SRH vs RCB: Match preview, head-to-head and Fantasy XI


The result: Sunrisers Hyderabad 10-146 (Williamson 56, Siraj 3-25) defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore 6-141 (Kohli 39, Shakib 2-36) by five runs. This is the tenth match for both the teams in this IPL season.

Mumbai had a poor start to the competition but have come back into contention with three wins from their last four.

New Zealand quick Tim Southee earlier removed three of Williamson's team-mates - including England opener Alex Hales and Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who scored 35 from 23 balls - and finished with figures of 3-30 as the Sunrisers were bowled out for 146 from their 20 overs.

Captain Kane Williamson was once again key with the bat before his bowlers thrived under the pressure of facing the likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. RCB's skipper moved to 39 before he got tangled up and a leading edge flew to short third-man where Pathan stuck one hand up and the ball miraculously stuck. With this win, SRH strengthen their position on top of the IPL 2018 points table, while RCB are nearly out of the tournament.

TOSS: Royal Challengers Bangalore have won the toss and have opted to field. Just when it looked like the partnership could lead the home team to a respectable total, Southee scalped Williamson to make it 112/4 after 16 overs. Bhuvneshwar and Sandeep Sharma have also made their presence felt with six wickets each.

After Shikhar Dhawan (13) and Manish Pandey (5) departed inside the first 10 overs, Williamson stitched a patient stand with Shakib Al Hasan.

Kane Williamson who has gone about amassing 410 runs nearly unnoticed is the "Batsman of the Match" for his match winning 56 off just 39 deliveries. Bowlers have been successful in defending small targets easily. It is now or never for Virat Kohli and his boys; they need to find that combination and that complete performance to stay alive in the competition, the release added.

The Bangalore team in all probabilities will play the same lineup against SRH that played against CSK. Not good enough. We deserve to lose this game. It's all about restricting the team batting first, the teams chasing have always done well.

Second-placed Chennai Super Kings are also in great shape and only need one more win to secure their play-off place.
