Today’s evening is going to witness an exciting rivalry between the Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Banglore(RCB) vs David Warner led Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH). RCB has had an impressive start to the tournament as they defeated MI in their first match. On the other hand, SRH had to taste defeat against the KKR in their first match of the tournament. With the correct intent, heat and competitiveness, both the team will today play against each other for a 2 pointer victory.
Devdutt Padikkal will comeback today!
While it is clear that RCB would want to continue with most of their players, yet there will be a comeback for Debdutt Paddikal, after serving his quarantine period. The RCB and company is all set to welcome Padikkal as an opener with Virat Kohli. Indicating his return, the skipper in the last match gave a hint.
Expected overseas player in RCB’s playing XI
Apart from Padikkal, Kohli will most likely go with the same squad, although there is a chance of Daniel Christian’s replacement. As usual, AB De Villiers will be the prime overseas player for RCB. His match-winning skills is a significant asset for the team.
Apart from AB, Glenn Maxwell too will enjoy his position, as his hitting abilities is a remarkable asset for RCB. Not only that, Maxwell can also spill his magic with the ball and an impressive fielding skill that he possesses.
The IPL debutant Kyle Jamieson is also likely to play tonight. Alongwith him, Daniel Sams might replace Dan Christian as an all-rounder in the squad. Kane Richardson also has a fair chance to get a game, since his arrival will strengthen RCB’s bowling attack.
Expected overseas player in SRH’s playing XI
From the SRH’s side, two overseas names are common. David Warner will surely play as he will lead the team throughout the tournament. His batting skills has been an important reason for the franchise’s success in the past. SRH will expect Warner to come back on form soon.
Apart from Warner, Jonny Bairstow has a fair chance of being in the playing XI. In the match against KKR, he slammed a handsome knock of 55 runs in just 40 deliveries. His presence in today’s game has been highly anticipated. The expectations from him are quiet and the franchise will look forward to his game.
Another key overseas player will the Rashid Khan, who is an integral part of SRH’s side. His attacking spin bowling will be a big asset in today’s game. Let’s hope to see him spell some magic tonight!
Mohammad Nabi is likely to get a spot too. His all round abilities will surely sail over SRH to success vs RCB. The fans are eagerly waiting for his performance tonight.
