IPL 2020 Highlights, RCB vs SRH Match, Full Cricket Score: Holder's cameo helps Sunrisers win by five wickets, keeps playoff hopes alive

23:17 (IST)

That brings an end to another day of high-octane cricketing action. The top two teams – RCB (at second) and DC (third) failed miserably and will try to have the last laugh once they take on each other in their last clash. We still have the last four matches and three spots are still up for grabs for playoffs this year. It is going right down to the wire.

That’s it from us today but do join us for the live coverage of the double-header tomorrow, where RR take on KKR and CSK square off against KXIP. 

23:06 (IST)

SRH captain David Warner: Losing Vijay is a big miss. For us we have worked out, how to go about at the top of the order. All the credit today goes to the bowlers. The wicket now is slowing up quite a bit. It just can’t be slower balls or yorkers, you have to hit the deck as well. Tonight, the bowlers have executed it well. Dubai has been the same, I think it gets dewy here. It wasn't a surprise at all. Holder's a great all-rounder. To bowl a bouncer against someone like him, you have to dig it very short. It’s great to have consistency and momentum heading into the next game, which is a do or die as well. In 2016 we had to win three games and we did that.

23:06 (IST)

Sandeep Sharma: When I started bowling, the wicket was a bit sticky, so my plan was to bowl wicket-to-wicket. I’ve been bowling knuckle ball and have been getting big help from Jonny Bairstow on how I can go about my business. It took me around 3-4 months to land it at proper pace. It is coming along nicely at the moment. He’s obviously one of the greatest batsmen this sport has seen and it’s always special to dismiss him. We’re finding our momentum. One game to go, and we’re excited for that.

23:05 (IST)

Sandeep Sharma is the Player of the Match for his haul of 2/20 from four overs:


 

22:52 (IST)

Virat Kohli, RCB captain: It was never enough. We thought 140 would be a good total, but things changed drastically. There was a lot of dew in the second innings, and it was very difficult to hold the ball. You need enough runs on the board regardless of the conditions. Today we weren’t brave enough with the bat, and credit to their bowlers. It’s a very competitive tournament, and you can’t take any game or any team lightly. It’s going to be a cracker of a game. I’ve always been a Bangalore boy in the IPL, never drifted towards Delhi.

22:50 (IST)

We have the last four matches left and three spots still available for playoffs this IPL.

Done and Dusted! SRH have beaten RCB by five wickets, with more than five overs to spare. Holder was an assuring presence for SRH and sealed his side’s victory in style, with a massive six over long-on.

22:45 (IST)

After 14 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 115/5 ( Jason Holder 20 , Abdul Samad 0)

Saini has been called back into the attack. Kohli reviews for LBW off the first ball against Holder, but the ball touched Holder’s bat on that occasion. Holder pulls the second ball for massive six, before inside edging off the next and yet, still finding a boundary. Sharma helps the ball on its way for a six off the penultimate ball before handing a simple catch to Gurkeerat in the deep. 19 runs and a wicket in that over.

OUT! Unnecessary shot from Abhishek. He holes out to Gurkeerat Singh in the deep.  Abhishek Sharma c Gurkeerat Singh b Navdeep Saini 8(5)

SIX! Sharma just helps it on its way for a maximum. Wise thing, he used the pace of Saini on that occasion.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians latest updates: Done and Dusted! SRH have beaten RCB by five wickets and with more than five overs to spare. Holder was an assuring presence for SRH and sealed his side’s victory in style, with a massive six over long-on.

 Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 52 of IPL 2020 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

RCB are second in the league table with 14 points from 12 matches while SRH are at the sixth spot with 10 points from same number of matches.

A playoff spot is at stake for RCB in the match. The equation is pretty simple for them, win the match and qualify for the playoff. However, for that to happen, RCB would need to beat their current losing streak which is now two-game long.

Virat Kohli and Co have lost their last two matches against CSK and MI. And while the clash against SRH is not a do-or-die situation for RCB, with one more game in hand, a defeat would adversely impact their net run rate.

SRH, on the other hand, would be determined to put up a tough challenge. The Hyderabad franchise could reach 14 points with a win against RCB and MI in their last match. And could qualify for the playoff if RCB, DC, or KXIP don't reach 16 points and SRH possess a better net run rate than competitors.

SRH would once again rely on inspirational captain David Warner for his leadership and runs in the battle against RCB. Rashid Khan remains the franchise's top bowler with Sandeep Sharma and T Natarajan providing able assistance.

For RCB the main concern is the fitness of pacer Navdeep Saini who missed the match against MI after suffering a split webbing in his right hand against CSK. His replacement Dale Steyn proved to be expensive against MI as RCB lost by five wickets. The franchise would also hope for runs from Shivam Dube and Gurkeerat Singh just in case Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have another quite outing.
