Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and chose to bat first.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Playing XI:

Virat Kohli (C), Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Lokesh Rahul (WK), Shane Watson, Sachin Baby, Stuart Binny, Chris Jordan, Iqbal Abdulla, Sreenath Arvind, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI:

David Warner (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, Ben Cutting, Naman Ojha (WK), Deepak Hooda, Bipul Sharma, Mustafizur Rahman, Barinder Sran, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Mustafizur Rahman was back in the side for SRH and replaced Trent Boult, who had played only one game in this edition of IPL.

Sunrisers Hyderabad started well with Warner and Shikhar Dhawan putting 63 runs for the first wicket. Moises Henriques had a forgetful final with the bat whereas Yuvraj Singh scored 38 runs off 23 balls.

Wickets fell soon after with Sunrisers Hyderabad losing four wickets in quick succession including the crucial wicket of David Warner. Ben Cutting stepped up and played a splendid cameo 39 runs in just 15 balls to propel Sunrisers Hyderabad’s score past the 200-mark.

Yuzvendra Chahal took a wicket while Shane Watson had an off day against SRH. He holds the record for most runs conceded in a single innings with 61 runs in the final.

Chasing 209, Royal Challengers Bangalore was underway with all guns blazing. Chris Gayle was on fire and smashed Sran all over the park in the early overs. Kohli and Gayle put 114 runs for the first wicket with Gayle slashing 76 runs in just 38 balls.

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain continued his supreme form and scored yet another fifty but fell right after to Sran. Bipul Sharma removed AB de Villiers and brought Hyderabad back into the game.

Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers made a wonderful comeback in the latter part of the game. Other than the openers, no other RCB player could get past the 20-run mark. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was excellent in this game as well and won the cup for Sunrisers Hyderabad with a fantastic second spell.

We have a new champion, Sunrisers Hyderabad it is.
