[Cricket Results] – Punjab Claims Both Caps in Rout of Hyderabad

In a clinical rout of the Sunrisers a pair of Punjab players earned both the orange and the purple cap as the tournament’s highest run getter and wicket taker respectively. Glenn Maxwell soared his tournament runs total to 279 with a spectacular hurricane of 95 runs to fortify his early orange cap claim. Lakshmipathy Balaji took four wickets during Kings XI’s attack to leap frog KKR’s Sunil Narine for the purple cap. By loading match data in SAP HANA we can create insight-laden visualizations of Punjab’s dominate victory.


After a pair of quiet overs the Kings XI found their swing and scored 16 runs in the third over. Then in four additional overs Punjab scored 15 or more runs including a mammoth 13th over of 25 runs and finished their innings with a lofty target of 193 runs. With SAP Lumira we create a Manhattan chart of the match’s action. Kings XI’s bowlers didn’t conceded a single over of more than 15 runs to stifle the Sunrisers during their futile chase.

For the third time in three matches, Kings XI’s Glenn Maxwell was Man of the Match and again was the decisive factor in his side’s victory. Twice Maxwell caught fortunate break when he should have been dismissed earlier in his innings by being reprieved by a drop of a would be sure catch and a ruled no ball on a catch. In turn the lucky Aussie pillaged Hyderabad for 95 runs on 43 balls for a strike rate of 220.93. With SAP Lumira we can plot ball by ball Maxwell’s electrifying innings with an area chart. Note the 14 boundaries Maxwell struck, including nine maximums and spree of three successive sixes in the 13th over.

With SAP Lumira we can dive even further into Maxwell’s spectacular innings by examining a radar chart of how exactly he batted when scoring runs. Front footed sweep shoots off the middle of the bat notched Maxwell 18 runs and front footed top edge sweep shots scored 13 runs. Thus making the sweep Maxwell’s most effective shot type in the match.
