5 April 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Sharma to Perera, FOUR, quicker and full outside off, the batsman drives it through extra cover, gets a lot of power behind that one and a pedestrian effort by Bhuvi at the boundary gives Perera a four


Sharma to Perera, FOUR, now he clubs it past the bowler, all along the ground and it was powerful indeed, the fielder at long-on had no chance


Sharma to Perera, no run, tossed up, it was in Perera's zone and he goes for a massive swing, but gets an inside edge on to his pads


Sharma to Perera, 1 run, shorter delivery on off stump, again he looks to flog it over midwicket and gets an inside edge towards square leg

Sunrisers Hyderabad 82/3   NLTC Perera 9* (4b 2x4)

Samuels to Perera, 1 run, quicker delivery, he tries to whack it hard but his hand comes off the handle, ends up pushing it to long-on

Sunrisers Hyderabad 85/4   NLTC Perera 10* (5b 2x4)

Kumar to Perera, no run, skiddy length delivery angled across the left-hander, he goes for a front-foot pull but gets beaten


Kumar to Perera, 1 run, bowls a good yorker on the middle stump, the batsman belatedly brings his bat down and jabs it towards square leg


Kumar to Perera, 2 runs, another yorker, this time on leg stump, Perera brings his heavy bat down and blocks it to deep midwicket for a quick couple


Kumar to Perera, 1 run, attempts another yorker, but it's a low full-toss outside off, the batsman ends up slicing it to point

Sunrisers Hyderabad 92/4   NLTC Perera 14* (9b 2x4)

Samuels to Perera, no run, quicker and fuller wide outside off, the batsman stays rooted to the crease and misses his drive


Samuels to Perera, FOUR, this time it is in his arc, he slogs it over midwicket and it goes flat to the cow-corner


Samuels to Perera, 2 runs, goes for another hoick, but gets a leading edge over the bowler's head, the lack of pace helps him to come back for a couple


Samuels to Perera, SIX, he is lighting it up, this one is a medium-pacer's length delivery on off, smoked over the long-on boundary, deep into the stands


Samuels to Perera, 2 runs, this time he goes for a drive to deep extra cover, Marsh runs around from long-off and makes a diving save


Samuels to Perera, 1 run, bowls a low full-toss, it is driven down to long-off for a single

Sunrisers Hyderabad 107/4   NLTC Perera 29* (15b 3x4 1x6)

Dinda to Perera, 1 run, bowls a good yorker outside off, the batsman jams his bat down and steers it to point, but the ball goes through the fielder. Perera off strike, smart move by Mitch Marsh at point


Dinda to Perera, no run, bowls a low full-toss wide outside off, the batsman swings and misses. He is a bit disappointed to miss out on that one


Dinda to Perera, OUT, caught at long-on! The low full-toss does the job. It is quick outside off, the batsman this time gets a bat on this but ends up hitting it high without any timing, the ball descends for long-on to take a simple catch

NLTC Perera c Pandey b Dinda 30 (23m 18b 3x4 1x6) SR: 166.66

Sunrisers Hyderabad 109/5   NLTC Perera 30 (18b 3x4 1x6)
