Despite giving their best, RCB like every year are still languishing at the bottom of the table. With just 1 win from 8 games, RCB are nearly out of the tournament. Despite the setback, star batter Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer with 379 runs laced with 1 century and 2 fifties.

On the other end, SRH have lit up this IPL by churning on records through some exceptional batting display by their destructive batsmen like Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma. Under the captaincy of Pat Cummins, Sunrisers have scored the highest-ever score in the history of IPL while batting first with 287 runs.

As the two teams are all set to to clash in the upcoming high-octane clash in Hyderabad, Virat Kohli and Pat Cummins were spotted engaged in a fun banter. Now, a video of their interaction has gone viral on social media.

“I heard you saying I was making that wicket look flat,” seemingly referring to his own batting practice, said Cummins while shaking hands with Kohli. 

To this, Kohli laughed before complimenting the SRH skipper. “You are too good, Pat,” said the RCB legend.

Meanwhile, 549 runs were scored at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru when the two teams faced each other. Will SRH do the unreal and score over 300 runs or will RCB emerge victorious in Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad today? Only time will tell.
