SRH vs RCB: Williamson’s feat, Virat Kohli’s title dream in Hyderabad qualifiers

Abu Dhabi
Jason Holder’s all-round game and Kane Williamson’s innings helped Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by six wickets in a low-scoring thriller here on Friday to qualify for the Indian Premier League (IPL) qualifiers. The Sunrisers will face the Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier on Sunday, losing to Mumbai Indians by 57 runs in the first qualifier.

The Sunrisers started off chasing a target of 132 runs too. He missed the top order of Wriddhiman Saha who could not play due to injury. Srivats Goswami, who replaced him, did good wicketkeeping but could not open the account at bat. Manish Pandey (24) hit Siraj for six but this fast bowler managed to take the second opener David Warner (17) wicket in Powerplay. The third umpire gave the verdict against Warner through a review.

Initially the effect of dew was less visible and the spinners tightened the screws as soon as they arrived. After the powerplay, only 24 runs were scored in seven overs. Meanwhile the ball did not reach the boundary while two wickets fell. Jampa got Pandey caught behind the wicket while Chahal walked Priyam Garg (seven off 14 balls). Williamson increased the run pace by hitting Sundar and Chahal for sixes. The Sunrisers needed nine runs in the final over. In such a situation, the holder hit the boundaries of Navdeep Saini’s consecutive balls to reach the team goal.

Earlier, the Sunrisers bowlers vindicated Warner’s decision to field first by winning the toss with a tight screw. Apart from Holder and Natarajan, both his spinners Rashid Khan (four overs 22 runs) and Shahbaz Nadeem (one wicket for 30 runs) and fast bowler Sandeep Sharma (four overs 21 runs) also bowled tightly. Apart from de Villiers, RC Finch (32 runs off 30 balls, three fours, one six) could contribute something and his team could reach 131 runs for seven wickets.
