Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of Match 52 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. This is Pramod Ananth and I will be bringing you over-by-over updates of the match. SRH vs RCB: Preview

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in match 52 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 at Hyderabad. SRH secured a nail-biting five-run over against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their previous match,whereas, KXIP handed RCB a comprehensive defeat in RCB’s previous fixture. IPL 2015: Rejuvenated Sunrisers Hyderabad face Royal Challengers Bangalore in Hyderabad

A win for SRH will take them to second place, tied on points with Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and a win for RCB will take them to fourth place, where Mumbai Indians (MI) are sitting at the moment. RCB will once again look to Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and skipper Virat Kohli to score runs for them and Mitchell Starc will look to impress once again with the ball. Karthik equals IPL record for wicketkeeping dismissals during RCB-SRH IPL 2015

SRH skipper David Warner will look to get his team off to a good start along with Shikhar Dhawan. There is still ambiguity whether Trent Boult is still part of the squad or has departed to England where his national team New Zealand take on England in a Test series starting from May 21. Kane Williamson however is expected to stay back as start batsman Kevin Pietersen pulled out due to a injury. It is an even contest on paper and a must-win for both teams.

Squads:

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Dale Steyn, Karn Sharma, KL Rahul, Ishant Sharma, Trent Boult, Kane Williamson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Naman Ojha, Praveen Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Ashish Reddy, Parvez Rasool, Moises Henriques, Ravi Bopara, Ricky Bhui, Chama Milind, Eoin Morgan, Prasanth Padmanabhan, Bipul Sharma, Hanuma Vihari.
