Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson in focus as faltering Sunrisers take on Royal Challengers with resurrection in mind

Virat Kohli has scored just 216 runs in 11 games at an average of 21.60, and the SRH captain has managed 199 runs from 10 matches at an average of 22.11

Both Kohli and Williamson have struggled for runs in the ongoing season

Both the batting stars have failed to live up to the high standards they have set for themselves and the two teams will be hoping their star batters can snap the wretched run

Kohli showed glimpses of returning to form in his fifty against Gujarat Titans. But he had a howler in the win against Chennai Super Kings in the previous game

Williamson has been a consistent run-scorer, relying on timing and placement of the ball

Williamson has failed to convert starts into big scores. The Kiwi’s strike rate has been a dismal 96.13. and he, perhaps, needs to be more aggressive in his approach

After a five-match winning streak, the Sunrisers have slumped to three losses on the trot due to an injury to their frontline bowlers

Marco Jansen was dropped from the side but Tom Moody will be tempted to bring back the South African given that he was the wrecker-in-chief against RCB last time

Abhishek Sharma has given SRH solid starts but the youngster needs to take his innings deep rather than playing a flash in the pan sort of knocks

Nicholas Pooran has been brilliant in the past couple of games, showing that he can finish off matches with a little support from the top order
