SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) innings

On the fourth ball of that innings, Shreevats Goswami was dismissed by Mohammed Siraj for a duck. In the late moment of the powerplay, Siraj took another wicket as he dismissed another opener and captain David Warner for 17 runs. Though the on-field umpire originally gave not out decision in that caught behind the appeal, the RCB took the review and after monitoring closely along with using the Ultra Edge system, that decision was finally changed in RCB’s favour. However, there was no clear evidence to completely support any decision.

In the ninth over, Adam Zampa dismissed Manish Pandey for 24 runs. Later, in the 12th over, Yuzvendra Chahal took the wicket of Priyam Garg (7). At that stage, SRH were struggling on 67/4.

But Kane Williamson batted superbly which helped their side to fight back. Williamson and Holder put 65 runs partnership for the unbroken fifth wicket and it helped SRH to achieve the success in that chase.
