Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Highlights today – Eliminator (N), Indian Premier League 2020 from Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi Friday, 11-06-2020.
RCB would have bowled first as well, says Kohli, but speaks of putting pressure with runs and early wickets in a match like this. Chris Morris is out with a quad injury. Adam Zampa is in the XI. Josh Philippe is out and Aaron Finch is back in. Navdeep Saini replaces Shahbaz Ahmed. Looks like Kohli forgot to mention that Moeen Ali is also back in, replacing Isuru Udana.
The last couple of matches at all venues have been dewy, says Warner. This wicket is not going to change much, he says. Saha misses out with injury. We think it could be Sreevats Goswami coming in for him. Confirmation on that shortly.
SRH won the toss and chose to bowl first.
