A South Indian derby it is for the IPL 2016 final, after the Sunrisers Hyderabad,  got the better of the Gujarat Lions in Qualifier 2 in Delhi on Friday. RCB vs SRH promises to be an absolute cracker, a match that should give us plenty of runs – when is that not the case when RCB play, and you add Warner to the mix, it is almost guaranteed – and give the fans at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru plenty to cheer about.

batsmen –Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers -- look near unbeatable and on top of that they will be playing at their home ground, with 30,000-40,000 fans waving red flags and cheering their team on from ball one to ball 240.

The way RCB are playing at the moment – and their bowling hasn't been too shoddy either – they are the big favourites to lift their maiden IPL title, but in Warner, SRH have a batsman capable of single-handedly winning them a match, much like he did against GL.

But, the Sunrisers cannot bank on their captain alone to dig them out of a hole again. If there ever was a platform to showcase your skills, the IPL final is it.

Yuvraj Singh should be pumped up to play against his former team, and with the small dimensions of the Chinnaswamy, the stage is perfectly setup for a six-hitting masterclass from the left-hander.
