You can't expect RCB to suffer another batting collapse

Bengaluru: Sunrisers Hyderabad Head Coach Tom Moody says the stunning collapse that Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered was a one-off thing and such a disastrous performance will not be repeated by the hosts.

RCB recorded the lowest total in IPL history as they were all out for 49 in 9.4 overs against Kolkata Knight Riders.

"There is no doubt that they boast some of the game's most destructive players. We all know and we have seen what they are capable of doing. You will be a fool to think that you can turn up tomorrow night and you are going to replay what happened in Kolkata. We are not paying attention to what happened there," Moody said on the eve of match against RCB.

Moody said inspite of winning last two games against RCB at this venue they are focused on getting their right combination.

"That does not count. Firstly, we have to get the right combination tomorrow and we have to be on cue with every part of the game, for we know RCB is a very dangerous side," he said.

Asked what could be good first innings score on this ground, Moody said the pitch is certainly not similar to last year and the team is preparing accordingly following the failure of any team to post 200 runs here.

Reacting to Muttiah Muralitharan's view that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of the best fast bowler in the history of IPL, Moody said, "Murali has seen lot of cricket, so he is a pretty good judge I would have thought."

"There is no question that Bhuvi is having a very good year. He has been outstanding over the period of time. His greatest strength is his ability to strike in the initial stage of the game and towards end," he said.

Moody said dew factor played a role in the match against Mumbai Indians and some decisions went against the team.

However, Pune match should have been won but for Mahendra Singh Dhoni who played a gem of an innings, Moody said.

Asked what was the reason behind picking Siddarth Kaul over Moises Henrques for the last over, Moody said, "Henrquies does not bowl at the end. This role is not cut out for him.
