    Report: Match 3 - SRH vs PWI

    Sunrisers pull off fighting victory

    Mumbai 06 April 2013
    Sunrisers Hyderabad, playing their first game in the IPL, put up a brave fight and successfully defended a small total, they posted on the board, to start off the 2013 season on a winning note. The home team, which posted 126 batting first, defeated Pune Warriors India by 22 runs thanks to Dale Steyn and Amit Mishra, who shared 6 wickets between them. 

    PWI, needing 127 runs to score their first points in the tournament, started circumspectly. Robin Uthappa (24) struck back to back boundaries before falling to Thisara Perera, giving the home team their first wicket. Perera struck again in his next over, removing Marlon Samuels (5) who edged it straight to Cameron White at first slip.

    Mishra then dismissed Yuvraj Singh (2) stumped down the leg side when PWI required 79 runs to win in 10.1 overs. Mishra then had Manish Pandey (15) playing a wild slog to further mount the pressure.

    Urgency from Ross Taylor (19) and Abhishek Nayar (19) helped PWI rebuild but Mishra struck again sending back Nayar to bag his third. PWI were given a double blow as Taylor and Mitchell Marsh (7) fell in quick succession. Steyn then wrapped it all up with three wickets in four balls as PWI fell 22 runs short.

    Earlier, PWI won the toss and opted to field. The Sunrisers openers were kept quiet by disciplined bowling, giving away just 21 runs in the first four overs before Ashok Dinda castled Parthiv Patel (19) bringing captain Kumar Sangakara (15) to the middle. Sangakkara and Akshath Reddy (27) got on with the task of laying a foundation, but just as Sangakara started to get going, Rahul Sharma pegged his middle stump, providing PWI their second breakthrough.

    PWI spinners strangled the Sunrisers’ run flow and the home side struggled to find any sort of momentum. Yuvraj Singh then got rid of Reddy to further sink the home team. Perera (30) tried to add new life into the Sunrisers' innings with two gorgeous drives off Sharma, but wickets continued to fall as Samuels got Cameron White (10) caught on the fence. Perera showed his hard hitting abilities taking 14 of Samuel's 17th over before he too fell to become Dinda's second scalp. Sunrisers eventually finished at 126 for 6 from their 20 overs.

    Man-of-the-Match: Amit Mishra

    Brief Scores:
    Sunrisers Hyderabad 126-6 in 20.0 Overs (Thisara Perera 30, Ashok Dinda 2-29) beat Pune Warriors India 104 in 18.5 Overs (Robin Uthappa 24, Dale Steyn 3-11, Amit Mishra 3-19).
