In the second match of the super Saturday, Royal Challengers Bangalore take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the iconic Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Royal Challengers are just a win away from more or less secure a playoffs spot whereas Sunrisers second last in the points table which is why winning this match should be their top priority if they have any hopes of qualifying for the playoffs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost their last two matches to Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings which is why they’re low on form as of now. Moreover, they have been beaten comprehensively by both Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings which is why it will be interesting to see how Virat Kohli and co deal with Sunrisers Hyderabad at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
On the other hand, the Orange army Sunrisers Hyderabad are in the worst position possible as they lie 7th in the points table.
Let’s take a look at the five key players to watch out for when Sunrisers Hyderabad lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore:
1. Virat Kohli
Leader of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, ‘King Kohli’ never seems to shy away from a challenge, and here he’s up for it, to win the maiden title for his side. After precisely three disappointing matches in the start, Kohli has gained his momentum back.
Six back-to-back forty plus scores, shy of one actually with 33, he has been consistent. Holds back one batting end and lets other dazzle boundaries, sometimes, if not, he ousts them and takes charge himself, which he is very well capable of. Nothing short of cogent has been the captain.
