Head, the Australian left-handed opener, who hit that blistering 137 in the ODI World Cup final against India, smashed a 24-ball 62 (9x4, 3x6) to set the ball rolling for SRH. Young left-hander Abhishek Sharma (63, 23b, 3x4, 7x6) joined the party with Head to blow away the MI attack. Skipper Hardik Pandya’s decision to field first backfired as an avalanche of runs flowed right from the first over. Chants of “Rohit, Rohit” reverberated the stadium as the India skipper quietly patrolled the cover region. Later on, the SA duo of Aiden Markram (42 not out; 28b, 2x4, 1x6) and hard-hitting Heinrich Klaasen (80 not out 34b, 4x4, 7x6) joined the run-riot with a 116-run stand off 55 balls. As many as 19 fours and 18 sixes were hit by SRH.

Head was brought in place of Marco Jansen and immediately made an impact for his team. Young SA left-arm pacer Kwena Maphaka had a nightmarish game. Head struck 6,6,4,4 in Maphaka’s second over.  Abhishek was not left far beyond. Joining Head after Pandya dismissed Mayank Agarwal in the fifth over, Abhishek’s first four shots were sixes, three off leg-spinner Piyush Chawla and one off Gerald Coetzee. Maphaka was mauled again in his third over as he leaked 20 runs. Coetzee could not control to runs too as he went for 23.

Surprisingly, Jasprit Bumrah was overlooked even as SRH massacred the MI attack. He was brought in for the fourth over and conceded only five runs. But the Indian pacer had to wait for nine overs before he was brought back in the 13th over.
