IPL 2020: It was a contest that saw both teams slipping after having pulled themselves into strong positions. And it was Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore that came up trumps after Sunrisers Hyderabad imploded from 121/2 to 153-all out in the chase of 164 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. That RCB bowlers were able to bowl something to defend for was largely thanks to a sparkling debut from Devdutt Padikkal and their talisman AB de Villiers. Both scored half-centuries with De Villiers smashing 51 off 30 to push them to a decent total. Their bowling effort was led by legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal who took 3/18 including the wicket of dangerman Jonny Bairstow (61).
