Watch: Rashid Khan’s bullet throw runs out Moeen Ali on free-hit delivery
Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore are playing against each other at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi in eliminator fixture. The match was loaded with full of twists and surprises.
Both teams are giving absolutely everything to win this contest in a bid to play against Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier which will be played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. SRH captain, David Warner won the toss and opted to bowl first.
SRH bowlers tried to keep the RCB batsmen in check. They didn’t really allow RCB batsmen to go for the kill. RCB ended up posting a tricky total of 131 for the loss of 7 wickets in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
AB de Villiers top-scored for RCB with a 56 off 43 balls including 5 fours. On the other hand, Jason Holder was the pick of the bowlers for SRH as he picked 3/25 in his quota of four overs. Natarajan, as usual, continued his good form with the ball as he picked two wickets to his name.
Apart from this, there was one moment which became the talking point. Rashid Khan produced an absolute piece of fielding effort against RCB as his bullet throw dismissed RCB all-rounder Moeen Ali. The England all-rounder could have made use of free hit to good effect but he ended up falling short of the crease as he was run out in free hit.
