IPL 2020 Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match Preview
SUNRISERS HYDERABAD TEAM ANALYSIS
David Warner and Jhonny Bairstow will open the batting, Warner is seen out of form in England, but he has average of 80 against RCB. Bairstow has come to UAE with a ton in his last match. They will be key to SRH
Manish Pandey will be key for Sunrisers as he is the only experienced guy in the middle order,he has 3 fifties against his name in the last edition and scored 344 runs in 12 innings.
Priyam Garg comes in to the team with heavy name has captained India in under-19 circuit, He has an impressive average of 30 with strike rate of over 130. He will be tested against quality bowling attack of Bangalore.
Vijay Shankar will be playing role of finisher and allrounder for his team. Handy bowler who can accommodate quite 2-3 overs in middle of innings, He has scored 244 runs in the last edition.
Mohammed Nabi another experienced player in lower order who is in impressive form in recently concluded CPL, scalped 13 wickets which includes a fifer. Scored some quick runs coming at the end of innings.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar highest wicket taker for his team scalping 106 wickets in his career, pace department will be heavily reliant on him. He has scalped 13 wickets for his team in the last IPL.
Rashid Khan will be leading spin department, had a decent outing in CPL having 11 wickets against his name.He has 17 wickets in last IPL with economy of pinch over 6 which is quite remarkable.
Khaleel Ahmed and Sidharth Kaul will be third and fifth bowling options available of team, they are seen leaking runs in last IPL. Khaleel was quite expensive but picked up 19 wickets and proven handy in international exposures as well. Either of Kaul or Sandeep Sharma will be playing along side Ahmed.
As a team, Hyderabad will be again reliant on Warner and Bairstow to give them head start,their middle order is a concern as always
