Sidelights:

It’s that time of the IPL when many teams start to fight for the one or two remaining places in the playoffs. Both the team involved in this game had a must win situation before them to grab the last place available in the playoffs. At the end of the day it was SRH who moved forward and not RCB who have some how lost the initiative they have achieved in the UAE leg of the IPL. Although SRH too lost their way a bit after a huge opening partnership but then they managed a final over win and a comfortable one as well.
