At a time when Duminy started opening up a bit, he unfortunately got run out. Vihari also gave his wicket to Narine in the 14th over of the innings, which was also a wicket maiden. Perera at the moment is looking dangerous and can turn the tables around for the Hyderabad team. He is dealing in boundaries. So far this Sri Lankan has scored three sixes and two fours in his 31-run knock. T&T need this man if they want to win this game. Hyderabad need 55 runs in 30 balls to seal the game.

Best bet for Sunrisers Hyderabad to chase the challenging total of 160 runs, skipper Dhawan is back in the pavilion. He gave an easy catch back to the bowler Stewart, who disguised Dhawan with a slower one. In the 7th over Hyderabad crossed the mark of 50 runs. JP Duminy and G Vihari are at the crease for Hyderabad.

Skipper Shikhar Dhawan started off well. He scored a boundary on the very first ball he played and that too in his trade mark style. In the next over he collected another boundary but this time on the on-side. Patel on the other end got dropped on the very first ball of the innings. But then he too scored a boundary followed by a six in the third over bowled by Rampaul. Trump card Sunil Narain was introduced into the attack and he was right on the money. First ball bowled by him shown the pavilion way to Parthiv Patel.

Sloppy fielding in last five overs allowed T&T to set the total of 161 in front of Sunrisers to win the match. Bravo remained the highest scorer for T&T who played the blistering knock of 66 in mere 44 balls. In the 19th over they crossed the mark of 150 runs. Though the last over bowled by Perera was an excellent one, in which he gave just seven runs. Now it’s time for the Sunrisers skipper Dhawan to continue his sublime form and play a match-winning knock to guide his team towards the victory.

Darren Bravo has played a cracker of an innings. He completed his half-century in just 37 balls, laced with three sixes and equal number of fours. In the 13th over he launched Mishra for two huge sixes. He started dealing in boundaries and Jason Mohammed was giving him a good company from the other end. In the 14th over T&T crossed the mark of 100 runs, but in the same over Sunrisers got the dangerous man. While looking for another boundary over extra cover he gave a simple catch to Dhawan off Sharma. In the next Mohammed also got out.

After playing a cameo of 22 runs in 14 balls, laced with four boundaries, E Lewis was caught by Patel off Sharma. Darren Bravo is playing a good knock and has scored 35 runs in 30 balls, thus far. Now it’s time for T&T to score some quick runs as they have wickets in hand.

In last three overs T&T scored 34 runs. In the third over of the innings T&T collected 14 runs from Steyn’s over. Then in the next two eight runs each.
Over 2 || Score 10/1
Dale Steyn was right on the money from the very first ball of the innings and sent back T&T opener Simmons for a duck. Steyn gave just 4 runs in the over. Ishant also bowled at a good line in the next and gave six runs.
LMP Simmons c Patel b Steyn 0 (1b)
It would be an interesting match. T&T would be high on spirit after winning their first match. Both the teams have good bowling attack. If Sunrisers have Dale Steyn and Ishant Sharma then T&T too have Rampaul and Sunil Narain. So it's an interesting match.
Toss: Dhawan won the toss and elected to bowl first.
