Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the match 27 of the IPL 2016. The latest Sunrisers Hyderabad v Royal Challengers Bangalore betting tips for this IPL 2016 encounter can be checked below.
Things haven’t been going according to the plan for Royal Challengers Bangalore so far, despite having the strongest batting attack in the league. Five matches in, they have now lost three of them owing to which they are the seventh placed team in the league.
Their last fixture was against Gujarat Lions on Sunday, which they lost by six wickets. Batting first, Virat Kohli played a captain’s innings, scoring 100 runs off 88 balls. Staying through the 20 overs, he was accompanied by KL Rahul, who scored a half century to add to the score.
But once again, their bowling problems continued to be the cause of their defeat, with Kane Richardson and Shane Watson going for expensive spells. Gujarat Lions won the match with three balls to spare.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad are sitting at the fifth place, with three wins and three defeats. Their last match was against Rising Pune Supergiants, which they lost by 34 runs on D/L method. However, the good news for them is that Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner are in a good form, and have been pretty consistent so far.
Moreover, with Ashish Nehra back in the squad and Bhuvneshwar Kumar beginning to find his rhythm in the side, their bowling attack is definitely re bolstered. But same isn’t the case for Royal Challengers Bangalore, who lost Mitchell Starc and Samuel Badree to injuries. With all their bowling tactics failing so far, it will be interesting to see how Daniel Vettori solves this problem.
