Sunrisers Hyderabad captain and Australian superstar David Warner have warned Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore that they are preparing for their elimination in the IPL. The RCB-SRH elimination fight is on Friday. The losers of this match will be eliminated from the tournament. The winning team must play in two qualifiers equal to the semi-finals. Opponents will be the team that loses in Qualifier One. The winner of Qualifier Two will be the second team to reach the final.
Hyderabad, who were hoping to get out of the playoffs at some point, finished fourth in the points table with a hat-trick victory. SRH has beaten Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the top four in the table.
Defeated in 2016 final.
Warner said Royal Challengers Bangalore is the best team. The RCB team has a lot of dangerous players. We won 2016 IPL final by defeating RCB.
The RCB has come up as rivals in another life-and-death struggle. Warner said he hopes the current form will continue and that he hopes to beat RCB in the final of 2016.
Demonstration against Mumbai.
In the decisive final league match, SRH put out a stellar performance against defending champions and top-ranked Mumbai Indians. Mumbai was bowled out for 10 wickets. Mumbai was helpless in front of Hyderabad, first in bowling and then in batting.
Some players were rested in Mumbai. However, it was a great performance to get them down to 150 runs. Nadeem conceded just 19 runs in four overs against Mumbai, which has a lot of left-handed batsmen. And took two wickets. Warner pointed out that this was an unforgettable performance.
You may have seen Rashid Khan’s disappointment when he wasted a catch against Mumbai. We play with so much passion. I am proud to have given Hyderabad a great start in the run chase. That is my job and my responsibility. Warner said after the match that fortunately, the team did not have to chase the big score.
Earlier in the league stage, when RCB and SRH clashed, both teams had won each. RCB won by 10 runs in the first quarter and SRH by five wickets in the second quarter.
