Match 6: SRH vs RCB

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) successfully won their second consecutive game after defeating the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Match 6 of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday.

RCB made an excellent comeback by defending a total of 149 against SRH. The match began with SRH chasing a total of 150. David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha made a very cautious start, scoring 13 in the first two overs.

Further, the fifty-run partnership was up between the two teams as RCB continued to look out for a breakthrough. Although SRH was in full control they had to score 42 from the final five overs. 

RCB skipper Kohli on the other hand handed the ball to Shahbaz Ahmed in the 17th over and this turned out to be a note-worthy move as the left-arm spinner scalped 3 wickets in an over. Finally, the pressure was built on SRH as they ended up losing two wickets. At first, Harshal Patel got rid of Vijay Shankar, and later, Siraj dismissed Jason Holder after he holed out deep in the penultimate over.

Harshal Patel had 16 runs to defend in the final over and he bowled a no-ball, keeping himself calm and composed thus helping RCB make a glorious win.
