Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) produced a disciplined all-round performance to defeat Mumbai Indians (MI) by one wicket in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday.
Hooda stepped up to the challenge by smashing a Cutting full toss for a six over extra cover, the first of Hyderabad's innings.
The real action unfolded in the last over. But with Deepak Hooda holding his nerve to take Sunrisers Hyderabad to a position where they needed one run off one ball and Billy Stanlake hitting a four off the last ball, victory finally belonged to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Skipper Kane Williamson (6) edged one off Mustafizur Rahaman to Ishan Kishan behind the stumps. In the very next over, Dhawan, who seemed good in the middle, was also sent packing. Rashid Khan joined Pathan in the dressing room in the very next delivery after being dismissed off a golden duck.
Hooda, however, tried to narrow the gap between their score and the target.

Mayank Markande, the 20-year-old leg-spinner, had brought Mumbai back in the game by picking up the crucial wickets of Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey and Shakib Al Hasan. The scoreboard was then reading 137/9.
Mumbai Indians weaved magic yet again at the venue of their unprecedented third IPL triumph to come back from the dead, but were pipped at the finishing line by Deepak Hooda, the man who they doled out INR 3.6 crores for at the auction. In the very first over, captain Rohit Sharma (11) and fellow opener Evin Lewis scored just one run off six balls. For Hyderabad, Sandeep Sharma, Billy Stanlake and Siddarth Kaul took two wickets each. He dismissed both Kishan (9) and Lewis (29) in the same over.
In Kaul, Sandeep's state-mate at Punjab, Sunrisers have an equally effective bowler.
The highly rated uncapped all-rounder teased to cut loose like he had done at the Wankhede against Chennai, only for Shakib-al-Hasan to halt his charge and further dent Mumbai. Kieron Pollard played a late hand of 28 off 23 deliveries but the innings barely crawled.
IT may not have been at the Sydney Cricket Ground on New Year's Day, but Billy Stanlake pulled off his best Michael Bevan impression at the flawless time for Sunrisers Hyderabad against the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League overnight. The Sunrisers slid from 62 for one to 94 for four and 137 for eight with leggie Markande upstaging Rashid Khan's remarkable returns of one for 13 from four overs as Mumbai managed 147 for eight.
