Sunrisers Hyderabad don’t have as much to worry about. They were done in by an MS Dhoni special in their previous match.
They are currently at 3rd position. Warner’s boys are doing well in the tournament.
Coming to RCB, this was not expected from runner ups. The best batting team on paper failed to score even 50 runs against KKR. Not a single player scored in double digits. They are currently at the last of table. They have just won two matches out of 7.
Last year’s finalists faced off in the season’s opening fixture in Hyderabad. Fifties from Moises Henriques and Yuvraj Singh helped Sunrisers post 207. RCB could not chase that target.
Sunrisers lead 6-4 and have won their last three games against Royal Challengers. That being said, the hosts lead 3-2 at the Chinnaswamy.
Probable 11 –
Royal Challengers Bangalore 1 Virat Kohli (capt), 2 Chris Gayle, 3 AB de Villiers, 4 Mandeep Singh, 5 Kedar Jadhav (wk), 6 Stuart Binny, 7 Pawan Negi, 8 Samuel Badree, 9 Tymal Mills, 10 S Aravind, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal
Sunrisers Hyderabad 1 David Warner (capt), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Moises Henriques, 5 Yuvraj Singh, 6 Naman Ojha (wk), 7 Deepak Hooda, 8 Rashid Khan, 9 Siddarth Kaul/Ashish Nehra, 10 Mohammed Siraj, 11 Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Players to watch for
Virat Kohli looked very angry as well as disappointed in the last match. He is a player who always comes back stronger.
He is captain who always leads from the front. He studies the conditions very accurately and plays according to that. He will surely be a player to watch for.
