Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers will be brimming with confidence after they blew away the Delhi Capitals in their previous match. After being asked to bat first, SRH made the record for the highest powerplay score in T20 history after racking up 266 for 7 in 20 overs. Thereafter, the bowled DC out for 199 in 19.1 overs to win the match by 67 runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

The SRH vs RCB prediction will depend on how the SRH batters keep taking down bowling attacks in the tournament.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Possible 11: Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Nitish Reddy, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, T Natarajan

Royal Challengers Bengaluru

The Challengers, meanwhile, will be devastated after losing to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 1 run on Sunday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. After being asked to chase down a mammoth target of 223, RCB agonisingly fell short of the finishing line at the City of Joy.

Will Jacks and Rajat Patidar scored 55 and 52 respectively and put on a partnership of 102 runs for the third wicket. However, their efforts went in vain. Cameron Green failed with the bat, but was impressive with the ball in hand with decent figures of 4-0-35-2.

The outcome of the SRH vs RCB prediction on how the Challengers somehow manage to recover from the slump.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Possible 11: Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Cameron Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Karn Sharma, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Siraj

Our SRH vs RCB Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Dinesh Karthik, Heinrich Klaasen
  • Batter(s): Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma

In 8 games, Kohli has scored 379 runs at an average of 63.16 and a strike-rate of 150.39 with a hundred and 2 fifties to his name.

SRH vs RCB match prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win

As per the SRH vs RCB match prediction, the Sunrisers will go into the match as firm favourites. While SRH have been in jaw-dropping form, especially in their batting department, RCB have just not found a way to win matches consistently.

SRH vs RCB toss prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the toss and bat first

As per the SRH vs RCB toss prediction, SRH should opt to bat first after winning the toss. Batting first has clearly been their strength. If RCB win the toss, they should opt to bat and make SRH come out of their comfort zone.

Player of the Match prediction: Travis Head

Travis Head is currently going through a purple patch and has been hammering every bowling attack. Given the kind of form he has been in, it should not raise eyebrows if the left-handed batter yet again wins the Player of the Match. Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klaasen will also be strong contenders to win the award.
