Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

AB de Villiers

AB and Kohli are the other obvious MVPs in the side.

The Catch: It was nearly a month ago that Trent Boult's effort in the deep at Chinnaswamy Stadium was all but declared catch of the tournament, but another piece of brilliance from AB de Villiers may have thrown a spanner in the works as the competition reaches it's closing stages.

But Sunrisers captain Williamson took the attack to the opposition and hit a flurry of boundaries off Tim Southee and Ali to keep his team abreast with the required run rate.

RCB have had a mixed season this year where they lost a number of matches consecutively one after the other but have now been able to balance themselves up to an extent.

Skipper Williamson is leading from the front as SRH are now in total control of the run chase. Apart from Openers, Yusuf Pathan (186), Manish Pandey (189) and Shakib-Al-Hasan (166) have also chipped in at crunch situations for SRH. Ales Hales 29 (16) and Shikhar Dhawan 18 (14) are playing carefully and smartly.

Earlier Virat Kohli left scoring just 12 runs but de Villiers was always there to shore up RCB. This over has been expensive for RCB as Rashid Khan strikes twice by knocking the two main men at the crease.

Following US lead, Guatemala moves embassy to Jerusalem
Following in the United States' footsteps, Guatemala opened on Wednesday its Israel embassy in the holy city of Jerusalem. Israel, however, accused Hamas militants of carrying out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests.

And now, we've got an absolute gem from AB de Villiers. In the last game, he came up and shouldered the responsibility. RCB would be praying for the return of AB de Villiers, who did not play the previous game due to fever.

Sandeep Lamichhane and Abhishek Sharma were the two new players and they made their T20 debut with Delhi Daredevils against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Huge blow for RCB. The ball went right under the bat and disturbed the timber.

WICKET! Dream start for SRH Sandeep Sharma gets the first breakthrough. Chahal has been consistent in recent games as well, while Parthiv Patel has looked in good touch too. They did not spare any in the opposition's camp, and were particularly severe on inexperienced Basil Thampi, who replaced Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Royal Challengers Bangalore play the same side.

The South African great was fielding on the boundary during his Royal Challengers Bangalore's clash with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL on Thursday. Virat Kohli & Co. will can claim a playoff spot only if it wins this match and its next, which will take it to 14 points. On the other hand, the Sunrisers are already assured of a top-two finish, which will mean that they will certainly play in the first Qualifier, the victor of which will get a spot in the IPL 2018 final.

The Match will commence at 8:00 PM IST.
