Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) opener Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed for 28 by spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, after being caught by Chris Jordan at square leg, against powerhouse Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), in the final of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday. It was a googly from Chahal, as Dhawan goes for a sweep, couldn’t pick the ball up properly, as the lack of power and elevation carries the ball in the hands of Jordan at the spot. Currently, SRH are 75 for the loss of a wicket in eight overs, with David Warner on 41, and Moises Henriques on three.

After 56 league matches, two qualifiers, and an eliminator, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will face off against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the much-awaited finale of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday. These two teams are the deserving finalists, simply because they are the best batting and bowling sides of the tournament respectively. RCB’s batting is unmatched with the presence of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, Shane Watson, and KL Rahul in the top five. As for SRH, even in the absence of Ashish Nehra and Mustafizur Rahman they still manage to look threatening. Full Cricket Updates: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, IPL 2016 Final

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. Expect a run-fest at Chinnaswamy!
