IPL 2018, SRH vs MI: Here are the final Playing eleven

"The last ball can go either way so it was nice to win", Williamson said.

Hyderabad had a lucky escape in their last game as they had to rely on big Billy Stanlake to take them to a victory off the last ball. He dismissed both Kishan (9) and Lewis (29) in the same over. Suryakumar Yadav is the leading run scorer for the side after two games and Kieron Pollard has also had mix form with the bat.

Vinay Kumar has bowled 3.5 overs in this tournament so far and has conceded 65 runs at an economy rate of 16.95 runs per over. Small targets can often be tricky ones and one could say that the SRH batsmen became a little complacent once Shikhar Dhawan departed. Ben Cutting (9), Yadav (28) and Pradeep Sangwan (4) were the next three wickets to fall. They had no reason to attack young legspinner Mayank Markande. Rashid Khan asked her to be ready to face him when bowl to her in Sussex. He now has 123 runs and displaces Kolkata's Andre Russell who has so far scored a total of 103 runs. To add insult to injury, the ball went on to cross the boundary. And in this shortest cricketing format, everybody wants to score as runs as possible. The tiniest edge of his bat caught the ball and Kishan took the catch off Mustafizur Rahman's bowling.

SRH seemed to be in control as they needed four off the final five balls, but they could manage just four off the next four deliveries.

In any match, players have to work very hard to win "Man of the Match" or Man of the Series in any series.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: The only worry for SRH would be Bhuvneshwar's sore back that kept him out of the previous contest.

But SRH still had some good players. He followed it up wickets of Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey and Shakib Al Hasan to trigger a batting collapse that saw Sunrisers Hyderabad crumble from 62/0 to 89/4.

Before his over, they had been scoring at nearly 10 an over. You can even watch the live match online on Hotstar as well. We also did not bowl to our best. Kaul came in but he fell to Rahman, after scoring no runs in four balls. Finally, it was Stanlake's turn.

With just one wicket in hand, Hooda (32*) came to the rescue of his team.

Talking about Markande, he said that the bowler is impressive in the field. In the very first ball, Hooda hit a six.

Sam Billings' 23-ball 56 coupled with Shane Watson's 19-ball 42 helped CSK pull off a heist as they beat KKR by five wickets in a thrilling game on Tuesday.

Mumbai, still searching for their first win of the season, are in sixth place, but could drop to second-bottom of the eight-team league if Royal Challengers Bangalore defeat Kings XI Punjab in today's match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
