Only four matches remain in the league stage of the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, apart from Mumbai Indians (MI) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), all the six participating teams are keeping their fingers crossed.
In the second of Saturday’s doubleheader, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by five wickets in Sharjah. After winning the toss and electing to field first, the SRH bowlers restricted Virat Kohli and Co to a paltry 120 in 20 overs.
In their run-chase, the Orange Army never went behind the 8-ball and kept chipping away at the target, which they achieved with as many as 35 balls to spare. For the time being, both RCB and SRH are in a must-win position going into their last league matches.
Here are the SRH Player Ratings for the RCB vs SRH match:
David Warner- 3/10
David Warner started his knock with a colossal six off Washington Sundar in the second over of SRH’s run-chase. To his dismay, in the very next ball, the southpaw perished to the same bowler.
Wriddhiman Saha- 8.5/10
Wriddhiman Saha played a knock of substance, scoring 39 runs off 32 balls with four fours and one six. In the last ball of the 11th over, he perished to Yuzvendra Chahal while trying to go for a big shot.
Manish Pandey- 7.5/10
Manish Pandey was in the mood to hammer the RCB bowling attack. The batsman scored 26 runs off 19 balls and his knock was laced with three fours and one six. He became Chahal’s second victim.
Kane Williamson- 1.5/10
Kane Williamson tried to bide his time in the middle, but he couldn’t get the measure of the conditions. He managed eight runs off 14 balls before Isuru Udana accounted for his wicket.
Abdul Samad- N/A
Jason Holder- 9.5/10
Jason Holder brought forth all his experience with both bat and ball. He got the wickets of Chris Morris and Isuru Udana. With the bat in hand, Holder smashed 26 off 10 with one four and three sixes.
Abhishek Sharma- 2/10
Abhishek Sharma didn’t get a chance to bowl and he failed with the bat as well. He came to bat when the Sunrisers were in a dominating position, but then he threw his wicket away to Isuru Udana.
Rashid Khan- 9/10
Rashid Khan bowled 13 dot balls in his spell of four overs, showing his class and calibre. He got hit for a couple of fours but gave away only 20 runs. Moreover, he got rid of opener Josh Philippe.
Shahbaz Nadeem- 7.5/10
Shahbaz Nadeem was the most expensive bowler for the Sunrisers, giving 35 runs at an economy rate of five. But he nipped out the dangerous AB de Villiers, who was looking ominous, scoring 24 runs.
Sandeep Sharma- 9.5/10
Sandeep Sharma nipped out Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal, who both have been in stupendous form. The early jolts pushed RCB back from which they couldn’t recover. Sandeep gave away 20 runs in his four overs.
T Natarajan- 9.5/10
T Natarajan gave away one four in his spell of four overs, but apart from that, he was a tough nut to track. In his four overs, the left-arm spinner conceded 11 runs and picked Washington Sundar’s wicket.
