Same as the previous match, the chasing team is unable to chase the low scores in M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. In the previous match, Kolkata Knight Rider are unable to score 152 runs in the 20 overs as the wickets fell in the middle overs to spinner Rahul Chahar.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

In this match, Royal Challengers Bangalore has struggled to score runs in the middle overs as the opener batsmen Devdutt Padikal 11(13) and Shahbaz Ahmed 14 (10) lost their wickets in the 3rd and 7th overs of the match.

Then Glenn Maxwell and Virat Kohli built a partnership of 44 runs in 38 balls. In Jason Holder's 13th over, Virat Kohli's 33(29) gave a catch to Vijay Shankar in the outfield. The new addition to the team has proven worthy.

Rashid Khan took the AB de Villiers's 1(5) wicket in the 14th over by giving the catch to David Warner at the extra cover while trying to slash the ball to the boundary. In the next Rashid Khan's over, Washington Sundar 8(11) gave a catch to Manish Pandey, he ran from the long-off and dived to catch the ball.

In the 17th overs, the Natrajan's ball edged the bat and caught by the wicketkeeper behind. Dan Christain 1(2) didn't agree with the decision of the on-field umpires and went upstairs. In the ultra edge, there is a spike when the ball is passing the bat and RCB lost their review.

From then, Glenn Maxwell started to show that he is an X factor in the game. He made his first IPL 50 in 4 years. With this half-century, he made a total of 7 IPL half centries from his debut in 2012.

If he didn't play like he played in this match, the RCB would have scored below 130. By the end of the game, RCB has scored 149 with a loss of 9 wickets.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

With an easy target to chase, Sunrisers Hyderabad has started their Innings, at first, they have lost their opener Wriddhimam Saha 1(9) to Mohammed Siraj in the 3rd over.

Then came Manish Pandey to the crease, with the help of their team captain David Warner, he built a partnership of 83 runs in 69 balls. Before David Warner wicket is down, I thought that the match would be completed before 20 overs.

But everything changed after Jameison took David Warner's 54(37) wicket in the 14th over. By the end of the 14th over, SRH needs 48 runs in 36 balls which is pretty much easy and the equation can be reachable.

From then the RCB bowlers done their magic by taking wickets regularly in the last 4 overs. Three wickets in Shahbaz Ahmed's over, he took Bairstow 12 (13) in the first ball, Manish Pandey 38(39) in the second ball and Abdul Samad 0(2) in the last ball of his over. He has really done big damage to the SRH batting lineup.

The big gun of the first match, Harshal Patel took the wicket of Vijay Shankar 3(5) and the wickets of the bottom order fell due to pressure and Sunriser lost their second match by 6 runs.
