David Warner & Johnny Bairstow comes to crease.

50 up after 5 overs

Both men are showing great intent here.

1,6,4 and Bairstow gets 50!

100 up after 9.4

Whoahhh both of them are dealing in sixes only!

11 overs- 117/0

Fifty for Warner

42nd fifty of David Warner. It’s 134/0 after 12.1 overs

And Hundred for Bairstow! Gee what a player he’s.

Runs back for the second and look how happy he’s, jumps and fists gloves with Warner. 1st IPL hundred of Johnny Bairstow. It’s 166/0 after 15.1 overs

There’s a wicket nonetheless!

Chahal flights the ball Bairstow fails to gets proper connection and Umesh Yadav takes a stunner catch. Bairstow gone for 114. Woww a standing applaud from the team as well as the crowd he’s getting. Vijay Shankar comes in at 3. It’s 185/1

Confusion leads to Shankar’s departure

Warner hits ball off Umesh Yadav’s delivery which lands between mid-wicket and deep mid-wicket. And Shankar wants the second as well and he’s short in the crease. Shankar goes for 9. Yusuf Pathan comes in. It’s 202/2

Century for warner!

Goodness gracious from where do he can gets the energy to celebrate like that! What an innings 100 off just 54 balls! Take a bow David Warner!!

Two individual 100s in the same inngs in T20-cricket:

K O’Brein/ H Marshall Gloucestershire v Middlesex, 2011

V Kohli/ AB de Villiers RCB v GL, 2016

A Hales/ R Rossouw R Riders v C Vikings, 2019

D Warner/ J Bairstow SRH v RCB, 2019

With the centuries from Johnny Bairstow and David Warner SRH finishes with 231/2


RCB needs 232 to win

It has been done twice before but to get there they have to go a long long way.

Parthiv Patel & Shimron Hetmyer comes to crease

Full-toss and Parthiv departs

Mohammed Nabi bowls a full toss delivery, Parthiv tries to go big but finds Manish Pandey at mid-wicket. Parthiv goes for 11. Skipper Virat Kohli comes in at 3. It’s 13/1

Nabi foxes Hetmyer!

Hetmyer tries to come down the track and misses the ball completely and Bairstow whips out the bails in a flash. Hetmyer gone for 9. A B De Villiers comes in. It’s 20/2

And Navi gets triplets

Bowls a straight arm ball, ABD tries to go over the mid-on and completely misses the ball and stump goes for the roll. ABD goes for 1. Moen Ali comes in. It’s 22/3

Now Virat goes!

That would be definitely vivo perfect catch of the match! David Warner takes a spectacular catch off Sandeep Sharma’s delivery. Virat goes for 3. Shivam Dube comes in. It’s 30/4

Will RCB reach 100? I don’t think so. They’re heavily dependent on the Virat & ABD. Once they are gone, game completely goes out of their hands.

RCB’s has found out funny ways to get out i guess!

Yes, No, yes, no and confusion leads to Moeen Ali’s departure. He goes for 2. Colin De Grandhomme comes in. It’s 30/5 now.

Nabi gets a 4-fer

There was a fielder right there at mid-on for the shot Dube tried. He goes for 5. Orange army are up on their feet. It’s 35/6

6 and 50 up for RCB

CDG is playing well here. But no-one is interested in supporting him. I feel sad for him as well as for the RCB.

Slow ball does the trick again!

Sandeep was called again and he does what he’s best known for. Bowls a knuckleball and PR Barman goes for 19. It’s 86/7

Oh god! RCB tumbles down further more!

instead of looking at the partner, Umesh starts for running second which was never there, stands nowhere near the crease and Rashid whips off the bails. He goes for 15. It’s 103/8

Absolute Circus around the park!

Shankar bowls a low full toss which Siraj hits straight to Bhuvi and he starts running, Bhuvi throws at the non-strikers end where CDG is short on the crease. Meanwhile Shankar after whipping out bails, throws at the other end where Siraj is nowhere near in the screen. CDG goes for 37. It’s 108/9

Sandeep gets 3rd one!

And with that SRH wins by 118 runs
