Royal Challengers Bangalore registered their third consecutive win by defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad for the first time since 2016 in a high-scoring thriller to stay alive in the playoffs race. AB de Villiers and Moeen Ali slammed half-centuries were followed by a good finish from Colin de Grandhomme and Sarfaraz Khan to help RCB finish on 218/6. The SRH openers were back in the hut by 8th over for just 64 runs before a mammoth stand between Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey took the visiting side close to the target.

Here we look at all the stats and numbers that were recorded during the high-scoring thriller in Bangalore:

4Kane Williamson became the 4th player to score four consecutive fifty-plus scores in the IPL. Virender Sehwag in 2012 and Jos Buttler in 2018 hit five consecutive 50+ scores while Virat Kohli scored four in a row in the 2016 edition.


70 – Runs Basil Thampi conceded in his four overs. These are the most runs conceded by any player in an IPL match. He surpassed Ishant Sharma’s record of 66 runs conceded against CSK in 2013 also while playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Thampi’s 70 runs are also the most in a T20 game in India and the most conceded by an Indian. Sreenath Aravind conceded 69 runs while playing for RCB against South Australia in the 2011 CLT20 game.


135 – Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey’s 135-run partnership is the highest in an unsuccessful IPL chase. Robin Uthappa and Gautam Gambhir‘s 121-run opening stand for KKR against RR in the 2014 edition was the previous highest. Overall, Williamson-Pandey partnership is the 4th highest to be on the losing side in the IPL.


135 – The 135-run stand between Williamson and Pandey is the highest and only third 100+ stand for SRH in the IPL to be on the losing side. Williamson’s 123-run stand with Shikhar Dhawan for the 2nd wicket in the game against CSK is the previous highest in losing cause for SRH.


151Rashid Khan completed 150 wickets in the Twenty20 format during this game. He reached the milestone in 104 matches the 2nd quickest after Krishmar Santokie who completed in 94 matches. Saeed Ajmal also completed 150 T20 wickets in 104 matches.


422 – The 422 runs scored in this game are the most in an IPL game hosted by Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. The previous highest match aggregate at this venue was the RCB-RR game earlier this season which witnessed a total of 415 runs scored for the loss of ten wickets.


625 – Kane Williamson’s 625 runs in this IPL are the most by a New Zealand player in a T20 series/tournament. He is also the first player from New Zealand to score over 600 runs in a T20 series/tournament. Jesse Ryder scored 584 runs in the HRV Cup 2012/13 in just 12 innings while playing for Wellington.


1036 – Kane Williamson completed 1000 runs in the IPL in his 28th innings. He is the 5th fastest player to reach the 1000-run milestone in the IPL. Williamson is the 3rd player after David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan to score 1000 IPL runs for SRH.
