Umran, Karthik in focus as merry Sunrisers take on RCB

Bombay: Umran Malik’s raw pace and Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s consistency will be put to the test against Dinesh Karthik’s explosive punch and Faf du Plessis’ finesse as Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL clash with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, here on Saturday .

Malik has captured everyone’s attention this season with his fiery deliveries. His fast pace has even put established batters like Shreyas Iyer in trouble.

Along with senior teammate Bhuvneshwar, the 22-year-old formed a match-winning partnership to beat Punjab Kings by seven wickets in their previous outing.

Sunrisers, who are aiming for a top-4 position, also have Yorker specialist T Natarajan and South African Marco Jansen in their ranks. Jansen has also been able to tease batters with his angles and variations.

But the seasoned Du Plessis and Karthik have thrashed the best in the business.

The new RCB skipper roared back into form with a nice 96 as he anchored his team’s innings after the top order collapsed again against Lucknow Super Giants.

However, the veteran South African batter missed a well-deserved first IPL hundred in the 18-run win on Tuesday.
