IPL 2018 RCB vs SRH: Players to watch out for

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: IPL T20 Squads, Preview, Prediction, and Fantasy Picks

" With a clinical performance in all three departments in their last game, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) seem to have finally got a hang of things in the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL)".

Keeping that in mind, Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will have to give their best to beat SRH and keep their playoff dreams alive. The last time these two teams met this season, SRH stunned RCB with yet another dominant display with the ball.

Coming to the away side, SRH depend quite a lot on opener Shikhar Dhawan (369 runs) and skipper Kane Williamson (544 runs) for inspiration. Both the remaining games are must-win for us and this one poses a bigger threat as we take on the table toppers, SRH in our own backyard.

De Villiers (358 runs) is next to him, although he has played two games less than the Indian captain.

Needing 20 off the final over, Williamson was caught on the boundary by Black Caps teammate Colin de Grandhomme.

An air of uncertainty prevails in the State, not just around the Vidhana Soudha - Karnataka's seat of power - but also at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, home of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).


Today's IPL match of SRH vs RCB is to start at 8 pm IST with toss taking place at 7:30 pm IST.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will be hosting SunRisers Hyderabad at their home ground - M.A. Chinnaswamy Stadium. Even with two wins, RCB may not qualify for play-offs due to inferior net run-rate. Too often their attack has been tasked with bailing SRH out of jail after a failure from their batsmen, but the top order has improved over the last few games with Dhawan rediscovering his form from earlier in the tournament.

De Villiers turned on the show, taking risks but as the old saying goes, fortune favoured the fearless. That RCB don't concede many runs in the Powerplay is largely down to Umesh's excellent bowling at the start. On the other hand, the Kane Williamson-led team will be looking to test their bench strength as they have already booked their spot in the Playoffs.

RCB raised 100 for loss of two wickets in the 12th over and looked comfortable for a tall score.

Kane Williamson 81 (42) and Manish Pandey 62 (38) nearly managed to tip the game to their side, but Bangalore's bowler managed to hold them back even in the death overs.

The live match of Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad live streaming will be broadcasted on Star Sports network. The match completely changed in RCB's favour as Siraj dismissed Kane Williamson for 81 runs on the first ball of the 20 over.
