Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (Captain), Quinton de Kock (WK), Brendon McCullum, AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Chris Woakes, Washington Sundar, Kulwant Khejroliya, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Manan Vohra, Aniket Choudhary, Navdeep Saini, Murugan Ashwin, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Siraj, Corey Anderson, Parthiv Patel (WK), Aniruddha Joshi, Pavan Deshpande, Tim Southee.
De Villiers (69 from 39 balls; 4×12, 6×1) and Moeen (65 from 34; 4×2, 6×6) put on a 107-run third wicket stand to resurrect RCB's innings which fell apart after the early loss of the opening duo of Parthiv Patel (1) and skipper Virat Kohli (12). Hence it is predicted that Royal Challengers Bangalore will win this match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. AB de Villiers and skipper Kohli have been in menacing form with the bat and they would have to bare their fangs yet again. Williamson was caught out at the end.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have found a new lease of hope in current season of Indian Premier League after consecutive victories.
On one hand, SunRisers Hyderabad is already through to the Play-offs, on the other hand, it is a must win match for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The last match they lost before that? "Victory in their last two games could still see them go through, provided Kolkata lose their last game, as their net run rate has sky rocketed after the thrashing they meted out to Punjab in their last game". So, even if the home team manages to post good run against them, the Bangalore bowlers need to keep a tight grip for a win. Moreover, out of the 10 fifties RCB players have scored, eight have come either from either AB's (4) or Kohli's (4) blade.
