Bangalore: Apr 9, 2013

Jolted by a narrow loss, Royal Challengers Bangalore would aim for revenge when they take on table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League in Bangalore on Tuesday.

RCB lost to Hyderabad in the Super Over at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday and avenging the close defeat would be on the RCB players’ minds when they take to the field on home turf.

A win on Tuesday would give RCB some much-needed confidence when they face defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders, who had comfortably defeated Delhi Daredevils by six wickets in the opening encounter of this year’s IPL.

Hyderabad, on the other hand, would be keen to extend their winning run after consecutive victories lifted them to the top spot in the points table.

Bangalore’s bowling has been their strength with Vinay Kumar making an impact in the absence of injured pace spearhead Zaheer Khan.

RCB do not seem to be missing Zaheer as almost all their bowlers have done their bit. Muttiah Muralitharan, Jaydev Unadkat, Murali Karthik and Moises Henriques have picked up wickets at crucial stages of the matches.

Batting, in contrast, has struggled as apart from the big-hitting Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli, the others have failed to deliver. Tillakaratne Dilshan and Mayank Agarwal have been the significant failures in the batting line-up.
