SRH vs RCB Match Preview: IPL 2017
The 10th edition of the Indian Premier League kicks off on the 5th of April when the defending champions, The Sunrisers Hyderabad take on The Royal Challengers Bangalore at Hyderabad. The last meeting saw the Orange army get the better of the Virat Kohli-led side. David Warner will be leading the Hyderabad side, while his counterpart has been ruled out for at least a couple of weeks with a shoulder injury which he sustained in the recently concluded test series against Australia.
KL Rahul, one of the stars of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy will miss the tournament as he’ll be undergoing a shoulder surgery. AB De Villiers is also likely to miss the tournament’s opener due to an ongoing back problem. With the availability of their top batsmen being uncertain and with a mediocre bowling attack, the chances of stamping an authority at the start of the tournament have lessened for the Royal Challengers.
Shane Watson will be leading the side in the absence of Kohli and De Villiers. The two-time player of the tournament will be wanting his side to display their A-game against a formidable looking Sunrisers. Mandeep Singh and Kedhar Jadhav can feed off this entire injury fiasco and prove their quality. Jadhav whose abilities with both ball and bat were clearly visible in the ODIs against England can prove to be an integral force in the Royal Challengers unit. Travis head might get the nod in the first game and he’ll most likely be the man behind the stumps.
The Sunrisers, on the other hand, have only strengthened their squad with the inclusion of Chris Jordan and Rashid Khan. The team was brilliantly led by Warner in the previous edition and will want to replicate last year’s performances. Warner scored 848 runs at 60.57 with a strike rate of 151.42. But are the Sunrisers too dependent on Warner with the bat? The likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh are efficient enough to win games single-handedly and the risers would like the two heavy hitters to strike gold this season, especially in the very first game. The high spirited Deepak Hooda and the elegant Vijay Shankar also add quality to the batting line up.
The bowling unit will be lead by the old war horse Ashish Nehra and the dexterous Bhuvaneshwar Kumar will be a tough cookie to crack. The team looks nicely balanced and are more likely to start their campaign with a victory.
Players To Watch Out For Sun Risers Vs Royal Challengers:
TYMAL MILLS: Ever since he’s attracted a massive 12 crore bid, Mills has captured a lot of acute attention. The Sussex pacer is known to hit the 90mph mark with relative ease and with consistency. A well disguised slower delivery and an accurate toe crusher if executed properly against the strike force of Warner, Dhawan and Yuvraj, the challengers will not have a lot to chase. With an exceptional ability to vary his pace and fire thunderbolts directed towards the bottom of the stumps, Mills will be man to watch out for.
RASHID KHAN: 9 wickets in 3 games at 6.11 and an economy rate of 5.50 in the recently concluded T20I series against Ireland speaks volumes about the ability of this talented teenager. Afghanistan have been on a 11 match unbeaten streak in the shortest format of the game and Rashid Khan has played a pivotal part in the team’s success. A crafty googly, brilliant control over his leg spinners and an accurate slider, this leggie from Afghanistan has all the traits of a match winner.
