Hello and welcome to sports stars LIVE coverage of the IPL 2022 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad from Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Bhuvneshwar continues. Du Plessis gets an inner rim on his thigh as he looks to step out and swing through the leg-side leash. He gets out of the next ball again for a single halfway through. Another single for Patidar on the next ball offside.
RCB 14/1 in 3 overs: In and down leg with the wide ball angle. The batters collect a single to make it two without a legal pitch being thrown into the over. A few more for Patidar – this time without a fight. He taps the next through mid-wicket for a single. Du Plessis pushes halfway for a point ball. FOUR! Du Plessis gets out, enters the field of the ball and drags it from the outside to the elongated border. Fuller on the stumps and driven through the covers for a single. Almost caught! Patidar got a lead that was just next to Suchith, who jumped to the left to get him.
RCB 4/1 in 2 overs: Bhuvneshwar from the other side. Long ball in the canal and defended from the crease by Patidar. He dabs it to the third man for a single. Fuller out and du Plessis drives to extra cover for a quick single to get off the target. Three dot balls to finish the over. Only two of them.
RCB 2/1 in 1 about: Kohli and du Plessis are eliminated in the middle to open the innings for RCB. FROM! Kohli knocks this full ball on Suchith’s pads straight to mid-wicket fielder for another golden duck. Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson b Jagadeesha Suchith 0 (1b). Suchith keeps it tight on the stumps at a good length. Just a single and wide ball from over. Patidar is number three.

Sunrisers Hyderabad believes in momentum. When Kane Williamson’s men win, they win serially. If they lose, they lose serially.
After winning five games in a row, they lost the next three. Their last win came against Royal Challengers Bangalore. On Sunday, the teams will face each other again at the Wankhede Stadium. However, Royal Challengers is in the top four of the IPL table with 12 points, while Sunrisers, with 10 points, will do everything they can to break into it as the race for places in the play-offs draws closer.

When the two sides met at Brabourne Stadium two weeks ago, the Royal Challengers were tied for just 68 en route to a nine-wicket defeat. Most of the damage was done by two left-armed sailors, Marco Jansen and T. Natarajan, who took three wickets each. Since then, the Tamil Nadu bowler has been injured while the South African has become too expensive.
Umran Malik also proved expensive in the last two games, but his explosive pace has also won games for Sunrisers this season. The captain’s form with the bat was a concern, but Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran were among the runs.
Like Williamson, RCB’s slamming superstar Virat Kohli has had a season to forget. But skippers like skipper Faf du Plessis and Dinesh Karthik have made good trips with the bat. The franchise has a balanced attack, in which spinner Wanindu Hasaranga and Seamer Harshal Patel have been the most successful.
