, Shehan Jayasuriya 0*

Dale Steyn’s misery continues in the second over as Tharanga hits him for two consecutive boundaries. An unusual start for the pacer, by his standards. However, he returns to bowl three consecutive dot deliveries and ended by giving a single off the last ball.

Kandurata Maroons: 16/0 | Over 2 | Upul Tharanga 10*, Shehan Jayasuriya 0*

Dhawan removes a slip for Ishant Sharma after Sunrisers get off to a poor start. In a moment of madness, Jayasuriya backs to far as Tharanga defends Sharma’s delivery to square mid-on. But is lucky to survive as an attempt at the stumps doesn’t hit.

Sharma continues to trouble the batsmen with excellent variation in length. He gives away just one run in the over.

Kandurata Maroons: 15/0 | Over 1 | Upul Tharanga 9*, Shehan Jayasuriya 0*

Dale Steyn starts off poorly as his first five deliveries are off-line, two going wide and the other three for boundary

Shikhar Dhawan shows the attacking instinct right from the start. He places two slips throughout the over, even as Steyn misfires.
