Unadkat also made a hat-trick towards the end of the match by picking up wickets of Bipul Sharma, Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, making it easier for Pune to clinch the win against the hosts.
Requiring 13 off the final over from Unadkat, left-hander Sharma (8) failed to connect the first ball before holing out the second to Stokes at deep midwicket.
529 Runs scored by David Warner in this edition.
When will the SRH vs RPS IPL 2017 match be played? Who will win the battle this time?
Though Hyderabad hasn't performed well in away matches, they intend to take full advantage of playing at home with a strong batting line-up consisting of Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques and Kane Williamson. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar in the SRH Team has taken 21 Wickets out of 11 matches and he was in the 1st Place. This provided only the second instance in IPL history when no run came off the 20th over of the innings. With Pune bowlers finding their rhythm, it was getting hard for SRH to pick up the scoring rate.
Rising Pune Supergiant defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by four wickets in a crucial encounter.
Best final over in IPL?It was third hat-trick of the season. While Smith was caught by Bipul at short third man, Christian was holed out at long-on by Rashid. Boundaries were hard to score in the Powerplay despite having a wonderful player like Smith and Ajinkya Rahane.
Hyderabad lost 4 wickets in for just 19 runs in the last 3 overs.
"Brilliant! To get throught that low-scoring match was outstanding". While the trio of Thakur, Christian and Sundar didn't pick any wickets for their bowling efforts, Tahir got the wicket of Yuvraj Singh, which completely threw the Sunrisers' run-chase into disarray. I am trying to keep it simple and have the backing of Smith, MS and Stokes.
The former RPS skipper did show his big hitting skills, and hit two sixes and a four in the penultimate over. He bagged another four against Kaul in the final over.
