Bangalore have done well to restrict Hyderabad to 132. Zaheer Khan and Vinay Kumar provided them with early breakthroughs and at 51/4, Hyderabad were totally struggling. But JP Duminy came to their rescue with a sublime 74 off 53 balls as he added 71 runs for the 5th wicket with Parthiv Patel to power the hosts to a respectable score. It should be an easy chase for Bangalore. Join us in a while for their reply.

19.6 V Kumar to A Reddy, OUT! Two in two for Kumar! A terrific yorker to finish off! Delivers it into the blockhole, Reddy misses his heave and the ball sneaks through and rattles the timber. Hyderabad have posted 132/7 on the board! 132/7

19.1 V Kumar to A Reddy, Bunts it to deep mid-wicket where Tiwary slips and misfields to allow a couple. 128/5

The players have made their way out to the middle. Shikhar Dhawan and Akshath Reddy are the two batsmen at the crease. Zaheer Khan will start off proceedings for Bangalore.

Toss - Bangalore have won the toss and elected to field. They have an unchanged side. Just a single change for Hyderabad as skipper Kumar Sangakkara returns to the side in place of Chris Lynn.

It's a do or die match for Bangalore, a win here will take them to the play-offs and a loss would mean they are knocked out of the competition. Having thumped Delhi in the previous match, their confidence will be sky high and they would be looking to continue the same momentum going into the match. Hyderabad, on the other hand, have already been knocked out of the tournament and would be looking to play for pride. Having spoilt Jaipur's party in their previous match, they would again be looking to play party poopers. A win here will propel them above Pune to the 8th position. A cracker of a contest is definitely on cards.
