Chasing SRH’s 209, RCB fell short by eight runs on Sunday despite Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli’s big hitting early on in the chase. In a game that was tense from start to finish, both camps underwent moments of nerves be it in the middle, on the field or in the dug out.
However, SRH held on in the end on the back of some splendid pace bowling.
The match went down to the wire as Stuart Binny and Sachin Baby kept RCB in the hunt with timely big hits. Needing 18 runs in the last over, RCB were pretty much in the game. But with that ask receding significantly post Bhuvaneshwar Kumar’s superb death bowling, RCB needed 14 runs off the last 2 balls.
As soon Baby reached the non striker’s end, he broke down.
The only sad moment of the match was that teary eyes of Sachin Baby. ? #IPLfinal

Baby Sachin better lift Kohli on his shoulders and make “after all he has lifted the burden” speech
