He scored 42 runs in 25 balls and hit four fours and three sixes during this inning. Markram and Pooran shared 60 runs in 35 balls for the fourth wicket.

Williamson failed to play the captaincy innings
Chasing a target of 208 runs, Hyderabad captain Williamson failed to play the captaincy innings, and once again disappointed in the batting for Hyderabad. On the second ball of the fifth over of the innings, the inswing ball of Anrich Nortje was hit and the ball took the outer edge of his bat and reached the hands of Rishabh Pant behind the wicket. In this high-scoring match, his bat got only four runs in 11 balls. He played ten dot balls.
