Sunrisers Hyderabad will certainly be looking to unleash their brute batting power on the struggling Royal Challengers Bengaluru when the two teams face off in their return-leg fixture here on Thursday.

While Mumbai Indians were the first victim of he Sunrisers' batting strength this season, RCB bore the maximum brunt when the Travis Head-led batting line-up powered the 2016 champions to IPL’s highest-ever total of 287/3 at the Chinnaswamy in Bengaluru.

If this was not enough, the Sunrisers' carnage against Delhi Capitals — which included a record 125/0 in the Powerplay — brought forth the possibility of the 300-run mark being breached for the first time ever in the IPL.

And it won’t be surprising if the Sunrisers manage to do the unthinkable and that too against a bowling attack as frail as RCB’s, whose struggles with in the bowling department could be gauged with the fact that their best bowler, Yash Dayal, is at 24th spot in the overall list with seven wickets.
