IPL 2017 Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore innings report: Yuvraj Singh's blitzkrieg powers RCB to 207

Indian Premier League, SRHvRCB: The stand out performer was Yuvraj Singh, he gave us a glimpse of how threatening he still is

Indian Premier League 10 could not have got off to a better start, the two finalists of last year locking horns, Sunrisers Hyderabad taking on a depleted Royal Challengers Bangalore. A new-look RCB, led by Shane Watson won the toss and elected to field first, looking at the looking at the history of this ground. David Warner got off to a good start but his innings was cut short by Aniket Choudhary for 14. But that is when Shikhar Dhawan who was out-of favour in the national squad found some form as he went on to get a quickfire 40 off 31 balls before he was held out in the deep. But that is when Yuvraj Singh and Moises Henriques got the innings back on track. Yuvraj Singh looked at his very best, looking to take on the bowlers. But the stand out performer was Yuvraj Singh, he actually rolled back the years and gave us a glimpse of how threatening he still is. He departed soon after reaching the mini milestone for 62 off 27 balls.

The fielding by the RCB unit was sloppy and Virat Kohli was missed big time. His mere presence on the field was missing and Shane Watson who is new to this role was not up to the mark.

Now that they have put the runs in the board, it is very important to be mindful and vary of the RCB batsman, who boast of names like Chris Gayle and the rest. With Chris Gayle there you cannot count out anything.

Total: 207/4
