Chasing 219 runs to win, SRH got of to good start as openers Shikhar Dhawan and Alex Hales posted 47 runs on board. It turned out to be a forgettable day for Thampi as he conceded the most runs by a bowler in an innings in the history of T20. He has 544 runs from 12 games, with seven half centuries to his name, the highest among all batsmen this season. The match will start at 8 PM IST on May 17.

Though, Patel managed a single run before Sandeep Sharma had him top-edging a pull to fine leg with the last ball of the over.

SRH on the other hand have confirmed their qualification in the Play Offs but would like to seal their top 2 finish at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Although today's match is no walk in the park and RCB has to play really smartly against this opponent.

Betting odds: According to Oddscheker.com, the odds are placed at 8/11 for RCB and 13/10 for SRH.

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are the biggest match-winners among the RCB batsmen while the Hyderabad happen have the bowlers who would like to stop the hitters of the RCB. Having won both of their last matches, Kohli's army must be brimming with confidence. RCB, however, have nothing to lose as it's a must win. He removed de Villiers caught in the deep through a brilliant catch by Shikhar Dhawan (3-145) and two balls later scalped Moeen caught in the deep by Goswamy and RCB were down 149 for 4 in the 15th over.

Smart pick - AB de Villiers have been the impact player for RCB, winning few matches for the team with brutal hitting.

Moeen, overshadowed de Villiers in the middle overs as he dominated the third wicket adding 107 in just 49 balls in the company of the proteas (represents South Africa in worldwide cricket) to take the home team to a comfortable position.

Apart from Dhawan and Williamson, Yusuf Pathan (186), Manish Pandey (189) and Shakib Al Hasan (166) have also chipped in at crunch situations for SRH. In SRH's last two games, he has returned scores of 79 and 92*. However, their ability to defend the lowest totals keeps SRH in the game no matter how their batting performs, and that is a huge advantage. Even with two wins, RCB may not qualify for play-offs due to inferior net run-rate.
