IPL 2020 Eliminator: RCB vs SRH Score, Highlights, Commentary and Status


Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 6 wickets: Qualifier 2, here come Hyderabad and in style! What a turnaround it has been from the Orange Army. An easy chase in the end with two of the coolest heads in Williamson and Holder taking their team home without much trouble. There was a moment when Bangalore would’ve thought that they could force a collapse but with Kane out there, it didn’t occur. And Bangalore’s wait to lift their first-ever Indian T20 League title has been extended for another edition.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (131/7)

Virat Kohli (6/7): Jason Holder to Virat Kohli, OUT! CAUGHT! It has not worked at the top of the order for Cheeku! The wicket that Hyderabad were looking for, comes to them. Fullish and on the pads, Kohli looks to tuck it fine of the keeper, to the fine leg boundary. But it seems to have clipped the glove and gone just to the left of the keeper. Shreevats takes a good diving catch. Kohli did not wait much, started walking.

Devdutt Padikkal (1/6): Jason Holder to Devdutt Padikkal, OUT! TAKEN! DDP has not timed that at all. He has batted well for Bangalore this season, but not this time. Short ball, Padikkal goes back and looks to pull but he does not time it well at all. It was uppish and over the head of Priyam Garg at short mid-wicket. The fielder had to leap and take it. He does so, taking a wonderful catch.

Aaron Finch (32/30): Shahbaz Nadeem to Aaron Finch, OUT! CAUGHT! Finch gives himself some room on the off side, but gives the fielder a good chance. Shahbaz Nadeem picks a wicket. Tossed up around off, Finch gives room and looks to power this over covers. However, he does not time it well. It goes high in the air ahead of sweeper cover. Abdul Samad, the man there, runs in and takes a good catch.

AB de Villiers (56/43): T Natarajan to AB de Villiers, OUT! BOWLED! Outstanding again, from T Natarajan. AB is frustrated with himself. A well made 56 from 43 balls though. A yorker on middle, de Villiers camps back and tries to dig it out but misses. The middle pole is knocked out.

Moeen Ali (0/1): Shahbaz Nadeem to Moeen Ali, OUT! RUN OUT! What is going on? Rashid Khan, you beauty! A free hit and out? Yes, run outs are possible! Very full and around off, Moeen Ali jams it out to Rashid Khan at cover. He wants a single and takes off. Rashid collects the ball, flicks a throw at the stumps at the bowler’s end and hits. Ali is nowhere in the picture.

Shivam Dube (8/13): Jason Holder to Shivam Dube, OUT! TAKEN! Warner takes the catch. What an addition Holder has been to the Hyderabad squad, into the attack again, takes a wicket. Full and on leg, Shivam closes the face of his bat to flick but gets a leading edge. It is uppish and goes to the left of Warner at mid off. David rushes there and takes it comfortably.

Washington Sundar (5/6): T Natarajan to Washington Sundar, OUT! CAUGHT! Safely held. Abdul Samad has one of the safest pair of hands in this Hyderabad side. Full and around off, Sundar looks to cream that over the off side but ends up hitting it straight in the air to Samad at deep point. Abdul did not have to move an inch.

Navdeep Saini* (9/8) and Mohammed Siraj* (10/7): T Natarajan to Mohammed Siraj, A couple to finish. Very full and around off, Siraj manages to bunt this down to long on. They come back for the second and BANGALORE FINISH ON 131/7.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (132/4)

David Warner (17/17): Mohammed Siraj to David Warner, OUT! CAUGHT! There was a definite sound there. Bangalore are pumped and are celebrating. Length ball on top of middle and leg, Warner looks to play at it. There seemed to have been some sound as the ball passes through him. De Villiers takes it diving to his right and appeals for a caught behind. It is not given. Kohli has a long chat with with the bowler and the keeper and flashes the ‘T’ in the nick of time. In comes Ultra Edge and there is a spike as the ball passes the bat, an inside edge of sorts. The third umpire also has a zoom angle to the Ultra Edge. A tough call for him to make but seeing the spike as the ball passes near the gloves, he gives it out.

Shreevats Goswami (0/3): Mohammed Siraj to Shreevats Goswami, OUT! TAKEN! A breakthrough straightaway for Bangalore. Siraj dangles a full length carrot outside off, Goswami goes for the drive. However, he gets an outside edge, it goes to the left of de Villiers. ABD, dives and takes it. A couple of wobbles but he manages to hold onto it. Siraj is pumped!

Manish Pandey (24/21): Adam Zampa to Manish Pandey, OUT! CAUGHT! The nerves always get the better of one. Wonderful catch from AB. Flatter ball outside off, Pandey camps back and looks to cut. The ball though keeps a tad low as it approaches him. He cuts but gets an underedge. De Villiers was alert and takes it with aplomb. Hyderabad need 77 runs in 69 balls. The required rate slowly climbing up.

Priyam Garg (7/14): Yuzvendra Chahal to Priyam Garg, OUT! TAKEN! Good catch from Zampa. Australians are very good when fielding in the deep. Floats a legbreak on off, Garg looks to go big over covers. He hits it in the air with the turn but does not time it well. It goes high in the air. Zampa, who was at sweeper cover, comes running to his right, judges the ball well and takes a very good catch. Not at all easy that one. Hyderabad need 65 runs in 49 balls still.

Kane Williamson* (50/44) and Jason Holder* (24/20): Navdeep Saini to Jason Holder, FOUR! GAME OVER! Very full and well outside off, Jason Holder moves across and squeezes it out through point. The ball races away for a boundary. HYDERABAD WIN BY 6 WICKETS AND GO THROUGH TO QUALIFIER 2!
