Hyderabad won the toss and decided to bat first. Abhishek Sharma and Anmolpreet Singh opened the inning while Yudhvir Singh started with the new ball for Lucknow. Hyderabad started well but Yudhvir Singh dismissed Abhishek Sharma in his second over as Lucknow got an early breakthrough in the game. Rahul Tripathi got off with a boundary and tried to construct a partnership with Anmolpreet. He also joined the party with few boundaries and despite losing an early wicket, Hyderabad regained control. It was the last over of the powerplay when Tripathi lost his wicket to Yash Thakur after scoring 20 runs.

Skipper Aiden Markram took charge and started well. Anmolpreet kept himself busy scoring boundaries while Markram brought stability. That didn’t go for long as the veteran Amit Mishra struck for Lucknow in the ninth over. He dismissed Anmolpreet for 36 as Hyderabad lost their third wicket for 82 runs. Markram’s International teammate Klaasen joined him and started to punish the bowlers. Klassen got off to a brilliant start with his ability to power-hitting in the middle and death overs.

After building a 33-run partnership, Krunal Pandya scalped the wicket of Markram for 28 runs and Lucknow once again backed themselves into the match. Krunal Pandya then gave another blow by dismissing Phillips for a duck in the next delivery. Abdul Samad who has been exceptional lately, joined the crease alongside Klaasen. The power-hitters paired up and constructed a much-needed 58-run partnership to help Hyderabad reach a very good total on that surface.

Avesh Khan sent Klaasen home for 47 runs in the last bowl of the 19th over. He missed out on his well-deserved half-century but did his job pretty well. Samad remained not out and returned with 37 runs. Hyderabad scored 182 after playing the whole 20 overs.
