Mohali: Otago Volts served notice to the big boys in Group A of the Champions League Twenty20 2013, rounding off their qualifying campaign in some style with a commanding victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the top-of-the-table clash. (All the highlights from the match)
The outcome of this match will have little bearing on what unfurls in the next fortnight, but despite resting Ian Butler and James McMillan, their two strike bowlers, Otago still packed far too much punch for Hyderabad, outclassed in every department at PCA Stadium in Mohali on Friday (September 20) night.

It was a thoroughly impressive performance from Brendon McCullum's side, who first strangled Hyderabad with clinical precision with the ball, and then went about chasing a middling target with great intensity and purpose, completing a five-wicket victory without so much as breaking sweat.
