The third match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) played between Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) witnessed a different level of confidence in RCB. They were majorly subjected to criticism for having the best skipper and yet not winning the matches. Their inconsistency in the bowling depart and poor deliverance in dead overs were two assets that often have cost them adversely.
However, in their inaugural match played in Dubai, the team showed that the conversation between AB De Villiers and the skipper Virat Kohli was not for nothing. When they discussed whole new confidence, they meant it hence, it has been implemented to the game.
On the other side, SRH, who are never known as a weak team, failed to make it against the Red Army. There might be major issues that must have been tackled by them.
The batting line-up of the Orange Caps looked quite inexperienced. Their major player, Mohammad Nabi, who was spotted in a good form in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) was eliminated from the squad. He might have been a pro spinner to the side as well along with adding runs using his all-rounder’s abilities.
Also, the top-order seemed to be well-equipped with Bairstow and Pandey but lacking consistency and experience in the middle-overs have cost them negatively. With the increasing pressure, the line-up collapsed.
