Royals Challengers Bangalore’s disappointing journey has finally come to an end after their previous match against Rajasthan Royals was abandoned due to rain. Their final match of this season will be played at their home in the M Chinnaswamy Stadium against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The love and support the Royal Challengers Bangalore get at their home in M Chinnaswamy is impeccable and they will love to give their fans some reason to cherish by winning their final game of the season.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad needs a desperate win here to stay alive for the playoffs scenario. A loss in their previous match against Mumbai Indians in the super-over has put them in a real spot of bother, and the only way out is a win in this particular contest.
From 6 wins from 13 encounters, they are holding the fourth position and with CSK, MI and DC already into the playoffs, the only spot up for grab is their focus.
Will the Sunrisers feature in the playoff for the 5th time in succession or RCB blemish their hopes? We will get the answers tomorrow.
