Sunrisers Hyderabad boosted their hopes of making the Indian Premier League play-offs by securing a 30-run win over Kings XI Punjab.
Parthiv Patel hit 61 as the visitors made 150-7 after losing the toss and being put in to bat in Mohali, before Darren Sammy took four wickets as Kings XI's chase fell well short.
Patel compiled his total off 47 balls as the opener stood firm from the top of the innings until the end of the penultimate over.
He found support hard to come by as Sandeep Sharma (3-21) triggered a middle-order collapse, including two wickets in as many balls at the end of the eighth over.
But Karan Sharma (22) and Thisara Perera (32 not out) stepped up to keep the scoreboard ticking over as the Sunrisers set what proved to be a winning total.
The hosts' chase got off to a nightmare start as Mandeep Singh departed for a duck in the first over, but a 44-run second-wicket stand between Aussie duo Adam Gilchrist and Shaun Marsh kept their hopes alive.
Both were removed by Sammy, who also took the scalp of David Miller (6), while the efforts of Luke Pomersbach (33 not out) and Rajagopal Sathis (25) were not enough to avoid defeat.
