It is not everyday you see Royal Challengers Bangalore get folded up for 49 chasing 131. They are prone to it, but such insult not known in recent times. It was like China getting allout for 28 runs on the same day. Today, is a new day but will they be able to shrug off the burden of losing and come out like champions which they can. Sunrisers Hyderabad have been a consistent and a formidable unit apart from a few hiccups on their way. For Sunrisers as well their biggest test would be to win away from home.
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.
David Warner would be expected to put up a great show, and Rashid Khan with the ball, has been a treat to watch.
Sunrisers Hyderabad may give Ashish Nehra a start and a shot with the new ball – he is the only bowler in the IPL to dismiss Virat Kohli more than four times (six).
