Amit Mishra picked up four wickets in one over to take Sunrisers Hyderabad to a sensational win over Pune Warriors in the Indian Premier League here Wednesday.

Mishra took all his scalps, including the hat-trick, in the 19th over of the Pune innings which ended at 108 -- 11 runs short of Hyderabad's 119 for eight. The leg-spinner also made 30 crucial runs after his side was tottering at 44 for six. 

The hosts needed 25 runs off 24 balls with six wickets in hand before Mitchell Marsh's dismissal triggered a dramatic batting collapse.  

Mishra removed opposition skipper Angelo Matthews (20), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Sharma and Ashok Dinda to propel the Hyderabad team to a memorable win. His first hat-trick in IPL came in 2008 and he repeated the feat in the 2011 edition. 

Hyderabad now have four wins out of their six matches, pushing them to second spot in the standings. Pune, who shocked Chennai Super Kings Monday night, are placed second from bottom with four losses in six games.

It seemed the match would get over before time when Pune raced to 38 for no loss in four overs.

Medium pacer Thisara Perera provided Hyderabad the breakthrough, removing the dangerous Aaron Finch (16) and Robin Uthappa (22) in successive balls.

Mathews and Steven Smith (17) hung around for a while and the target looked very much within reach. The match witnessed a massive turnaround following the fall of Marsh's wicket which made it 101 for five.

It was all Mishra thereafter. 

Earlier, Bhuvneshwar Kumar rattled the Hyderabad top order with high quality swing bowling with Ashok Dinda giving him good support.

Kumar bowled Parthiv Patel (12) through one that swung enough to hit the off-stump and then foxed Cameron White with an inswinger castling his stumps.

His third wicket was of Hanuma Vihari, who eded another moving ball to first slip.
Another couple of dismissals spelt huge trouble for the visitors, leaving them at 44 for six in the 11th over.

A gritty knock from Biplab Samantray (37) and a 40-run partnership between Mishra and Ashish Reddy (19 not out) took Hyderabad to a fighting total.
