Hyderabad, March 31, Sunday at 04:00 PM IST
The first clash of Sunday’s doubleheader will witness Sunrisers Hyderabad reloading at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium to host Royal Challengers Bangalore in the evening. Sunrisers Hyderabad clinched 5 wickets win over Rajasthan Royals at the same venue yesterday to open their account. Royal Challengers Banglore on the opposite haven’t managed a win in two encounters so far and will be looking to open their account tomorrow. The clash will begin at 04:00 PM IST in the evening.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have been at the receiving end in both their encounters. First, they failed to read the turner at M Chidambaram which saw them folding up at mere 70 against Chennai Super Kings in the opener while in the second encounter at M Chinnaswamy RCB fell short by 6 runs while chasing a 200 runs total set by Mumbai Indians, courtesy the umpiring howler.
Can RCB thrash SRH in front of their home crowd to open their account or will they succumb to a third win on the trot? It will be interesting to watch out.
Sunrisers Hyderabad cinched 5 wickets win over Rajasthan Royals last night which saw brilliant knocks from Sanju Samson (102 not out) and David Warner (69 of 37 balls). Boosted with Sanju Samson’s unbeaten ton and Ajinkya Rahane’s fifty, Rajasthan Royals posted a giant total of 198-2. In reply, riding on Dawid Warner’s blistering 69 of 37 and Johnny Bairstow’s (45 of 28) Sunrisers chased down the target in 19th overs which saw a little cameo of Rashid Khan (15* of 8 including a four and winning six off Jofra Archer) at the end.
Total – 12
Like the previous game yesterday between SRH and RR, another high-scoring encounter can be expected. The Rajiv International Stadium in Hyderabad is a true wicket that offers help to both– batsmen as well as bowlers. It is a flat wicket and ball comes easily on the bat however, it becomes a bit slow as the game wears on and brings spinners into the play.
