IPL 2018 Score, RCB vs SRH: Royal Challengers Bangalore were asked to bat in a must-win game against table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in their final home game of the season, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. RCB, who have wrapped up back-to-back wins for the first time since 2016, were unchanged while Sunrisers, having already secured a top-two finish, rested their key bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar to hand an opportunity to Kerala quick Basil Thampi.
Wriddhiman SSaha,who is recovering from a shoulder injury, and Yusuf Pathan, who had missed Sunrisers’ last game because of soreness, did not find a place in the team. Instead, Shreevats Goswami and Deepak Hooda were retained.
“We’ve got nothing to lose, a week ago, we weren’t even in consideration for the playoffs,” said Kohli. “The key is to just keep playing without fear and enjoy each other’s company, which we’ve gone for the last two games. it’s been a pleasure playing with this bunch, they bring so much passion as a group.”
RCB need to win this game as well as their next, and against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur, to entertain hopes of a playoff berth.
