The Royal Challengers cruised through their chase in the 2nd match of the Indian Premier Twenty20 tournament. Even with the powerful Chris Gayle sidelined the Bangalore side sent the Sharjan Cricket Stadium fans home early when they caught Delhi’s 145 runs 20 balls remaining to win by 8 wickets. With the rapid data processing power of SAP HANA we can build insight-laden visualizations of the match in SAP Lumira.


Needing to best a rate of 7.25 runs per over, the Royal Challengers hovered around the pace early in their innings before exploding for 57 runs in the final 22 balls they saw. With SAP Lumira a Manhattan chart of the match’s action is only a few simple clicks away. Note the maiden over bowled by RCB’s Varun Aaron in the 5th over.

RCB Captain, Virat Kohli, and Yuvraj Singh combined for 101 no out runs on 67 balls to surpass Delhi’s 145 runs in the 17th over. The Royal Challengers pair struck 13 boundaries including a pivotal streak of four sixes in five balls. Singh also managed to score 10 runs on a single ball with a six followed by a four on a no ball. With SAP Lumira we can plot the run scoring of the pair of unbeaten Bangalore batsmen.
