SRH Vs RCB, IPL 2015: Held in Hyderabad, this match can not be forgotten by a true Sunrisers fan because of the way it ended. SRH won the toss and chose to bat, scoring 135 in 10 overs for loss of 3 wickets. Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) began chasing the score of 136 runs from 81 balls (Overs were reduced to rain) with Chris Gayle as the opening batsman. The game was in favour of SRH until the game came down to 12 off 4 balls and RCB fearing the same started playing an aggressive game. At 4 Runs to win and 2 balls left, Virat Kohli decided to hit a 4 and thus, opened his bat face to steer two Bhuvi Express Yorkers through a tightly packed offside ring. David Warner, the then Captain of SRH, caught the ball at long off side and SRH fans jumped in joy until seconds later when Warner stepped on the boundary cushions while catching the ball and…. RCB won the game by 6 wickets.
SRH Vs RCB 2016: The Season itself was like an SRH Vs RCB season as the teams faced each other in league matches only to win against the other in their respective home grounds. And then they once again met at the battle ground of M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru to play the final battle of the bats of 2016. While SRH won the title by 8 Runs; this was one epic game played between the legends. As they say what begins well, ends well. This game witnessed the same. After; SRH won the toss and chose to bat first, opening batsman David Warner scored 69 in 38 balls taking the scoreboard to 125/3 before he was bowled by Iqbal Abdulla. This thus setup a base for rest of the team to play calmly. RCB tried their best to win this game, with Chris Gayle scoring 76 runs out in 38 balls; yet SRH’s form and destiny helped them win the game.
