Rain delays toss between Royal Challengers & Sunrisers
Incessant rain played spoilsport, delaying the toss in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium here on Tuesday. After a devastating outing in Kolkata on Sunday night against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Bangalore will look to dust themselves up while
Sunrisers Hyderabad will aim for their first away win in the league.
Sunrisers' Bhuvaneshwar Kumar said: "So far we haven't played our best cricket. We bowled well, but we have been outdone by the MS magic in our previous game. Doesn't matter which format, I always try to do the basics. I have been trying to execute more yorkers and slower balls. IPL is not an easy format, we barely get any time to practice.
"But whenever I get time, I make sure that I work on my variations. Winning IPL title here was a memorable one. Hoping for a full game.
"We don't want to play a rain-curtailed game against these guys. We really don't know what the good length on this wicket is.
"We will assess the conditions and decide what's best for us."
RCB's Sreenath Aravind said:"We are a little bit upset with the KKR loss. But we got to remain positive and we are going to come back strong this game.
We bowled well, but didn't bat well in that game (against KKR). Just a three quarter length would be ideal here. Change of pace is crucial on this wicket. Hitting the good length area would be key. They (Warner and Henriques ) are good hitters, but we need to back our strengths and bowl well.
