Chasing 147, Royal Challengers Bangalore seemed to have the edge when Colin de Grandhomme's sixes off Rashid Khan brought the equation down to 25 from the final three overs. But Sunrisers Hyderabad conceded only 20 (six each in the 18th and 20th overs from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and seven in the 19th from Siddarth Kaul) for their fourth straight successful defence of a target this season. There was plenty of praise on Twitter for another stunning bowling effort.

A huge shout out to the think tank that sat down and hand picked this champion bowling line up @VVSLaxman281 @TomMoodyCricket and Murali. They are reaping the benefits as a result of that now. 5 wins in a row for the @SunRisers #SRHvRCB— Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) May 7, 2018
