The joint third worst figures in Twenty20 cricket played a significant, but not solitary, part in Bangalore amassing their highest total of the season, a whopping 218 for 6 studded with 20 fours and 12 towering sixes, including one off de Villiers's scathing willow that cleared the ground and landed in the adjoining Queen's Road. RCB then needed de Villiers to pluck a catch out of thin air to get rid of Hales.
During the 13th over, AB unleashed his typical "shuffle-across-and-whack" stroke which soared out of the stadium and resulted in a roaring rumble from the crowd. Kohli and AB de Villiers have scored 514 and 358 runs respectively in 12 matches.
Williamson took over and caressed his way to a quickfire half-century. Having defended targets as low as 120 this season, SRH have the best bowling line-up in the IPL by a country mile.
Thampi, who had replaced Bhuvneshwar Kumar ahead of the encounter, conceded 19, 18, 14, 19 in his four overs and overtook Ishant Sharma's previous most expensive spell of 0/66 in 2013. It certainly was a night to forget for the 24-year old and his name, unfortunately, will be scribbled in the history books for undesired reasons. It took a brilliant catch on the rope from Shikhar Dhawan to dismiss the South African superstar, who now sits eighth on the IPL leading run-scorer's table, despite missing two matches due to illness.
De Grandhomme had other ideas. Here's the detailed description of that unfathomable effort.
SRH skipper steps up, yet again!
Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to unleash his strong bowling line-up against the home side. Just like that, Williamson raised a fifty off 28 balls.
Williamson went about his business in elegant fashion without taking much risk and was ably supported by Pandey at the other end as the duo stitched magnificent 135 runs for the second wicket off just 68 deliveries to virtually take Hyderabad home. Apart from Openers, Yusuf Pathan (186), Manish Pandey (189) and Shakib-Al-Hasan (166) have also chipped in at crunch situations for SRH. RCB needs their middle order to click and the onus is on Mandeep Singh and Colin de Grandhomme to give that stability in the middle order.
They will now travel to Jaipur to take on the Rajasthan Royals in a match that might just be a virtual quarter-final for both the sides. SRH will look to stay in the top two, while for Bangalore it is a matter of survival.
