The thrill of IPL 15 is now reaching its peak. The second match in Sunday’s doubleheader will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore from 7:30 pm. Both the teams have performed exceptionally well in the tournament so far. RCB has won 5 matches in 7 matches played so far. Despite the absence of runs from the bats of Anuj Rawat and Virat Kohli, other batsmen have made up for it.
After losing the first two matches, Sunrisers made a strong comeback after winning four matches in a row. Captain Faf du Plessis is seen in excellent form for Bengaluru as well.
RCB vs. SRH: Match Preview
RCB Hopes For Another Great Inning From Dinesh Karthik
Captain Faf and Dinesh Karthik’s bat is constantly on fire. Sachin Tendulkar has said that like DK, no other batsman is hitting the ball in a brilliant way at the moment. In front of Hyderabad’s strong bowling, Bengaluru will expect big innings from Dinesh Karthik’s bat.
Sunrisers’ Performance Has Been Strong
Under the captaincy of Kane Williamson, Hyderabad made perhaps the most memorable comeback in IPL history. The way Sunrisers lost in the first two matches, everyone seemed to be the first to eliminate this team. The team did not have big names in the form of T20 specialists.
In such a situation, batsmen like Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram took the responsibility on their shoulders and started scoring runs continuously. Yorker specialist T Natarajan also returned to the old tone. The manner in which Natarajan bowled Rituraj Gaikwad shows his ability.
