Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bowl first against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Sunday’s IPL fixture between the two sides. SRH skipper Kane Williamson was unavailable yet again, meaning Bhuvneshwar Kumar is leading the team.
Sunrisers made two changes, replacing the injured Williamson for Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi and Deepak Hooda for Shabaz Nadeem. For RCB, Prayas Ray Barman will be making his debut in place of Navdeep Saini. At the age of 16 years and 157 days Barman is the youngest player ever to play in the IPL and one of the youngest ever to play a professional T20 match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (C), Parthiv Patel (wk), Moeen Ali, AB de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Colin de Grandhomme, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, Prayas Ray Barman, Yuzvendra Chah
