Titans innings

Over 16.3 || Score 147/2

A comprehensive win for Titans over Sunrisers. The South African club won the match by eight wickets with 21 balls to spare. They easily chase the modest total given by Sunrisers of 145 runs. One of the best opening partnerships between skipper Davids and Rudolph made the game lopsided. Where David Scored 64 runs, Rudolph scored unbeaten 49 to make sure that their team win the game quite comfortably.

AB de Villiers c Perera b I Sharma 9 (7b)

H Davids c Sammy b Steyn 64 (42b)

Over 15 || Score 133/2

After playing a match-winning knock for his team, skipper Davids was caught by Sammy off Steyn. He scored 64 runs in 42 balls, laced with seven fours and four sixes. Now it’s just a formality for Titans to win the match as they hardly need 13 runs in 30 balls to seal the match against Sunrisers and they have eight wickets in hand. But one of the most dangerous batsmen of this format, AB de Villiers failed to make an impact today and got out after scoring nine runs when Perera took his catch off Ishant Sharma in the 14th over.

Over 10 || Score 93/0

Titans are heading towards a comprehensive win over Sunrisers. Both the openers are still at the crease and scoring runs with an ease. Davids has already scored his half century, which is his second in last three games. Rudolph has also crossed the mark of 35 runs. Titans required 53 runs from 60 balls to seal the game.

Over 5 || Score 39/0

While chasing a modest total of 146 runs, Titans have got off to a decent start. Skipper Davids is looking in a good nick and has started playing big shots. The best part for Titans is that they haven’t lost any wicket. But Sunrisers need wickets if they want to win this match as they haven’t got much runs on the board.

Over 2 || Score 15/0

Like Titans, Sunrisers also started the proceedings with spin. Dhawan handed the ball to leg-spinner Karan Sharma to ball the first over. But Davids launched Sharma for a six over extra cover in the last ball of the over to collect nine runs from it. In the next over bowled by Steyn, Titans openers collected six runs to take their score to 15 runs without any loss.


Sunrisers Innings

Over 20 || Score 145/7

Parera, Duminy and Sammy three big hitters of the team also failed to play crucial innings and got out after scoring 11, 17 and 1 respectively. But in the last over Dale Steyn scored 21 runs off de Lange -- 6,4,6,4,0,1 – to take his team to a respectable total of 145. In the cameo of 27 runs Steyn used just 12 balls and scored three fours and two sixes. D Wiese remained the most successful bowler for the Titans after scalping three wickets in his four over quota and spent just 17 runs.

Sunrisers failed badly to capitalise on a good start given by their openers. In last five overs batting team lost two more wickets in the form of Samantray and Vihari, who got out cheaply at 0 and six repectively.

BB Samantray st Mosehle b Davids 0 (2b)

GH Vihari c Davids b Wiese 6 (9b)

Over 10 || Score 78/2

Both the openers are back in the pavilion. After the fall of Dhawan, Patel followed him as he also got out after an over. Wiese bowled Patel in the ninth over, who scored 26 runs in 24 balls. Now Duminy and Vihari are at the crease.

PA Patel b Wiese 26 (24b)


Over 7 || Score 64/1

Now Patel has also started dealing in boundaries. In the sixth over, Patel, first scored two boundaries off Morkel and in the last ball launched him for a maximum. Dhawan Out. Big blow for Sunrisers. Dhawan is back in the pavilion. Dhawan was caught by Morkel at third man off Wiese in the seventh over.

S Dhawan c Morkel b Wiese 37 (21b)


Over 5 || Score 46/0

Both the openers are looking in good nick, especially Dhawan, who is looking dangerous at the moment, as he has started collected boundaries at will. In the third over he scored two off Richards over and then again hit two in the next over by Morkel. Dhawan has quickly moved to 36 with the help of six boundaries and a six.

Over 2 || Score 12/0

Titans started off with spin. Skipper Davids bowled the first over and gave just six runs. Dhawan is at the crease and everyone is expecting another good innings from in-form southpaw, who is also the skipper of the Hyderabad team. After the end of two overs, Sunrisers only managed to score 12 runs without losing a wicket.


It’s a crucial tie for both the teams as they have four points each. Sunrisers are looking more solid on papers. But in T20 you never know, a good spell or a whirlwind cameo can change the course of the game pretty quickly.

Titans have won the toss and elected to field first.
