David Warner and Trent Boult lead Hyderabad to victory over struggling Punjab

Sunrisers Hyderabad

150-6 in 20 overs (David Warner 58; Moises Henriques 27; Axar Patel 2-25)


Kings XI Punjab

130-9 in 20 overs (Wriddhiman Saha 42, George Bailey 22; Trent Boult 3-19)

David Warner led the way for Sunrisers Hyderabad with the bat before Trent Boult did the damage with the ball to hand Kings XI Punjab a 20-run defeat in Mohali.

Hyderabad were put in to bat by the home side and it was a decision that backfired as Warner struck 58 runs off 41 balls to set a target of 151.

Punjab failed to gather any momentum as Boult picked up three wickets, including that of Wriddhiman Saha (42), as Hyderabad picked up the points.

Kings XI remain bottom of the league table having won two and lost five of their opening seven matches.

Hyderabad, meanwhile, remain in mid-table with three wins and four losses.

Why it pays to compare

A comparison of sending Dh20,000 from the UAE using two different routes at the same time - the first direct from a UAE bank to a bank in Germany, and the second from the same UAE bank via an online platform to Germany - found key differences in cost and speed. The transfers were both initiated on January 30.

Route 1: bank transfer

The UAE bank charged Dh152.25 for the Dh20,000 transfer. On top of that, their exchange rate margin added a difference of around Dh415, compared with the mid-market rate.

Total cost: Dh567.25 - around 2.9 per cent of the total amount

Total received: €4,670.30 

Route 2: online platform

The UAE bank’s charge for sending Dh20,000 to a UK dirham-denominated account was Dh2.10. The exchange rate margin cost was Dh60, plus a Dh12 fee.

Total cost: Dh74.10, around 0.4 per cent of the transaction

Total received: €4,756

The UAE bank transfer was far quicker – around two to three working days, while the online platform took around four to five days, but was considerably cheaper. In the online platform transfer, the funds were also exposed to currency risk during the period it took for them to arrive.
