Once again Royal Challengers Bangalore is coming into attack with the team of Gujarat Lions. Both teams are trying very hard, so that they could not play-off spot. There is only similarity between both the teams in IPL Season 10 that they are showing their desperate quest for points. As the tournament is half over, Gujarat Lions (GL) are still at the last position, meanwhile the team of RCB is also not going well. As taken a review from the previous match between Royal Challengers Bangalore & Sunrisers Hyderabad which was played in Bangalore, M.Chinnaswami Stadium on Tuesday, the teams had to be satisfied with one point after the rained-out and the match was abandoned due to the rain. Coming to the team of Gujarat Lions, they were one of the entertaining sides last season of the IPL. The team was playing as if they were familiar with the dynamics, despite being a new franchise in the tournament. With their Sensational Performance the team managed to amaze every one. For this season Mohammad Kaif is appointed as the assistant coach for Gujarat Lions. It has been the fact that this team is capable of delivering the expectations & playing cohesively as a team. This is the only spirit which the team should be taken care of and must not let it down.
Now coming to the team of RCB, they won the hearts of all the spectators across the globe as they were the runner up in the last season. This year the team has planned to finish the unfinished business by hard hitters and explosive players. It will be almost fair to say that even though they played as a team but there are certain players who deserve special attention. Virat Kohli & AB de Villiers, these two batsmen have dominated the batting arena in the second half of the league. The captain Virat kohli, not only did his job beautifully, but also proved himself as a consistent player in the T20 format. During the course of the tournament, in the 16 innings he scored a humongous score of 973 run with a strike rate of 152.03 and having a highest score of 113 runs.
