Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have been dealt with a massive blow as the wrist spinner Wanindu Hasaranga is not playing the match against SRH. Wanindu Hasaranga so far has taken 9 wickets in 8 matches with an economy rate of 8.9.

Wanindu Hasaranga can also provide lusty blows at the back end of the innings which is priceless. RCB are in a must-win situation if they want to qualify for the playoffs and are currently are placed in 5th position on the points table with an NRR of +0.16.

RCB skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss & opted to bowl first against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The track seems to be a belter. SRH will have to negate the threat of the right-arm speedster Mohammed Siraj who is in red hot form.

SRH would be keen to spoil the party of RCB as we all know the hosts are out of the race of the playoffs. SRH didn’t include the destructive batter Glenn Phillips in the playing 11 and have shown faith in Harry Brook who hasn’t been able to dictate the terms.

The powerplay overs would be quite vital for SRH as if they score around 50 runs then they would be in a state of ascendancy as RCB doesn’t have a threatening spin attack. It would be interesting to see what would be the approach of Abhishek Sharma who is in good form.

Wanindu Hasaranga has a niggle- Faf du Plessis

RCB skipper Faf du Plessis revealed that the spinner Wanindu Hasaranga has got a niggle in his heel and said that he got an injection but he wasn’t 100% fit for the game.

“We are gonna have a bowl. The last two nights we have had some dew. Good surface but touch on the slower side. Same team as last game. Hasaranga has a niggle. Bracewell strengthens our batting. We have to start afresh. The game of cricket has a funny way of biting you. You have to have the humility of looking at a fresh game,” said Faf du Plessis.

RCB have got a strong chance of winning the clash as the hosts don’t have a good record in their home conditions. There are chances that dew might come into action later in the game as a score around 170 most likely won’t be safe.
