Royal Challengers Bangalore finger spinner Washington Sundar is hoping for the pitches in UAE to assist spinners in IPL 2020. Sundar has been a part of the RCB franchise for a little over 2 years is hoping to play more matches than last year. Due to the presence of Moeen Ali and Yuzvendra Chahal, last year he only got to play 3 games in the entire season.
