Captains of both teams were in terrible form
The captains of both teams in Bangalore and Hyderabad were in unmatched form. This season, Virat Kohli had scored the most 973 runs, including 4 centuries and 7 fifties. This is the record for the most runs and centuries scored in any one season. On the other hand, David Warner had scored 848 runs in 17 innings with the help of 9 half-centuries.
Hyderabad won the toss, chose batting
In the match, the toss was won by David Warner captained team Sunrisers Hyderabad and decided to bat first. This match was important for both, as they both had a chance to become champions for the first time.
Hyderabad's innings was like this, scored 208 runs
Sunrisers Hyderabad got the start by Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner. Warner hit 69 runs in 38 balls and Dhawan scored 28 runs in 25 balls. After this, Yuvraj Singh played 38 off 23 balls, Ben Cutting played an unbeaten 39 in 15 balls to bring the team score to 208 for 7 wickets. Looking at the final, this score was like a mountain.
Gayle and Virat give a good start to RCB
In reply, Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli gave an unmatched start by adding 114 runs in just 10.3 overs for the first wicket. I thought this match was going to be easy for him. Where Gayle smashed 76 runs in 38 balls with 8 sixes, then captain Virat Kohli scored 54 runs in 35 balls.
The match slipped in the last 5 overs.
By the time these two were in the field, RCB had a bat. But as soon as Virat bowled in the 13th over, bowled by Barinder Saran, the match slipped from RCB's hand. He had 158 for 3 overs till 15 overs, while 200 for 7 after 20 overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar's two overs were overshadowed by RCB in the final.
Hyderabad becomes champion
In this way, RCB became the IPL champion for the first time under the captaincy of David Warner, while Virat's team is still waiting for their title win.
