An interesting encounter is awaiting us as Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Royal Challengers Banglore. The former lost their first game while the later is pumped up after prevailing the defending champions in the thriller.
Sunrisers Hyderabad did not have had an ideal start as they fell short chasing 180+ in their opening side. the concern fornthe side remains unchanged, the lack of lower order options. The exclusion of Kane Williamson in the first game baffled the cricket fraternity as the Kiwi skipper has evidently rescued team several times before. The coach later stated that the Kiwi skipper is not completely fit and will be available soon. Jason Holder has recently became available for the selection and might replace Nabi in the lower order. Bowling is the strength of the orange army and they would like to utilize it to mark their first win.
Probable XI: David Warner (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Manish Pandey, Jonny Bairstow, Jason Holder/Mohammad Nabi, Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem/Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan

RCB faced a debacle last season despite starting off so well in the first half of IPL. They won the first game against MI and would like to perpetuate this rhtym to proceed strongly.
