IPL 2013 Video Highlights: SRH vs RCB - Hyderabad vs Bangalore
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Video Highlights of Indian Premier League 2013, 7th T20 Match played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad on 7th April 2013. Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bangalore via a Super Over on Sunday night to go top of IPL table this year.
In the Super Over, Cameron White and Thisara Perera took 20 runs off Vinay Kumar with White hitting two sixes. In reply, Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli could get only 15 off Dale Steyn to trigger wild celebrations in the arena.
It was another low-scoring game at this ground despite the two captains, Kumar Sangakkara and Virat Kohli, feeling that the wicket was batsman-friendly. It didn't turn out that way as RCB could only get 130/8 after batting first.
Chasing the modest target, the hosts made heavy weather of the task and also finished at 130, losing seven wickets. Under-19 World Cup-winning team member Hanuma Vihari almost took them past the post but could only run one bye when the team needed two off the last ball of the final over, bowled by Vinay Kumar.
Sangakkara's decision to bat lower down at No. 5, seemed to be a masterstroke as he wanted to be around when Muttiah Muralitharan came into bowl. But he could score just 16 before Jaydev Unadkat got him out caught behind to turn the game.
Unadkat also dismissed the hard-hitting Thisara Perera for 8 with a wonderful slower delivery. Vihari, who had earlier dismissed Chris Gayle caught behind for 1 off his first delivery in the tournament, scored a heroic unbeaten 44 in 46 balls.
