Bhuvneshwar Kumar-led Hyderabad defeated Virat Kohli-led Bangalore in a one-sided contest at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium on Sunday. 

Opting to bowl, Bangalore bowlers conceded too many runs as Hyderabad posted a mammoth 232-run target. 

Chasing the same, Kohli's side was bundled out after scoring 113 runs in the 19th over as the Orange Army registered a 118-run win. 

For Hyderabad, both the openers Jonny Bairstow and David Warner were among runs as both of them completed centuries. 

Jonny Bairstow scored 114 runs off 56 balls to complete his maiden Indian Premier League century; his innings included 12 fours and seven sixes. 

For his sensational knock, he received Man of the Match award. 

While David Warner, who missed IPL's last edition due to his involvement in a ball-tampering scandal, made a strong come back this year. 

He scored an unbeaten 100 runs off 55 balls. 

In the bowling department, Mohammad Nabi proved to be economical as he took four wickets and gave 11 runs. His economy was 2.75. 

Sandeep Sharma also helped with his pace and seam as he took three important wickets.
