In the 43rd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, Sunrisers Hyderabad got the important wicket of Mainish Pandey, who was running away with the game with an excellent counter-attack on the home team’s bowlers and were on target to chase down the low score. Just then, they got an important wicket of Pandey and the Sunrisers had their game face on. They could sniff a chance. Karn Sharma had finished his quota of overs with some excellent bowling — tidy and inviting the batsmen to make a mistake.

Preserving the last Dale Steyn over in the death, Sammy bought Irfan Pathan back and it was an excellent over with the younger Pathan finding the yorker length ball regularly and the batsmen could only block the ball out for six singles in the over.  With 30 needed of the last three overs, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was sent to bowl and was put to the sword with a mighty heave by Yusuf over mid-wicket and then Ryan ten Doeschate also got on to the act with a terrific cut shot that reached the boundary.

Earlier in the innings, In an unexpected turn of events, Uthappa was run-out in bizarre circumstances. Uthappa’s partner sends him back and and the stylish opener grounds the bat, only for him to lose the grip on his willow at the last second and the bails were dislodged by keeper Naman Ojha.

The 11th over saw a Pathan vs Pathan battle. Irfan steamed in and bowled a ball that was short and wide and the elder sibling smacked the ball to the boundary. Then Manish Pandey went after Amit Mishra in what was a classy display of batting. First, a paddle sweep to the boundary and then picking up Mishra’s leg break and lifting the ball over long-on for a big six. Pandey then whipped the ball of his pads for another boundary.
