IPL 2019: No doubt, Virat Kohli’s wicket is arguably one of the biggest scalps in world cricket. Khaleel Ahmed’s epic reaction after dismissing Kohli is a testament to what it means. Khaleel was over the moon after getting Kohli for 16 in a 176 chase. The ball was short and wide, there was the width. Kohli wanted to have a piece of it, throwing his bat at it. Only succeeded in feeding an outside edge. Saha grabs it in front of his face and Ahmed didn’t wait for the catch to be taken. Not long back, Kohli had hit Khaleel for a six and a four.

Before the start of the match, RCB had already been knocked out of the tournament and was playing its last game and for SRH it was a chance to win it and seal a playoffs berth.
It was skipper Kane Williamson’s brisk unbeaten half-century propelled Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to a fighting 175/7 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Despite a good start, Hyderabad was at 147/7 in 19 overs before Williamson (70 off 43) clobbered Umesh Yadav for 28 runs in the final six balls to help his side reach a challenging total. For the home side, Washington Sundar starred with the ball and picked up three wickets for 20 runs and Navdeep Saini got two wickets for 39 runs.
Williamson’s knock was laced with five boundaries and four sixes.
Asked to bat, the visitors were off to a flying start as openers Martin Guptill (30 off 23) and Wriddhiman Saha (20 off 11) added 29 runs in the first three overs. The developing partnership, however, didn’t last long as Saini’s slower delivery was misread by Saha and he ended up giving an easy catch to Umesh at mid-on, leaving his side at 46/1.
At the time of filing the copy, RCB was 92/3 in 11 overs. Bangalore need 84 runs in 54 balls.
