While chasing a mountain like total, Sunrisers Hyderabad openers thought attack is the best option ahead. They fully utilized the power play overs and hit the loose balls on offer. After the power play was done, Manish Pandey was cleaned up by Mustafizur Rahman on 31. Jonny Bairstow too followed the suit in the 8th over, falling prey to Rahul Tewatia.
Kane Williamson valued his wicket and did not play any rash shot except for the ball he got out to Kartik Tyagi for 20. Vijay Shankar failed once again. Mohammad Nabi struck some clean blows in middle order but he was picked up by Mustafizur Rahman.
By then, the required run rate had gone beyond the control of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Abdul Samad and Kedar Jadhav tried to rescue the team but they couldn't as Hyderabad finished with a total of 165 for 8 in 20 overs, losing the match by 55 runs.
