A team achieving good things in recent IPL seasons vs a side still looking to overcome more disappointment. SRH take on RCB in Sunday’s first match, the 11th game of IPL 2019.

Sunrisers Hyderabad picked up their first win, and are straight back in action less than 48 hours later. David Warner was once again outstanding, forming a significant part of SRH’s excellent top order. With RCB again having their on-and-off moments with the ball, SRH’s batsmen have a good chance to follow up their huge chase with another big effort. Will last year’s finalists make it two in a row?

Royal Challengers Bangalore were on the wrong end of the second controversy in IPL 2019. They were robbed of a free-hit opportunity to win the game against MI. However, old habits did creep in, which included poor death bowling and inability to finish the game. Now, they need to win to ensure they don’t fall too far behind the pack early on in the season. Can they overcome IPL 2018’s finalists in their own backyard?

Key to an SRH win

What a return to IPL cricket it has been for David Warner. He has hit two half centuries in as many games this season, and is looking a dangerous proposition at the top. With Umesh Yadav a fine powerplay option for RCB, how well David Warner and Jonny Bairstow go will be key. They have put 118 and 110 for the first wicket in IPL 2019, and if they make a strong start again, it means danger for an RCB side that needs to find a victory. Can the openers set a strong platform for the likes of Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar and Yusuf Pathan to play with freedom?

Also, despite the victory against RR, SRH’s bowlers felt the wrath of Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson. This was except for Rashid Khan, who was outstanding in his four overs. However, what support will he get this time? Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s difficult start to IPL 2019 continued with a mighty expensive spell vs RR. Sandeep Sharma less so, but still expensive. Same with Shahbaz Nadeem. With Siddarth Kaul again showcasing his ability in IPL, can the much talked about SRH attack combine for a good showing against the star-studded RCB batting lineup?

Key to an RCB win

There were positives to take for RCB in their tight defeat to MI. Their bowling in the middle overs was good, taking wickets to halt MI’s progress a little heading into the big slog overs. However, their death bowling remains an issue, being on the end of a massive onslaught from Hardik Pandya. So, a good powerplay here is vital against SRH’s quality opening partnership. Umesh Yadav will be a key man in the early overs, with Virat Kohli sure to turn to him to deliver the goods against Warner and Bairstow, to get an early shot at Kane Williamson and the middle order. With Yuzvendra Chahal in wicket-taking form, can RCB put together a complete bowling effort way from home?

Also, can greats Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers build on their last game efforts? Both looked outstanding, threatening to take RCB to victory. Indeed, how RCB cope with Rashid Khan will be key, as well as how much pressure they can apply to SRH’s currently expensive seamers. So, the likes of Parthiv Patel, as well as the so far underwhelming Moeen Ali and Shimron Hetmyer, will be key in providing quality support to get RCB to a strong total.

Possible Playing 11

SRH won their last game but they could look to make an adjustment to their bowling attack. Basil Thampi is a wicket-taker, and could replace Sandeep Sharma.

SRH: 1. David Warner, 2. Jonny Bairstow (wk), 3. Kane Williamson (c), 4. Vijay Shankar, 5. Manish Pandey, 6. Yusuf Pathan, 7. Deepak Hooda, 8. Rashid Khan, 9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10. Basil Thampi, 11. Siddarth Kaul

RCB could have some decisions to make. Colin de Grandhomme and Moeen Ali have been disappointing, so it remains to be seen whether they look to bring in Tim Southee and/or Washington Sundar.

RCB: 1. Parthiv Patel (wk), 2. Virat Kohli (c), 3. AB de Villiers, 4. Shimron Hetmyer, 5. Shivam Dube, 6. Colin de Grandhomme/Washington Sundar, 7. Moeen Ali/Tim Southee, 8. Umesh Yadav, 9. Yuzvendra Chahal, 10. Navdeep Saini, 11. Mohammad Siraj
