Virat Kohli up against David Warner -- it cannot get better than this as two of the most deserving teams in IPL 2016 gave made it to the final and they will lock horns on Sunday at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Both Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are eyeing their maiden IPL title and this encounter promises to be a thrilling one.
Fans have witnessed a number of fierce battles over the last 50 days and they are ready to see one last war between RCB and SRH.
Let us take a look at some of the key battles that one can expect from the RCB vs SRH IPL 2016 final match:
Virat Kohli vs Mustafizur Rahman: RCB skipper has led his side from the front with the bat as his team has registered six wins in a row to reach the IPL 2016 final. Kohli has scored more than 900 runs in this season of the IPL and will look to add a few more runs for his side against SRH in the final. But he will have to go through the cutter master Mustafizur Rahman. The left-arm seam sensation has been absolutely brilliant in IPL 2016 and he is one of the most economical bowlers as well. Rahman will look to unnerve the best in business on Sunday in Bengaluru.
David Warner vs Shane Watson: Just like Kohli, Warner too has led his side from the front as he too has scored 779 runs in IPL 2016. Warner has been in very good form and that has been one of the keys to success for the Sunrisers. If Warner clicks with the bat, they win – that has been the story of most of their wins in IPL 2016. Watson will look to continue with his form with the ball and cause few nervy moments for his fellow Australian during the IPL 2016 final on Sunday. Watson, who has been one of the best bowlers for RCB, will have a task in hand to stop someone like Warner.
AB de Villiers vs Bhuvneshwar Kumar: Mr. 360 degrees showcased his class in the IPL 2016 Qualifier 1 against Gujarat Lions, when he almost single-handedly won RCB the match and powered them into the IPL 2016 final. De Villiers too has been in extremely good form with his bat and the entire cricketing fraternity is aware of the fact about how dangerous he can get in this format of the game. Buneshwar Kumar, who holds the purple cap after picking up 23 wickets in IPL 2016, will have to continue with his form with the ball against RCB. Troubling De Villiers will be a challenging task, but considering the way this Indian seamer has bowled throughout the IPL, he can stop the South African.
Yuvraj Singh vs Yuzvendra Chahal: Yuvraj missed the first half of the tournament because of his ankle injury but after his comeback, he is yet to play a big innings for the Sunrisers. May be tonight is the night as we are all aware of Yuvraj's midas touch and we also know that he is one of the big-match players. But he will be up against Chahal, who has also been extremely good with his leg spins. Chahal's wrong ones are difficult to pick and he will try and cause some trouble to Yuvraj when he comes on to bowl in the final against SRH on Sunday.
