The match No. 29 in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017, between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) was delayed due to rain. Persistent drizzle around the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru delayed the toss by more than half-an-hour, as the groundsmen kept the covers on the field. The clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad is a critical one for the home side led by Virat Kohli, having lost as many as 5 matches out of 7 so far in the ongoing IPL 2017. Royal Challengers Bangalore had to go through embarrassment in their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders, as they were bowled out for a mere 49 in 9.4 overs.

RCB’s total of 49 against KKR is now the lowest-ever total in the history of Indian Premier League. RCB batted for a mere 9.4 overs, which is the first occasion in the tournament’s history that a team had been bowled out inside 10 overs. RCB also entered the record books as they registered the 10th lowest total ever in all T20 cricket, and Kohli was left shattered after such a horrendous performance by a team that holds the record of highest-ever total in IPL of 263 for 5, which they had recorded against now-defunct Pune Warriors India (PWI).

In the points table for IPL 10, RCB are at the bottom with a poor Net Run Rate (NRR) of -1.210. The runners-up of the 2016 edition of IPL are certainly having a torrid time, but the same cannot be said for their opponents on Tuesday night. Sunrisers Hyderabad, who had earlier defeated RCB in the first match of IPL 10, are at the third spot in IPL 2017 Points Table.
