Apart from the 45-run loss, matters went from bad to worse for the Sunrisers Hyderabad when they assessed the fitness of Ashish Nehra. A devastated David Warner said that Nehra had hurt his groin while bowling his third over and stated that he would miss the next couple of matches. The 36-year old Nehra made his comeback to the Indian squad for the World T20 where he was unbelievably impressive.

“Nehra has hurt his groin. He will be out for a couple of games,” said Warner after his side’s 45-run loss to RCB.

However, despite the uneasy pill to swallow, Warner remained optimistic about his side’s chances in the upcoming matches in the IPL.

“We have to look back and look at positives and turn it around. We have a good batting track at Hyderabad. We should not lose wickets in clumps,” added Warner.

Despite being over the moon with the win, Virat Kohli remained grounded. He went on to praise off-spinner Parvez Rasool for his emphatic performance. Rasool was instrumental in the win as his variations in speed and lengths. He also lauded AB de Villiers for his amazing whirlwind knock of 82.

“We lost the toss and did not get what we wanted to. It was a really good effort from the batsman and Parvez showed composure. It is never easy for the spinners to bowl in Bangalore. Parvez was the stand-out bowler for me today. Last year, I and AB had a good partnership in Mumbai. He hit balls as only he can. It was a pleasure playing with him. He took some pressure off me,” said Kohli.
