Commentary

That's it from me then, it's been a real pleasure bringing the live coverage to you and more vitally reading all your comments and feedback. Ciao and have a good time ahead!

Presentation

Gilchrist: Losing those wickets was the turning point, looked good to get to 140 then we lost four wickets for nothing. It's about getting the consistency, the bowlers are doing a good job but the batsmen keep letting them down.

White: We like the close games, don't we? 140 was always going to be tough chase as Adam said. Vihari's had a nice tournament so far which is a good thing about the IPL, allowing youngsters to perform. The bowlers are doing a good job, Mishy, Ishant, Dale, Karan. Takes a bit of skill to hit those sixes.

Vihari gets the man of the match award: Very happy with the performance, most importantly, the team won. I don't mind bowling just one over, important to bowl it well. For this wicket, the target was very suitable for, sad that I couldn't see it through.

**********

Till the 18th over, it looked even-stevens. Then came Perera and scored 18 off his own bat with three sixes punctuating that over. A very disappointing over from Mahmood who kept bowling length balls and Perera kept banishing 'em from his site, what a player!

That takes Hyderabad to 10 points which is two more than the next best in the table. Of course, they have played seven games but it only means that the pressure on the top-four teams from the previous couple of seasons has increase manifold thanks to Hyderabad and Rajasthan.

**********

Harsha: "Someone had said at the end of first match of HSR that we need to take screenshot since Hyd was on top of the table. I have been taking plenty of screenshots since, Hyd has always been in top 5. Top performance !" Their story reminds me of the Rajasthan one from 2008. Touch wood!

Aditya M: "The homeground jinx has been officially lifted off the Hyderabad team with this win. Three wins in a row."

Major Hammad: "Thisara Parera now top scorer and highest wicket taker for Sunrisers Hyderabad this season so for." Whatever happened to Mishra?

Azhar Mahmood to Perera, SIX runs, you got to be kidding me, what a way to end the game, third six in a row to make it five wins in seven games and catapult to the top of the points table!
18.4

Azhar Mahmood to Perera, SIX runs, gone again and that's one of the biggest sixes you would see on a track like this, it was on a length and it's been cracked over the mid-wicket region for a six! what a shot!
18.3
1
Azhar Mahmood to Ashish Reddy, 1 run, slower ball but very full, almost an attempted leg-spinner, driven down the ground for a single
18.2
1
Azhar Mahmood to Perera, 1 run, and again, was looking to explode over the bowler's head but this time he is almost beaten, over the bowler's head for a single
18.2
1w
Azhar Mahmood to Perera, 1 wide, bouncer from Mahmood and he was looking to duck, called a wide and Gilly is not happy! talking to the umpire too but he isn't going to change that!
18.1
6
Azhar Mahmood to Perera, SIX runs, gone for a six! fuller from him and Perera has opened his stance and knocked it over the long-on region for a six! that's a deal-clincher!

That four helps, the equation was getting to be very tough otherwise. 18 off 12 is a couple of blows away. Then again, it's a couple of wickets away too.
