IPL 2018 Live RCB vs SRH Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Kane Williamson are in terrific form

IPL 2018 RCB vs SRH Live Score

Kohli and ace South African batsman AB De Villiers are RCB's key players as far as the batting in concerned.

Williamson then combined with Manish Pandey as both the batsmen put on 135 run stand to take the team closer to win.

So, on balance, Royal Challengers Bangalore have to "win it to be in it" so I'm going for an RCB win and no room for any mistakes as Sunrisers are clinical in their defence of small totals!

De Villiers (358 runs) is next to him, although he has played two games less than the Indian captain.

Rashid first saw the back of de Villiers brilliantly caught by Dhawan at deep backward square before packing Moeen one ball later, caught behind by Shreevats Goswami.

Earlier, de Villiers and Moeen Ali smacked breezy half centuries to help Bangalore overcome a shaky start and post a mammoth 218/6 against Hyderabad in a must-win tie. Thereafter, Colin de Grandhomme used his brute power to score 40 runs off just 17 balls while Sarfaraz Khan remained unbeaten on 22 off 8 balls to provide the late impetus to Bangalore's innings.

Things are still not easy, as they will host the table toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in Bengaluru on Thursday. They have won their previous two games, while Hyderabad is coming off a loss at the hands of Chennai.

The Match will commence at 8:00 PM IST. They managed to take only one wicket in the last match and have had a large percentage of this season's centuries scored against them. However, the good news is that RCB still has an edge at home as they have won three matches at M Chinnaswamy while SRH has won two at the venue.

And for both teams to achieve their respective targets, Kohli, De Villiers (RCB) and Sandeep (SRH) will definitely have a huge say in the outcome of the match. What will be of upmost importance though for RCB is their middle-order also stepping up and relieving the pressure on the duo of Kohli and de Villiers. On the batting front, apart from Shikhar Dhawan (369) and Williamson (544), Yusuf Pathan (186), Manish Pandey (189) Shakib-Al-Hasan (166) all have chipped at crunch situations.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.

RCB have had a mixed season this year where they lost a number of matches consecutively one after the other but have now been able to balance themselves up to an extent.
