On the back of yet another fine batting display, the Sunrisers Hyderabad delivered another crucial win. Skipper David Warner led his side’s assault from the word go, as along with Shikhar Dhawan, he took his side off to a flying start. Chasing 180 to win, a strong start was needed, and that is what exactly happened as Warner and Dhawan were fantastic yet again.

 

Things though were finished off by the ever dynamic Yuvraj Singh with his belligerent cameo. Singh’s unbeaten knock of 42 off just 24 balls was filled with delightful strokes and his shots were timed to perfection. Youngster Deepak Hooda played a good hand as well in stabilizing the run chase as he kept the run flow ticking with his audacious stroke play.

 

Post his side’s win, skipper David Warner lauded the batting effort. “Was a bit worried after the bowling. I thought 160-65 was a par total. I do not think the wicket was bad, it was bit slow. It is very hard as a bowling unit to adapt to these conditions. And as a batsman, you have to hang in there. Credit to the way they batted. I had never played in a game where anyone had hit the stumps but now I have seen three,” said Warner.

 

Hashim Amla was named the Man of the Match for his breathtaking knock of 96 and he was generous in praising Yuvraj Singh for his cameo. “It is nice to get some runs on the board. It is a very disappointing loss but Yuvraj played a great knock. Took a bit of time to play shots like that. You got to play slightly differently, there is no doubt about that. You got to take a bit of risk early on but if they come off, they work for you,” said Amla.
