IPL 2018, SRH vs RCB - Highlights: Bowlers Guide Hyderabad to Another Win

Lynette PayneMay 09, 2018

Electing to bat first, Hyderabad rode on excellent batting by Kane Williamson (63 off 43) and debutant Alex Hales (45 off 39) to post 151/7 in their 20 overs. SRH skipper Kane Williamson won the "Man of the Match" for his knock of 56 runs off 39 deliveries.

Royals Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli admitted that him communicating with bowlers in the death overs may lead to confusion, and so on Tuesday against Mumbai Indians (MI), he allowed bowlers to back their instincts and take responsibility for their decisions. Needing to win all of their remaining matches even before last night's defeat, RCB find themselves in IPL Purgatory, and even with wins in their remaining 4 games, will be dependent on other teams to see if they can make it to the playoffs.

Shakib and Rashid then dismissed Kohli and the dangerman AB de Villiers (5) off successive overs to leave RCB's chase in a mess.

A day before the high-voltage clash against table-toppers SRH, a few members of the RCB squad along with Kohli reached Mohammed Siraj's home to enjoy a delicious dinner. Siraj scalped three wickets each.

While spinners accounted for just one wicket, fast bowlers, including Umesh Yadav, took seven as Sunrisers were bowled out for 146. Colin de Grandhomme and Mandeep Singh could only watch as Bhuvi executed one flawless yorker after the other to secure victory. "We might not be our best today, but we still saw some signs of brilliance in both aspects, which made the difference and hence we managed to just sneak in across the line today", the 27-year-old said. He found an able ally in Shakib al Hasan, with whom he added 64 runs for the fourth wicket.

Sunrisers are the pacesetters after 10 matches of the 2018 edition, with their latest success moving them two points clear at the summit.

Hyderabad have been brilliant this season as they have recorded four successive wins.

Death bowling has been a cause for concern for RCB, but they can not afford to let it remain unchecked when it comes playing against the Sunrisers.

For Hyderabad, Shakib took 2 for 36, Rashid took 1 for 31, while the pacers took a wicket each.

De Grandhomme had give RCB a chance to get past the Sunrisers Hyderabad when he hit Rashid Khan for successive sixes in the 17th over.
