With just six matches left to be played before the beginning of the Play-offs, Royal Challengers Bangalore will face SunRisers Hyderabad on Thursday at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Also, Manish Pandey tried a few funky scoops towards the end and his failure to connect at least three of that meant SRH fell short by 14 runs.

Needing 20 off the final over, Williamson was caught on the boundary by Black Caps teammate Colin de Grandhomme.

However, ahead of play-offs, the RCB will face one of the strongest opponents in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League, SunRisers Hyderabad, a team that has nearly been unbeatable.

Moeen Ali pitched in with 65 runs to help Bangalore reach 6-218, overpowering Kane Williamson's 81 off 42 balls for Hyderabad.

As of before this particular match, the IPL 2018 points table states the position of both the teams as follows.

For the tourists, Rashid once again emerged the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/27, while Siddharth and Sandeep chipped in with two and one wickets, respectively.

BCCI Confirms! Get reedy for Women T-20 team IPL
The Board of Cricket Control in India today announced the squads for the two women's teams IPL Supernovas and IPL Trailblazers . The one-of-its-kind match will feature 26 players including 10 worldwide stars from Australia, England and New Zealand.

But de Villiers was always there to provide the solace for RCB as he launched a counter attack hitting 12 fours and a six in his 39 ball essay. AB de Villiers 25 (14) is steady on the crease but Virat is gone and Moeen Ali 1 (1) comes to the crease.

Rashid Khan double strike bring SRH back in the game. AB de Villiers will now have the responsibility to anchor RCB innings.

Hyderabad's night began poorly when Deepak Hooda dropped a low chance at cover offered by Parthiv Patel off the first ball of the match, from Sandeep Sharma. But with two consecutive victories in a row, especially a 10-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab in their previous match, RCB looks poised in the competition of going through to the Playoffs. The Orange Army batsman as well as bowlers have been in terrific form as skipper Kane Williamson have not tinkered with the playing XI.

Must win for RCB if they want to keep the chants of "Ee Sala Cupu Namde Alive"! The only RCB bowler who can claim to possess an economy rate of under 8 this season is YuzvendraChahal; the leg-spinner has 7 wickets from as many matches and an economy rate of 7.92.

Virat Kohli's RCB has endured a tough season, having lost seven of its 12 matches so far but the recent turnaround has rekindled hopes of a possible shot at the playoffs berth provided some other results go the team's way. Star Sports Network the official broadcast partner of the tournament will telecast the match live.
