beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 48 balls (6 overs). The target was only 69 runs. Abhishek Sharma’s stormy batting did not bother to win at all. Hyderabad won by 9 wickets and 72 balls.
Sunrisers captain Ken Williamson decided to bowl first after winning the toss on Saturday. After batting first, RCB got into such a batting disaster that it could not turn around. RCB lost one wicket after another from the beginning. It became clear once again that failure will not leave Virat Kohli behind easily.
Hyderabad lost to RCB with 72 balls in hand
The former RCB captain returned with zero runs in the first ball. And just why, no RCB batsman could stand at the crease that day. At one time it seemed that the lowest innings made by themselves did not break the record of 49 runs! However, Maxwell and the Lord fought a little and saved the giants from that shame. In the end RCB scored 6 runs. Which is the fifth lowest run in the history of IPL.
Marco Janssen took 3 wickets for 25 runs in 4 overs for Sunrisers in Hyderabad. Another fast bowler T Natrajan took 3 wickets with only 10 runs in 3 overs
Sunrisers did not have to get the speed to bat in response. They lost just one wicket and finished the match in 7 overs. Abhishek Sharma played an impeccable innings of 47 off 26 balls. Williamson made 16 runs. And Rahul Tripathi remained unbeaten on 7 runs.
