Commentary

Presentation:

Watson: "It was a slightly smaller score than we expected. But 134 was always going to be challenging against their bowling. The wicket played very nicely."

Rahane is the Man of the Match: "When three went down I wanted to bat as long as possible, we needed one big partnership. Me and Binny enjoy each other's company very well. I backed my instincts. Credit also goes to Sunrisers bowlers."

Looks like no separate interview with Dhawan at the presentation. He spoke immediately after the game, where he said that 150 was the par score.

That's it from us here. A high-scoring chase followed by a middle of the road one. It's on to Dubai tomorrow for the first time for two more double-headers. Thanks for your company tonight. Cheers!

End of match: No wild celebration from Faulkner. He's done this before hasn't he? Holds his nerve again in a chase. Credit though to Rahane and Binny or setting it up for Rajasthan. Always a good sign when the Indian players play bigger rolls.

Dhawan says on TV that Hyderabad should have at least made 150. Hyderabad showed good fight towards the end but they had too few to defend.

Surya: "Dhawan missed a point here. Bhuvi should have been bowled 19th and Steyn 20th. "

Kumar to Faulkner, FOUR runs, back to back fours to finish things off! Bhuvneshwar fails to get the yorker in yet again, this time it's a low full toss and the Australian makes room and places it down to the vacant deep point region

Kumar to Faulkner, FOUR runs, Faulkner doesn't need a sighter! This was too full and wide outside off, Faulkner made room and smashed it wide of cover, the sweeper can't cut it off

Fine leg is up, long-off and long-on are in place

Steyn to Binny, 1 run, that was a snorter from Steyn, quick one on the body and Binny swings and the ball hits his body and drops to the off side

Steyn to Binny, no run, Binny makes room and he makes too much of it, can't slap it away

Steyn to Binny, FOUR runs, Binny meanwhile relieves the pressure with a boundary, he makes room to a length ball and cuts him hard and fast past backward point, big gap there

Rajasthan are making it difficult for themselves with these wickets
