Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday evening at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The second battle of the day will be the clash of both in-form teams as Bangalore have managed to win five games out of seven, while Hyderabad has stitched four wins on the trot after losing the first couple of matches.
Faf du Plessis regained his momentum in the last clash as he rescued his side from a mini-collapse caused by Lucknow bowlers. He scored 96 in just 64 balls, while Glenn Maxwell (23 off 11) and Shahbaz Ahmed (26 off 22) contributed to the game. Inconsistency from Anuj Rawat has been one of the issues for the side, along with a poor form of Virat Kohli.
However, Dinesh Karthik has been in the form for ages and has been winning the games single-handedly for his side. His performance will be crucial for Bangalore in the upcoming clash. The pace attack is being graced by Md. Siraj, Josh Hazlewood and Harshal Patel, whereas Wanindu Hasarnga leads the spin department.
On the other hand, Hyderabad is riding high after winning four straight games and will be confident when they take on Bangalore. Performances of Kane Williamson, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran have been incredible in the tournament, and the side will heavily bank on these players to add runs on board in front of impressive Bangalore bowlers.
Umran Malik, T Natarajan and experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar will have a huge responsibility to restrict in-form Faf du Plessis, Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik.
