Saturday, 20 April 2013 - 8:12


A clinical Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Kings XI Punjab comfortably by five wickets to register their fifth win in the ongoing Pepsi India Premier League and move to the top of the points table.

By virtue of a disciplined bowling effort Sunrisers first restricted Kings XI to 123 for nine and then rode on Hanuma Vihari`s 46 and Thissara Perera`s quickfire 11-ball unbeaten 23-run knock to finish on 127 in 18.5 overs.

Sunrisers needed 18 off the last two overs, but big-hitting Perera made it look easy and smacked Mahmood for three huge sixes to chase down the target with seven balls to spare.
