Jaydev Unadkat with the ball: OUT! Short ball, Yuvraj cuts it over cover, Tripathi takes a good catch in the deep. Three runs short of half-century. SIX! Naman Ojha releases pressure immediately with a sky high shot that travels over the bowler's head. The batsmen will have to keep rotating strike and keep the scorecard ticking.

Sat, 06 May 2017 07:17:21 pm

Christian continues: SIX! Yuvraj steps close to his half-century with the shot, Goes over square leg. Gets a single off the next. Did not concede boundaries after that six, good recovery. 32 needed off the last three.

Tahir's final over: CHANCE? The ball drops beyond the fielder at third man. The fielder failed to reach to the ball, however, good work in the deep to save the certain boundary. FOUR! This time Yuvraj gets the runs. Tahir is animated, not at all happy with himself. Good length at middle this time, only 7 runs. Strategic timeout.

Sat, 06 May 2017 07:06:00 pm

Christian continues: The SRH top-order has been sent back and now is the chance for the team's middle-order to win. Runs coming in singles only.

Sat, 06 May 2017 07:02:33 pm

Tahir continues: Hard-hitting batsmen at both the ends, and with 7 wickets in hand, victory does not seem much difficult. BOWLED HIM! Gets the batsman off the last ball of the over, gets the inside edge of the bat of Henriques who missed the line.

Sat, 06 May 2017 06:58:24 pm

Stokes continues: OUT! This is a big wicket, cramped for room, Warner jumps up in the air to cut the ball, but ends up giving a catch to Shardul Thakur for 40. Moises Henriques is here.

Imran Tahir is here: His first over of the day. Wrong'un straight away, Warner plays it fine, gets a couple, 50 up for SRH. SIX! Tossed up delivery, Warner goes straight down the ground. Well, there is some concern regarding the sight screen and Warner is not happy. Yuvraj and Dhoni are meanwhile engaged in some funny discussion.

Sat, 06 May 2017 06:26:41 pm

Stokes continues: Yuvraj is here. The over starts with three dots. SRH batsmen need to keep their cool and look to build a partnership. The target isn't huge. Meanwhile, Stokes bowls an over with only two singles.

Sat, 06 May 2017 06:24:21 pm

Washington Sundar's third over: A couple of runs off the first. CLOSE! Beats the outside edeg closely. FOUR! Swept through square leg.

Ben Stokes with the ball: BOWLED HIM! Stokes gets his team the first breakthrough, removes Dhawan. FOUR! Wide and full, Williamson finds gap past the wicketkeeper. EDGED AND TAKEN! Williamson has to depart. Successful over from Stokes.

Sat, 06 May 2017 06:13:53 pm

Washington Sundar continues: The target is pretty low for the hard-hitters of SRH and RPS will need frequent wickets. Only restricting them will not do the trick for RPS.

Sat, 06 May 2017 06:08:42 pm

Unadkat continues: Good length outside off, angles in to Warner who misses it, the ball misses the stump closely. Unadkat has cut down on pace. Warner gets a single off the next. SIX!

Sat, 06 May 2017 06:00:05 pm

Brilliant shot by Dhawan, beautifully times his cut through cover. Gets the first boundary for the side. Unadkat's next beats Dhawan's outside edge very closely off the next. FOUR!

Rashid Khan's final over: Starts off with a single. Bowls a tossed up delivery, Tiwary tries to pick a gap, hits it to long on, gets a couple. The batsmen sticking to singles. A very unlikely knock from Dhoni. Just a couple of overs left, the two need to take risks now.

Sat, 06 May 2017 05:24:26 pm

Bhuvneshwar's third over: Single, a couple of runs and a chance again with Dhoni on strike, but lands safely. An extra delivery that RPS will welcome. The responsibility is very much on Dhoni now. Another chance of mix-up, but Dhoni is back at the strikers end on time. Perfectly time and ends a struggling over with a boundary towards point.

Sat, 06 May 2017 05:19:32 pm

Kaul strikes: Christian smashed Kaul's next delivery for boundary and then the next moment he finds himself going out of the dug out. Second wicket for Kaul and Rashid takes a simple catch.

Sat, 06 May 2017 05:14:34 pm

Kaul continues: Starts off with a dot ball. Dhoni defends the first. Swings and misses the next. Goes off the mark with a couple. OUT! Smith looks to open the face of the bat to cut the ball past third man but instead it flies to Bipul Sharma. Smith departs, time for strategic timeout.

Sat, 06 May 2017 05:10:36 pm

Rashid Khan continues: Starts off with a single. APPEAL, huge appeal. Well, Naman Ojha tried to knock off the bails as Stokes went down the ground, but there was a fumble. However, there was an appeal for caught behind as well, the replay shows edge but the ball hits the grill. BOWLED HIM! Rashid anyway clears Stokes, the leg stump goes flying. MS Dhoni at the crease, 100 up for RPS.

Sat, 06 May 2017 05:05:16 pm

Kaul's second over: FOUR! Reverse sweep by Stokes, through cover, and that was the first four of this innings. Stokes accelerating RPS' innings and increasing the runrate. No update on Nehra yet. Wide down the leg. A couple of runs to end the over.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:59:53 pm

Bipul Sharma's final over: SIX! Started off with three singles but Stokes used the next delivery to the fullest, pulling it over midwicket with ease. Smith and Stokes converting the singles into 2s.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:56:15 pm

Rashid Khan continues: RPS will need more such overs as the previous one to increase the runrate. Meanwhile Smith sweeps one to Shikhar Dhawan at square leg. Brilliant running by the the two batsmen. VVS Laxman says 165 on this pitch will be challenging and 150 will be a good target to chase.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:53:09 pm

Bipul with the ball: SIX! After spending much time at the crease, Stokes has now started hitting the ball hard. Goes over midwicket, makes full use of the ball sitting on back leg. ANOTHER SIX! Dances down the crease this time to send the ball in the same region. The partnership RPS needed.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:49:53 pm

Moises Henriques continues: Fifty up for RPS! DROPPED! Too many chances dropped by the SRH fielders today. Could have resulted in three dismissals. Partnership building between Stokes and Smith, something SRH will have to worry about.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:43:13 pm

Bipul Sharma's second over: A slower track and ball is not coming on to bat easily. The batsmen are eager to keep the scorecard ticking and singles are valuable here. Good runners between the wickets. Time for strategic timeout. 9 overs gone, RPS yet to post 50 runs.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:39:55 pm

Henriques continues: Good length at middle, smith flicks the ball to leg side, gets a single. Shorter length delivery to Stokes, who defends the next. The two take a quick single off the next. SRH have done a great job to restrict the runrate.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:35:01 pm

Bipul Sharma's first over: The batsmen are becoming impatient gradually, looking desperately for boundaries. Taking risks and going for big shots. OUT! Rahane loses cool, mishits one to Yuvraj Singh at deep square leg, departs for 22. Ben Stokes is out to bat. Fruitful over for Bipul.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:30:31 pm

Nehra continues: Wide down the leg. The final over of the powerplay and no boundaries so far. False start and there seems to be some niggle. Nehra in discomfort, so are SRH. Nehra is off the field. Henriques finishes the over, CHANCE STRAIGHT AWAY, not attempted. Kaul had time to come forward and go for a diving catch, he instead stopped it. SIX! hits the bowler off the next, over long-on. The over proves to be expensive. Rahane makes room for the final delivery, hits it straight to mid on, gets a single. Only a six and no fours in the powerplay.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:23:01 pm

Rashid Khan's first over of the day: Tossed up at middle, Smith plays to midwicket, gets a single. What RPS need is a boundary. Though runs are coming in singles and doubles, boundaries will increase the confidence of the batsmen. Again a tossed up delivery at middle. Smith tries to flick the ball to square leg, it travels to mid on. Single taken off the final delivery.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:19:16 pm

Siddharth Kaul with the ball: Is that a four? No, great effort by Rashid Khan at deep square leg to slide and stop. DROPPED! A costly miss, this. Bipul, who has earlier pulled off a run out, drops Smith at short fine leg. Bipul went for reverse cupping and the ball bounced off his grip. RPS yet to fine first boundary. 4 overs down.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:16:18 pm

Bhuvneshwar Kumar continues: Keeps the over only to singles, RPS yet to find their first boundary and have won in-form Tripathy already. Smith will be eager to get a four to release some pressure off.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:10:33 pm

Ashish Nehra continues: Rahane plays across to midwicket, gets a couple. Plays the next straight to mid off, ball deviating away from Rahane, gets a single. Good length at middle to Tripathi, defends it to thirdman. Short, Tripathi comes down the crease, swings bat hard, misses. Given warning by umpire. RUN OUT! Tripathi plays it fine, to the fielder, and loses track of the ball. Bipul Sharma collects and executes a flawless throw to dismiss Tripathi. BIG WICKET!

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:05:10 pm

Bhuvneshwar Kumar opens bowling for SRH: Bhuvneshwar has dismissed Rahane six times already. Bowls just outside off-stump, confuses the batsmen. Almost an edge. Both Rahane and Tripathi off the mark with singles. Three runs off the first over.

Sat, 06 May 2017 04:03:14 pm

Teams: Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh, Moises Henriques, Naman Ojha (wk), Bipul Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Siddharth Kaul, Ashish Nehra Rising Pune Supergiant: Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith(c), Manoj Tiwary, Ben Stokes, MS Dhoni (wk), Dan Christian, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Imran Tahir

TOSS: Sunrisers Hyderabad win toss and elect to bowl.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry's live coverage of match 44 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal, Hyderabad. I am Paulami Chakraborty and will bring you updates from the high-profile clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS). It was against the defending champions SRH when MS Dhoni turned back the clock and inspired RPS to an astonishing fightback in the tournament. Since then his bat has fallen silent again and fans will hope the nation heartthrob to shine once more. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD, Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rising Pune Supergiant Match 44

RPS are a spot above SRH in the IPL 2017 points table. While RPS have 14 points from 11 matches, SRH are at 13 from as many games. The odds are in favour of Pune as they have the winning momentum and have won 2 out of their 3 encounters against this opposition. However, one must also remember the fact that SRH are the defending champions and have a quality side at disposal. SRH have been a dominant force at home and will look forward to maintain the unbeaten home run this season at home.

The match is also touted as the clash of two fine inspiring Australian cricketers. Australian skipper Steven Smith leads the RPS unit while his national side's deputy, David Warner, is in charge of the SRH unit, and also dons the Orange Cap. While RPS will be sweating over the fitness of Ashish Nehra, they will take solace from the fact that Bhuvneshwar Kumar has dismissed Ajinkya Rahane 6 times in IPL.

RPS have found a new star in Rahul Tripathi this season, and the Pune-based franchise will hope he continues to fire against the SRH bowling attack, which can be touted as the best in the tournament. A win for either side will see a shake-up in the points table, as the winner will displace Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) from the No.2 spot.

Squads:

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, Deepak Hooda, Naman Ojha (wk), Ben Cutting, Bipul Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Ashish Nehra, Ricky Bhui, Kane Williamson, Siddarth Kaul, Abhimanyu Mithun, Mustafizur Rahman, Barinder Sran, Vijay Shankar, Chris Jordan, Mohammad Nabi, Eklavya Dwivedi, Pravin Tambe, Ben Laughlin, Tanmay Agarwal, Mohammed Siraj

Rising Pune Supergiant: Steven Smith (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Manoj Tiwary, Ajinkya Rahane, Ashok Dinda, Rajat Bhatia, Mayank Agarwal, Ben Stokes, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Adam Zampa, Daniel Christian, Jaydev Unadkat, Usman Khawaja, Ankit Sharma, Faf du Plessis, Baba Aparajith, Ishwar Pandey, Shardul Thakur, Rahul Tripathi, Ankush Bains, Saurabh Kumar, Lockie Ferguson, Jaskaran Singh, Milind Tandon, Rahul Chahar
