So we are also ready with our prediction of the big match with all the yes and no of the individual team. So who will win the grand battle Bangalore or Hyderabad, lets find out.
Can Sunrisers Hyderabad win the Finale ?
If we look at the team and their performance in the tournament, they have won 10 matches so far out of 16 they have played which is maximum of this season. They have won 8 league matches and than Eliminator followed by the Qualifier 2nd. So by winning two big battle in a row the confidence of the player will be on the peak of Everest. They have performed exceptionally well due to which SRH will play the final of the tournament against RCB.
We all the know that Sunrisers have strongest bowling line up and now New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult also joined the team, becomes stronger than ever. Every team struggled in front of their bowling attack. Bhuvneshwar Kumar who has taken 23 wickets in 16 matches is the best performer from their squad and also current Purple Cap Holder of the tournament. Mustafizur Rahman has impressed every one with this bowling efforts and has taken 16 wickets so far. Due to the injury he has missed last match against Gujarat lions but hope he will be back in the finals. Ashish Nehra is not there with the team due to recent injury in his knee which is a big loss to the team but the bowlers like Barinder Sran, Bipul Sharma and Ben Cutting are there who are very economical with the ball and providing important breakthroughs at crucial time. So yes it is true that SRH have strongest bowling squad of IPL 2016 and hope they will restrict RCB in the upcoming match too so that they can’t score big total.
The main problem where Hyderabad team is struggling at is their batting. From the starting of the tournament, one man show continuously on and he is captain David Warner. Whenever he score 50+ runs at 90% of the occasion they won the match but if he got out early than whole team comes under pressure and loose wickets. Shikhar Dhawan, and Yuvraj Singh having good experience of IPL matches but not scoring runs for the team. Youngster like Deepak Hooda and Naman Ojha also disappointing with their short selections. The man who impressed in the lower batting order is Bipul Sharma specially in the last. He has smashed 3 sixes and contributed much-needed 27 runs in just 11 balls and took his team into the IPL Final along with David Warner who has scored his best individual score of 93* runs in 58 balls with 11 fours and 3 big sixes. Warner has scored total of 779 runs in 16 innings with 8 fifties and is on the 2nd position in Orange cap race just below Virat Kohli. So if they want to give a tough fight to Bangalore than they have to improve their batting. Big names who have to score runs at this grand level.
So if we look onto the possibilities of SRH to win the match yes they have very good chances and they have lift the trophy too. All depends on David Warner innings. The bowling is already up to the mark, if the batting order clicked than SRH can make history this season by wining RCB vs SRH Final match.
Chances of RCB :-
Before starting of the tournament every body is predicting Royal Challengers Bangalore as the winner of IPL 2016 as they have strongest batting line up among the all teams but they to poor bowling performance in the starting of the tournament they have lost 5 matches out of 7 they have played in initially. But from there they improved their bowling attack and by winning 6 out of 7 matches in the second half of the league they grabbed second position on the points table with 16 points. In the first Qualifier against Gujarat Lions the top order dismissed early but the man who is famous for his variety of shots AB de Villiers batted wonderfully and took his team into the Finals of IPL 2016. The bowling performance has been improved. Shane Watson and Yazuvendra Chahal are the leading wicket taker from Royal Challengers Bangalore squad. Both have taken 20 wickets so far in the league. Chris Jordan, Iqbal Abdullah are also providing important breakthroughs when captain asks from them. So overall the bowling is quite good.
We all know what RCB can do with the bat. They have scored 248 runs in 20 overs against Gujarat Lions which was the second Highest Team Total in IPL of all time. Virat Kohli what a player, Before this season he has ever scored a century in the history of IPL and this year 4 centuries in his bag. He has scored 919 runs in 15 innings which is also a record. Chris Gayle who can destroy anyone’s bowling career. He is famous for his big sixes and from last few matches he is looking good and may be in the big match we can see some sky flying sixes from him. In the middle order the finest cricketer of the world AB de Villiers is there with the team who can do anything. For him impossible is nothing. Than Shane Watson, Lokesh Rahul and Sachin Baby are there who are also in good form and can hit big shots to add momentum to the total in the slog overs. So the batting line up is fully charged and ready to hit biggies in the final match against SRH.
If we look onto the players and their performance in the previous matches, Bangalore have very good chances to win the grand finale of IPL 2016. They are good with the ball and wonderful with the bat.
