Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) veteran Yusuf Pathan has likened his one-handed stunner to dismiss Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) batting mainstay and skipper Virat Kohli with plucking mangoes from trees, while bantering with his brother Irfan Pathan on social media.

Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan and Alex Hales were removed courtesy Siraj and Southee respectively.

Moeen cracked two fours in a seven-ball stay at the crease before inside-edging Kaul behind, bringing the big-hitting De Grandhomme to the crease.

But after the dismissal of Vohra, RCB lost few wickets in quick succession and were reduced to 84/5. Last night's performance wasn't their best with the ball, yet when it came to the crunch moments, the bowlers lifted their game and provided the timely breakthroughs. (Williamson 56, Shakib 35) SRH all-out Siraj, in his second spell, scalped the wickets of Yusuf and Wriddhiman in the 19th over with Hyderabad struggling at 143/7.

For the Sunrisers, Shakib Al Hasan scalped 2, including Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli. The 29-year-old India captain also rued RCB's inability to finish matches. In a little under five overs, RCB slumped to 84 for 5. The paper shows the results that have to go in RCB's favour.

Kohli, however, looked in ominous form and did not lose a single opportunity to punish the bad deliveries. That is when SRH use their trump card - Rashid Khan. "If you have strong characters, you will always do well", Virat Kohli said after the match.


Sunrisers Hyderabad has been on a roll this season but same could not be said for their opponent of the day.

SRH know their primary strength is bowling, so they don't try to be fancy with the bat. They don't go out of the their limitations and that's why they are so successful so far.

"As an all-round team Chennai and Punjab are good". However with departure of both the batsmen, the wickets fell like house of cards with SRH losing 5 wickets in last two overs of the inning, out of which two were run outs.

This was SRH's fifth consecutive win. This was when captain Kane Williamson joined hands with Shakib Al Hasan in order to build a partnership.

The victory means Sunrisers are now two points clear at the top of the table and destined for a place in the play-offs, while Bangalore's hopes of making it through look extremely bleak.
