It is half the league phase. For teams on the bottom of the point chart, it is just the right time to make the move. Now Royal Challengers Bangalore being a team that could not make it through playing seven matches. The team seem to miss the right combination that could bring out the best. Despite of players like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle, all the batting front could do a disrupted series of one-man show downs.

In bowling Yuzvendra Chahal, Tymal Mills and Samuel Badree are struggling to find an impact. The likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan have come with a better attack. But, the team not only seem to lose its bowling end, the batting too is equally sluggish. Virat Kohli, after the record low defeat with an iconic 49-all-out lashed out at the batting order. The question is: what else can be done?

Sunrisers Hyderabad has gained an upper hand lately with several players coming back on tract. Yuvraj Singh, the imperative middle order backbone is back from an injury, Moises Henriques batted strong and through a bolstered form. Kane Williamson has been playing as a dependable batsman on the top lineup. David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan has already played as formidable opening partners. On bowling fronts, Bipul Sharma has a record against AB de Villiers back from the last season.

RCB being on the bottom of the point table is on the right juncture to put up their performance. Captain Virat Kohli said the players know what went wrong and the team is trying to do a lot better. He righty pointed out that the “road from now is with a very few breaks.” He emphasized on the need to put in a better performance. On the other hand, Tom Moody said Bangalore has some of the most destructive players but it could go either way. He certainly does not take for granted the incidence at Eden Garden.
