SRH’s Dhansu Boling
Earlier, effective bowlers led by Sandeep Sharma, Sunrisers Hyderabad stopped Royal Challengers Bangalore for 120 runs for 7 wickets. Sandeep took 20 wickets while Jason Holder took two wickets for 27 runs. Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem and T Natarajan took one wicket each. Natarajan conceded just 11 runs in his four-over spell. Apart from Bangalore opener Josh Philip (32), no batsman crossed the 30-run mark. AB de Villiers scored 24 runs.
Padikkal and Virat’s victims of Sandeep
Sunrisers captain David Warner won the toss and decided to bowl first which was proved by Sandeep. Sandeep bowled the in-form Devadatta Padikkal (05), after the opposing team captain Virat Kohli (07) was caught by Kane Williamson at short extra cover. This fast bowler has dismissed Kohli for the 7th time in the IPL. Bangalore’s team could score 30 runs for two wickets in the power play.
Opener Josh Philip, however, held one end. He also hit a four off left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem after Sandeep and Jason Holder. Bangalore’s team’s condition would have worsened but Nadeem had a four-run personal score on his own ball which put AB de Villiers’ catch. Phillip completed the half-century of the team’s runs in the ninth over with a four over Nadeem.
De Villiers could not even do wonders
De Villiers hit a six over Nadeem after getting his eyesight, but trying to repeat the same shot caught Abhishek Sharma at the boundary. He scored 24 runs in 24 balls with a four and a six. Phillip’s patience in the next over was also answered and he caught Manish Pandey at deep midwicket off Rashid. Phillip faced 31 balls with four boundaries. Bangalore batsmen struggled to play big shots throughout the innings.
The century of the team’s runs was completed in the 17th over. T Natarajan caught Washington Sundar (21) on his own ball in the next over while Holder sent Chris Morris (03) and Isuru Udana (00) to the pavilion. Gurkeerat Mann remained unbeaten after scoring 15 runs.
Hyderabad also has a poor start
Hyderabad started off chasing the target too. The first blow was given by Washington Sundar as his captain David Warner (8). Warner’s catch was caught by Udana. After this Manish Pandey and Wriddhiman Saha took the front and took the team across Fifty.
Important innings of Manish and Saha
This partnership seemed to be forming when Manish Pandey (26) was caught by Yuzvendra Chahal at the hands of Chris Morris and broke the partnership. Pandey hit 3 fours and a six in 19 balls. Shortly afterwards, Chahal made his second victim as Riddhiman Saha (39). Saha hit 4 fours and a six in 32 balls. This wicket fell on the team score of 82 runs.
Kane Williamson (8) gave the fourth blow to SRH, who was caught by captain Virat Kohli before the team took over. With Kane’s dismissal, the Bangalore team looked to be making a comeback with Zion Holder and Abhishek Sharma taking the front and taking the team closer to victory. However, Abhishek Sharma (8) was dismissed by Navdeep Saini on a team score of 114 runs, but he could not stop Zeshn Holder (26 not out, 10 balls, one four and 3 sixes) from winning.
