Bangalore defend their first sub-150 total since 2009

Here are a few noteworthy stats from the sixth match of IPL 2021 between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore at Chepauk

Once again in this tournament, teams defending at Chepauk have squeezed the opposing team at the end. Apart from the third match between Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders, where both teams had scored over 170 runs, the three other fixtures have gone down to the wire in Chennai. At one stage, the Game-6 between SRH and RCB was also looking like it would go out of their hand. But, RCB's bowlers managed to pull off and fetch them their second win of the season.

A longing innings


In his first match for Bangalore, Glenn Maxwell broke the streak after 171 balls without a six. In tonight’s game, he overcame another barren patch. The last innings in which Maxwell had scored a 50+ was in May 2016 against Kolkata. Since then, he had played 40 innings without one prior to tonight’s 59 off 41. This is the fourth-longest streak for a batsman without an IPL fifty. Yusuf Pathan’s streak of 49 is the longest.

David Warner’s love towards Bangalore


In T20s (including the IPL and now-defunct Champions League) against the Bangalore franchise, Warner has scored 877 runs which is higher than any other batsmen. He went past MS Dhoni’s tally of 834. Warner has been best in terms of average and scoring 50+. He has nine 50+ scores against them, which is the most for a batsman in IPL. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore rare feat

It is a universal fact that the Bangalore based franchise aren’t famously known for their bowling. A total of 149 being the fourth-best total defended in their IPL career is a proof of it. In fact, the last time they defended a sub-150 total dates back to 2009. They had defended 145 against Punjab Kings at Kingsmead. Out of the three lowest scores defended prior to tonight, two had come in 2009. Hence, the only time they had defended a sub-150 total in India was in 2008 at the same venue against Chennai, which is also their lowest total defended ever (126/8).

Collapsing like a house of cards in a chase


In recent times, snatching defeat from jaws of victory has become habitual for Hyderabad. In the 2020 IPL season, against the same opposition, they had lost eight wickets for 32 runs in the last five overs. Later on, against Punjab Kings, they had lost seven wickets for 17 runs during the death overs in a chase. In the last two years, they have lost five or more wickets on five occasions and lost their way through. In tonight’s match, they lost seven wickets for 35 runs in the last five overs, which is their fourth-worst performance in this phase in a chase.

Hyderabad’s win-less outings


Chepauk hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Hyderabad in IPL. They have played five matches and lost all five. No team has suffered this fate in IPL after playing five or more over matches at a venue. They have lost three matches against Chennai, one to Kolkata and one to Bangalore. They have three more matches at this venue in this edition and they would soon want to rectify their record.

Most catches taken in a match

In tonight’s match, 17 wickets fell, eight from Bangalore and nine from Hyderabad. Out of those 17, 16 of them were caught. This is the most number of dismissals through catches in an IPL match. In addition, there were 10 different fielders involved in taking a catch (caught behind and caught & bowled excluded). This is also the most number of different fielders involved in an IPL match to take catches.
