Preview: It cant get bigger than this and with season at stake Royal Challengers Banagalore will be looking to carry on the winning momentum on his home ground at M Chinnaswamy Stadium where they host Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday. Sunrisers Hyderabad are already assured of a play-off berth, but would look to try out their reserve bench strength in the marquee clash against RCB. First though, they need to win their last two games and also increase their net run rate in the process. SRH skipper Kane Williamson's 81 and 135-run stand with Manish Pandey (62 not out) went in vain as the table-toppers slipped in the closing stages of the game.
With addition of another 17 runs in Hyderabad's scorecard, AB de Villiers took a stunning catch at deep midwicket to pack back Hales off a Moeen Ali delivery.
SRH who have qualified for the playoffs could rest a few key players, but that is unlikely as coach Tom Moody isn't one to take things lightly. Conceding only two runs in that over, the Aussie bowled an even better subsequent one. On the batting front, apart from Shikhar Dhawan (369) and Williamson (544), Yusuf Pathan (186), Manish Pandey (189) Shakib-Al-Hasan (166) all have chipped at crunch situations. The venue of the match is at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
