Full commentary

Thats a pretty comprehensive win for the Hyderabad Heroes, who win their third game. That means they move up to No. 3 in the ICL points table. "A good win," says Maher to the attractive Mayanti Langer down on the boundary. "We haven't played here at night so it may be difficult. We're not doing too bad but in this form of the game you're only as good as your next one."

For his 1 for 39 and 66 from 61, the Man of the Match here is Abdur Razzaq.

Thats it for this game, folks, but do come back and join us for game two of this Sunday double header at 7.30pm local (14:00 GMT). Until then, this is your commentator, Jamie Alter, signing off. See you soon!

Rajesh Sharma to Rayudu, no run

flat and fast on leg stump, turned to midwicket

So the scores are level at 141 for 1. No fifty for Maher, however. Sharma is back into the attack.

Ablish to Rayudu, no run

tighter delivery, middle and leg, and Rayudu defends it back

Ablish to Rayudu, FOUR runs

and this one too, for four! On the pads and clipped over square leg

17.2

Ablish to Rayudu, SIX runs

wow, lovely use of the wrists from Rayudu! This one's too straight and he effortlessly - and I mean effortlessly - picks it up off the pads and bisects fine leg and deep square leg for six

17.1
1
Ablish to Maher, 1 run

comes forward, rolls the wrists, and drives down to long-on

Maher on 47. Hyderabad need 13 from a full three overs. A cakewalk.

Uniyal to Rayudu, FOUR runs

oh ho ho, Rayudu gets a streaky four first ball, reaching out and square-driving in the air wide of Vincent at point

A good innings though. Its really set Hyderabad up for victory. Entertaining stuff. Here's Rayudu.

16.1
Uniyal to Abdul Razzaq, no run

swings at one angled across the stumps, fails to get bat on it and Singh takes it very well and stumps Razzaq, but replays show his foot was safely inside
