While hosting Royal Challengers Bangalore in their own backyard, Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to reach the score of 186/5 courtesy of a century from Heinrich Klaasen. They might have crossed the 190-run mark but Mohammed Siraj bowled a clinical last over and earned a lot of praise for his economical bowling.

However, he made sure that the limelight would not shift away from him missing a simple run-out chance on the second last ball of the innings which made his teammates laugh.

Siraj was bowling the final over of the innings and Glenn Phillips was on the strike. He bowled the delivery on the legs but the batter missed hitting it big. Phillips had no clue where the ball went after it collided with pads and started running for a single. However, after coming down the track a few steps, he realized his mistake and tracked back to the crease.
