RCB vs SRH: RCB were bowled out for 68 runs by SRH at the Brabourne stadium, exactly five years after they were bowled out for 49 against KKR at the Eden Gardens in the IPL 2017. The poor batting performance came against a resurgent SRH team, which has now won five games in a row, with the bowlers once again leading the way. The stunning nine-wicket victory provided SRH’s NRR a huge boost, propelling them to second place on the points table from fifth.
On the Brabourne surface, there was a lot of bounce and some swing in the air, and Jansen took advantage of it right away. To capture three wickets in a single over, he cleaned up Faf du Plessis, gave Virat Kohli his second successive first-ball duck, and induced an outside edge from left-handed Anuj Rawat with an outswinger.
The wicket of Glenn Maxwell, which was more due to Kane Williamson’s diving catch at mid-off, which had to be referred to the TV umpire before the Australian allrounder was sent on his way, took the wind out of RCB’s sails. RCB was reduced to 31 for 4 in six overs as a result of this.
RCB vs SRH: The day Dinesh Karthik went unproductive
RCB’s attempt to calm the situation lasted only until the 9th over, when Jagadeesha Suchith claimed two wickets in the space of four deliveries, sending RCB on their path to yet another humiliating batting defeat. Suyash Prabhudessai, who was playing from outside the crease, was the first to go. Nicholas Pooran was quick to knock the bails down and leave RCB five down after he went for an explosive swing and missed. Karthik was in and out in three balls, as his effort to hit a sweep on a leg side ball was intercepted by Pooran with a sharp catch down the leg side.
RCB were seven down at the midway point as Umran Malik took a piece of the action with the wicket of Shahbaz Ahmed, who was also caught behind down the leg side. T Natarajan then saw the back of Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga, before Bhuvneshwar Kumar joined in with Mohammed Siraj’s dismissal in the 17th over to reach a conclusion to RCB’s innings on 68, their seventh below 100 total in the IPL.

RCB vs SRH : SRH’s two-point victory and a jump on the table
Abhishek Sharma and Kane Williamson calmly snuffed out RCB’s early efforts at breakouts, playing the fields precisely and racking up fast runs without breaking a sweat. Abhishek began the early onslaught with a six and a four off Siraj’s over in the third over and then followed it up with a six and a four from Josh Hazlewood, hitting everything short and back of a length for safe boundaries all over the park. SRH concluded the PowerPlay on 56 for 0 after Hazlewood’s second over, delivered three boundaries, two of them off Abhishek’s bat.
When Harshal Patel dismissed Abhishek for a 28-ball 47 in the eighth over, he denied Abhishek a fifty, but the job was far from done for SRH. They quickly finished their comprehensive victory by nine wickets, which greatly improved their NRR and their position on the points table.
