Kohli: AB is not a normal human being

Kohli: AB is not a normal human being

RCB scored 218-6 after being given the chance to set a target.

Royal Challengers Bangalore's bowlers struggled to contain Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey, who added 135 runs in 65 balls for the third wicket and nearly saw the Sunrisers home. The SRH bowlers, known for their disciplined bowling, found themselves at the receiving end. After the loss of two early wickets (Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli), RCB seemed to have lost the plot. Typically, the overs following these mini-collapses are used by new batsmen to get their eyes in, which leads to that old captain's lament at the end of the game: that the team fell 15-20 runs short. All five of their bowlers have been outstanding, with Bhuvi and Rashid Khan leading the way.

Kohli was joined in the middle by AB de Villiers and the South African maestro announced his intentions at the beginning itself as he hit Shakib Hasan for consecutive boundaries in the second over and followed the same pattern by creaming the first two deliveries of the third over bowled by Sandeep Sharma to boundary. Soft dismissal for the left hander.

But the way Williamson and Pandey batted to almost see Sunrisers home proved why they are serious challengers for the IPL title.

Williamson finally holed out to fine leg off the first ball of the final over and Pandey was unable to take his side home. When you're chasing, a lot needs to go your way and you need to make very good decisions. From data updated until May 13, Royal Challengers' fielders had saved a net total of 36 runs, which was more than any other team.

Royal Challengers Bangalore kept their playoff hopes alive by trumping Sunrisers Hyderabad by 14 runs at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Thursday (May 17). Bangalore's fortunes have changed ever since the inclusion of Tim Southee and the bowling attack mentored by Ashish Nehra is finally executing their plans.

Although de Villiers talked down the hype.

There are good fielders, there are great fielders and then there's AB de Villiers. Moeen got the strike and smashed Kaul for a six on the 5th ball. Despite the demanding required rate, the Sunrisers captain never once appeared hurried or under pressure at the crease. "It was nice to go out and express myself in the last game here, for the fans and team, for my own and team's confidence in me as well so that we can keep going forward", Ali said, talking about his performance.

RCB will now face Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur on Saturday, hoping a win will be enough to go through. The 30-year-old was fortunate not to be out on 23 when Dhawan caught his attempt, only for him to touch the boundary and the Englishman made Sunrisers pay by smashing six sixes and two fours in his 34-ball 65-run knock.

Rashid Khan was Sunrisers' best bowler.
