Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore and David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad faced off in a crucial IPL match on Wednesday. After winning the toss, Hyderabad captain David Warner first invited RCB to bat.
Batting first, Royal Challengers Bangalore scored 149 runs in the allotted 20 overs. RCB reached the target with the help of captain Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell. Apart from these two, no other RCB batsman could stand in front of the Hyderabad spinners on this day. In reply, Hyderabad captain David Warner batted brilliantly. However, after Warner’s dismissal, Hyderabad’s batting line-up collapsed like a house of cards and Hyderabad lost by six runs.
One of the main reasons for Hyderabad’s loss on this day is Manish Pandey, the star batsman of the team. Cricket experts believe that Manish Pandey’s extremely slow innings helped Hyderabad lose the match. Hyderabad have picked Manish Pandey for an exchange of Rs 11 crore this season. However, the hope that Manish Pandey was included in the team is a complete failure of Manish. On the other hand, Manish Pandey has become a villain by playing a slow innings of 38 off 39 balls in this low scoring match.
