Last year's runners-up Sunrisers Hyderabad register back-to-back wins by thrashing visiting Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 118 runs in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Sunday.

So what happened in Hyderabad?

RCB captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field. That's not a crime, electing to field considering his liking for chasing. But asking SRH to bat first on a batting track certainly was. David Warner, who started the season with back-to-back fifties, stitched yet another 100-run opening stand, for a record third time. In fact, the SRH duo posted the highest opening stand in the history of IPL, with both of them hitting centuries. Another rarity not only in the IPL but also in T20 cricket. The most economical spell by an RCB bowler was Mohammed Siraj, who leaked 38 runs without success. Debutant Prayas Barman started well, but the teenager ended up conceding 56 runs from four overs. Only successful bowler was Yuzvendra Chahal, and there was a run out too. Meaning, RCB needed 232 runs for their first win of the season.

But it was a very very long shot. Then, Mohammad Nabi rocked the fame RCB top-order. He four wickets for 11 runs. That's some effort from the Afghan. That delivery which clean bowled AB de Villiers was a beauty. By the 8th over, RCB were 35/6. RCB tail however made showed grit, but 232 is not a small target. There was nothing much to do and talk about, except the fact Hyderabad toyed that their visitors. And it can be seen in the manner how Rashid Khan played with Umesh Yadav while running the pacer out. Colin de Grandhomme was the top scorer with 37 off 32, while Kolhi and de Villiers made three and one respectively. Sandeep Sharma, who has a habit of taking Kohli's wicket, once again proved the perfect nemesis for the world's best batsman. It was the sixth time that Sandeep has dismissed Kohli. Ishant Sharma is the only other bowler to have dismissed Kohli that many times.

Bairstow was the man of the match. He 114 off 56 balls with the help of 12 fours and seven sixes. Not many will overshadow Warner in such imperious form.

What next?

RCB visit Jaipur to play Rajasthan, their fourth match Tuesday, while SRH travel to Delhi on Thursday.
