IPL 2021: SRH collapse in low scoring thriller against RCB

After losing Wriddhiman Saha early in mere chase of 150 on a slowish track, SRH were cruising towards the target till 13th over with the help of a good partnership between captain David Warner and Manish Pandey , the former though looked a bit troubled at crease scoring below the strike rate of 100 but the skipper was in full flow reaching his 49th fifty in the process striking over 140 on tricky wicket.

SRH were looking all set to chase down the small target well before 20th over, the things went south for them pretty quickly once they lost Warner to Jamieson trying to hit a ball over mid wicket. It was a total plot change as SRH kept loosing wickets in very quick succession since then.
In the 17th over of the innings they lost 3 wickets trying to accelerate both the set batsman Bairstow  and Pandey fell in the successive deliveries to Shahbaz Ahmed in attempt to slog sweep the ball against the spin. Abdul Samad followed their teammates to the dressing room in the last ball of the same over in a disappointingly similar manner playing across the line to a away turning ball on a sluggish wicket.

Vijay Shankar fell to a slower delivery by Harshal Patel in the very next over playing across the line and soon followed by Jason Holder on third delivery of 19th over to Mohammad Siraj.

Rashid Khan played a cameo in the end to keep the hopes alive but got run out in 4th ball of the 20th over ,  Harshal Patel picked up Shahbaz Nadeem on the penultimate delivery of the match to seal the victory for RCB by 6 runs.

SRH scored just 29 runs and lost 7 wickets in the final four overs of the match.
This is one of the worst collapses for SRH since 2019.
