Bangalore innings:

Summary: 232 was always going to be a difficult target to chase specially with the scorching conditions at Hyderabad. Bangalore needed a mighty effort, but that didn’t happen as they lost all their star players inside the first six overs. From thereon, Colin de Grandhomme and 16-year old Prayas Ray Barman stitched a useful partnership, but it was too little too late. Afghanistan allrounder Mohammad Nabi decimate the run-chase with four wickets in his four overs going for just 11 runs. Sandeep Sharma complimented him well, Bangalore were skittled for 113. How’s that for a total as compared to Jonny Bairstow’s 114? Did Bairstow defeat Bangalore? It’s a day to forget if you’re a Bangalore fan. 11 matches to go and Bangalore can still turn the tide in their favour. Do stick around for the presentations or you can hop on to the next match of Super Sunday where Chennai, the only team undefeated in the tournament until now, face Rajasthan at Chepauk.

19th over: WICKET! In yet another run-out dismissal, De Grandhomme departs for 37 in what was a real sloppy effort by the Kiwi. The penultimate over by Shankar goes for 6 runs. Bangalore 110/9

16th over: WICKET! Another one bites the dust. Barman gives an easy catch to Hooda at mid-wicket after Sandeep Sharma foxes the youngster with a beautfiully disguised slower delivery. Barman adds 19 to a dismal scorecard. Bangalore 86/7 in 15.1 overs.

15th over: Although the match has been done and dusted, Barman and De Grandhomme are playing quite good knocks in the middle, possibly pushing their case for selection in the next match. Bangalore 86/6 (De Grandhomme 31, Barman 19)

11th over: Kaul was hammered to the stands by Grandhomme, this over going for 7 runs. Bangalore will need a few more of these lusty blows, but is it too little too late? Bangalore 51/6 (De Grandhomme 10, Barman 5)

10th over: Rashid Khan has been introduced into the attack and has conceded just 4 runs. Bangalore 44/6 (Barman 5, De Grandhomme 3)

7th over: BIG WICKET! It looks to be all over for Bangalore. The captain Kohli has walked back after driving it straight to David Warner at cover.

2nd over: WICKET! Hyderabad have struck early in the run-chase. Mohammad Nabi bowled a full toss and Parthiv Patel went after it only to find Manish Pandey at cover. Parthiv departed for just 11. Captain Virat Kohli has joined Hetmyer in the middle. Bangalore 13/1 (Hetmyer 2, Virat Kohli 0)

1st over: Bangalore sprang a surprise pushing Shimron Hetmyer to open the innings with Parthiv Patel. Bhuvneshwar Kumar open the bowling for Hyderabad and conceded a boundary with Patel timing it nicely to the cover region. Bangalore 7/0 (Patel 6, Hetmyer 1)

Hyderabad innings:

Summary: This is the second highest total against Bangalore. Highest: 232/2 KXIP vs RCB, Dharamsala, 2011. It was the Warner-Bairstow show that entertained the partisan crowds at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Bangalore never were in the innings with all of their bowlers wayward so much so that captain Virat Kohli was sometimes looking clueless as to which bowler he has to throw the ball to. 59 in the powerplay, the Warner-Bairstow pair had added a record opening partnership of 185 runs. Bangalore will have to bat out of their skins to chase this one. Do they have the batsman with Rashid Khan in the bowling attack? The run-chase in a bit…

20th over: Another centurion from Hyderabad, and it’s David Warner, who has brought up his fourth Indian T20 League century. Hyderabad finish at 231/2, Warner remains unbeaten on 100

19th over: Umesh Yadav’s final over yields 16 runs. DAVID WARNER NOW IN THE NINETIES! Hyderabad 221/2 (Warner 93, Yusuf Pathan 4)

18th over: WICKET! Vijay Shankar is run out after trying to get Warner on strike, but is well short, good throw by Shimron Hetmyer. Shankar goes for 9. Hyderabad 205/2 (Warner 78, Yusuf Pathan 3)

17th over: A fine knock and one of the greatest innings of this season, Jonny Bairstow’s scintillating run comes to an end, departs for 114, Chahal strikes. Hyderabad 195/1 (Warner 71, Vijay Shankar 9)

16th over: WHAT AN INNINGS, JONNY BAIRSTOW! He brings up his first T20 League hundred, his second in the format. Barman’s final over goes for 20 runs. Hyderabad 184/0 (Bairstow 114, Warner 69)

15th over: Finally, an excellent over from Bangalore, just 3 runs coming in this Moeen Ali over. Bairstow is one short of his maiden century. Hyderabad 164/0 (Bairstow 99, Warner 64)

14th over: The Bangalore bowling attack looking absolutely clueless here. Chahal’s over goes for 16 runs. Hyderabad 161/0 (Bairstow 97, Warner 63)

13th over: FIFTY TO WARNER! Barman’s third over goes for 12 runs, David Warner brings up his half-century, his 42nd 50-plus score in the T20 League. Hyderabad 145/0 (Bairstow 91, Warner 54)

12th over: Hyderabad dominating proceedings over here. Umesh Yadav has just gone for 16 runs in his third over. Hyderabad 133/0 (Bairstow 84, Warner 49) 

11th over: Kohli seems to be lacking quality bowlers here, Moeen back into the attack and he’s conceded 12 runs which includes a SIX by Warner. Hyderabad 117/0 (Bairstow 68, Warner 49)

10th over: TWO SIXES OFF new bowler, Colin de Grandhomme and Bairstow has broken the shackles, leading from the front. He’s looking really dangerous now. Hyderabad 105/0 (Bairstow 67, Warner 38)

9th over: FIFTY! Jonny Bairstow brings up his first Indian T20 League half-century, this one coming in just 28 deliveries. Barman’s second over goes for 18 runs, which includes a HUGE SIX and two boundaries by Bairstow. Hyderabad 89/0 (Bairstow 53, Warner 36)

8th over: Chahal into his second over and he’s gone for 6 runs. Bangalore have slowed down the run-rate of Hyderabad now. Hyderabad 71/0 (Bairstow 36, Warner 35)

7th over: The youngest debutante in Indian T20 League history, Prayas Ray Barman, has been introduced into the attack, bowling leg-spin to the Warner-Bairstow duo, the 16-year-old has been quite impressive with only six runs in his first over. Hyderabad 65/0 (Bairstow 34, Warner 31)

6th over: END OF THE 1ST POWERPLAY! 59 runs coming in the first powerplay, this over from Siraj yielding runs, Warner and Bairstow scoring in tandem as none of the bowlers are looking threatening. Hyderabad 59/0 (Bairstow 32, Warner 27)

4th over: So, Kohli is not allowing the Hyderabad openers to settle down, makes another bowling change and brings in Mohammad Siraj into the attack, but his plan failed, as Bairstow struck back-to-back boundaries. Hyderabad 43/0 (Warner 25, Bairstow 18)

3rd over: Bowling change! Legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal comes into the attack, but David Warner does not think twice and attack the leggie straight away, smashing a boundary in the fifth delivery. 11 runs off this over. Hyderabad 32/0 (Warner 23, Bairstow 9)

2nd over: Warner goes aerial! First ball from Umesh Yadav and David Warner whacks that one down the ground for the first maximum. That was batting of the highest quality from the Australian. Hyderabad 21/0 (Warner 12, Bairstow 9)

1st over: Brilliant start! Hyderabad are off to a brilliant start with both openers — David Warner and Jonny Bairstow — smashing boundaries off Moeen Ali. Hyderabad 14/0 (Bairstow 9, Warner 5)

Virat Kohli: “We will bowl first. This pitch will play slow in the first half. And it will play well in the second half.”

3:31 pm: TOSS TIME! Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the side again for Hyderabad in the absence of Kane Williamson, who is down with a slight niggle. Virat Kohli has won the toss and Bangalore have elected to bowl.

3:19 pm: Pitch report: “It is really hot. It looks like a beautiful wicket. There will be plenty of runs for the batsmen this afternoon,” says Brett Lee.

Having registered their first win of the tournament at home against RajasthanHyderabad are oozing with confidence and will want to carry the momentum in their next home match when they face Bangalore in the Indian T20 League on Sunday.

Despite Sanju Samson scoring an unbeaten 102 not out, David Warner (69 off 37 balls) helped Hyderabad chase down a mammoth 199-run target for an impressive five-wicket win, their first of the season on Friday against Rajasthan.

After two games – one at Chepauk and at home – Bangalore are still searching for a win. This is the first time that Virat Kohli and Co. haven’t won a game after two outing which makes this encounter all the more interesting.

Bangalore’s explosive batting line-up has failed to live up to its billing. While the 70 all-out in the first game against Chennai was more due to the pitch conditions, their failure to chase down Mumbai’s total of 187 at home on Thursday has brought the batting line-up in the spotlight.
