IPL SRH vs RCB: Rashid’s battle with Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers to take centrestage


How Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) star batsmen AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell deal with SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) spinner Rashid Khan could possibly be decisive within the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) match between the 2 groups on Wednesday (April 14) on the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.

RCB pacer Harshal Patel’s contest with SRH’s middle and lower order may also be an fascinating affair. A buoyant Patel, who took 5 wickets in opposition to Mumbai Indians within the event opener, shall be raring to go once more within the loss of life overs. On Tuesday, he informed media how he’s relishing the new-found duty.

SRH, who misplaced their final match narrowly to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), will want to begin properly. A few early wickets in opposition to KKR had set them again and though Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey tried their finest, they fell quick.

SRH have used an fascinating tactic this time. Up till final season they discovered success largely thanks to captain David Warner and Bairstow’s opening partnership. In the earlier sport, they let Wriddhiman Saha, who had performed some sensible knocks in direction of the tip of the earlier season, open alongside with Warner and Bairstow got here in at No.4. SRH shall be involved about their quick bowling. Both Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Sandeep Sharma went for too many runs in opposition to KKR.

Devdutt Padikkal will in all probability return to the highest of the order for RCB. Padikkal was rested from the earlier sport following his restoration from Covid-19 and in his absence, RCB opened with captain Virat Kohli and Washington Sundar, who failed to get going. The return of Padikkal, who was in nice kind within the Vijay Hazare one-dayers, bodes properly for RCB. SRH’s new-ball bowlers may have to do away with Padikkal and Kohli shortly if they’re to give their spinners some backing and freedom to bowl at RCB’s hard-hitting center order comprising Maxwell and de Villiers.

RCB’s spin bowling has been the weak hyperlink, in contrast to SRH, and Yuzvendra Chahal, who’s having a poor run of kind, may have to increase the bar. Chahal was wicketless in opposition to Mumbai Indians and gave away as many as 41 runs at an economic system of 10.25.
