Kings XI Punjab overhauled a lofty Royals’ target of 191 runs in the 19th over to win by seven wickets with eight balls remaining on Sunday evening in Sharjah. With their second victory Punjab joined Bangalore at the top of the tournament table while the Royals fell back into the middle of the pack. After loading match data into SAP HANA we can visualize the action on the pitch by creating charts in SAP Lumira.


With a few simple clicks we can create a Manhattan bar chart in SAP Lumira that shows how many runs each club scored per over in the match. In nine overs Punjab scored more than 10 runs and finished with an impressive 10.33 runs per over for the match.

A trio of Punjab batsman mauled passed the massive total by scoring a combined 180 runs on 102 balls. Glenn Maxwell followed up his opening match score of 95 no out with another near century of 89 runs on 45 balls to cement himself as an early front runner for the tournament’s orange cap. With SAP Lumira we can chart the highest scoring member of the Punjab trio’s innings ball by ball. Note the eight fours and six sixes the Australian struck in his 45 balls.

The other two members Punjab’s terrific trio, Chesteshwar Pujara and David Miller, were both unbeaten. Miller was an instant force the moment he entered the crease as he scored 51 runs on only 19 balls for an incredible strike rate of 268.42.  Using SAP Lumira we can plot the unbeaten partnership’s innings. Miller struck four sixes in a span of five balls for an enormous 18th over and capped his innings off with a target topping six in the 19th over.
