Praises Jaydev Unadkat for his performance and says that he deserved the hat-trick. Adds that the key was to use the longer side of the ground which they did it really well. Hopes to finish in top two.

!

Hyderabad skipper, David Warner says he isn't too sure what went wrong. Mentions that he is disappointed with the batting order. Stresses the importance of how somebody should go on till the end to try and win these kind of games. Admits they made some errors in judgement towards the end and that's cost them the game. States they're all accountable for their loss, no single person is responsible for it. Credits Jaydev Unadkat for his amazing bowling performance and is annoyed with the kind of wicket they played on today, which was similar to the one when they played against Punjab. Ends by thanking the crowd for their amazing support.

Thirteen runs were needed off the last over but Jaydev Unadkat didn't even give a single run and picked up a hat-trick as well. He finished with the figures of 4-1-30-5! He was well-supported by Ben Stokes, who had another great outing with the ball, picking up a 3-fer. Imran Tahir was the other bowler with a wicket to his name. Overall it was a great team performance from them, which led to this victory.

!

Pune held their nerve to breach the Hyderabad fortress. After putting to bat first, cameos from Stokes and Dhoni took their team to a decent total. Dhawan and Warner started the chase positively, especially the former. But, after the Indian opener departed, the skipper carried on and along with Yuvraj Singh stitched a 54-run stand. Once he departed, runs started drying up but the Indian veteran still held one end before he holed out.

Jaydev Unadkat to Siddarth Kaul

A triple-wicket maiden for Jaydev Unadkat. If there was an ideal last over to bowl in an innings, then this is it. Simply outstanding. He serves it on a back of a length outside off, Siddarth Kaul taps it to extra cover and wants the run. There's a slight mix-up and in the end, no run is taken. PUNE WIN BY 12 RUNS!

Jaydev Unadkat to Siddarth Kaul

Slower length delivery coming in on middle and off, Siddarth Kaul backs away a bit and attempts to push it away on the off side. Misses and the ball goes over the stumps.

Ashish Nehra is the last man in.

Jaydev Unadkat to Bhuvneshwar Kumar

OUT! HAT-TRICK FOR JAYDEV UNADKAT! This is a stupendous over from the left-arm pacer. Wow. He has a 5-wicket haul too and with that, he completes 100 Indian T20 League wickets too. Superb. Back of a length delivery around off, Bhuvneshwar Kumar looks to hit it away but gets it off the splice. Lobs into the hands of Manoj Tiwary at extra cover who runs in a few paces to take it.

!

Siddarth Kaul is the new man in. Jaydev Unadkat is on a hat-trick. Will he take it?

Jaydev Unadkat to Rashid Khan

OUT! Another one bites the dust! From around the wicket, it's hurled outside off, on a length, Rashid Khan swings at it hard and gets a huge top edge. It skies straight up, Unadkat moves to his right, settles himself under the ball and takes it himself. He's on a hat-trick here now.

!

Bhuvneshwar Kumar walks out to bat. But it's Rashid Khan who will be on strike.

Jaydev Unadkat to Bipul Sharma

OUT! BIPUL SHARMA IS GONE! Unadkat has his third, it's Stokes again with another catch. Length delivery angling in on the stumps, Bipul slogs over square leg. A lot of height on it, but not enough distance. It's right down the Englishman's throat who takes it in his safe hands. The hosts now need 13 off the final 4 balls.

Jaydev Unadkat to Bipul Sharma

Dot ball to get things going, big swing and a miss from Bipul. He closes his eyes, probably prays to god that he connects as he swings wildly across the line. To no avail though.

!

Jaydev Unadkat to bowl the final over. This is going down to the wire, 13 runs needed to win for Hyderabad. Bipul Sharma will have the strike. Can he finish it off?

Ben Stokes to Rashid Khan

Change of pace from Ben Stokes, Rashid Khan mistimes the pull aerially through mid-wicket. Runs hard and gets two. That's good running.
