Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad fight it out to seek a possible berth in top four. As two teams look horns in a crucial tie we take a look at five players who can change the game in match number 46.
1. Yuvraj Singh (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Yuvraj Singh is out of dismal phase and has already won RCB a game. He has scored 308 runs at a strike rate of 141.93 and is surely in his zone now. Yuvraj has hit 25 sixes the most this season by a RCB batsman. He has proved it time and again that he is a match-winner and steps up his game when his team most needs it from him. If RCB have to qualify Yuvraj needs to continue the way he is batting.
2. AB de Villiers (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
RCB will be happy how their middle order has performed particularly AB de Villiers. With 343 runs at an average of 42.87 and strike rate of 161-03 de Villiers has been consistently amongst runs. His strike rate shows how dangerous he becomes towards the death overs. He has and can turn games head on.
3. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has picked 18 wickets and holds the purple cap. He provides SRH with early breakthroughs and then in death overs contains batsmen. Bhuvi has not only been wicket taker but has been miser with the ball as well giving away runs at an economy of 6.28.
4. David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
David Warner has scored 375 runs including four half-centuries. He scores runs at a gutsy pace and improvises once he gets going. SRH are blessed to have this attacking right-hand batsman in their fold.
5. Dark Horse: Darren Sammy (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
Darren Sammy now has an added responsibility as a captain and his camp will be looking for an all-round show from him. He has been in and out of the team but now has to lead from the front and take SRH to next round.
