Match 30: RCB vs SRH | Full Analysis | Pitch Report | Best 11

The 30th match of the tournament between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The match between them will start at 7:30 P.M. (IST). 

Teams Analysis: 

Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB):

This team is currently placed at the bottom of the table with only 1 win in their 6 matches. Their bowling has been the weakest among the teams in the IPL, which mostly cost them the match. Their skipper Faf du Plessis already accepted the fact that their bowling is not up to the mark. They lost back to back 4 matches and in the last defeat where MI just demolished their bowling line up from the start till the end. Now they have to perform much better to make their chance into the playoffs. 

Virat Kohli is the only player in the team who is giving his 100% and yet the result is not in their favour. He scored 319 runs and is currently leading the chart in the orange cap list. He has 1 century and 2 half-centuries to his name. He loves to bat in Bengaluru and has scored 3246 which also includes 4 centuries and 25 half-centuries. Faf du Plessis also looked in rhythm in the last match as he got 61 runs with the bat and his consistency also required by the team most. 

Glenn Maxwell highly disappointed the franchise with his batting as he was unable to score runs and got out early. Till now he just managed 32 runs in 6 matches and the highest was 28 runs which came against KKR. With his bowling he has performed a little better as he got 4 wickets till now. Rajat Patidar after failing to score runs finally looked in form as he registered a blasting half-century against MI in the last match. He scored 50 runs in 26 balls. 

After Kohli, Dinesh Karthik is the only player who is also giving his best in the batting especially in the death overs. Due to his power hitting in the death overs, the team at the end got a respectable total. He has till now 143 runs with a healthy strike rate of 190.67. 

Bowling has been pathetic of this team. None of them are looking to provide wickets at regular intervals. Instead of this they are providing many runs especially in the death overs where the opposition easily get above 11-12 runs per over. 

Their experienced bowler Mohammad Siraj has taken 4 wickets only with an economy of 10.41. He is conceding runs easily and unable to show his brilliance in this season till now. Yash Dayal is comparatively doing better with 5 wickets to his name with an economy of 8.32 and is best among the bowlers in the team.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH):

This team is defining the definition of destruction. They are looking brilliant in both the departments but their batting has been better than the bowling. They are currently in the 5th spot with 6 points in 5 matches. They won 3 and lost 3. They won back to back matches in their last two. Their last victory was a close one when they got merely passed against PBKS in the last over.

The openers of this team have purely shown power hitting from the start. Abhishek Sharma has scored 177 runs and is striking with 208.24. His highest score was against MI when he registered the fastest half-century for the team in just 17 balls. On the other hand Travis Head also made his bat sound as he got 133 runs with a strike rate of 172.73.

Heinrich Klaasen has been in brutal form and is currently scoring the most runs for the team. He has credited 186 runs till now with a strike rate of 193.75 and also hit two 50+ runs till now. He is a beast and can hit whenever he comes to bat. Aiden Markram also played decently till now with 127 runs in his pocket. He also got one 50+ runs till now which came against CSK. Nitish Reddy is also contributing well after scoring his maiden half-century in the last match. 

Skipper Pat Cummins is taking the charge in wicket departments after grabbing 6 wickets till now in this season. His economy is also under control which is 7.3. After missing a couple of matches T Natarajan joined the squad. He has taken 5 wickets till now. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is looking in his perfect line and length after getting some disappointments in the initial matches. He has taken 3 wickets till now.

Pitch Report:

This match will be played at M Chinnaswamy stadium, Bengaluru. No doubt in this how much the batters love this pitch. Due to short boundaries huge destruction can be seen. Pacers might get little benefit as compared to that of spinners. Chasing will be easier in this pitch.                  

Weather Report:

The weather will be a little cloudy but no chance if rain is expected. The highest will be approx 36 degree celsius but at night it will drop down to 21 degree celsius in which players will find it easier to play. Humidity will also be less as it will be around 28%.         

Best 11 for the Match:

Heinrich Klaasen, Dinesh Karthik, Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Glenn Maxwell, Aiden Markram, Pat Cummins, Reece Topley, T Natarajan.
