RCB will kick start their campaign against David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Dubai International Stadium on September 21. Momentum has been a key for RCB’s journey in the previous seasons. Hence, they will like to get off to a winning start.
The addition of Aaron Finch will add more firepower to the already strong batting line-up while South Africa duo Chris Morris and Dale Steyn will strengthen the pace attack. However, with the tournament taking place in the slow and dead pitches of UAE, the role of the spinners become even more significant. Among the spin bowlers, Kohli has the services of Yuzvendra Chahal, Adam Zampa, Moeen Ali and Washington Sundar. Well, the side certainly looks quite balanced on the paper.
