Points

Sunrisers Hyderabad 4, Faisalabad Wolves 0

Scorer: S Balasubramanian | Commentator: Vishal Dikshit

Sunrisers continue their strong form with their batting and bowling both. They kept Faisalabad to 127 as they relied on Misbah again, who top-scored with an unbeaten 56. Sunrisers were given another strong start by Parthiv Patel and Shikhar Dhawan and even though they were dismissed, Sunrisers cruised home with ease. With that Faisalabad are out of the CLT20 and Sunrisers Hyderabad and Otago Volts are through to the main stage. The remaining dead rubbers will be played on Friday, till then, it's Vishal Dikshit signing off. Goodbye!

Sam: "this is not fair, while all other domestic teams can have 4 foreign players, there are none in srilanka and pak team."

Sudheer: "Players like Misbah,Taranga must also ensure he takes 1's & 2's , see Tendo he got 26 runs in 24 balls with 1's & 2's apart from boundaries , same is not the case of Misbah.... In these matches 5-10 runs make huge difference"

Nabil: "Okay Here is a Thought ... Why Misbah do not Open or come One Down .. for the least in these T20 Matches .. more balls to play .. No ?"

Misbah-ul-Haq: It's good for me [to score runs] but not good for the team. At the moment, it's not helping. The experience of playing here is really good for the guys who haven't played international games. It's good to learn what's going on in international stages, it's a great opportunity for them. I think it's time for the guys to show something now, they have experience of two games now. We'll try to come good in the next game and go home with something positive.

Shikhar Dhawan: We both are in good form and playing smartly, that's the reason we are consistent. Steyn got back nicely and our spinners bowled beautifully, especially Mishra bowled very well. Our batmsen are also doing well. I knew I had to use Mishra better this time and he bowled very well.
