Punjab skipper, KL Rahul says that if they lose wickets in the Powerplay was always going to be tough especially with only 6 batters. Tells losing Mayank was tough and tells that whatever they hit in the air found the fielder. Credits the bowlers for pulling things back in the death and states it as a positive. Says Pooran is batting really well and it is a joy to watch him bat. Tells if they get a decent start up front they know Nichollas can do the job. States Bishnoi has not been afraid whenever he has asked him to bowl and adds that it is a joy to watch a youngster taking responsibility. Tells everyone is working hard and are in a good head space but feels sometimes it does not come off and one needs to be patient and not panic and back them.
The Hyderabad bowling was very good! However, their fifth bowler did take a pounding. Sharma did take the wicket of Rahul but he along with Samad went for above 40 in their 2 overs. However, the rest were excellent, especially Rashid who is back to his best. The three pacers were also impressive and hence, those two overs did not make a lot of difference. A very complete performance from Hyderabad and Warner will be very pleased.
A thumping win for Hyderabad! IUt was never in doubt to be honest after they scored 200 courtesy Bairstow and Warner. The former was the mainstay but it is their partnership which took them to that total. Also, chasing such a big total, Punjab also needed a good start from their openers who have been so influential for them but that was not the case. Also, they were three even before they crossed 60. They looked down and out at that time but Pooran came out all guns blazing. He got Punjab back in the game single-handedly. He though failed to get support at the other end and to chase this kind of a target alone, is an improbable one.

OUT! CAUGHT! That is it! Comprehensive win for Hyderabad and Natarajan finishes with two wickets. Full around off, Arshdeep hits it uppishly straight to Warner at mid off. Too safe a pair of hands to drop those. HYDERABAD WIN BY 69 RUNS!
16.4 overs (0 Run)
Another ball in the block hole. Arshdeep manages to defend it.
16.3 overs (0 Run)
Very full on off, Arshdeep jams it out.
Arshdeep Singh is the last man in.
16.2 overs (0 Run)
OUT! The sweet sound of Timber! First wicket for Natarajan in this innings! A perfect yorker on middle and off, it would trouble any top batsman so it is too good for a number 11. Cottrell is slow to get his bat down and Natarajan strikes. Just a wicket away are Hyderabad.
16.1 overs (1 Run)
Full around off, Bishnoi runs it down to third man for a single.
Rashid Khan is done from this end so who does Warner call now to do the formalities? It is T Natarajan.
15.6 overs (0 Run)
Slower one on off, Cottrell defends it. 71 needed in 4 overs just in case you were wondering.
15.5 overs (1 Run)
Another short one around the body, Bishnoi pulls it to fine leg for one.
15.4 overs (0 Run)
Typical pace bowler’s response. He gets hit for a boundary so he bangs it in short! Bishnoi looks to pull but gets hit on the grill.
15.3 overs (4 Runs)
FOUR! Bishnoi did the job with the ball and he will try to do something with the bat as well. Full on middle and off, Bishnoi lofts it straight down the ground and gets a boundary.
15.2 overs (0 Run)
Another one at the stumps, Bishnoi defends it.
15.1 overs (0 Run)
Full on off, Bishnoi defends it.
