Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 67 runs While SRH skipper Kane Williamson said that his side needs to come up with ways to reverse pressure and turn things around.
Faf du Plessis played an unbeaten knock of 73 runs and Wanindu Hasaranga took five wickets that helped Royal Challengers Bangalore to beat the RCB by 67 runs at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.
“It’s been quite a challenge for us, we need to come up with ways to reverse that pressure and turn around. These have been par totals, and the batting has been quality, but as a unit, there are areas to touch on. I think earlier in the competition when there was assistance with the new ball we were certainly very threatening, so we need to go back to the drawing board as we have a little gap between the next game. We will have to get a bit more creative and come up with ways to change the momentum,”said Williamson in a post-match presentation.
“For us, it’s about looking to stay calm. We do need to improve but don’t need to overthink. The margins are always fine, but we need to show signs of improvement. We didn’t get off to a great start, they had a very good total on that surface. It was holding a bit, and it was turning a bit, the wicket. We needed to build some partnerships and take the game deep to maximize the opportunities on this Wankhede ground, but we were unable to do that,”he added.
While chasing a target of 193 runs, Sunrisers Hyderabad got off to the worst possible start as skipper Kane Williamson was dismissed for a diamond duck as he was run out by Shahbaz Ahmad.
Apart from Hasaranga who took a fifer, Josh Hazlewood took two wickets while Glenn Maxwell and Harshal Patel settled for one each, which dismissed Sunrisers Hyderabad at 125.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will play their next clash against Kolkata Knight Riders at MCA Stadium, Pune on May 14.
