rcb vs srh Match Prediction & Analysis

IPL2020 is intensifying with only 5 matches remaining and still 6 teams in contention for the 3 play-off spots. RCB are currently placed at the second position and they will look to win this match and finish among the top-2 teams to take a direct route to the finals. They need to win one of the raining 2 matches to qualify directly. They are in a bit of worry with two back-back losses. SRH are hanging by the wall and will need to win both their remaining matches to have the qualification chances intact. Any further slip-up will end the SRH`s chances of qualification.

Teams Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Devdutt Padikkal is having a superb debut season this year with 417 runs with 4 fifties so far. Phillipe replaced Aaron Finch at the top and looked good for his 24-ball 33 runs. AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli are in good touch this season and will look to continue their top form with the bat.

Bowling department`s effectiveness has been biggest factor in RCB`s success this year. Yuzi Chahal led the bowling attack valiantly in this season too. Mohd Siraj and Chris Morris have been amongst the wickets consistently with Washington Sundar chipping in with economical overs in all the matches.

Top players to bet on:

Virat Kohli – Kohli fell for a single digit score after scoring 30+ runs in the last 4-5 matches. He is RCB`s leading run scorer with 424 runs at a strike rate of 122 so far.

Yuzi Chahal – Chahal has bamboozled the batsmen with his leggies and googlies this season taking 18 wickets at an economy rate of 7.25 RPO. He has never allowed to charge in the middle overs effectively.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing XI:

Josh Philippe, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana/Moeen Ali, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview

Wriddhiman Saha (87 runs) and David Warner (64 runs) took the opposition bang on early in the match with their 107-run partnership inside 10 overs. Manish Pandey`s cameo took their team total to a massive 219 runs in their 20 overs.  Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, and Jason holder can be very effective with the bat in middle order.

Pacers Sandeep Sharma and T Natarajan picked up 2 wickets each in the last match to stall the opposition. Rashid Khan bowled the most economical spell in IPL2020 with figures of 4-0-7-3. He was unplayable and looked like taking wickets on every ball. Shahbaz Nadeem and Jason Holder took one wicket each to chip in for the team.

Top players to bet on:

David Warner – Warner has been aggressive with the bat in last 3 matches with their middle order batsmen standing up. Wriddhiman Saha`s knock will do a world of good for Warner and SRH in coming matches.

Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan is arguably the best spinner in T20s and he has 17 wickets at an economy rate of 5 RPO this season.  He is literally unplayable in the last 2-3 matches deceiving batsmen with his wrong ones and leg-spinners.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Predicted Playing XI:

David Warner (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar/Abhishek Sharma, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan

Weather Conditions

Sharjah has a hot and humid weather with the dew expected in the second half of the match troubling the bowlers to grip the ball.

Venue Details

Sharjah is starting to slow down and batsmen are finding it difficult to score runs. Teams scored less than 150 runs batting first in the last 2 games. The pitch is expected to improve for batting as the match progresses.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have won the last 4 matches on a row on this pitch and we expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss and use the early moisture to their advantage.   

RCB vs SRH Winning Prediction

SRH and RCB have a superb batting line-up with RCB having an upper hand due to the likes of ABD and Kohli in middle order. RCB`s bowling has been on a downhill in the last 2 matches and they need to fix their combination as earlier as possible.  SRH rely heavily on their top-4 in batting and Rashid Kahn in the bowling attack which might haunt them in crucial situations. We expect RCB to win this match owing to presence more number of match winners in their playing XI.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will win the match.
