It is day three of Indian Premier League and it is time to enjoy some rivalry from South India. Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at Dubai International Stadium. RCB is one of the few teams whose performance over the year have been highly unpredictable. The Virat Kohli-led side has shone in patches and lacked the consistency needed to win the IPL title. It relies heavily on the brilliance of skipper Kohli and AB de Villiers, and have not been able to become a unit which can dominate the league.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is one of the most balanced side of IPL or it was. Unlike the previous two seasons, SRH is a depleted side in the middle. When it takes the field against RCB, David Warner’s Orange army will be relying heavily on inexperienced legs to help them sail through.
Can SRH overcome its shortcoming and show why it is still the most balanced side or with the change of country, lady luck will favour RCB?
