Chinnaswamy Stadium #RCBvSRH pic.twitter.com/E55T1GEBq8advertisement- IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 25, 2017Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will look to dust themselves up from the devastating outing in Kolkata Sunday night as they face Sunrisers Hyderabad, who seek first away win in the Indian Premier League(IPL)on Tuesday. (Read Full Preview)Pursuing Kolkata Knight Riders’ lowly total of 131 on Sunday, RCB, boasting the star troika of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle, were floored for 49 all out in 9.4 overs – IPL’s lowest ever total, losing the match by 82 runs at the Eden Gardens.The defeat was RCB’s fifth in seven games and left them languishing at the bottom of the table. As RCB skipper Virat Kohli admonished his batsmen, he also said that the team needed to move on, leaving behind the poor show.In the coming game against SRH, RCB batsmen will also face tough test. SRH, currently at the third spot with four wins, have in-form bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Siraj and Moises Henriques.In their last match, this bowling line-up had Rising Pune Supergiant on the ropes, defending a total of 176/3. But SRH were blown away by Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s 34-ball 61 not out wonder.It was defending champions SRH’s third consecutive away loss and they will need to deliver a disciplined performance against RCB. All of SRH’s four wins have come at home and they need to quickly solve the away puzzle. At this juncture, RCB, who will need to pick themselves up mentally, may be the best side to face.
