117.717.6: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Riyan Parag, Single to end the 18th. That was a tough chance for Kumar. A full toss, Parag hits it down the ground. The ball goes to Kumar at a good height but very quickly. He gets hands but cannot hold it. Single taken.
217.617.5: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Riyan Parag, Two now! This one is low full toss, it is flicked wide of long on and they get two.
617.517.4: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Riyan Parag, SIX! BANG! Bhuvneshwar misses his length this time. Full and just outside off, Parag gets under it and pumps it over long on for a biggie.
117.417.3: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Jos Buttler, Just a single! Good from Kumar so far. Very full and around middle, Jos can only hit it to long on for one.

116.816.6: Vijay Shankar to Jos Buttler, CENTURY FOR BUTTLER! Jos Buttler is back in form. What a knock. A 56-ball century for Buttler, his maiden in the Indian T20 League. He didn't start well as he was struggling to time it but he just kept going better and better. He gets to the ton by working this length ball around middle towards mid-wicket for one. Now, he will target to finish things well for his side.
416.716.5: Vijay Shankar to Jos Buttler, FOUR! Slashed away! Buttler moves to 99. Length ball, outside off, Buttler reaches out and slams it through point. A boundary for him.
016.616.4: Vijay Shankar to Sanju Samson, OUT! TAKEN! Very good catch near the rope by Samad. The stand is broken. A knuckle ball from Shankar. Samson looks to go big and he targets the long off fence. However, he fails to get the timing right and gets more height than distance. Samad at long off settles himself, times his jump to perfection, and takes the catch nicely. Maintains his balance as well. Fine knock from the skipper ends.
016.516.4: Vijay Shankar to Jos Buttler, TWO WIDES! This one is slipped down the leg side. Bairstow fails to collect it cleanly and they sneak one extra.

116.316.2: Vijay Shankar to Sanju Samson, In the air... safe! Three fielders try to catch it but none can. Shankar bowls a short ball, it is the slower one. Sanju waits and waits and then at the last moment looks to hit over the keeper. However, he fails to time it well. The ball goes behind the keeper. He tries to get there. And so does the short third man and short fine leg fielder. But none can cover the ground quickly enough to take the catch. A single, in the end. 
016.216.2: Vijay Shankar to Sanju Samson, WIDE! Shankar tries to stay away from the firing line but slips this one way outside off. Wided.
016.116.1: Vijay Shankar to Sanju Samson, Full and wide outside off, Samson reaches out and looks to drive but gets an under edge. The ball goes to the keeper. A dot.

614.614.6: Mohammad Nabi to Jos Buttler, SIX! BANG! All the way! Massive over. 21 off it. This is floated around middle, once again on a fullish length. Buttler deposits this one over the deep square leg with a big slog.
414.514.5: Mohammad Nabi to Jos Buttler, FOUR! Another boundary. Buttler is indeed on fire. Once again a full ball from Nabi, this time Buttler hits it to the left of the bowler. Nabi tries to get a hand to it but he hardly has time to react. The ball whizzes to the fence in a flash. 
014.414.4: Mohammad Nabi to Jos Buttler, Dot now! Fuller and around off, pushed back tot he bowler.
414.314.3: Mohammad Nabi to Jos Buttler, FOUR! More runs! This one is drilled down the ground. Too full as Nabi overcorrects his length. Buttler drills it through mid on for a boundary.
614.214.2: Mohammad Nabi to Jos Buttler, SIX! Buttler is on fire here now! He moves to 70. It is not too bad a ball. Touch short but Buttler is on the back foot. He picks it up and deposits it over the long on fence.

14 Overs | Runs : 125/1 | Run rate : 8.93

The fielder from long off runs to his left, but loses the race as the ball touches the ropes. 
012.412.4: Sandeep Sharma to Jos Buttler, Way outside off and it is left alone. Wide signalled. 
612.312.3: Sandeep Sharma to Jos Buttler, SIX! That brings up Jos Buttler's fifty too. Has been a good knock so far, but now, with Samson by his side, the Englishman will be look to amp it up. A length ball, around off, Jos Buttler stands tall and clobbers this one over long off. 
212.212.2: Sandeep Sharma to Jos Buttler, TOP EDGE BUT SAFE! Jos Buttler is a lucky man as he had not played that well. A short ball, around off, Jos Buttler looks to pull but the ball takes the top edge and goes towards the fine leg region, where it lands safe. A couple.

110.610.6: Rashid Khan to Jos Buttler, Shortish and on middle, punched through mid-wicket for a single. Rashid is done for the day and he finishes with figures of 4-0-24-1, a good spell but they would have wanted another wicket from him.

5 Overs | Runs : 33/1 | Run rate : 6.6
14.64.6: Rashid Khan to Jos Buttler, In the air... safe! Did the fielder decided to go for the catch a bit late? Floated around off, Buttler comes down the track and looks to go over long on. He fails to get to the pitch of the ball and hits it high in the air towards long on. Shankar there is in two minds. He decides to go for the catch a bit too late and the ball lands shortly.

02.62.6: Rashid Khan to Yashasvi Jaiswal, OUT! LBW! Plumb this time! It is Rashid who wins the battle, eventually. Jaiswal has to go. The ploy to bring Rashid works for Williamson here. This one is quicker through the air and around off and middle, Jaiswal stays back and tries to flick but misses to put any bat on this square one. An appeal and the umpire raises his finger this time. Jaiswal has a chat with his senior partner at the other end. They do not go for the review. Rashid has got the breakthrough. Replays later show that it would've hit the middle pole. So, a good call not to review.
02.52.5: Rashid Khan to Yashasvi Jaiswal, Very full and around off, drilled to the cover fiedler.
42.42.4: Rashid Khan to Yashasvi Jaiswal, FOUR! Crunched! Jaiswal is taking Rashid on here. He attacked him from the start and he is winning the battle so far. A flatter ball, this one is just outside off, Jaiswal waits on the back foot and crunches it through covers.
02.32.3: Rashid Khan to Yashasvi Jaiswal, FOUR LEG BYES! This is on the pads, Jaiswal looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pad. The ball then goes past the keeper and to the fine leg fence.
02.22.2: Rashid Khan to Yashasvi Jaiswal, NOT OUT! Missing the stumps! So, Hyderabad lose their review very early. Fuller ball, this one is around off. Jaiswal once again tries to play the sweep but this time he misses to make any connection and gets hit on the pad. A big appeal but given not out. Kane signals for the review. Ultra Edge shows no bat. Ball Tracker shows it is missing the stumps. Jaiswal is safe.
42.12.1: Rashid Khan to Yashasvi Jaiswal, FOUR! And Jaiswal welcomes him with a boundary. Rashid floats thie one on middle, Jaiswal gets down and sweeps it over backward square leg for a boundary.
