Comprehensive performance from the Sunrisers Hyderabad. No other word to describe it. Thought it was a difficult pitch to bat on, and in all probability it wasn't the easiest. First Hyderabad bowled superbly to restrict the opposition to 129 and then the way Shikhar Dhawan batted, it barely looked like there was anything wrong with it. Mumbai remain on 12 points, while Hyderabad have also moved up to the same number from as many games.

------------------------

Abhigna M: "IPL speed guns working their magic again. Kulkarni bowling at 140.8kmph! India's search for a pacer should end here!"

Pridhvi: "The two princely states still have their citadels intact"

Ali: "Sad for Pollard... well if he's not in for the next match, it could provide a millon dollar chance for Maxwell."

Pukhraj: "Sunrisers doing the Borussia Dortmund way, they literally thrashed one of the giants today." Unlike Real Madrid, Mumbai Indians never made a late comeback into the game.

Venessa: "@Pukhraj MI never was and never is a Giant in IPL . Please dont compare them to RM."

Gautham: "The points table looks so interesting.. There are 3 slots for 4 teams RR, MI, SRH and RCB to fight for.. Run rate will play huge from now on.."

Presentation quotes:

Rohit Sharma: Didn't have enough runs on the board. 10-15 runs short. SRH bowlers did a good job, bowled great areas and they restricted us well. Always good to bat on this track and wanted to put pressure on the opposition. Need to come back stronger. Important game, but it's not the end of the road for us, got six games now.

Sangakkara: We planned and prepared well and then executed well, Ishant set us up well with his three-over spell. Shikhar was outstanding, the way he batted through and then Vihari's was an important knock. Crowds have been fantastic, winning at home was important and happy to be doing that.

Ishant Sharma gets the man of the match: I am happy with the way I am bowling throughout this season. Dropping a catch is a part and parcel of the game, I think I took it too easy there, but I knew I had a job to do with the ball in the hand.

That's it then from me for this game, but hop over to the other live coverage for the Delhi v Kolkata encounter.

Kulkarni to Vihari, OUT, and now he's gone! short of length and pulls it straight into the hands of short mid-wicket, gone, caught! not that it will make any different here but would have been good to see him through to the victory
