Hyderabad: Apr 5, 2013

Pune Warriors India bowled extremely well to keep Sunrisers Hyderabad to 126 for six in their 20 overs in the third match of the Pepsi IPL 6 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

It is a below-par total on this pitch and Pune would feel very confident in chasing this down. All of the Pune Warriors bowled a tight line and contained the run flow very well. Ashok Dinda picked up two wickets to become the pick of the bowlers.

Hyderabad’s bowling spearheaded Dale Steyn seems like the only man who could stand in the way of Pune and an easy win.

The Sunrisers got off to a slow start, in Twenty20 standards, reaching 32 for no loss in five overs. The Pune Warriors threw up a surprise earlier on, opening the bowling with Marlon Samuels. Bhuvneshwar Kumar shared the new ball with the West Indian and the duo contained the run flow in the first five overs.

Pune captain Angelo Mathews brought on Dinda as the first bowling change in the sixth over and the Indian immediately produced results. Dinda bowled Parthiv Patel (19) with a beauty of a ball that pitched full up and swung into the left-hander. Patel went to drive, missed and the ball smashed into the stumps.

Sunrisers captain Kumar Sangakkara walked in at No 3 as the home team continued to go along at a rate hovering around the six and over mark. Rahul Sharma, bowling the 10th over, then bowled Sangakkara  for 15 as the Sunrisers reached the halfway stage at 60 for two.

Yuvraj Singh then snared up opener Akshath Reddy (23) to make it 72 for three in 12. Samuels then picked up Cameron White, who failed to clear a slog sweep, giving a straight forward catch to Mitchell Marsh at deep square leg.  At 83 for four, Hanuma Vihari joined Perera with just five overs to go.

Thisara Perera lived up to his big-hitting image and hit Samuels for 15 runs, including a four and a six, in the 17th over to get the Sunrisers past the 100-mark. Dinda came in to bowl the 18th and snapped up Perera for a well-made 30 off 18 balls, after the Sri Lankan skied to Manish Pandey at long-off.

Hanuma Vihari was next to go as he tried to be cheeky and guide Bhuvneshwar over fine-leg with a lift outside off-stump. However, he could only find the safe hands of Dinda.

In the end, the Sunrisers managed just 126 runs — the lowest total at Hyderabad in the IPL. Dinda finished with figures of two for 29, setting a modest total of 127 for Pune Warriors.

Brief Scores: Sunrisers Hyderabad 126 for 6 in 20 overs (Thisara Perera 30; Ashok Dinda 2 for 29, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 1 for 17) vs Pune Warriors.
