That's it from us on this game. The toss for the second game of the double-header between Hyderabad and Faisalabad is just a few minutes away. See you then!
McCullum: 'A big thank you to Tendo for his commitment. He played really well. The running between the wickets was just crazy from Tendo. It is very good to well here coming from New Zealand. Hopefully we will do well in the coming games.'
Thirimanne: 'I though we were 10-15 runs short. But the bowlers gave a good fight and unfortunately we couldn't defend this. The bowlers need to consistent on these type of surfaces. We didn't expect the assault from Tendo. he batted really well.'
Ryan ten Doeschate is the Man of the Match
Brendon McCullum will be really happy his side's performance. The bowlers did well initially to keep Kandurata to a moderate total despite Tharanga's heroics. Otago were jolted early with a few wickets early in the innings but Ryan ten Doeschate batted extremely well and powered his side to another comprehensive win. He was well supported by Neesham who also made a very valuable contribution.
