Umesh and Kohli do it for RCB

RCB host SRH in must-win game

The impact of the unrest in the team's management has come down heavily on the team's performance.

"We knew that they will try extra with their mystery spinner not playing".

A shocking batting show on Monday (88 all out in 15.1 overs) made sure the Kings XI's Net Run Rate took a huge beating.

Mayukh continues: "On the other hand, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have had a bit of a break and are still sitting comfortably at the top of the table". With two games left to play for a team that suddenly might have an actual chance to qualify for the IPL playoffs, Virat Kohli's men will know that they can not slip up at the very end of the group stages. Given Mumbai Indians have the best NRR among all teams this year, Kohli would have had an eye on the margin of win all along. "It's important to have the right mindset - not to think too much about qualifying". Flawless game for us. They need to win their remaining two matches if they are to qualify for the playoffs. RCB are still languishing at the second last position on the table, while SRH are on top of the table with 18 points.

The pair cautiously put nine runs for Bangalore in the first over.

What to expect: Mostly cloudy skies with a maximum temperature of 28 degrees.

Virat Kohli's men will now play their penultimate match in the round-robin stage against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) who have been a brute force to reckon with. Other teams will be wary of a team with such mindset.

Yusuf Pathan had a hit in the nets but he might still not be rushed back into the side after missing the previous game through soreness. They were looking to be simply undefeatable in this tournament before the last game where they lost comprehensively against CSK. He might yet get a chance to reclaim his spot from Shreevats Goswami before SRH head into the crucial playoffs. The former cleaned up AB in their last encounter. Kohli has managed to score at a rate of 169.69 against him. The two have combined to score almost half of RCB's total runs this season but the side needs bigger contributions from the likes of Moeen Ali and Corey Anderson. He scored undefeated 128 runs in only 63 balls. The bowlers, led by India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (8), have been terrific. In 20 overs DD lost five wickets against SRH. He has an ER of 6.74 in the Powerplay and 9.91 outside it.

Williamson- Has arguably been the best skipper-batsman on display this IPL.

The hosts are overtly dependant on Kohli and South African swashbuckler A B De Villiers. "Ever since "a lady" has come into my life, she has taught me a lot of things", said Virat. "He has been such a wicket-taker in the Powerplay".
