AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match.
Spirited effort from the Sunrisers trying to chase 219. Williamson was absolutely superb. Still can’t get over that catch from De villiers to dismiss Hales. RCB are well and truly in it , and after looking down and out after the first half are now at No5 in points table #RCBvSRH— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) May 17, 2018
5 runs off the final over as we fall short of 14 runs.— SunRisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers) May 17, 2018
It was a good match and we have scored better than all of our scores so far. We will pick upon the gaps and come back stronger for the next matches.#SRH-204/3(20.0)#RCBvSRH #IPL2018
RCB beat SRH by 14 runs.
Siraj to bowl the final over. CAUGHT! He sends down the first ball towards the leg stump and Williamson who shuffled across to the off stump doesn’t get enough on it and de Grandhomme keep his composure to take the catch right at the ropes in the deep fine leg area. Siraj pitches the next ball outside off and Pandey who was looking for the scoop completely misses. That’s 2 dot balls to start the over. He sends in a full toss and Pandey fails to connect yet again as the ball comes off his pads and they pick up a single. That’s brilliant by Siraj, all he has to do is bowl three legitimate deliveries now.
DROPPED! Hooda goes for the big shot on the next ball but Kohli at long off drops the catch. Siraj keeps his composure and completes the over brilliantly. RCB win the game by 14 runs.
SRH 204/3 after 20 overs.
Southee to bowl his final over. He starts with a wide. Southee sends down the Yorker on the next ball and Pandey hits it straight down the ground, de Grandhomme gets to the ball but slips and lets it escape for a FOUR. Pandey then gets under the next ball and sends it over mid off for back-to-back FOURs. Southee does brilliantly to give away just 2 runs off the next 3 balls. He sends down a fuller delivery outside off to end the over and Pandey gets behind it with power, sending the ball zipping to long off for a FOUR.
SRH need 20 off the last over to win.

FIFTY up for Pandey 50 (30)
Siraj back into the attack. Siraj looks for the Yorker on the first delivery and Pandey just goes across the stumps and flicks the ball over fine leg for a SIX. He then gets low in his crease and plays an upper cut to take the very next ball over short third man for a FOUR. Siraj does well to give away just 3 runs off the next 3 balls. Siraj nails the Yorker to end the over with a single. 14 runs off the over.
SRH need 35 off 12 balls to win.
SRH 184/2 after 18 overs.
Southee to bowl the 17th. He starts well bowling to his field, sending down wide Yorkers. A misfield by Umesh allows Pandey to pick up a couple off the 3rd ball. He gives away just 5 runs off the first 5 balls. Southee keeps his composure and sends down another wide Yorker to end the over. Just 6 runs off it. That was a top class over from Southee.
SRH need 49 runs off 18 balls to win.
SRH 170/2 after 17 overs.
Chahal to bowl his final over. Pandey drags the shorter ball behind square leg for a FOUR. Pandey sends the next ball to deep square leg and goes for the double, it was a quick throw back from de Grandhomme and Parthiv did well to direct the ball onto the stumps but Pandey only just manages to make it back into the crease. Pandey plays the last ball to mid wicket and once again they pick up a double to end the over. Good running from the SRH men. 12 comes off the over.

de Grandhomme continues. Pandey sends the first ball racing towards the deep midwicket boundary, Kohli does well as he puts in a full length dive and gets his hand to the ball but it runs away at the very last moment for a FOUR. Pandey then clips the next ball to deep square leg for another FOUR. Williamson gets a low full toss and he sends it flying over deep square for a SIX. Pandey gets a good length delivery to end the over with and he launches it over long on for a SIX. 22 runs off that over.
SRH 152/2 after 15 overs.
Umesh back into the attack. Williamson executes a beautiful cut, sending the 3rd ball behind backward point for a FOUR. This is sensational batting from the SRH captain who seems to be fighting a lone battle here. Umesh sends down a shorter ball to end the over and Williamson tears into it, pulling it over deep midwicket for a SIX.
SRH 130/2 after 14 overs.
Colin de Grandhomme comes into the attack. Williamson whips the 3rd ball to deep midwicket to pick up a double, that brings up the FIFTY for the SRH captain. His 8th half century this season. Williamson ends the over by muscling the ball over deep midwicket for a SIX.

Chahal back into the attack. He finds some great turn on the very first ball beating Williamson. He keeps it tight in the over not giving away any loose deliveries. Just 3 runs come off it. SRH cannot afford these quiet overs.

Alex Hales finally walks back and in all honesty, should have been sitting in the dugout right now.
But not taking anything away from @ABdeVilliers17's stunner off @MoeenAli 🙌🔥❤️ #PlayBold #RCBvSRH #RCB pic.twitter.com/CJPKkUbEVn
Moeen Ali comes into the attack. He restricts the batsmen to just singles off the first 5 balls. CAUGHT! Hales pulls the last delivery towards deep midwicket, de Villiers runs towards it and leaps miles up and takes a spectacular catch with just one hand right at the edge of the boundary. What a BEAUTY! It was an unbelievable catch by de Villiers. Hales who has been dropped twice is stunned.
SRH 64/2 after 8 overs.
WICKET! Hales c de Villiers b Moeen 37 (24)
