19:48 (IST): So that's it from Hyderabad. Up next is Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians in Cuttack, today at 8 pm IST.

 

19:47 (IST): Man of the match Wriddhiman Saha was modest in his responses.


"Me and Manan were thinking of scoring as much as possible in first six overs and keeping the momentum going. He (Vohra) is outstanding, timing the ball properly. Good pitch, 400 runs in 40 overs," said Saha.

 

19:43 (IST): George Bailey is a happy man with his boys, but he admits his bad mood after conceding 200 plus.

"I walked off at the half way point angry at our bowlers. Saha and Manan were outstanding. Really pleasing thing was they hit really good cricket shots, it gave the rest of the guys the confidence. It just skids on a little bit, it did feel like it was coming on quite nicely (batting second), but it felt like it was coming on nicely all day. We are not relying overly on Maxwell and Miller. Other guys are contributing, which is important," he said.

 

19:31 (IST): And it's all over! Bailey seals it with a six and Punjab finish with 8 balls to spare. Punjab go to top of table.

 

 

19:28 (IST): 22 runs off Steyn's last over and Punjab in control. Punjab 202/4 in 18 overs, Target: 206.

18:46 (IST): Nothing going right for Hyderabad. Mishra's no-ball gives Maxwell a life and then Miller is dropped by Lokesh in the deep, though it was a free hit. Punjab 135/3 in 10.2 overs, Target: 206.

 

18:39 (IST): WICKET! Vohra is out for 47 backing up too far as Maxwell's straight drive is deflected on to the stumps by Bhuvneshwar. Punjab 125/3 in 9.1 overs.
