With World Test Championship points on the line, the Ajit Agarkar-led senior selection committee picked a full-strength squad for the longest format.
It seems Kane Williamson-led SunRisers Hyderabad is setting a new trend of defending low totals in the 11th season of Indian Premier League (IPL).
On Monday, Hyderabad once again defended a low score and sealed Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore’s fate. With this defeat, Virat Kohli’s sixth-placed RCB is virtually out of the race to the playoffs.
Batting first, SunRisers put a mediocre target of 146 runs in front of Bangalore but Kane Williamson’s side produced a sublime bowling performance and defeated RCB by 5 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
At the beginning of the second innings, everything was going well for Virat’s side. But the game took a U-turn after explosive SRH batsman Yusuf Pathan pulled off a stunning one-handed catch and sent RCB skipper Virat Kohli packing.
