Royal Challengers Bangalore
Bangalore won three games of four in this season and ranked at the second position in the points table. Skipper Virat Kohli returned in the form in the last game against Rajasthan Royals. He scored match-winning fifty to chase the target of 155. Young opener Devdutt Padikkal slammed three half-centuries in just four games and proved efficient support to senior batsmen in the team. South African stalwart AB de Villiers is looking in fine touch and making most of the runs himself. Australian opener Aaron Finch needs to up his game as Bangalore is facing a tougher opponent in upcoming matches. Sri Lankan pacer Isuru Udana gave wickets in the powerplay in both games he played and bowled good in death overs. They would hope that death bowling specialist Chris Morris will become fit. They can replace leg-spinner Adam Zampa with Chris Morris in this game. So death bowling problems of Bangalore will finish for upcoming games. Allrounder Shivam Dube and Gurkeerat Singh Mann didn’t get any opportunities to prove themselves.
