Highlights

00:07 (IST)

That's it from us in our coverage of the 39th match of IPL 2018, with Sunrisers Hyderabad further consolidating themselves at the top of the points table with a narrow win over Royal Challengers Bangalore at home! The woes just doesn't seem to end for RCB skipper Virat Kohli, as his side stares at the prospect of finishing last in the group.

Hope we were able to infuse the excitement of the thrilling encounter in our coverage, and were able to keep you all on the edge of your seats, especially in that final over of the match bowled by Bhuvneshwar. For now, I bid you all goodnight on behalf of my colleague Vaibhav. 

00:02 (IST)

Kane Williamson, SRH captain and MoM: We're playing on tough surfaces, once again this was a tough one. We were aiming for 150 and we weren't far away, so we were in the game. With the ball, we struggled a little bit and our fielding was sloppy. But to come away with a win. Bhuvi was world class. With some of our experienced campaigners stepping up was superb. Bhuvi and Siddharth Kaul have done it before and for a long period of time, did very well last year, doing well this year. Once again we did well to adapt to the surface. Hope we can continue to back them at the death. It's just about trying to adapt to the surfaces at a number of venues. We had a number of key partnerships to get us a competitive total. I suppose on these surfaces, that's what's important is to get a competitive total. That's what you need. We spoke about the playoffs last time. It's about improving. It does get frustrating at times especially with the fielding lapses. As a fielding group, we pride ourselves on being better. Guys held their nerves at key moments which went a long way in us scraping across the line.We want to do better in the next game. Bat and ball, there are things we certainly want to touch on moving forward as a team.

Another night, another successful low total defence for SRH bowlers

23:48 (IST)

This is SRH's fourth consecutive win over RCB in IPL. The last time they lost against RCB was back in 2016 at Bangalore.

"We didn't play well. We just threw it away. That's been the story of our season so far. The fielding was up to the mark. This was a tougher wicket. We should've done a better job. If we have strong characters in this team, we will do better in the tournament. That hasn't been the story of our season," says a dejected RCB skipper Virat Kohli after the five-run loss. 

23:44 (IST)

After 20 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 141/6 ( Mandeep Singh 21 , )

Brilliant bowling by Bhuvneshwar in the last over of the innings, helping SRH pull off a victory from the jaws of defeat! Neither Colin de Grandhomme nor Mandeep Singh are able to connect thanks to the tight lines and lengths from Bhuvi, with only six runs being collected off the over and the wicket of De Grandhomme. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad win by 5 runs, and continue to occupy the top slot in the IPL points table with their eighth win! 

23:43 (IST)

And Bhuvi is back! Few bolwers can defend just 12 in the last over, and concede just six. Credit also to Kaul who set up the defence. The spin twins got the two big wickets, then the seamers sealed the deal. Give the SRH honorary membership of the Defenders of the Earth please.

After 19 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 135/5 ( Mandeep Singh 18 , Colin de Grandhomme 31)

De Grandhomme collects a single off the first ball of the penultimate over. Mandeep uppercuts the ball towards deep point, where Rashid just about stops the ball from crossing over the boundary rope with his left hand, saving two runs for his side. Mandeep sets off for a quick single off the third delivery after getting a thick inside-edge. Dot off the fourth delivery. Mandeep gets an inside-edge while attempting to heave an inswinging yorker off the fifth delivery, setting off for a single nevertheless. Single to CDG off the last ball. Good over from Kaul, conceding seven off it, giving Bhuvi something to defend in the last over. 


RCB need 12 to win off 6 balls

23:30 (IST)

Kaul back into the attack, and will bowl the crucial penultimate over. 

23:29 (IST)

De Grandhome making the match interesting, playing Rashid like an off spinner . It's a strategy that many have advocated against him, especially when the ball is pitched outside off. It's up to Bhuvi now, who hasn't had the best time back.

Rashid Khan has been mesmerizing right through the IPL Not a single batsman has been able to read him. What worked for Grandhomme in the two deliveries was his sheer brute power where he was able to muscle the ball over the fence. No finesse. Just raw power

Bhuvneshwar Kumar brought back in the attack. 

23:25 (IST)

SRH's economy rate of 7.41 in the last 10 overs of this IPL - the best among all the teams and they are showing us once again that how good they are in the last 10 overs.

After 17 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 122/5 ( Mandeep Singh 13 , Colin de Grandhomme 23)

Rashid starts his final over off with a googly, with Mandeep getting a thick inside-edge that sends the ball between his legs, with the batsman setting off for a single. De Grandhomme gets RCB back in the chase with back-to-back sixes off the next two deliveries. De Grandhomme's nearly stumped off the fifth ball, bringing his foot down in the nick of time. Wide off the final delivery. Huge over for RCB, with 14 coming off it. The visitors suddenly are favourites to chase the target down. 


RCB need 25 to win off 18 balls

De Grandhomme slogs the ball down the ground. Pandey, at long on, positions himself for a catch initially, ultimately collecting the ball after one bounce, with the Kiwi collecting a single. Singles collected off the next four deliveries, with the two batsmen rotating the strike to keep the scoreboard ticking. Mandeep gets hit on the back while going for a pull off the last delivery, but sets off for the other end nevertheless. Six off the over. 


RCB need 39 to win off 24 balls

23:17 (IST)

Williamson has kept his three best bowlers back for the last five overs, despite getting Kohli and AB early. He isn't taking this batting line-up lightly. I don't think we will see more than three regular pace balls in these last 24 from the two pace bowlers.

Siddhart Kaul brought back into the attack.

Shakib returns to the attack in the 14th over. Mandeep guides the ball towards deep point off the first delivery, coming back for a second run. Five singles collected off the remainder of the over. The two batsmen at the centre still getting settled, with the equation now started to get a little worrisome for the visitors.

The Englishman fails to connect off the second and third deliveries, before getting an under-edge off the fourth while attempting a leg-side slog. Colin de Grandhomme walks out to the centre, and is floored off the first delivery that he faces. Kaul appeals animatedly for an lbw, but the umpire turns it down, with the ball appearing to go down leg after angling in sharply. Five runs and a wicket off the over.

Well in a game between two teams who are over-reliant on key batters to help them get the runs, SRH ahead at the moment. Williamson was the foundation of the innings for SRH, but now they have knocked out both of the Pillars of RCB in succession. Game set for the choke to be applied by the SRH bowlers and it's thanks to their spin twins again.

FOUR! Moeen's collected two boundaries already, though neither are good cricketing shots! Gets a thick inside-edge that guides the ball wide of the keeper. RCB 84/4

Siddhart Kaul back into the attack in the 12th over. 

22:54 (IST)

Moeen collects his first boundary in IPL, getting a thick outside edge off the first ball, guiding it towards third man. Brings AB on strike with a single off the next ball. The star batsman is dismissed two balls later, dragging the ball onto his stumps, with Rashid deceiving AB with a googly. Fine over from the Afghan, with five coming off the over along with the wicket. 


RCB need 67 to win off 54 balls

Rashid foxes ABD. Double bluff. Two googlies back to back. ABD doesn't read off the hand. But too late to read off the pitch. Big wicket.

De Villiers b Rashid 5(8)

22:49 (IST)

Huge wicket, and Shakib, after taking some stick early on in his spell, has come back beautifully. The players have been talking about how the wicket is a bit two paced, and in that light, a bit of a risky shot from Kohli. Closing the face of the bat to an away going delivery drought with risk, and Shakib capitalised.

FOUR! Moeen flashes hard at a back-of-length delivery from Rashid, and manages to send it over the slip fielder for a boundary. RCB 79/3

Preview: Table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on sixth-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 39th match of ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

SRH have had a strong run in the ongoing season so far, with Kane Williamson taking over the leadership at the outset of the 11th edition of the league following David Warner's removal from the post following the Sandpapergate fallout. Their latest victory came against the struggling Delhi Daredevils (DD), beating them by seven wickets.

RCB, on the other hand, have found themselves struggling to stave off the possibility of finishing last in the league for a second consecutive season. The Virat Kohli-led side registered their second loss of the season to the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) when they failed to defend a modest 128-run target, losing by six wickets.

A win would very well make SRH the first team to qualify for the playoffs this season, with the result also all but ending Kohli's hopes of seeing his team in the top four.

Squads:

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Wriddhiman Saha, Siddharth Kaul, Deepak Hooda, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Shreevats Goswami, Ricky Bhui, Basil Thampi, T Natarajan, Sachin Baby, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan, Tanmay Agarwal, Alex Hales, Carlos Brathwaite, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi and Chris Jordan.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (Captain), Quinton de Kock, Brendon McCullum, AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Chris Woakes, Washington Sundar, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Siraj, Corey Anderson, Parthiv Patel, Tim Southee.
