IPL 6 Live: Sunrisers Hyderabad shine against Pune Warriors blunt show
Hyderabad: With the change in the name of the franchise, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH) ended their streak of poor performance in Indian Premier League seasons and opened their IPL 6 account with a comprehensive win over Sahara Pune Warriors (SPW). After being wrapped up at 126, Hyderabad bowlers displayed some superb bowling performances to conquer a 22-run victory here at the third match of the season at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

Earlier in Pune's innings, opener batsmen Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey started their innings sensibly and didn't look in a hurry to finish the match. They played deadly speedster Dale Steyn with full attention and tried to pass through his overs without losing any wickets. After Steyn's 2 overs, Uthappa decided to cut loose to hit some boundaries before getting out on 24 off 22 balls with 2 fours and one superb six. Marlon Samuels also followed him to the pavillion and was gone after scoring 5 runs off 9 balls.

Thisara Parera got both the breakthroughs for his team. Quickly Amit Mishra also spinned back Yuvraj Singh back to the pavillion. He was stumped by Parthiv Patel. None of the batsmen from Pune side were able to score quick runs as Hyderabad bowlers kept bowling in the right line and length. Besides superb bowling, Hyderabad players looked fully charged up on the ground and displayed some superb fielding performances.

Abhishek Nayar (19) and Ross Taylor (19) also failed to take their team through to the small total of 126 runs. Mitchell Marsh became the victim of a very unfortunate run out just after hitting a massive six straight down the ground. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rahul Sharma were clean bowled by Dale Steyn in two consecutive deliveries in the second last over of the match. However, Steyn missed the hat-trick chance but grabbed it on the very next ball. Angelo Mathews, the skipper, was left standing on the non-striker end waiting for his chance to deliver.

However, Hyderabad put on a great performance before their home crowd and grabbed victory by 22 runs. Steyn and Mishra bagged 3 wickets each and bowled out Pune in 18.5 overs.
