Table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad will face the challenge of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team as they take on their neighbors at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. Although SRH has qualified for playoffs, they will be itching to have a win under their belt after the embarrassing loss against Chennai Super Kings in the last match. RCB does not have a choice, they have to win every match they play in order to qualify for the playoffs.
Manish Pandey Problem
The bowling strength has always been there for Sunrisers Hyderabad but their batting struggles have come to the fore whenever Dhawan and Williamson have failed. One batsman who has disappointed extremely this season is Manish Pandey.
They say Stats don’t tell you the complete story, in Manish Pandey’s case stats confirm the bad patch. In the 12 matches that Manish has batted, he has scored 189 runs at a paltry average of 21. His strike rate is only 111, very bad for a T20 batsman.
