Hyderabad Heroes v Lahore Badshahs

HH v LB, Match 1: Hyderabad Heroes win inuguration match against Lahore Badshahs

Hyderabad Heroes defeated Lahore Badshahs by 18 runs through VJD method in the first match of the ICL 20s Indian Championship, Season-2 at the LB stadium Hyderabad. Local lad Ambati Rayudu won man of the match for his sparkling half century.
Earlier Lahore Badshahs captain Inzamam, won the toss and elected to field, wanting to take first advantage of the fresh pitch. The Badshahs struck early getting the dangerous Abdul Razzaq the second over, cheaply for 13 (7 balls). The experienced South paw Jimmy Maher took over the mantel of the innings and at the end of the fifth over took the Heroes'' score to 40 /1. The prodigal Rayudu also got into the act showing some breathtaking strokes. Maher and Rayudu looked in great touch doing the basics right, of running hard between the wickets and percentage stroke-play, working up a good partnership for the Heroes. At the half way mark of their innings, Heroes were placed comfortable at 75/1.
Two big sixes of Saqlain's consecutive deliveries in the 12th over, from Hyderabad's favourite son Rayudu, saw the young quality-act get the first fifty of Indian Cricket League Season-2. Rayudu was batting in the zone belting the experienced Badshahs bowlers all over the park. Inzamam brought on his premier pacer MD Sami in the 14th over who got the important breakthrough cutting short a brilliant Rayudu' innings of 58 runs off 42 balls ,including five sixes and one four. Quick wickets of Maher and the dangerous Kemp took some steam off the Heroes' innings in the 17th over.
The half way mark of the match saw the Heroes set the Badshahs a competitive target of 160 runs. The Badshahs reply got a setback before a start with a late- bowling penalty of six runs, revising their target to 166. The Heroes struck early with Razzaq sending the explosive Farhat back in the first over. An unfortunate power failure cast its shadow on the exciting encounter, resulting in a calculation of the interruption rule (VJD method), resulting in the match being awarded to the Hyderabad Heroes.
HH v LB, Match 1: Hyderabad Heroes 165 for 6 (20 overs) beat Lahore Badshahs 30 for 2 (6 overs) by 18 runs (VJD method)
