Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News for the IPL match with Royal Challengers Bangalore

Hyderabad Team News

Sunrisers Hyderabad are fielding one of the strongest bowling attacks in the IPL and that has always been their pedigree.

Despite rocky performances time and again, they manage to punch above their weight in style, thanks to their impeccable bowlers like Rashid Khan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi.

It is their batting department that needs a fair bit of work as David Warner and Manish Pandey can’t single-handedly lead the way. We saw the same thing happen in their opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders, where they fell shy of just 10 runs from winning the game.

Luckily, SRH have alternatives available in the form of Jason Roy, Kane Williamson, and Kedhar Jadhav.

For this game, we expect all their top bowlers to start in the match. However, it wouldn’t be surprising if we see some changes made to the top and middle order.

Likely XI: Warner, Pandey, Bairstow, Samad, Jadhav, Shankar, Sharma, Natarajan, Kumar, Nabi, Khan

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News for the IPL game with Sunrisers Hyderabad

Bangalore Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore may have won their first match but many would agree that luck may have played a part.

They won the match by just 2 wickets and had it not been for AB de Villiers, they very well might have lost the game.

In the bowling area, Harshal Patel is likely to get the nod to start again after his five-wicket haul in the opener, alongside Yuzvendra Chahal and Kyle Jamieson.

Kohli has the option to choose between Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson to add more depth to the bowling.

As for their batting, Devdutt’s Padikkal’s return to the fray should make life easier for their openers. The rest of the spots should automatically fill up by de Villiers, Maxwell, and others.

As evident, there is a lot of talent in this team but the ability to perform when needed is what this team needs to work on.

Likely XI: Padikkal, Kohli, de Villiers, Maxwell, Christian, Patel, Chahal, Jamieson, Ahmed, Siraj, Sundar

Venue & conditions

The game will be played in the Chepauk Stadium, Chennai where the pitch is starting to warm up after back-to-back matches. We are not seeing a lot of swing for the seamers on this pitch but there may be something for spinners.

Expect another match where a score of 160-170 is definitely on the cards. Batsmen will look to make the most of powerplay, with dew likely to play a role in the second innings.

SRH vs RCB Head-to-Head

Hyderabad lead 10-7 in the head-to-head tally with one match ending in no result.

Last season, they met thrice in the IPL. Hyderabad and Bangalore shared a win each in the two league fixtures while in the Eliminator, it was Warner’s SRH that eclipsed RCB to reach the qualifier.

Toss Winner

Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the toss on more occasions than Bangalore. However, Kohli’s luck may be turning after winning the toss against Mumbai in the opener. We are backing him to win the toss in this match too and level the toss stats to some extent.

Hyderabad vs Bangalore Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back RCB to win @ 1.83 with Betway

We are backing RCB to win here owing to the fact that they are in fine form at the moment. Beating the defending champions in the opening game will certainly do wonders to any team’s confidence and that is just what Bangalore needed to start their IPL 2021 campaign.

While there may have been a few faults in their performance from day one, those are something that can be addressed in the training sessions. Plus, there is an abundance of talent and experience in Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Case in point, Virat Kohli, Glen Maxwell, and AB de Villiers alone can turn the course of the match around on their best day. And speaking of Maxwell, the Australian will not be under that much pressure here to perform, seeing that he has some big names by his side to complement the efforts.

So with this kind of firepower, Bangalore will more than fancy their chances of retaining their winning momentum.

That said, they will need to be on the lookout for SRH’s threatening bowling attack. Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, and T Natarajan pose a very real danger to RCB’s batsmen, and surviving them will be the key here.

At the same time, RCB will need to be more disciplined in the bowling department. They must ensure to not give a lot of room to the likes of David Warner and Manish Pandey. Getting them out early is crucial.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Total Sixes – Over 6.5

Recommended Bet: SRH Total Sixes Over 6.5 @ 2.10 with Betway

In our opinion, this is one of those safe bets with a very good chance of clicking. Here’s why:

From the few of games played in Chennai so far, it is quite evident that you can easily hit the sixes if you have the right players to do so.

Hyderabad hit 10 sixes in their unsuccessful target chase against Kolkata Knight Riders with Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey hitting three sixes each.

Combine this with the fact that RCB’s bowling still needs a bit of work, there is no reason why SRH batsmen cannot find the opportunity to hit the ball for a six every now and then, especially when we are looking at just seven sixes in 120 balls.

Today’s SRH vs RCB Hot Bet

Recommended bet: Virat Kohli to be Away Team Top [email protected] 3.00 with 10CRIC

Virat Kohli got to a good start with the bat against Mumbai (33 off 29) but fell to a tricky delivery by Jasprit Bumrah.

Nonetheless, Kohli is a T20 specialist and his recent form from England’s Tour of India Series is a strong testimony to his abilities with the bat. Additionally, as a captain, Kohli will look to step up and deliver, just like Sanju Samson and KL Rahul did for their respective teams.

Moreover, Kohli is likely to either open for RCB or come one down in the order – either way, he gets plenty of time on the crease to hit sufficient runs to become the top batsman for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

SRH vs RCB fun statistics

  • Warner has scored an astonishing 700 runs against RCB in the Indian Premier League
  • Whenever the two teams met in the league stage in the last three seasons, the spoils were shared between them with a win each
  • Kohli just needs to score 36 runs to become the leading runscorer against SRH in the IPL
