Sandeep Sharma relished picking the prized scalp of Virat Kohli as Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by five wickets to stay alive in IPL 2020.
Sandeep dismissed Devdutt Padikkal and Kohli as the medium-pacer returned with figures of 4-0-20-2 to help Sunrisers restrict Bangalore for 120/7. In reply, Sunrisers chased down the total in 14.1 overs to eke out an easy victory.
“I have been bowling the knuckle ball, Jonny (Bairstow) has been helping me. It took around three or four months to get it right. Kohli is one of the greatest batsmen, so getting him out is special. Now we are finding the momentum with one game to go. We are excited about that, let’s see what happens,” Sandeep who was adjudged the Man-of-the-Match said.
