SRH challenge for resurgent RCB

At one stage, we thought we were down and out. "He plays unencumbered and he plays aggressive, particularly in that Power Play", said Vettori.

Yesterday's game was an important one for Royal Challengers Bangalore. "When he does that, that has a way of flowing through the rest of the team, and particularly with our batting", RCB head coach Daniel Vettori opined. This game and the next game, we know they are two pretty tough games. The India and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain is a run-machine of the most efficient order. Umesh's figures helped bowl Kings XI out for only 88, which RCB chased down with 10 wickets and almost 12 overs to spare. They have already qualified for the play-offs and now sit on top of the table with 18 points and they would like to extend that lead over the Chennai Super Kings and consolidate their No 1 rankings for this season. With two games left to play for a team that suddenly might have an actual chance to qualify for the IPL playoffs, Virat Kohli's men will know that they can not slip up at the very end of the group stages. As games start having more playoff implications than ever, we take a look at how both teams line up before the RCB vs SRH match. That's pretty much the case with us. Flawless game for us.

RCB are on the verge of elimination whereas SRH are in the habit of winning. They still have a good chance to make the playoffs but they have made it hard for themselves after some inconsistent performances. The temperature is expected to be cool and will be around 23 degrees Celsius and 26 degrees Celsius from 8 pm to 12 am.

The absence of their mystery spinner Mujeeb, as Kohli revealed, had put a lot of pressure not just on the bowling unit but also on the batsmen, who were facing the pressure of setting a big total to RCB on a small ground. While a victory in the last fixture guarantees a top 4 finish, a loss would enable other teams to pounce on the opportunity.

Yusuf Pathan had a hit in the nets but he might still not be rushed back into the side after missing the previous game through soreness. Following a poor first half where they lost five of the seven matches, qualification hopes are as thin as they can be.

Was Kohli responding to this video posted by Kings XI last month where Rahul, a former RCB employee, mocks the Bengaluru-based franchise's motto "Ee Sala Cup Namde" (This time the cup is ours)?
