Coming back to SRH vs RCB IPL match highlights, RCB got off to the worst imaginable start with Parthiv Patel departing in the first over itself. He was soon followed by captain Virat Kohli who tried to step and hit out to the crafty Rashid Khan, losing his wicket in the process. Heavily dependent on their skipper this season, seeing him make the long way back to the dugout sunk the heart of RCB supporters all over the world before AB de Villiers and Moeen Ali put together one of the best partnerships this season. Their incredible knock in the middle was the main reason the home side posted a score in excess of 200. Much to our surprise, Ali teed off to leave de Villiers on the spectating end for once in his life. His 65 off 34 along with AB’s 69 off 39 was perfectly rounded off by Grandhomme’s 40 to take the home side to 218-6.

SRH came out to chase with intent and vigour. And they almost did it, falling just millimeters short of their target. Before we get to the chase we have to pay our tributes to Williamson who for us has been by far the best batsmen this tournament. The run machine almost took his side to glory with his 81 which was one to behold. Manish Pandey’s heroics were something else too but unfortunately not enough for him and his team as RCB held their nerves in the dying stages of the match to win by 14 runs.
