Sun Risers Hyderabad won their second match on the trot defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in an exciting Super Over at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. The match went to the very last over and SRH, needing 2 of the last ball, tied the match to take it to the Super Over.
In the Super Over, SRH batting first, managed to score 20 runs as Cameron White thumped R Vinay Kumar for two sixes and then Dale Steyn came on for SRH and gave away only 15 runs despite Chris Gayle's six, that kept RCB in the hunt off the penultimate ball.
Earlier chasing 131, SRH started on a lucky note as Parthiv Patel was dropped early by Chris Gayle but he failed capitalise on it as Moises Henriques had Patel edge to the wicket-keeper. Henriques struck again in his next over sending back White (5).
Akshath Reddy (23) and Hanuma Vihari (44*) started to build a partnership before the former was bowled by Muttiah Muralitharan. Jaydev Unadkat struck twice to dismiss Kumar Sangakara (16) and Thisara Perera to get RCB back into the match. Vinay then ran out Amit Mishra, before Ashish Reddy (14) dismissed him for a six and a boundary in the 18th over.
Needing seven runs of the very last over, RCB's hero from the match against MI, Vinay dismissed Reddy of the first ball. Some frantic running from SRH got them down requiring 2 runs off the last ball. The batsmen ran the final ball through to the keeper to tie the match.
Earlier RCB won the toss and chose to bat. Vihari struck with his very first delivery having Gayle (1) edge to the wicket-keeper. Ishant Sharma then got into the act sneaking through Tillakaratne Dilshan's (5) defense, and shattering his stump. SRH bowlers strangled the flow of runs and at the halfway stage RCB had scored only 55 runs.
Virat Kohli (46) and Henriques got on with the task of rebuilding the innings putting on 43 runs before Ashish Reddy got rid of Kohli caught of his own bowling. Mayank Agarwal (7) was given a lifeline when Ishant Sharma dropped him at deep wicket but he failed to capitalise on it and fell to Dale Steyn the next over. Henriques (44) who had played aggressively fell in the search of quick runs and RCB eventually finished at 130 for 8 from their 20 overs.

Kings XI Punjab, playing their first match of the Pepsi IPL 2013 tournament, started off in grand style, routing Pune Warriors India by eight wickets at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune. KXIP managed to chase the small target of 100 runs after a wonderful effort by their bowlers restricted PWI to 99.
Chasing just 100 runs, Adam Gilchrist (15) got KXIP going with 14 runs of the very first over. He struck two boundaries and a six off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Angelo Matthews then had his counterpart, Gilchrist, caught at deep square leg. Ashok Dinda's second over was taken apart for 21 runs as IPL debutant, Manan Vohra (43*) hit him for four successive boundaries.
Vohra along with Mandeep Singh (31) put on 58 runs for the second wicket to set up the chase for KXIP. Mandeep was dropped on 22 by Dinda, but he couldn’t capitalise on it as Rahul Sharma dismantled the stumps behind him the next over. Vohra and David Hussey (8*) saw the team home with 46 balls remaining.
Earlier PWI won the toss and elected to bat. Praveen Kumar drew first blood bowling Manish Pandey for a duck. Yuvraj Singh who sat out due to a sore back was missed dearly. Under pressure from disciplined Punjab bowling, Tirumalasetti Suman (6) fell trying to break the shackles giving Azhar Mahmood his first wicket. Marlon Samuels (3) soon followed, run out courtesy of a brilliant throw by Mandeep Singh.
It only got worse as Robin Uthappa (19) had his stumps rearranged by Chawla and Parvinder Awana then had Angelo Matthews (4) caught behind leaving PWI in dire straight at 38 for 5 in 10 overs. Ross Taylor (15) joined the procession with Gurkeerat Singh pulling an absolute blinder of a catch in the deep. The collapse continued as Mitchell Marsh (15) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (8) departed in the pursuit of runs. Abhishek Nayar (25*) helped PWI salvage some runs to reach 99 for 9 from their 20 overs.
