Hyderabad: Cameron White hadn't made too much of a contribution in regulation play, scoring just five as Sunrisers Hyderabad tied Royal Challengers Bangalore's 130, but exploded in the Super Over with two giant sixes off R Vinay Kumar to set up Hyderabad's second victory on the bounce.
White's fireworks propelled Hyderabad to 20 in the Super Over on Sunday (April 7) night at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in the Pepsi IPL, a score Dale Steyn defended well by conceding only 15 to Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli.
Boundaries had been hard to come by all match long – 40 overs combined had thrown up just 18 fours and two sixes – but in the two Super Overs, there were three sixes and a four, with White the principal contributor. "You know when Chris Gayle’s batting in the other Super Over that you have to get a decent score," said White after the game. "Thankfully, Thisara (Perera) and myself were able to get a total that Dale was able to defend. Dale bowled a brilliant over, a lot of credit has to go to Dale because bowling to Chris and Virat is definitely not easy."
