Welcome to the highlights of the IPL 2022 match between RCB and SRH at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. This was Santadeep Dey , bringing you all the action as it unfolded at the venue.



MAN OF THE MATCH: Marco Jansen

FOURS OF THE MATCH: Abhishek Sharma




SIXES AWARD: Abhishek Sharma




Marco Jansen: I try to keep it as simple as possible. Sometimes it works. I thought the ball was going to swing nicely after the first ball I bowled. This is the best spell I have bowled with the white ball so far.

Kane Willliamson: The guys bowled beautifully. It was an outstanding performance, but for us it's about looking for the next challenge. The ball is swinging a lot more this season, so we have been taking wickets in the PowerPlay.There are a few challenges coming up ahead, so need to be focused.

Faf du Plessis:  We shouldn't have lost so many wickets in the first four overs. We just needed to get through that phase where the ball was swinging. This wicket looked the best, the expectations were pretty high. Jansen bowled well in his first over and got the big wickets. It was a bad day at the office, but you need to keep your chin up. As a team we need to move forward.


SRH 72/1 in 8 overs: Abhishek, looking to hit the winning runs, goes downtown but holes out to Rawat. He is gone for 47(28). Tripathi comes to the crease and gets off the mark with a single off the second ball. GAME. SET. MATCH. A juicy half-volley on offer, Tripathi goes the distance and that will be it from today's game.

SRH 63/0 in 7 overs: Hasaranga has been introduced into the attack. Williamson decides to explore the mid-on region this time. Four. A missed run-out opportunity for RCB as Kohli takes a shy at the stumps. Williamson would have been a goner.

SRH 56/0 in 6 overs: Williamson nudges one past the 'keeper for four. Abhishek then follows it up with two boundaries to long leg and deep extra cover to move to 46(25).

SRH 42/0 in 5 overs: Harshal to run in from over the wicket. Abhishek welcomes him with two fours on the trot.

SRH 33/0 in 4 overs: Whacked in front of square at wide mid-on. Hammered to deep backward point next. Two fours off Abhishek's blade.

SRH 23/0 in 3 overs: Abhishek targets the cover region again. That has been deposited 89m deep into the stands at cover. Four more. A short ball and Abhishek swivel-pulls it down fine.

SRH 10/0 in 2 overs: Hazlewood bowling the hard Test match length. Don't know how useful that'll be with less than 70 on the board. Abhishek runs three with a lofted hit over mid-on. Four. Abhishek comes good with a backfoot punch.

SRH 2/0 in 1 over: Siraj gets one to shape away. Abhishek gets a single off an outside edge. Wide to boot.

Abhishek and Williamson enter the field in an effort to provide Hyderabad a massive NRR boost. Siraj to get things rolling.

RCB 68 in 16.1 overs: RCB folds for 68 as Williamson oscillates about before settling underneath a skier. Bhuvneshwar gets Siraj.

RCB 68/9 in 16 overs: Another one bites the dust! Hasaranga loses his off stump as Natarajan picks another. Timeout!

RCB 65/8 in 15 overs: Bangalore finally gets a boundary as Hasaranga creams a punch through cover.

RCB 58/8 in 14 overs: Umran is mixing it up well. Only a single off it.

RCB 57/8 in 13 overs: Natarajan gets rid of Harshal. The off-stump goes cartwheeling as Natarajan gets one to land on the seam. Two runs off the over.

RCB 55/7 in 12 overs: Wide of off... Out! Caught behind. But Hasaranga has gone for the review. There was a definite sound but turns out it came off the pads.

RCB 53/7 in 11 overs: Harshal glances one down fine-leg for a couple. The second ball is a wide. Just a single comes off the remaining five balls.

RCB 49/7 in 10 overs: OUT! The Sunrisers are tearing into the Bangalore lineup. Shahbaz has edged one down the legside and Pooran does an excellent job behind the stumps again. Excellent seam presentation from Umran. Hasaranga, forced to play at a bouncer which holds its line, almost nicks another.

RCB 47/6 in 9 overs: Prabhudessai shimmies down, looking to go for the big shot. However, the ball strikes the toe-end of the bat. Jansen does an excellent job near the rope to pull it in. Prabhudessai departs, stumped! Can you believe it? Even Pooran didn't when he went up in appeal. Williamson has been left pleasantly surprised by the replays on the giant screen. Time for the strategic timeout. DK has walked in. Suchith goes up in appeal. The umpire signals a wide but the bowler is convinced there is a feather on it. Pooran, confused at first, appeals anyway. Guess what! The ball did kiss the glove en route to Pooran. DK goes for a duck. Yes, you've read that right.

RCB 45/4 in 8 overs: Umran starts off with a 146kph bouncer. Follows it up with an outswinger. Prabhudessai, on strike, is feeling the heat. The second bouncer of the over earns RCB a no ball and free hit. Shahbaz has lofted the free hit over cover. Four runs.

RCB 37/4 in 7 overs: Suchith starts with a wide. After two dots, Prabhudessai takes a quick single after miscuing a cut. The duo sneak a single after running two, courtesy of a error from Williamson, who was covering up.

RCB 31/4 in 6 overs: Jansen continues to attack the stumps and the batters negotiate the length off the backfoot. A hint of room and Prabhudessai lofts over cover for four.

RCB 25/4 in 5 overs: Natarajan to Maxwell. GONE! Natarajan sends in a slower delivery and Maxwell chips it straight to Williamson at mid-off. A fine grab from the skipper and RCB are in tatters within the PowerPlay. Shahbaz Ahmed in at 6. Natarajan pins Shahbaz to the crease before sending a wide delivery down leg for four. On the money once again as five runs and a wicket come from the over.

RCB 20/3 in 4 overs: Jansen cuts Maxwell in half with a sharp delivery that tails in from length. Maxwell heaves but misses as the whiffs past the top of middle-stump. Jansen switches sides. Room and Maxwell slams it through cover for four.

RCB 11/3 in 3 overs: Bhuvneshwar bowls a tight over, sticking to good lengths. Three runs off the over.


Marco Jansen celebrates Faf du Plessis' wicket.


RCB 8/3 in 2 overs: Jansen to share the new ball. The 21-year-old has cleaned up his compatriot du Plessis! A second slip in place for Kohli and the ploy works perfectly. The ball moves away just a bit and the former India captain is gone for a golden duck yet again. Two wickets in two balls. Maxwell comes to the crease. Jansen loses his sense of line a bit, bowling two consecutive wides. And it is the second slip again which spells doom! Rawat edges now.

RCB 5/0 in 1 over: Bhuvneshwar starts off with a length ball that shapes away from the right-handed du Plessis. The skipper gets off the mark with a boundary through cover. There was ample swing on offer but the South African waits and judges the length well. Suchith with an excellent stop at point, has a shy at the sticks as well but du Plessis is home safe and sound.

du Plessis and Rawat make their way to the middle. Bhuvneshwar to open the bowling.


Kane Williamson:  We are gonna bowl. It is quite humid, perhaps some dew coming in, we'll have to see. The wickets will remain similar throughout. Same team. Washington is recovering well, another few days should help him out. Today would have been a bit tight.

Faf du Plessis: It's our first game here. The pitch has looked nice, consistent. We have to assess and play accordingly. Same team.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Faf du Plessis (c), Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Suyash Prabhudessai, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj


Sunrisers Hyderabad opts to field.


"It is a very high-scoring ground. The surface looks magnificent. Five times the team batting second has won, four times the team batting first has won. It's got a nice covering of grass on it. There is good pace, good bounce. I think we need to see bowlers bowling a little bit shorter and getting the batsmen to hit square of the wicket. It is a really good surface. If you do have to bat first, put 180-plus on the board and you are in the game," reckons Simon Doull.


Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, J Suchith, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.

Bowlers: Josh Hazlewood, Harshal Patel, T Natarajan, Umran Malik

It will be quite a sight watching the red hot Umran Malik steaming in and delivering thunderbolts at the in-form Dinesh Karthik. It will be raw pace versus innovation and skill when Sunrisers Hyderabad meets Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Brabourne Stadium on Saturday.

RCB has 10 points from 7 matches and Sunrisers, 8 from 6.

The surface at the Brabourne Stadium has offered good carry and seam movement for the pacemen. And Sunrisers has the swing of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the speed of Umran, the left-arm control of Marco Jansen, and T. Natarajan’s [another left-armer] brave yorkers.

It remains to be seen if Washington Sundar of parsimonious off-spin and elegant left-handed strokeplay has recovered from a split webbing.

And a batting line-up comprising skipper Kane Williamson, Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran has firepower.

For RCB, Karthik's inspirational form has been unreal. Surfacing in the lower middle order, he has 210 runs at a strike-rate of 205.88 having been dismissed just once in seven innings.

Faf du Plessis, an able skipper, has pulled his weight at the top of the order. Their contributions have enabled RCB make light of Virat Kohli’s ordinary form. Glenn Maxwell remains the X factor.

The RCB attack is a distinct threat with the swing and cut of Mohammed Siraj and Josh Hazlewood, the changes in pace of Harshal Patel and the variety of leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga.

The clash promises to be intriguing.
