The 24th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 will see the Royal Challangers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. The momentum is clearly with Shikhar Dhawan’s team after a thrilling win against Mumbai Indians. With three losses on the trot Bangalore desperately need to turn things around with their power-packed team.
With the West Indian maverick Chris Gayle making his way back after an injury layoff, he should take the onus of inspiring Bangalore with one of his typical hell-for-leather knocks. Bangalore’s versatile geniuses, skipper Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have not been amongst the runs and will look to start with a bang in India. The battle between the South African duo of Dale Steyn and de Villiers will be a one that’s eagerly awaited by the fans and should make for compelling viewing.
With two wins out of five, Hyderabad are in a similar position as Bangalore. Their performances have lacked a coherent structure as they are a setup that revolves around their international stars to lead them to victories. In their final game in the UAE against a toothless Mumbai Indians (MI) outfit, Hyderabad galloped to form with a plethora of contributors leading them to a thrilling win. While David Warner showed the form that he has been for Australia since the turn of the year, rookie Indian batsman KL Rahul did his reputation no harm by playing a steely innings.
