The veteran Sri Lankan was named man of the match for his splendid bowling.
Vaas dismissed Murali Vijay [ Images ] (3) and Suresh Raina [ Images ] (6) in his second over in the space of four balls and got rid of dangerous Matthew Hayden [ Images ] (17) with his third.
Vaas, who had also picked two scalps in Deccan Chargers’ opening match against the Kolkata Knight Riders [ Images ] on Friday, cleaned up Vijay to begin his charge.
Raina hit the second ball he faced for a massive six but Vaas had his revenge in the very next ball, inducing an edge off the left-hander’s blade.
Australia’s [ Images ] Hayden, winner of the Orange Cap last season, hit a six each of Rohit Sharma [ Images ] and RP Singh [ Images ] before Vaas returned to have him caught by RP at short fine.
