Pin It



Sunrisers Hyderabad, playing their first game in the IPL, put up a brave fight and successfully defended a small total, they posted on the board, to start off the 2013 season on a winning note. The home team, which posted 126 batting first, defeated Pune Warriors India by 22 runs thanks to Dale Steyn and Amit Mishra, who shared 6 wickets between them.

PWI, needing 127 runs to score their first points in the tournament, started circumspectly. Robin Uthappa (24) struck back to back boundaries before falling to Thisara Perera, giving the home team their first wicket. Perera struck again in his next over, removing Marlon Samuels (5) who edged it straight to Cameron White at first slip.

Earlier, PWI won the toss and opted to field. The Sunrisers openers were kept quiet by disciplined bowling, giving away just 21 runs in the first four overs before Ashok Dinda castled Parthiv Patel (19) bringing captain Kumar Sangakara (15) to the middle. Sangakkara and Akshath Reddy (27) got on with the task of laying a foundation, but just as Sangakara started to get going, Rahul Sharma pegged his middle stump, providing PWI their second breakthrough.
