Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the league match of IPL 2020 aka Indian Premier League which will be played at the Sharjah International Stadium in Sharjah.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost their last two league games and are in a desperate need to win this game. A win in this game will ensure their place in the playoffs and this is their main priority. The fitness of Navdeep Saini will be monitored and if he is fit, the team can certainly play with their strongest side or they need to rotate some players in this game as well.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
David Warner, Virat Kohli, Yuzvendra Chahal, AB de Villiers, and Jonny Bairstow.
BLR vs SRH Team Wicket-Keeper
AB de Villiers (Price 10), Jonny Bairstow (Price 9.5), and Josh Phillipe (Price 8) will be the wicket-keepers of our squad. ABD is not at his best but he is a game-changer and on this ground, he just cannot be dropped whereas Jonny is a match-winner and after getting dropped in the last game, he is expected to come back stronger here. Josh, on the other hand, is a young talented opener and is majorly picked to manage credits in the game.
BLR vs SRH Team Batsmen
Virat Kohli (Price 10.5) will be our batsman from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kohli has been in a brilliant touch and is the current 4th highest run-sorer of the tournament. He has scored 424 runs at an average of 53 and just cannot be dropped.
David Warner (Price 10.5) and Manish Pandey (Price 9) will be our batsmen from the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Warner played an outstanding inning in the last game and is now the 3rd highest run-scorer of the tournament whereas Manish is looking in great touch lately and will be an asset at the number 3 slot. The batting of SRH relies too much on both of them.
BLR vs SRH Team All-Rounders
Jason Holder (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounder from the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Holder has been decent in the tournament so far and has picked six wickets in his bowling. He bowls at the death and is a decent batsman as well.
BLR vs SRH Team Bowlers
Yuzvendra Chahal (Price 9) and Mohammad Siraj (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Yuzi has been the best bowler of the side and has picked 18 wickets in the tournament whereas Siraj has picked five wickets in the last three games. Both of them are wicket-takers of this side.
T Natarajan (Price 8.5) and Sandeep Sharma (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Natarajan has picked 13 wickets whereas Sandeep has picked 8 wickets. Sandeep has been bowling really well lately whereas Nattu is also bowling some economical overs at the death.
Match Prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad will be the favourites to win this game.
