Daredevils bat, Bhuvneshwar returns for Sunrisers

It was the crucial stage of the game as the left-hander was set to tonk the ball and was in good form coming into the game.

Eyeing a playoffs berth, Sunrisers face a struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore here tomorrow. And that is the batting which apart from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers has been nearly non-existent for the otherwise batting strong unit.

SRH and RCB clash in IPL 2018 match on Monday. Parthiv Patel was the top scorer for his team, as he made 53 off 41 balls, which included five fours and two sixes. On head-head SRH has won more number of matches than RCB. His 33 came at nearly run-a-ball but his role in the partnership was that of a strike-rotator. They tried Kane Williamson, Saha and Ricky Bhui at the top, but none of them could provide what an aggressive opener could. When you think of Sunrisers Hyderabad, the first thing that strikes your mind is their bowling. In his two innings, he scored 45 - off 39 balls against Rajasthan Royals, and off 31 balls against Delhi. Hales and Dhawan continue to develop a good understanding at the start and the middle-order is slowly starting to contribute.

SRH would like to take each game as it comes, the New Zealander said. Unfortunately, his partner Glenn Maxwell fell for just 2 runs from 3 balls.

Returning from injury, Bhuvneshwar replaced Basil Thampi and although he started off well, the Purple Cap-owner from last season was taken to the cleaners in the final over by Vijay Shankar.

After Hales departed for a well-made 45 by spinner Amit Mishra, DD needed wickets to stall the momentum of SRH to have any chance of winning. After the openers were dismissed, the batsmen who followed batted smartly, keeping the scoreboard ticking even if they didn't find the boundary for a period of more than six overs. Needing 14 to win of the last over, Yusuf Pathan kept his cool to score a four and a six and helped SRH cross the line.

And it is in this department that SRH have excelled. Twice they have got 165-plus targets in 2018 IPL (against CSK and KXIP) and they failed both times. But the skiddy leg-break which was bowled short of a length didn't rise much as expected and rapped Pant in front of the wickets. For Virat Kohli-led RCB, with six points from as many matches, a loss would effectively mean an exit from the playoff race. He has found regular support in the marauding AB de Villiers, who has accumulated 281 in his seven outings. They will hope that doesn't happen again, especially against a high-quality bowling line-up. Rashid would finish with figures of 2 for 23, picking up the Man of the Match award in what was his 100th T20 fixture.
