The Royal Challengers Bangalore defended their total against Sunrisers Hyderabad in match number six of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) season on Wednesday.

Put into bat, the Virat Kohli-led RCB posted 149/8 in 20 overs with Glenn Maxwell scoring 59 from 41 balls.

In reply, SRH skipper David Warner hit a fifty but the side lost their way from there on. They managed 143/9 in the end. Besides, Warner and Manish Pandey (33) not SRH batsmen went on to impress in the game as they lost their second successive match in IPL 2021 season.

RCB went on to score 47/1 in the powerplay overs after Devdutt Padikkal (11) was dismissed early on by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. SRH got back with key wickets as RCB kept losing wickets at regular intervals which stalled their innings. Glenn Maxwell went on to shine for the RCB as he hit a well-made fifty.

SRH were on cruise control but they lost their way as another two points were squandered. We present the records that were scripted in the match.

Maxwell shines for RCB

Australian superstar Glenn Maxwell hit a well-made 59, hitting five fours and three sixes. The Australian superstar racked up his eighth fifty in the IPL.

Maxwell, who played his 84th IPL match, went past the 1,600-run mark in the cash-rich league (1,603).

Kohli two short of Watson

Meanwhile, RCB captain Virat Kohli has amassed 5,944 runs in the IPL. He scored a decent 33-run knock. The Team India skipper now has 564 runs against the Orange Army in the IPL.

He is two short of former cricketer Shane Watson, who has scored 566 runs against SRH in the competition.

Warner one short of 50 fifties

Australian left-handed batsman David Warner went past the 5,300-run mark in the IPL (5,311) at an average of 42,48. He is just the third batsman to get past the mark in the competition.

The Australian batsman registered his 49th career IPL fifty. He has gone on to amass 517 fours and 196 sixes in the tourney.
