New Delhi: Heavyweights Royal Challengers Bangalore will be pitted against Sunrisers Hyderabad in an enthralling encounter in Bengaluru on Tuesday as both teams will be eyeing for a positive start to the Indian Premier League season 9 campaign.
Both teams did well at the auctions to add some vital fire-power to their ranks and that promises aplenty to vouch for when the two sides square off.
RCB is led by Virat Kohli and SRH will see Australia's David Warner leading his side as it will be a battle of wits and aggression.
There are several high-profile players and impact players that can go on and make the outing count on Tuesday. Focus will also be on youngsters to do well and build on their confidence.
Here are few players to watch out for in Match 4 of IPL 9 season.
Virat Kohli (RCB): The Indian talisman is in superb form of late for his national side and with IPL now he will hope to continue in similar fashion and taste. Kohli will have some superstar names batting alongside him and with his experience, he will hope to build on partnerships and bat long.
Shane Watson (RCB): Shane Watson, who is this IPL's million dollar man, will be eager to light up his new franchise Bengaluru. The all-rounder, who retired from international cricket recently, has vast experience of Indian conditions and will look to contribute immensely with both bat and ball.
David Warner (SRH): Warner will want to lead his side well this term and knows a lot will rest on his shoulders in giving his side a positive and brisk start atop. Warner is expected to have similar impact like that of Chris Gayle for RCB and once he gets going, expect SRH to fly along.
Ashish Nehra (SRH): The veteran Indian fast bowler will be a trump card for SRH against the fancied top order RCB batting. Nehra's ability to bowl well in powerplay overs will serve as a key to his side's chances and he will be focusing on getting early wickets to give SRH the momentum.
