Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling stepping up big time

- RCB near the top of the table

Keep an eye on…
Faf du Plessis: The RCB skipper is the third-highest run-scorer in the season and has looked good in the last couple of games. With Virat Kohli out of form and Anuj Rawat too not firing, du Plessis will be a key player for RCB this year.
Umran Malik: The young fast bowler has been bowling pretty fast and can tear through batting line-ups. After being slightly off his radar at the start of the season, Umran has turned up with terrific performances in the last couple of games.
TIP: Faf du Plessis has been in good form with the bat. Back Faf du Plessis at 3.81 to be the top batter for RCB!
