Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will lock horns in Match 3 of the Dream11 IPL in Dubai. Both the teams have a balanced IPL squad leading into their maiden IPL fixture in 2020. Before we consider at SRH vs RCB Dream11 Match Prediction, here's a brief preview to what SRH and RCB offer in IPL 2020.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will be led by David Warner in IPL 2020. The Orange Army has a strong core group of overseas players. However, they will face a challenge to pick a decent Indian middle-order in their playing XI against RCB.
On the other hand, the Virat Kohli-led side will have a task cut-out in order to kickstart their IPL campaign with a win. RCB didn't have a great season in 2020, and will certainly look to improve their previous IPL record against Hyderabad. In 2020, Bangalore has most bases covered with experienced players in each department.

What to expect – Ground and Pitch Conditions?
In the DC vs KXIP match at Dubai, the pitch had an even covering of grass. The new ball offered some assistance for the fast bowlers. Otherwise, it was a decent pitch for batting despite some early breakthroughs for Delhi in the first innings. Teams winning the toss would want to bowl first considering the dew factor later in the evening.
Both Hyderabad and Bangalore will face the challenge to pick their best playing XI ahead of their opening match. While Hyderabad will focus more on getting their middle-order right, Bangalore will lay much emphasis on their fast-bowling recruits against SRH.
Probable Playing XI
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Under the leadership of David Warner, SRH is highly likely to open with Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Manish Pandey will be the key batter in the middle-order while Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead their pace attack in the first match.

David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (Wk), Manish Pandey, Virat Singh, Vijay Shankar, Mitchell Marsh, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
RCB fans would feel rather confident with the kind of RCB squad in IPL 2020. Apart from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, RCB has a great batting unit including the likes of Aaron Finch, Parthiv Patel, and Devdutt Paddikal. However, Kohli would be more concerned to pick their best possible bowling line-up in his playing XI against SRH.
