Sunrisers Hyderabad bowled out for 146

May 10 09:56 2018

The ball raced to the boundary as Virat Kohli had now scored 37 runs. Not good enough, not up to the mark.

After being asked to bat first, Sunrisers were bundled out for 146, but once again managed to defend a low total to pull off the victory.

“Yusuf’s wicket was lucky, but it was a good wicket at that stage because Stokes is a unsafe player”, he said.

Tim Southee (4-30-3) proved the decision of skipper Virat Kohli right when he bowled the unsafe Alex Hales (5) first up in the third over. Williamson batted at a run-a-ball pace until he had reached 31.

Moving onto the bowling section, RCB’s Tim Southee and Mohammed Siraj ended up with 3 wickets each with an economy of 7.50 and 6.25 respectively.

Shravya, a software professional who had bunked work to watch the match, said a cheat day is permitted once a year when RCB plays in Hyderabad.

Kohli rued letting the opposition get back into the game, time and again this season. We deserve to lose this game. Rashid has 13 wickets in the season so far, mostly of batsmen caught in the web between attack and defence.

“I think it was a varied surface”. Their batsmen put in good performances as well against Delhi, the only thing that was missing from their lineup. “Sunrisers have quite a few guys in the team – that has been the story of their season”, Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

RCB lost Parthiv Patel (20) after an initial blitz but looked to be settling down when Virat Kohli joined Manan Vohra. On the other hand, Bangalore team, which is headed by Virat Kohli, every match is now has been become a knockout. Yusuf Pathan, standing at point, jumped as high as he could and took a fantastic catch to send Kohli packing.

Colin de Grandhomme (33) looked like being their unlikely hero but he was bowled off the last ball to leave RCB five runs short. Since Hyderabad is also Siraj’s home, he invited the team to his Towli Chowk residence for dinner. They understand their team and that’s why they have been so successful. That’s been their story and this has been ours.

A target of a mere 147 could have been a cakewalk against most bowling line ups but given the credentials of the SRH bowlers, one always knew that something was in store.

Shakib Al Hasan is another key bowler here. Kane Williamson was declared as Player of the Match. Williamson steered his side’s innings and his partnership with Shakib and ensured that SRH were aiming at a total that would give his bowlers a chance.

This match is very crucial for RCB to make for the play-offs.
