A fantastic batting performance by Hyderabad gave RCB a huge challenged as the SunRisers scored 207/4. They did lose skipper David Warner early but the 2nd wicket stand between Shikhar Dhawan and Moises Henriques set the innings up nicely. In the partnership, the latter was the aggressor as the innings gained momentum. However, the man who stole the show was Yuvraj Singh with a hurricane innings, smashing the bowlers left, right and centre en route to a 27-ball 62!
Yuzvendra Chahal was the only Bangalore bowler to do well and he deserves rich praise on a beautiful batting pitch. The others were mauled with skipper Shane Watson having a rare off day. The dropped catch of Yuvraj when he was on 26 will surely haunt the visitors. Overall, the fielding was a bit inconsistent although there were a couple of great efforts as well. 208 is a stiff target but the track is a belter too.
