Hyderabad: Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore via the Super Over in their Indian Premier League match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday.
The match went into the Super Over after both teams were tied at 130 after the end of Hyderabad's innings. In the Super Over, Hyderabad scored 20 runs, and then restricted Bangalore to 15.

Electing to bat, Royal Challengers Bangalore made 130 for eight against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their second IPL 6 match at Rajiv Gandhi Cricket Stadium.

Chris Gayle was dismissed by debutant Hanuma Vihari. Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat against Sunrisers.

After a relatively easy outing in their Pepsi Indian Premier opener, debutants Sunrisers Hyderabad face a sterner test as they take on a star-studded Royal  Challengers Bangalore. 
Both Sunrisers and RCB are high on confidence going into the match after tasting victories in their tournament openers.
While Hyderabad, who are back in the IPL with a new name, defeated last year's laggards Pune Warriors by 22 runs in a low-scoring match last night, the Bangalore side eked out a two-run  win over mighty Mumbai Indians in their first game.
