Sunrises Hyderabad win a completely one-sided contest against Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2020. David Warner and his team brought their A-game in a decisive match for them and humbled RCB at Sharjah.
After their emphatic win, SRH keeps their dreams alive of advancing through to the IPL 2020 playoffs. RCB on the other hand only have themselves to blame as they are now in a must-win situation in their final league match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Win By 5 Wickets
It was a disastrous batting effort by RCB today as all their batsmen looked completely out of sorts. SRH continuously kept on picking wickets and they could only make a disappointing 120 runs after 20 overs.
The day belonged to the SRH bowlers who once again delivered in a do or die clash. Seamer Sandeep Sharma was outstanding up front and picked 3 wickets. Jason Holder and Rashid Khan too chipped in with the ball and made life difficult for the star-studded RCB batting.
We Can Still Win The IPL- David Warner
As expected the SRH came out to bat with purpose and sought at chasing down the target as swiftly as possible. Wriddiman Saha carried on his good form and along with Manish Pandey, SRH made short work of the chase. Eventually, Sunrisers wrapped up the match in the 15th over and made a statement against RCB.
Here’s what the winning captain David Warner said in the post-match presentation.
“Coming here, needing to win against top teams, needing to win all to qualify. It is big. Losing Vijay is a big miss. For us, we worked out how to go about it. The right balance, right partnerships. All the credit today goes to the bowlers. The kind of wicket it is, it is slowing up quite a bit. The bowlers have to adapt. Can’t just be yorkers, can’t just be slowers. You have to hit the wicket. I was not surprised at all with the dew. When it is cooler here, it gets quite dewy”.
“Jason is a very very good cricket ball. Someone of his height, if you are trying to bowl a bouncer to him, you have to dig it in quite short. And it will sit up for him in these pitches. Same do-or-die in the next game. Yeah, we can still win the IPL. We had to win all three in 2016. We are winning these close ones. Of course, we lost that close one the other night; don’t even remind me of it”, said David Warner
