Second encounter in 2020:
Sandeep Sharma was the star with the ball for SRH in their five-wicket win over RCB in Sharjah. Sharma saw the back of Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli in the power-play and pegged the opposition on the back-foot. RCB could not recover and disciplined bowling from all the SRH bowlers meant that the opposition were restricted to a paltry 120 for 7 in their allotted 20 overs. SRH chased down the target with 5 wickets in hand and more than 5 overs to spare.
First encounter in 2020:
Yuzvendra Chahal’s brilliant leg-spin bowling led RCB’s fightback and derailed what looked like an easy SRH chase in Dubai. Set a target of 164, SRH had moved to 89 for 1 in the 12th over before Chahal saw the back of Manish Pandey. He then cleaned up Johnny Bairstow in the 16th over before going through the defences of Vijay Shankar off the first delivery he faced in the innings. SRH collapsed under pressure and were bowled out for 153 handing RCB a 10-run victory.
