Sunrisers Hyderabad are going head-to-head battle with Royal Challengers Bangalore in MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai in Indian Premier League 2021.

RCB have won their last match on the last ball but SRH have suffered a defeat at their season opener.

SRH will be looking to gain some momentum but RCB will be looking to make their run smooth.

Inside SRH:

The skipper David Warner was out of form in the first match. He needs to work on that. Wriddhiman Saha also failed as an opener. But he may still be at that role in this match also.

Bairstow and Manish Pandey are in outstanding form right now. Abdul Samad may come up in the order. Vijay Shankar may get another game to prove himself.

Johny Bairstow was expLosive against KKR

Md. Nabi has performed well in the first match so may stay. Rashid Khan was exceptionally good. But the pacers didn’t deliver according to the plan. We may see some changes there.

Inside RCB:

The return of Devdutt Padikkal will give RCB more balance and power in the playing XI. Maxwell and Virat had batted well in the first game. ABD was outstanding for this side as well.

We may see Azharuddin in place of Rajat Patidar or Rajat can get more matches to prove himself. Dan Christian was not so impressive but Daniel Sams is not available so Christian will continue.

Maxwell batted well for RCB in the first match

The bowling was good, may say outstanding. Harshal Patel took 5 wickets against MI. Debutant Jamieson also bowled very well. Siraj was impressive. Only Chahal went for a lot of runs, he may come back in this match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

SRH vs RCB: What to expect

Consecutive matches are being played at this venue can make the pitch a bit slow now. But we are hoping for a competitive wicket. There no sign of rain. Winning the toss it will be wise to chase due to the dew factor. 160-170 runs will be a good score to defend at this venue.

Probable XI of SRH:

Warner and Saha will be the opening combo. Bairstow will be at no. 3. Manish Pandey at 4. We may see Samad at 5. Vijay Shankar and Nabi will come according to the situation.

Rashid Khan will be at no. 8. Then the bowlers will be Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma or Siddarth Kaul, and T Natarajan.

SRH team against RCB: David Warner (C), Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Jonny Bairstow, Abdul Samad, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma/Siddharth Kaul

Probable XI of RCB:

Devdutt Padikkal will be seen opening with Virat Kohli. Azharuddin or Rajat will be at no. 3. Maxwell and ABD will be the next batsmen. Christian band Sundar will be the bowling all-rounder.

Shabaz Ahmed may sit in this match. Kyle Jamieson, Navdeep Saini, and Siraj will form the pace attack. Chahal will be at 11.

Devdutt was the highest run scorer for RCB last season

RCB team against SRH: Virat Kohli (C), Devdutt Padikkal, Rajat Patidar/ Azharuddin, AB de Villiers (WK), Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Christian, Washington Sundar, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal.
