This is a preview of the IPL 2021 game between RCB and SRH at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. The game is all set to start at 7:30 p.m. IST. There is not a lot riding on this game for both teams, as RCB have qualified for the play-offs while SRH have been knocked out of the tournament.
RCB vs SRH – Match Preview
RCB will be focusing on the latter stages of the IPL after having qualified for the knockouts. The battle against SRH on Wednesday will primarily be to maintain momentum, while SRH will be keen on taking some pride after what has been a disastrous season.
RCB vs SRH – Predicted Playing XIs
RCB have picked up three consecutive wins and they have been quite entertaining in recent matches. Since the restart, the team has slowly picked up pace and they are in a great spot at this movement. The batting depth has been a major factor behind RCB’s good form and it will be difficult for the opposition if RCB get to bat first.
SRH have been woeful in the IPL since the restart. The Bangalore vs Hyderabad prediction will be heavily influenced by recent form of the two teams rather than the head-to-head numbers. In this regard, David Warner’s men are at a serious disadvantage. The complete lack of batting depth in the lineup continues to be a problem for SRH. However, the motivation to finish the season on a strong note is likely to keep the team on the boil for the game against RCB.
