Sunrises Hyderabad (SRH) will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the first time in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season.
The game is touted as a ‘RCB batsmen vs SRH bowlers’ fixture and is expected to give fans a roller-coaster ride.
SRH is at the top of the points table as they have won 7 games of 9 so far. Their performance in this season has been phenomenal. Their confidence got a boost when they posted their highest run-chase of the season against Delhi Daredevils (DD). They will be looking forward to keeping the winning momentum into their side and secure the ticket to playoffs with the win.
On the other hand, the IPL campaign for Virat & Co. has not been successful as they find themselves in the bottom half.
The momentum is not with them as they are coming after a loss in their previous game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). They are yet to find a winning XI and the way the points table is moving; every game is a do or die game for RCB
