SRH vs RCB Preview
Three matches ended in favour of teams chasing. That brings in a doubt in minds of captain who wins the toss, irrespective of the venues. Anyways, today we would see a clash of another heavyweights - Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore. Watch live streaming on HotStar and live telecast on Sony Network - Sony Six, Sony ESPN and Sony Max.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are easily the most star studded and fancied teams in the IPL history. With the likes of Gayle or AB de Villiers, fans had always expected wonders from this team. This team has always succeeded in providing entertainment to the crowd, but they have failed to win the IPL trophy even once. They finished twice as runners ups. Hopefully this year they emerge as winners.
Sunrisers Hyderabad came into picture after Deccan Chargers was dissolved. Even this team has had their share of good and bad luck. If one has to say something about this team so far, it would be batting heavy but weak at bowling side. We have observed big scores from this site in the past, but somehow the bowlers have failed to defend the totals.
It’s been even between the two teams over the past 3 seasons. Let’s tip the scales over to our side. #OrangeArmy pic.twitter.com/pDIwI3cKbI— SunRisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers) April 12, 2016
RCB has always started off the proceedings in style. Virat Kohli's presence brings in so much of optimism. And when he partners with the likes of AB de Villiers or Chris Gayle, the batting line up looks unbeatable. This year they would also enjoy the services of Shane Watson. The shot in their arm would be absence of Mitchell Starc due to injury.
SRH has roped in two good bowlers, Ashish Nehra and Mustafizur Rahman. They have proved themselves as effective bowlers in the T20 format. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Karn Sharma would provide a good support to the lead bowlers. Opening batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner couldn't score much in the recently concluded T20 world cup. And this remains a concern for them. But a tweet from SRH official twitter handle has something to cheer about for these two openers
