The final is being held at Bengaluru, which apart from being RCB’s fortress is also a ground best suited to their team. In Rahul, Aravind, and Stuart Binny RCB have three Karnataka cricketers who know what to expect from the pitch. Kohli, Gayle, and de Villiers have played for RCB for years, so they too are virtually hometown heroes. The deck is stacked in favour of RCB, but SRH and Warner are worthy adversaries.
