Warner and Bairstow tons thrash Bangalore
Two blistering knocks from David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and tremendous bowling from Mohammad Nabi saw Sunrisers Hyderabad seal a huge win over Royal Challengers Bangalore.
After winning the toss, Virat Kohli opted to field first and it was a horrendous decision in the end. Openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow started the proceedings with all guns blazing.
With 12 fours and 7 sixes, Bairstow was the first man, who reached to his hundred followed by his partnership Warner, who reached to his hundred in the last over.
The magnificent duo put 185 runs in the opening stand, which is the highest in the history of IPL. The bowling department of RCB had their worst outing in history and only Chahal managed to pick up one wicket. Warner played till the end and powered his side to a massive score of 231 runs.
Considering the strong batting department of Bangalore, the match was still not over. But a shocking batting performance forced to change the opinion.
Parthiv Patel was the first man to go and then a few balls later, Shimron Hetmyer also departed. Afghanistan off-spinner Mohammad Nabi, who was playing his first match this season was on fire with the ball and picked up all the first three wickets. He later on picked up another one and conceded only 11 runs in his 4 overs.
Bangalore were in all sorts of trouble with 6 down for only 35 runs. In the end Grandhomme’s 32-ball 37 saved them from huge embarrassment and they crossed the 100-mark.
Sandeep Sharma was the other bowled, who joined in and wrecked through the RCB batting order. He picked up three wickets to help Hyderabad seal a huge win by 118 runs.
