Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their previous match which was played at Hyderabad. They will meet again on Tuesday, and this time at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengalore. RCB will be keen to take revenge on SRH.
Royal Challengers Bangalore lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in a thriller on Sunday. The match was tied, but the SRH eventually romped home with two more points, winning the super over.
Wounded RCB will be keen to take revenge on SRH. They defeated Mumbai Indians by two runs in their first IPL match at home. They will be looking forward to repeat a similar performance at home.
On the other hand, SRH is on top of the score table, winning both the matches they have played this season. They will take the field on Tuesday with all the confidence from consecutive wins and will be keen to keep the momentum.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Chris Gayle was out for one run in the last match after scoring an unbeaten 92 in the first match. The team will expect him to give a good start on Tuesday. Virat Kohli, and Moises Henriques made good contribution in the last match but Tillakaratne Dilshan's form is a worry.
The team's confidence will boosted by the arrival of South African cricketer AB de Villiers. Indian veteran bowler Zaheer Khan has also been declared fit to play.
Jaydev Unadkat and Moises Henriques took two wickets apiece in the last match, while Vinay Kumar and Muttiah Muralidaran took one wicket each. Their fielding has been so far so good.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Hanuma Vihari scored a crucial 44 (not out) in the previous match to help his team equal the score of the opponent. Kumar Sangakkara, Akshath Reddy, Cameron White and other batsmen need to pull up their socks and contribute in the home away match against RCB.
Ishant Sharma took three wickets in the previous while Dale Steyn delivered a wonderful spell in the super over to help the team win. Amit Mishra's one wicket for 15 runs from four overs was commendable, and Thisara Perera was impressive too. These bowlers should take early wickets on Tuesday to push RCB to the back foot.
SRH are in good form but RCB are a balanced team. The arrival of AB de Villiers and Zaheer Khan will strengthen the team. RCB are favourite to win the match which will be played in Bangalore.
