NEW DELHI: Time for another exciting Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) with renewed zeal, take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
With quite a few changes in both the teams, this is going to be a battle between RCB batsmen and SRH bowlers. The Hyderabad outfit have loaded their arsenal with pacers like Mustafizur Rahman, Ashish Nehra, Trent Boult and Barinder Sran. While the Virat Kohli-led team have taken on board Shane Watson and Stuart Binny to bolster their already star-studded line-up.
The Chinnaswamy pitch generally stays true throughout a match and it is a graveyard for the bowlers, so wayward bowling will be dealt severely and that is where the match can be decided.
OUT! Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets one to sneak in past the legs of Gayle and the ball knocks back his leg stump. Bit of luck with SRH, but that’s what u need when you are playing against RCB.
Ashish Nehra was successful in tying down Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle for most parts of the over but a wide last ball down the leg side was pulled to the fine leg boundary by Kohli to take his team’s score to 5-0.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the toss and will field first.
