While it is a must-win game for the SunRisers Hyderabad, Virat Kohli too wouldn't want to retreat for a win tonight would guarantee them a place in the top 4 after 4 long years. Bowling has been a cause of concern for RCB off late, and they need to step up tonight for the SunRisers have the highest run-rate (8.24) in the powerplay and have lost the least number of wickets (9). On top of that, Devdutt Padikkal and Joshua Philippe need to get RCB off to a steady start for Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers to take it deep and finish the innings in style. On the other hand, SRH were dealt a big blow as Vijay Shankar has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. That means that there will be extra pressure on the likes of David Warner and Manish Pandey to put enough runs on the board for the SRH bowlers to able to defend.
