19.1 - Bhuvneshwar to Raina, FOUR, with a concoction of timing and placement, Raina backs away and carves it to the left of the backward point fielder and it runs away to the fence. In fact, the fielder at backward point was late to dive across and as a result, could not get to the ball. Warner was not happy with the effort for sure and gave him a glare

17.4 - Barinder to Raina, FOUR, Barinder tries the back of the hand slower one, but Raina picks it and hoicks it to the mid-wicket fence. It was a meaty blow from him. On the other hand, Barinder bowled it at 86ks

14.3 - Mustafizur to Raina, FOUR, the trademark lofted shot from Raina. Very full and on the stumps, Raina lifts it to long-on, where Warner runs around the boundary, but it goes through his hands as he looks to stop the boundary. It facilitates Raina to collect a four

9.5 - Deepak Hooda to D Karthik, FOUR, very full and on leg-stump, Karthik sits on one knee and sweeps it to deep backward square leg. The fielder in the deep runs around the circumference, but does not succeed in his endeavour. Karthik picked the bones out of that delivery

8.0 - Bipul Sharma to Raina, FOUR, a graceful shimmy, a high backlift and an elegant followthrough that almost pats the back. That's the Raina we know. Reads the length early, jumps out and lofts it over long-on nonchalantly

5.1 - Deepak Hooda to Raina, FOUR, you don't toss them up here, Hooda! Outside off, Raina gets forward and lofts it inside-out over extra cover

4.5 - Barinder to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, no. No. No. Lengths don't matter when Brendon McCullum decides to swing it. Hits a length ball on leg-stump across the line and uses those stretched arms to power it over backward square leg again

2.3 - Bhuvneshwar to Raina, FOUR, tests the bald patch mid-pitch, the ball arrives slowly for Raina to roll his wrists on the tuck. Slid back, gave him room and let his wrists take over to dispatch this behind square on the leg-side

2.1 - Bhuvneshwar to Raina, FOUR, how good was that? Fullish length on off, Raina kicks his back leg in the air and powers this straight drive with elegance

1.1 - Barinder to Raina, FOUR, that called for it. Half-volley down leg, Raina just has to shave it off his pads with his wrists. Over backward square leg and off she goes

0.5 - Bhuvneshwar to Raina, FOUR, this Uttar Pradesh connection ruins moments. A wicket last ball and this time a full length delivery has been creamed through covers by Raina. Leant forward and eased himself into a flowing drive. No one moved

4.3 - Barinder to Brendon McCullum, SIX, take that! That's an axe swing. Where's the bat? Length ball, McCullum swings his sword and clobbers it over deep backward square leg. Mighty

20.0 - Bhuvneshwar to Steyn, out Caught by Eoin Morgan!! Back of the hand slower one from Bhuvneshwar, Steyn can't pick it and slogs it to long-on, who takes it easily. In the final over, Bhuvneshwar snared three scalps for the HYD camp. Steyn c Eoin Morgan b Bhuvneshwar 1(2)

19.3 - Bhuvneshwar to Akshdeep Nath, out Caught by Bipul Sharma!! Bhuvneshwar continues to bowl a slew of slower ones and picks up another. He is on a hat-trick now. Nath clubs it to cover where Bipul grabs it easily. Akshdeep Nath c Bipul Sharma b Bhuvneshwar 5(10)

19.2 - Bhuvneshwar to Raina, out Caught by Henriques!! Raina's enterprising knock comes to an end. The slower one from Bhuvneshwar, Raina gets his heave off the toe-end and Henriques at long-on snaffles an easy one. Raina c Henriques b Bhuvneshwar 75(51) [4s-9]

16.5 - Mustafizur to Jadeja, out Bowled!! Now, that felt as if it was a fast offspinner from Mustafizur as he picks up the key scalp of Jadeja. The off-cutter from Mustafizur, Jadeja attempts to hoick it across the line and connects with thin air. The ball crashes into the off-stump. Jadeja b Mustafizur 14(14)

13.1 - Barinder to Dwayne Bravo, out Caught by Bhuvneshwar!! Another incision has been made. It is Bravo who has been chugged down. GUJ are losing the plot here. Shorter in length and angled away from Bravo, he pulls it to Bhuvneshwar at deep backward square leg, who grabs an easy catch with both hands. Barinder rolled his fingers on that one. Dwayne Bravo c Bhuvneshwar b Barinder 8(12)

10.0 - Deepak Hooda to D Karthik, out Caught by Bhuvneshwar!! What have you done Karthik? Low full toss from Hooda, Karthik sits on one knee and hammers the sweep to Bhuvneshwar at deep backward square leg, who seemed to have taken it on his first attempt. But wait the ball pops out for a moment. Bhuvi, though, keeps his presence of mind and pouches it on his second attempt. D Karthik c Bhuvneshwar b Deepak Hooda 8(9) [4s-1]

7.2 - Bipul Sharma to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by Deepak Hooda!! Pin-drop silence. Baz departs! Nothing special about this one. Just a regular left-arm orthodox outside off that refuses to spin, McCullum opts for the slog sweep but just couldn't connect it well. Gets it off the toe end and finds deep mid-wicket to perfection. Brendon McCullum c Deepak Hooda b Bipul Sharma 18(17) [4s-1 6s-1]

0.4 - Bhuvneshwar to Finch, out Bowled!! Get a wheelchair for Finch! No feet whatsoever. The ball was swinging, Kumar kept pitching it up and this time gets the ball to dart in viciously. Befuddles a flat-footed Finch who was looking to play straight but had made enough room to see the ball cut into him make a mess of the stumps behind. Finch b Bhuvneshwar 0(4)

12.0 - Deepak Hooda to Raina, 1 run, slower through the air and on off-stump, Raina punches it to long-off. He completes his fifty

5.5 - Deepak Hooda to Raina, 1 run, 50 partnership up!! Loops this up but cuts the width outside off with the angle and lack of spin, Raina could only push it to mid-off

14.5 - Jadeja to Warner, FOUR, there it is. Hyderabad win by 10 wickets. T-e-n w-i-c-k-e-t-s. Yes, you read it right. Width dished out as dessert. Actually not much width, this spun back in but Warner can do that to the commentators. Dabs it ever so late through third man, collects a boundary and lets out a cheeky grin

13.4 - D Kulkarni to Dhawan, FOUR, quite possible that this is Dhawan with a Warner mask. Short, wide, mediocre, poor. Thumped with a cut wide of backward point

11.5 - Dwayne Bravo to Dhawan, FOUR, slower ball gone awry...at waist height. Dhawan pulls (yes, that high) and collects a relieving boundary through mid-wicket. I could almost here a "Phew.."

11.4 - Dwayne Bravo to Dhawan, FOUR, what was that? A grass-slash of a sweep to a delivery down leg. Lovely. Sees the full delivery down leg, closes himself up and adjusts with the dip to sweep it through fine leg

10.0 - Tambe to Warner, FOUR, touch short and Warner makes him pay. Rocks back and goes "Kabooooom" through mid-wicket. Nailed the pull!

8.2 - Dwayne Bravo to Dhawan, FOUR, please help-me delivery from Deejay Bravo. Length down leg, Dhawan says "Thank you" as he glances one off his pads

5.5 - Raina to Warner, FOUR, dragged his length back. kept a bit low as well, Warner crouches low and pulls it wide of mid-on. He looks unstoppable at the moment...

5.4 - Raina to Warner, FOUR, flatter and quicker outside off, Warner jumps and allows his muscly arms to take over. Meaty blow through the covers!

4.2 - Dwayne Bravo to Dhawan, FOUR, 50 up for HYD. Full toss, right in the smacking zone for Dhawan, pulled nonchalantly through mid-wicket

3.5 - P Kumar to Warner, FOUR, stand and smoke stuff from Warner! Just watches the ball all along and deposits it straight down the ground. Sheer power!

3.2 - P Kumar to Warner, FOUR, the pocket rocket! What's he got in those stubby arms? Wanders slightly around the crease and absolutely bludgeons this length ball through the covers

3.1 - P Kumar to Warner, FOUR, so what says David Warner! How's that for confidence? Moves fractionally leg-side to create room and clatters this fullish length delivery wide of mid-off. Go, chase that!

1.0 - Steyn to Warner, FOUR, up and over! That's David Warner for you. Sees the width and swings his arms, clobbered over a leaping backward point

0.4 - Steyn to Warner, FOUR, rolls his fingers on this pacy off-cutter, bowled at 140ks. Warner prods forward and goes hard on the push, kisses the outside edge and sneaks past the lone slip. Pace - Your friend and enemy too, Steyn?

5.1 - Raina to Dhawan, no run, dropped? Nah, it hit the thigh pad. Flighted down leg and Dhawan misses on the flick

14.3 - Jadeja to Dhawan, 2 runs, what's rarer than Halley's comet? Shikhar Dhawan's form. Even rarer is a half-century. These days, mind you. Shimmies down, flicks this and collects a brace to deep mid-wicket

11.0 - Jadeja to Warner, 1 run, here's the century stand. Allows this very flat delivery to come in and then razors it behind square on the leg-side

7.0 - Tambe to Warner, 1 run, second successive fifty for Warner! Leading from the front is the HYD skipper, gets to the landmark with a nudge wide of mid-wicket
