VIVO IPL 2016, SRH vs RPS, Highlights

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rising Pune Supergiants, IPL 2016 Match Highlights

A comprehensive performance from Pune as they break their 4-match losing streak in the 2016 Indian T20 League. Chasing a paltry target of 119, Pune lost the in-form Ajinkya Rahane in the first over for a duck. However, Steven Smith and Faf du Plessis ensured that there would be no miracles for the hosts as they added a fluent 80-run stand for the 2nd wicket to settle the issue in favor of the tourists. Both batsmen stuttered initially a bit but then waded into the Hyderabad bowling. Faf departed with 39 needed to win and MS Dhoni got out quickly after the Pune captain had promoted himself to number 4. As soon as he got out, the rains got heavier and the umpires decided to end it.

 David Warner -  (On it being a bad night for Hyderabad) Yea exactly. It wasn't up to our standards. This is not what we expect. A couple of half-trackers went to hand, a leg side strangle. We made their bowling look good. We lost too many wickets upfront and that never helps. (On whether his team is overdependent on him) No, that's being unfair. The boys tried hard but couldn't succeed. We lost wickets in clumps and that doesn't help. (On the fitness of Kane Williamson and Yuvraj Singh) They are close, really close. Ashish (Nehra) was fit for this game and these 2 guys are close to selection is what the selectors say. (On the crowd support) It's always great to have good support here.
 MS Dhoni -  (On the win) It's important to win games because if you talk about the first 5 games, we had only won one. It was an important win as the host team was playing some good cricket. (On winning a toss) Apart from the first toss, I had won all tosses. More than the tosses, it was the performances that was the problem. We hadn't thought about the rain. We thought about bowling because it is difficult to put a score on the board here on this pitch. While chasing, you know how much to get. I thought it was the length. (On the bowling) The bowlers all hit the right length and when Ashwin got the chance, he too did a very good job. It's important to get wickets early because if you don't in the first 6, the batsmen have the license to put away any bowler that comes their way. (On team's fielding and when told that he can play another 10 years with his current fitness) I wouldn't mind, another 5 would be fine but fielding is what we haven't been good at. But today, we did well and all the tough ones went to the best fielders. Overall, it was a good win as the batsmen batted well and the bowlers bowled well.
