Cricket Betting Tips for VIVO IPL 2017 29th game: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
MATCH RUNNING UPDATES
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad:
Royal Challengers Bangalore will be keen to bounce back after a shambolic defeat suffered at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens in their last game. No one expected a batting lineup to fold for 49 runs with likes of Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in the ranks.
RCB touched a new low in last game at Eden Gardens having set highest total records in the last season of Indian Premier League. Nathan Coulter Nile and Chris Woakes proved too hot to handle as the visitors were caught off guard by movement on a surface offering variable bounce. This defeat serve them well as the franchise was similar kind of situation when Virat Kohli plundered a lot of runs to help the side qualify for the finals of the competition. At M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, Virat Kohli will be focused to make amends for the last game and produced their best game against reigning champions Sunrisers Hyderabad who are in good touch coming into this contest.
Much to the surprise of fans, batting has been a real disappointment with Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli have not been making runs on a consistent basis and do not feature in the batting charts for this season’s Indian Premier League. Kohli will be important as masterclass batsman has seldom let his side down with the bat when in crunch games in the competition. He is only player who can raise his game in a big situation. Bowling has been splendid with leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal producing the goods on a consistent basis. Pawan Negi also has been impressive while S Aravind and Mandeep Singh have been poor. Stuart Binny might replace Aravind for this game.
Sunrisers Hyderabad look in a better position to win this game as David Warner will be aware of the fact they need to produce wins in the coming games to make it easier to go through to the playoffs of Indian Premier League 2017. Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh and Kane Williamson have done for Hyderabad with the bat in hand. Shikhar Dhawan has also showed consistency in the last few games to see Sunrisers get back to winning ways after suffering a timely blip in the season.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been in scintillating form with the ball in hand followed by Rashid Khan who has done tremendously well in his first season of Indian Premier League. Ashish Nehra and Mustafizur Rahman have to sit on the sideline due to poor performances as Muhammad Siraj and Siddharth Kaul looked good in the last few games for Hyderabad.
