Have a feeling that Hesson is repeating the same mistakes he had done with KXIP last year. If momentum is anything, you have to maintain it by not doing too much experiments in the name of matchups. Ah matchups !! How can you not send AB at 4, ok he struggled against leg spinners
and KXIP have two in their arsenals. For a moment can digest the Sundar move at 4, but after his dismissal AB was the perfect choice. He also needs time to settle, not a machine he is !!.
171 on the board on this pitch which was gripping and holding a bit, which Murugan Ashwin
himself admitted after the first innings was very much defendable. With Sundar and Chahal in your lineup you can expect that they wreck havoc on the opposition iff used wisely, Yes iff. Sundar who had a dream run bowling in PP and then in middle overs was held back and was not
bowled in PP just to counter Gayle and Pooran. Again matchups !!! He then was asked to bowl in death overs to the set pair of Rahul and Gayle. If these one can understand, Udana's under bowling on a pitch which was tailor made for his bowling is quite baffling. Slower deliveries
we're holding up and odd ones were being low. You are playing 6 frontline bowlers to cover any bowler's bad day in office. But despite Siraj going expensive, Udana bowling only 2 overs is quite strange. You can say that I am overreacting on one loss, but loss against KXIP earlier
and DC were very big compared to this and we were completely outplayed there. Here you have even by doing mistakes in batting reached 171 and so much error in bowling took the match to the last ball. That's irking me like never before. Have complete faith in Hesson- Katich duo.

A country whose riches in spin bowling department have always been unparalleled with the likes of Prassanna, Chandrashekhar, Bedi, Venkat Raghvan and many more, produced one more gem in early 90s. Tall, lean, lithe in his build and calm in nature, ANIL " JUMBO" KUMBLE had.......
scintillating charisma in his fingers. He was not Warne who use to produce lateral magic with his bowling. He had his own way of foxing the greatest of batsmen. His ball used to rush through the air rather than hanging in it and comes with a kick without turning it venomously. ..
A rigorous hard worker Kumble churns his way into the national side in 1990 but it was 1992 tour of South Africa that established him as a match winner when he took 6/53 against the Protease at Johannesburg, fast bowlers heaven !!! Also he finished the tour as the highest......

After the humdinger of a match against MI, RCB somehow managed to pip their opponents in the nail biting Super Over. But it was not a complete performance by any scale for the bold army. Their death bowling woes again come to the picture, leaking 89 runs in 30 balls.
But against the heavyweight MI they would be very pleased to be on the right side and adding vital 2 points to their tally.
Coming to this match, RCB are up against RR who were in red hot form in Sharjah and despite their overseas players missing they stunned CSK and KXIP.
But got hammered by KKR in Dubai, so it will be very exciting to see how they acclimatize to the Abu Dhabi slow and sluggish wicket. Talking about recent encounters between the 2 teams RR have the upper hand with Sanju Samson and Shreyas Gopal the wrecker in chief.
