IPL 2019| 'Nice Shimron!' - Twitter Lauds Hetmyer, Mann Show

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers did not fire for Royal Challengers Bangalore but the home side managed to secure a four-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kane Williamson and their side will now have to wait for the result between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders to know their fate.

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.

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.

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.

But Gurkeerat Singh Mann and Shimron Hetmyer stitched together a 100-plus partnership to take RCB home and end the season on a high.
