Aiden Markram top-scored for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their seven-wicket win against the Punjab Kings on Sunday.
The Proteas batsman made 41* off 27 balls and finished the game off with a six as Hyderabad reached their target of 152 with seven balls remaining.
The Sunrisers were 77-3 in the 11th over but Markram and Nicholas Pooran (35*) stood firm.
Markram made 68* off 36 balls in the win against the Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday.
Kane Williamson’s Hyderabad have been unbeaten after their opening two losses and jumped to fourth in the 10-team IPL table led by the Gujarat Titans.
Umran Malik, a 22-year-old Kashmiri quick who has clocked speeds of over 150km/h in this edition of the T20 tournament, claimed three wickets in the final over that also witnessed a run-out to bowl out Punjab for 151.
Punjab batsman Liam Livingstone hammered 60 off 33 balls before falling to Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who claimed three wickets to reach 150 IPL scalps.
Malik (4-28) remained the hero after his dramatic last over of the Punjab innings when he took three wickets including two on successive balls to be on a hat-trick on the final delivery which resulted in a run-out.
He became the fourth bowler in IPL history after Irfan Pathan (India), Lasith Malinga (Sri Lanka) and Jaydev Unadkat (India) to not concede a single run in the 20th over.
It was also the first instance of four wickets falling in an over without any runs.
Livingstone remained the lone batting performer for Punjab as he put on 71 runs with Shahrukh Khan, who made 26, for the fifth wicket before Malik’s last over assault.
