A brilliant bowling performance from Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) saw them beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 12 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad on Saturday. Failing to capitalise on the flying start given by Shikhar Dhawan (19) and David Warner (40), SRH couldn't keep up with the required run-rate. Courtesy of disciplined Pune bowling, Hyderabad were not allowed to score runs at will. With wickets falling at regular intervals, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost their momentum. Yuvraj Singh scored the highest for Hyderabad, 47, while Jaydev Unadkat took his first IPL hat-trick in the last over of the game and finished with figures of five for 30. After this win, Pune are placed second on the table with 16 points. (SCORECARD)

15:28 IST: It's toss time!
15:22 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of the match between Sunrisers |Hyderabad and Rising Pune Supergiant in Hyderabad, India.
While Rahul Tripathi's brilliant 93 in their last match against Kolkata guided Pune to win at the Eden, he will be expected to come good on Saturday too.
Ben Stokes has also lived up to the billing of being the costliest buy when he smashed his maiden ton against Gujarat.
The Pune bowling, led by Jaydev Unadkat, has been disciplined and they need to perform on Saturday to be able to stop orange cap holder Warner.
Though Hyderabad hasn't performed well in away matches, they intend to take full advantage of playing at home with a strong batting line-up consisting of Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques and Kane Williamson.
With purple cap holder Bhuvneshwar Kumar and young Afghan find Rashid Khan leading the bowling attack, Pune better be wary.
