Table-toppers SunRisers Hyderabad produced yet another spirited bowling effort after skipper Kane Williamson's crucial half-century to beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by five runs and virtually assure themselves a place in the play-offs of the Indian Premier League on Monday night. SunRisers not only register their fifth consecutive win of the tournament today but also defended yet another low total riding on the performance of their excellent bowling unit. (Scorecard)

Earlier, skipper Kane Williamson struck a vital half-century before pace duo of Mohammed Siraj and Tim Southee joined hands to help RCB bundle out SunRisers for a modest 146. Williamson scored 56 off 39 balls while Shakib made 35 but it was Siraj (3/25) and Southee's (3/30) fiery spell that eventually put brakes on SunRisers' charge.

Sent into bat, SunRisers did not have the best of starts as they lost openers Alex Hales (5) and Shikhar Dhawan (13) early. To make matters worse for the hosts, Manish Pandey (5) too didn't last long, handing out a simple catch to skipper Kohli off Yuzvendra Chahal (1/25) in the ninth over.

Thereafter, SunRisers captain Williamson and Shakib stitched 64 runs off just 50 balls for the fourth wicket to keep the hosts afloat. While Shakib played the second fiddle, Williamson showcased his class striking the balls to all parts of the ground without taking any undue risk.

That's all. Another game and another night where Hyderabad managed to defend a total. They stay on the top and are going from strength to strength under their new skipper. On the other hand, Bangalore once again came in with so much of promise but faltered just like every season. Anyway, life has to move on and Indian T20 League cycle will now move to Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Tuesday which will see Rajasthan hosting Punjab. Do join us at 2000 Local (1430 GMT) for all the action. Until then, goodbye and cheers!

Man of the Match goes to Kane Williamson for his brilliant knock of 56 from 39 balls on a tough pitch to bat on. He scored his fifth half century of the season and anchored the innings to make sure he gives something to his bowlers to bowl at.

!

Siddarth Kaul and Bhuvneshwar Kumar through their perfect execution hit proper lengths, took the pace off cunningly, speared in some lethal yorker and defended down the total with relative ease. Hyderabad now have won 5 games on the trot and become the first team to bag 16 points to almost confirm their berth in the playoffs. As far as Bangalore are concerned, this dismal show should give you a perfect picture about how their season was. They are just not able to step up and with this loss they are all but out of the tournament one would feel.

!

Bangalore had their noses in front as they had some luck going their way. But.... An exceptional catch from Yusuf Pathan saw the back of Virat Kohli and then Rashid Khan sent the big fish, AB de Villiers back as well to tilt the game back in their favor. Those two wickets gave Hyderabad supreme control over the game. It seemed like this would lead to a procession but Mandeep Singh and Colin de Grandhomme didn't give up. They fought hard and the Kiwi's blitz in Rashid's last over once again turned the game as the equation came down to 25 from 18 balls.

!

The Orange Army, take a bow! They are truly the 'Masters of Defense'! Yet again they have come out victorious while defending a total and boy, they are making it a habit. Incredible stuff! Riding on Kane Williamson's 50 and his 64-run stand with Shakib, Hyderabad crawled their way to 146 somehow. The wicket was sticky which meant that the hosts wouldn't have been ruled out at all. When the chase began, Bangalore openers got them off to a good start. Patel departed but Kohli came out all guns blazing and started to attack from the word go. They were going pretty well and had the run rate well under control.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Colin de Grandhomme

OUT! HYDERABAD HAVE WON IT BY 5 RUNS! Just how do you hit those over the fence? Just, how? Take a bow, Kumar. An exceptional penultimate over has been followed by an even better last over by one of the best death bowlers going around. A yorker to end everything and it is outside off. De Grandhomme walks across and tries to flick but he only manages to get a thick inside edge onto his stumps.

6 needed from 1 ball. Can Colin de Grandhomme strike a maximum? Here comes Bhuvi running in...

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Mandeep Singh

So they need a biggie from the last ball as there is only a run from this ball. This is outstanding stuff from Bhuvneshwar Kumar. A lot of people will be expecting for him to go for the slower one but he bowls a seam up ball on the pads. Mandeep goes for the flick but it hits the pad and goes towards point. The batsmen run a leg bye.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Colin de Grandhomme

Another single! This is exceptional bowling by Kumar. He bowls a yorker again on middle, Colin whips it down to long on. They should run two but no, they only take on. 7 from 2.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Mandeep Singh

Goes for the smart option as he tries to paddle scoop Bhuvi over short fine leg. However, Bhuvneshwar is right upto the mark as he bowls the slower one outside off. Mandeep has no pace to work with and he finds that fielder. Only a run.
