Jason Holder and Kane Williamson after winning the Eliminator against Royal Challengers Bangalore

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 6 wickets courtesy an unbeaten 65-run partnership between Jason Holder and Kane Williamson.

After SRH were 67-4, Holder joined Williamson at the end of the 12th over. The duo constructed a well paced innings and sailed it through for their team without any hiccups.

Sunrisers have now won four games in a row and thereby assured their place against the Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2. RCB on the other hand stand eliminated and have lost five games in a row.

Netizens appreciated the overseas batting duo of Williamson and Holder saying that those two are the coolest and calmest heads going around in the game, especially in a pressure situation. The users also appreciated the SRH bowlers as they restricted a powerful RCB batting line-up to a paltry 131 and also gave credit to RCB for fighting hard to bring the game to the last over.

The users also applauded the decision of SRH team management for getting Holder as the replacement player when Mitchell Marsh got injured. As the tall West Indian Test captain has taken 13 wickets in 6 matches he has played and has played two match-defining knocks with the bat as well.

Some of the users and English cricketer Sam Billings reiterated the importance of Williamson as a middle-order batsman in the T20 format especially after his well-composed 50* (44). As in the past, he has not been considered a hot-sell in the shortest format
