For SRH, Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were bowled superbly with Rashin claiming three wickets in four overs, conceding only 14 runs. We thought dew would play a massive role and the ball would come on well, but we can't give excuses at this time.

"Rashid knows what he has to do, the way he delivered for us against Delhi was great. We will make sure we do when we play here next", Shreyas Iyer said in the post-match presentation.

While the limits were tough to come by, Warner and Bairstow were ruthless with their running in between the wickets to keep the pressure on Delhi, who were happy to see the back of the previous in the 10th over, gloving behind as he attempted to reverse sweep Amit Mishra (2- 35). The decision was believed to be a good one as their bowlers showed some discipline in the beginning. In what was a sluggish pitch, SRH did well to score 162/4 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Opener Bairstow and skipper David Warner provided a flawless start to the Hyderabad-based franchise as the duo not only brought up crucial knocks of 53 and 45 runs, respectively, but also shared a 77-run partnership for the opening wicket.

Williamson and Bairstow after providing 52 run stand for the third wicket, Bairstow was the third victim of Rabada in 17.5 over Bairstow finished with 53 off 48 balls with 2 fours and 1 six.

Kane Williamson also chipped in with a knock of 41 runs to take SRH's total past the 160-run mark.
