Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) continued their winning momentum in the  ongoing IPL 2021 as they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 6 runs on Wednesday.

Chasing a paltry target of 150, Sunrisers were in a good position after David Warner and Manish Pandey put the team in a strong position by adding 83 runs for the second wicket. Warner scored 54 off 37 balls at a strike rate of close to 146 before Kyle Jamieson dismissed him in the 14th over.

The dismissal of Warner followed a massive collapse as the 2016 champions could only manage to reach 143/9 in their 20 overs.

RCB spinner Shahbaz Ahmed turned the game on its head when he came to bowl the 17th over. The left-armer picked up three wickets in that over and inspired his side to make a comeback in the game. He sent Jonny Bairstow (12), Pandey (38) and Abdul Samad (0) to complete his three-wicket feat.

Earlier, Glenn Maxwell displayed his top-quality batting and smashed a much-needed half-century. The RCB power-hitter scored 59 from 41 deliveries packed with five fours and three humungous sixes.

Apart from Maxi, skipper Virat Kohli also made a valuable contribution as RCB posted 149/8 on the board. Kohli scored 33 off 29 balls with the help of four boundaries.
