It was once again the Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan show for Hyderabad. Batting first, Dhawan and Williamson once again stuck it out in the middle as the pair kept the runs flowing between the two. Dhawan’s coming back to form after injury has benefitted Williamson more than the Sunrisers. Allowing Williamson to play with a little less load off his back has seen Williamson come into his true form, knocking up half-centuries for fun. With the like of Kohli, de Villiers, Gayle, Watson and some other magnificent batsmen playing in the tournament, Williamson has set an altogether different benchmark for himself by stroking the ball around with so much ease. Another fiery for him along with Dhawan’s 79 took his side to 179.
CSK’s revelation this season Ambati Rayadu was out to prove a point though. His superb 100 off 62 saw him score the most number of sixes and take his side to victory by 8 wickets. It was an innings which saw him come of age, guiding his team to the vital play-off spot.
