Match Highlights

Bhilwara Kings Innings

Winning the toss, Bhilwara Kings elected to bat first, hoping to set a challenging total for Urbanrisers. Tillakratne Dilshan and Lendl Simmons opened the innings for the Kings, looking to provide a solid foundation. However, the Kings suffered an early blow when Solomon Mire departed for just 1 run in the first over, dismissed by Chris Mpofu. Despite the early setback, Simmons and Dilshan displayed resilience and determination, forging a promising partnership. They steadied the innings and built a solid platform for the Kings. The duo added 38 runs in quick time, taking advantage of the powerplay overs. Tillakratne Dilshan, in particular, showcased his batting prowess by reaching a well-deserved half-century. He played some delightful shots and looked set for a big score. However, his innings was cut short when Asghar Afghan dismissed him for 53 runs. It was a crucial breakthrough for Urbanrisers as they aimed to restrict the Kings' total.

After Dilshan's dismissal, the responsibility fell on the middle-order batsmen to accelerate the scoring rate. Yusuf Pathan and Robin Bist played crucial cameos, adding valuable runs to the total. Pathan scored 34 runs, while Bist contributed with a quickfire knock. However, the Kings couldn't capitalize on the partnership and lost wickets at regular intervals. Despite their best efforts, Bhilwara Kings could only manage to post a total of 144/6 in their allotted 20 overs. Urbanrisers' bowlers put up an impressive performance, restricting the Kings' batsmen. Pawan Suyal was the pick of the bowlers, returning figures of 2-27 in his four overs.


Urbanrisers Hyderabad Innings

Chasing a target of 145 runs, Urbanrisers got off to a fiery start, thanks to the opening partnership between Dwayne Smith and Lendl Simmons. However, the Kings fought back, picking up two quick wickets to put pressure on the Urbanrisers' batsmen. Bhilwara Kings' bowlers made a strong comeback after the initial onslaught from Urbanrisers' openers. Christopher Barnwell dismissed Martin Guptill for 18 runs, while Rahul Sharma removed Dwayne Smith for 25 runs. These two quick wickets slowed down Urbanrisers' momentum and gave the Kings hope of a comeback. However, Gurkeerat Singh Mann and Rikki Clarke had other plans. They formed a crucial partnership, taking Urbanrisers closer to the target. The duo played sensibly, rotating the strike and punishing the loose deliveries. The partnership flourished, reaching 43 runs and posing a significant threat to the bowlers.
