Twitter Reactions: Bowlers shine as SRH beat RCB in a thriller

Posted On / /

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) bowlers once again successfully defended a total to beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 5 runs at home on Monday night.

Chasing a stiff target of 147, Virat Kohli & Co. were restricted to 141/6 in 20 overs. RCB needed 12 off the last over and Bhuvneshwar Kumar executed the plan well to keep the batsmen silent.

Earlier, riding on an emphatic performance from skipper Kane Williamson, SRH notched up 146/10 in 20 overs. For RCB, Tim Southee and Mohammed Siraj scalped 3 wickets apiece.

Later, RCB lost Parthiv Patel but Virat Kohli (39) took the onus on himself and smashed the SRH bowlers before getting dismissed off a blinder by Yusuf Pathan. No other batsman looked comfortable and the visitors eventually lost the match.

Here’s how the Twitter world reacted to the match:
