Williamson stars again as Sunrisers march on

Williamson stars again as Sunrisers march on

They made two changes to their playing XI as Manan Vohra came back in place of M Ashwin while Moeen Ali made his IPL debut and Brendon McCullum had to sit out.

Shakib hit off-spinner Moeen Ali for a couple of boundaries in the 10th over to lift the hosts to 61/3 at the halfway stage.

Alex Hales fell early, bowled by a cross-seam delivery by Tim Southee.

Shikhar Dhawan and Williamson batted on for a while before Southee got involved in the fall of the second wicket as well.

US slams China over bid to police websites
In January, China demanded an apology from Delta Air Lines for listing Taiwan and Tibet as countries on its website. Those airlines included American carriers, and the White House response on Saturday was swift, reports Reuters .

Virat Kohli (RCB captain), "That's how this game goes". Bangalore's batting proved to be lazy again.

Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson raged a lone battle with a defiant half-century, despite losing his partners at regular intervals before Shakib joined him to forge a 64-run partnership for the fourth wicket and take the side past the 100-run mark. The jam-packed stadium was witness to some fine bowling, especially by local lad Mohammed Siraj.

Siraj capped off a fiery over with the wicket of Wriddhiman Saha.

The old and the young: Two moments in the match summed up the brilliance of the Sunrisers Hyderabad, one from 19-year-old Rashid Khan and the other from 35-year-old Yusuf Pathan.

Sonam Kapoor's fiancé Anand Ahuja arrives in Mumbai
Sonam, who is from a family of actors, is getting married to Delhi-based businessman Anand, on 8 May in an intimate ceremony. On the other hand, Aishwarya is now working on a project "Fanne Khan" which also stars Sonam's father and actor Anil Kapoor.

Parthiv Patel (20 off 13) got the visitors off to a breezy start. Kohli survived a scare in the very next over when he was dropped by Williamson.

Yusuf Pathan came to his captain's rescue, pulling of a one-handed stunner to dismiss Virat Kohli. RCB's woes compounded in the next over when Afghanistan's wonder spinner Rashid went through the defence of risky AB de Villiers (5) with a wrong'un.

Colin de Grandhomme was key in the chase from thereon, and unfurled two sixes in Rashid Khan's last over before surviving a stumping appeal. RCB have struggled to find the right combination throughout this tournament and with the likes of Kohli, Devillers not in form, Bangalore will definitely have to play out of their skins in Monday's match in order to keep their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs alive.

Kumar finished with figures of 1-27 from his four overs and wrapped things up for the Sunrisers by skittling de Grandhomme with the final ball of the match.
