Sunrisers disappointed, Mumbai all smilesApril 10, 2013 19:13
RCB had their share of revenge yesterday despite Sunrisers Hyderabad playing very well taking the score over 160. Virat Kohli who had an unflinching performance with his score only a few runs shy of 100 in less than 50 balls ensured that Bangalore won the game. Hyderabad's bowlers were thrashed mercilessly though the team had initially stuttered with the score and the wickets.

On the other hand, Delhi succumbed to a high scoring game where Mumbai had broken the 200 barrier. With a 210 target, Delhi had little chances to turn the game in their favor. Despite great efforts to score, they were over 44 runs short of a victory as they exhausted the balls. Warner and Juneja's scores were no match to the big figures from Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma.

Punjab Warriors India will vie with Royal Challengers Bangalore today at 8 pm. Interesting to note that both the teams lost their games out of their homeground with Sunrisers Hyderabad. Will Royal Challengers Bangalore go ahead with the confidence they garnered yesterday or will the home team have the advantage of knowing their ground well?
