Table toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 39th match of IPL 2018 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have been definitely unstoppable in this season as they have won last four out of four matches they played. Three out of them were won the bank of their bowlers that too even without Bhuvneshwar Kumar. But their recent victory came against the Delhi Daredevils where SRH batsmen helped them win.
Bangalore on the other hand, have a lot of issues to address as they have not consistently played either of Brendon McCullum or Quinton de Kock. Mandeep also has not been able to convert his starts. Though, Parthiv Patel showed in the last match that he is a good option and it has been seen that he gives his team good starts in IPL.
In bowling as well, Umesh Yadav has been their only lone warrior. He hasn’t got consistent company from any bowler as their another important bowler Yuzvendra Chahal have blown hot and cold in this season. Tim Southee has done well in quite some matches but has not performed up to his name.
Both teams are unexpected to make any changes to their playing XI and today’s match will be interesting to witness as these both teams have indulged in some nail biting matches. Also, not much runs will be scored as Hyderabad’s pitch is sticky which doesn’t offer much runs to be scored.
