    SunRisers Hyderabad are through to the 2nd IPL Qualifier courtesy of an all-round performance by Jason Holder and a Kane Williamson 50.

    Holder’s work began with the ball as he took 3/25 in four overs as Royal Challengers Bangalore were restricted to 131/7 in their 20 overs.

    His effort helped dull the impact of AB de Villiers’ 56.

    SunRisers lost a couple wickets early on but Holder (24 not out from 20 balls) and Williamson (50 not out from 44 balls) got them to their target.

    As things were getting tricky in the final over, with eight runs needed from four balls, the West Indian hit back to back boundaries to seal victory.

    Holder was named Game Changer of the Match and Power Player of the Match while Williamson was awarded Man of the Match.

    SunRisers will next play Delhi Capitals on Sunday 8th November 2020, to determine who plays Mumbai Indians in the final on Tuesday 10th November 2020 (both games start at 10am T&T time).
