so if KKR win tomorrow, teams from the four metros will be in the playoffs #IPL2019

Hetmyer (& Sundar) performing after being left out of the season encapsulates the importance of backing talent & trusting it. Hetmyer is such an exciting player & only giving him four matches to prove himself was grossly unfair. #IPL #RCBvSRH — Freddie Wilde (@fwildecricket) May 4, 2019

Well done, RCB. Took your age-old revenge by putting SRH's season in jeopardy after they have done the same to you year after year. #RCBvSRH #IPL2019 — Shubh AggarWall (@shubh_chintak) May 4, 2019
Sunrisers’ innings was not smooth sailing in the first 10 overs, losing regular wickets despite quick runs in the initial overs. Washington Sundar did the bulk of the damage for RCB.
Washington Sundar has taken out Martin Guptill and Manish Pandey in his first over. This is only his third match for RCB this #IPL2019
How he didn't make it to the team earlier remains a mystery. #RCBvSRH

Sunrisers going hard but might run out of batsmen. Suspect they have rated this a 180 wicket. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 4, 2019
Someone tempt RCB with some big name (big name in their dictionary, not performance wise which they don't look at anyway) and get Washington Sundar.
Let the lad play more matches.

Add Washington Sundar to the list of 'what were RCB thinking' for this season's review. #IPL2019 — Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) May 4, 2019
But skipper Kane Williamson finished the innings exceptionally well to give SRH a competitive 175. Yet again in an RCB game, a controversial no-ball occurred during the final over.
Williamson is looking in far better touch than in any innings he's batted so far in this year's IPL.
His Attack rating today is 136 (2nd highest he's managed)
His Timing rating today is 378 (highest he's managed)
His Power rating today is 159 (highest he's managed)#IPL

Kane Williamson joined MS Dhoni finishing academy today after scoring 20+ runs of Umesh Yadhav last over! #RCBvsSRH — The Dreamer ❤️ (@CzanB) May 4, 2019
was suffering from Shoulder injury
and then lost his beloved grand mother and was also going through a rough phase with bat but what a knock from captain KANE Williamson in a do or die match....#RCBvSRH

What an innings by Kane Williamson. 70* (43) on a virtual quarter final. That's what Big Players can do in big games despite not being in good form. They just know how to step up on big occasions. ✌️ #RCBvSRH pic.twitter.com/kwt50kwpfm — Siddharth Jha (@jha_siddhus91) May 4, 2019
At one stage even 150 looked difficult but Williamson’s strong finish has given his team decent chance of winning. RCB have been below par this season, and Hyderabad will hope that there is no last gasp revival

Pathetic umpiring in this IPL continues, given this a No Ball in the last over!! pic.twitter.com/Cl7coCMck1 — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) May 4, 2019
KKR are more frustrated for that noball than RCB.

Royal Challengers Bangalore got off to a horrible start. Parthiv Patel was dismissed for a duck, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers were also dismissed cheaply.
That's what happens when you are short of confidence. You just don't feel motivated. Virat Kohli gone, AB de Villiers gone. #RCBvSRH — Anirudh Guru Dutt (@AnirudhDutt) May 4, 2019

As a tribute to RCB fans , Kohli & ABD decided to get out early so fans can go back home on time !! #RCBvSRH — Boring... (@graphicalcomic) May 4, 2019
But Gurkeerat Singh Mann and Shimron Hetmyer stitched together a 100-plus partnership to take RCB home and end the season on a high.
— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 4, 2019
What explains #RCB playing with three overseas players when Hetmeyer was sitting on the bench?? Understandable when four overseas were available and he wasn’t one of them after the first few games... #RCBvSRH #IPL — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) May 4, 2019
We're witnessing consistently mediocre fielding knocking a team out of the IPL. Unreal since it's coming against RCB after AB and Kohli have been dismissed. Oh, Sunrisers ♂️
— Srinath (@srinathsripath) May 4, 2019
Can't recall a 100-run partnership for RCB without involving Virat, AB de Villiers, or former RCBian, Chris Gayle. Nonetheless, Hetmyer and Gurkeerat have been sensational thus far. #RCBvSRH pic.twitter.com/SBn1n7ma9z — Sparsh Telang (@_cricketsparsh) May 4, 2019
The stand by Hetmyer & Gurkeerat is the first 100-plus partnership for RCB not involving Virat Kohli or AB de Villiers since 102 by Chris Gayle & Cheteshwar Pujara against KXIP in Mohali in 2013.#RCBvSRH

If only RCB hadn't assigned Hetmyer drinks duties so early in the season. Wonder when we will get to say the same of Dube Probably when he leaves for Kings XI Punjab #RCBvSRH — Rohit Sankar (@imRohit_SN) May 4, 2019
