Chasing a massive 209-run target Sunrisers Hyderabad had a flying start with openers Mayank Agarwal and Abhishek Sharma taking the team's total beyond the 50-run mark in just 4.3 overs.

At the end of powerplay, SRH had put on 65/1 in six overs. Andre Russell who had wreaked havoc with the bat also shined with the ball dismissing Abhishek Sharma for 32 from 19 balls reducing the 2016 champions to 71/2 in 7.2 overs.
