Sunrisers Hyderabad have moved to the top of the Indian Premier League table with a five-wicket victory at home to Kings XI Punjab.

The visitors won the toss and put themselves into bat before they made 123-9 from their full 20 overs.

In response, the Sunrisers reached their target for the loss of five wickets and with seven balls remaining.

Kings XI laboured to their eventual total as Adam Gilchrist (26), David Hussey (22) and Piyush Chawla (23) were among only five players to make it into double figures.

Hanuma Vihari's 46 and an unbeaten 23 from Thisara Perera did most of the damage for Hyderabad at the crease, while Akshath Reddy (19) and Cameron White (16) also helped them go back to the top of the standings.
