Match Analysis

Hyderabad after being asked to bat posted 182 for nine. In response, Punjab lost early wickets but managed to take the game to the last over and managed 180 for six.

Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma yet again took Hyderabad off to a flying start. But after that things changed drastically for the visitors as they faced a terrible collapse.

They were reduced to 100 for five and were under immense pressure. However, it was then that Nitish Kumar Reddy (64: 37b, 4x4, 5x6) bailed his team out of trouble with his brilliant half-century. Abdul Samad (25:12b, 5x4) supported him as the duo put on 50 runs.

Thanks to their effort, Hyderabad posted a total of 182. For Punjab, Arshdeep Singh was the pick of bowlers with his figures of four for 29.

Punjab were off to the worst possible start with the bat as they lost three quick wickets and were reduced to 20 for three. Sam Curran (29:22b, 2x4, 2x6) and Sikander Raza (28:22b, 2x4, 2x6) played handy knocks for the team but their wickets put Punjab under pressure.

Shashank Singh (46 not out:25b, 6x4, 1x6) and Ashutosh Sharma (33 not out:15b, 3x4, 2x6) tried their best and took the team close but fell short of the target by just two runs.
