Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad face off in match number 30 of IPL 2014. Sunrisers Hyderabad may be very strong team on paper but Rajasthan Royals current run makes them the hot favourites. We take a look at some duels that can make this clash more enticing
Pravin Tambe vs. David Warner
Pravin Tambe’s two ball hat-trick left Kolkata Knight Riders devastated and he has now become the Royals’ lead bowler. David Warner likes to go against spinners and with his unorthodox strokes he can be more lethal. An interesting battle is up for grabs.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar vs. Shane Watson
Bhuvi bowled a dream first over against Royal Challengers Bangalore dismissing Parthiv Patel and then sending Virat Kohli back for a duck. He will be Dhawan’s go-to bowler when Shane Watson will come out bat as he can trouble the RR captain who hits them big with his both in and out swingers.
Dale Steyn vs. Ajinkya Rahane
Dale Steyn had a rare off-day when his compatriot AB de Villiers pounded him. He is a stubborn character and will be yearning to bounce back. Ajinkya Rahane on the other hand has developed himself into a T20 batsman and is a vital cog up the order in RR batting. His early wicket will put RR in some pressure, Steyn will be aware of that.
