Sunrisers Hyderabad come off a disappointing, one-sided defeat to tournament favorite Chennai Super Kings on Saturday, when the bowling attack that was supposed to be the team’s strength failed to show up, allowing 209 runs to the two-time champions — the first and so far only 200-plus score in the IPL tournament this year — while taking just four wickets on their way to a decisive 45 run defeat.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, opened their 2015 IPL campaign in the second game of the day Saturday by upsetting the defending champion Kolkata Knight Riders behind 96 from 58 balls by West Indies star batsman Chris Gayle.
Gayle’s outburst led Bangalore past Kolkata’s 178 with three wickets but only six balls to spare.
In their opener, Sunrisers Hyderabad were hampered by the absence of South African Dale Steyn, one of the world’s most effective fast bowlers. They will need to get Steyn back in the XI to have a fighting chance against Royal Challengers Banaglore, whose relentless batting assault features both Gayle and South Africa Captain A.B. de Villers — as well as India star Virat Kohli, who captains the Bangalore team.
Sunrisers have the weaker batting lineup, but they did themselves no favors in the opener by batting New Zealand international Kane Williamson in the sixth position. Moving Williamson up in the order and setting him up to receive as many deliveries as possible should help the Hyderabad offense, if skipper David Warner chooses to do so.
While the India-based CricHD site will stream the Sunrisers Hyderabad vs. Royal Challengers Bangalore match live online at this link, the site carries a large amount of advertising that can prove inconvenient to say the least. But viewers who pony up the subscription fee for ESPN Cricket will receive a far more reliable online experience for Monday’s sole IPL 2015 match — and all of the remaining 52 T20 cricket matches in the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League.
