Dubai: Shikhar Dhawan had the luxury of having very impressive bowlers to fall back upon in crucial junctures and the Sunrisers' Hyderabad skipper is delighted that they did not let him down in the match against Mumbai Indians, here on Wednesday. (Match report)

Dale Steyn and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar bowled outstandingly throughout, specially the 18th and 19th overs in the Mumbai's chase to put a brake on the runs when Kieron Pollard was going hammer and tongs. Then Irfan Pathan bowled Pollard in the first ball of the 20th over to script the 15-run win. (Highlights)

"It was really tight. Bowlers bowled really well under pressure, especially Irfan and Bhuvi. I thought of Irfan bowling the last over and getting the main bowlers to pick up the wickets. We are getting into the groove now. The pitches here in the UAE have been very nice," Dhawan said after the match, which was his team's last in the UAE-leg. (Scorecard)
