Sunrisers had played 17 games against the Royal Challengers before today’s game and had won 10 out of those 18 matches. RCB had only won 7 times and one match had no result. This indicated that Sunrisers Hyderabad were the favorites for tonight’s IPL match but the result will shock you.

There was nothing much from the lower middle order or the tail and the Royal Challengers Bangalore finished their innings on 149 runs, Which was a below par score on this ground. Sunrisers bowled well to contain the star studded batting lineup of RCB with in 150. Jason Holder was the pick of the bowlers and took three wickets for his team.
