Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Pune Warriors India Video Highlights of Indian Premier League 2013, 3rd T20 Match played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad on 5th April 2013.
Sunrisers Hyderabad made their Indian Premier League (IPL) debut on a winning note to beat Pune Warriors India by 22 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Friday.
Chasing 127 to win, the PW collapsed to 104 in 18.5 overs as Dale Steyn spewed fire to claim three wickets in his last over.
The visitors lost their last six wickets in 18 deliveries for 21 runs, to go down in the low-scoring match. Perera with his all-round performance (two wickets and 30 runs), Dale Steyn (3 for 11) and Amit Mishra (three for 19) played key role in Sunrisers’ win.
The visitors made a slow and cautious start before Robin Uthappa opened up in the sixth over to hoist Ishant Sharma for a six over long-off.
This was followed by two successive boundaries in the next over off Perera. The opener, however, fell in the same over as he tried to open the face of the bat and ended up giving a simple catch behind the wicket.
Perera, who top scored for Sunrisers, struck for the second time in his next over, having Samuels caught at first slip by Cameron White.
PWI were reduced to 42 for two in the ninth over. Yuvraj Singh had a very brief stay at the crease, lasting for just four deliveries. He was beaten to a beauty by Amit Mishra only to be stumped by Parthiv Patel. Pandey was the next to go caught by White off Mishra.
