That is it from this game! Bangalore have risen from the ashes and did the unthinkable. Their 2021 season is off to a perfect start as they go top of the table making it 2 wins out of 2. Contrasting start to Hyderabad, they have lost both their opening games and this loss will sting them for a while. The action in the League continues on Thursday, 15th April as two young and new skippers go head-to-head. Sanju Samson's Rajasthan will take on Rishabh Pant's Delhi. That promises to be a fire-cracker of a game too. That match begins at 1930 local (1400 GMT). Make sure you join us for that one. Till then, goodbye and take care!

For his brilliant batting display in a tough batting pitch, Glenn Maxwell is named the Player of the Match. Maxwell says that it is a new franchise for him and they have given him a specific role. Tells having AB de Villiers behind gives him a bit more freedom and adds his role is very similar to the one he plays for Australia. On what he chats with Kohli out in the middle, Maxwell says that they just share their experience. Tells it was not an easy wicket. Shares Kohli is good at keeping him on task. Maxwell says having the guys behind him gives him the luxury and tells that earlier he was sent too deep and had to hit from ball one. Maxwell jokes and says he is hoping he won't get to bowl and Sundar has been doing a great job. Maxwell further adds that he will be happier if he contributes more with the bat.

Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli, says that he is more proud than exhausted. Kohli feels the wicket here will get more challenging. Tells one is never out of the game on such a pitch. He believes they have more bowling options and that helped. Kohli says he told the guys that if they have struggled to get to 149, he says it was not going to be easy. Adds he believed they could defend 150 and credits the bowler's execution. Kohli tells that while batting when the ball got old it got difficult. Adds Maxwell's innings was the difference. Kohli says they are not getting over-excited with the win but they are backing the players and are taking one game at a time. Tells the focus is to enjoy every game.

Earlier in the evening, Bangalore were put into bat. On a track that was not easy to bat on, Bangalore started off well but crumbled in the middle. Maxwell's 59 though proved to be the difference-maker as the Big Show's knock took them to a match-winning total of 149! Hyderabad bowled very well but 39 runs in the final 3 overs proved to be too costly as that ended being the major difference between the sides.

The man whose triple wicket over changed the tide of the game, Shahbaz Ahmed is up for a chat too. Shahbaz Ahmed says that he was happy with his performance. Adds that AB de Villiers had called for Bairstow's catch so he did not go for that. Mentions that the other catch which he took was not easy.

Bangalore's star in the final over, Harshal Patel is caught for a chat. He says that he was disappointed with the no balls he bowled. Adds that the captain had faith in him to deliver and he delivered under pressure. Mentions that the wickets fall in the last 5 overs and the game turns there.

David Warner, the Hyderabad skipper, says that he is disappointed with the result. Adds that the bowlers did well to restrict Bangalore. Mentions that the batsmen should have applied better to chase this total. Further says that middle order should have played better. Warner also says that they will look to improve and play better in their next game.

A fantastic bowling display from Bangalore. A side that is always put under the knife for their bowling, it is their bowlers who have ensured that Kohli's side is off to a perfect start. Siraj and Harshal Patel were outstanding as the pair gave away just 50 runs in their 4 overs and finishing with 2 wickets each. Jamieson was expensive but got the big wicket of Warner. The hero, the star, the man whose over turned the game was young Shahbaz Ahmed. His triple wicket shifted the momentum of the game and started the comeback which led to a memorable win.

Chasing a moderate total of 150, Hyderabad lost Saha early. Warner and Manish Pandey though were cruising the chase. The pair added 83-runs with the skipper scoring a brilliant 54. From there the collapse began. Just like Kolkata, Hyderabad capitulated too and lost wickets like nine-pins. Bairstow, Manish Pandey and Samad all fell in one over and the 2016 champions were unable to get 35 in the final 4 overs.

The slow track of Chennai has provided a thriller yet again. Yesterday it was Mumbai who came back from the dead and today it is Bangalore who have done the same. Is this the year, is this finally the year Bangalore lift the cup? They might just do it. They are off to a perfect start! Hyderabad did not learn from Kolkata's mistake from last night and have gone on to repeat something similarly diabolical.
