Hello and Welcome to our preview for Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match. We are covering RCB vs SRH Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the T20 match. The match is to be played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are on the bottom end of the points table with only four wins in thirteen matches and are out of the race for playoffs. Their last match against Rajasthan was washed out due to rain. However, In the 5-over contest, They lost seven scalps in five overs and were able to score 62 runs with help of 7-ball 25 from Kohli. Defending the target, They were near to lose due to expensive bowling from their pacers but rain saved them from adding another loss to their tally. RCB will hope to end the forgettable season on a high note by winning their last league match and spoil the party for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is fourth on the points table with six wins and seven losses but is yet to qualify for playoffs. Kolkata Knight Riders are also competing hard for the fourth spot and Hyderabad will be determined to get two crucial points defeating RCB. In last match, They lost to Mumbai Indians in a super over. Bowling first, Hyderabad bowlers bowled well to restrict Mumbai at 162 with Khaleel Ahmed taking another three-wicket haul. Chasing the target, Saha and Guptill got quick starts but failed to convert into a big score. Manish Pandey played another attacking knock of 71* runs in 47 balls and was supported by Nabi to tie the scores. In Super over, SRH could only score 8 runs which was successfully chased. SRH will hope to put their best effort in last league match in order to qualify for playoffs.
