Sunrisers Hyderabad v Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Historically, Sunrisers Hyderabad have come out on top when these two sides meet, but it’s always a close game and that historical differential isn’t much. They’ve played each other 18 times, with SRH coming out on top in 10 of those clashes. One game was a tie, which means that RCB have won 7 of these games. You should see the new recruits on both sides beginning to gel at this stage, and we expect that Virat Kohli’s Bangalore side will have this game earmarked as one in which they can definitely pick up maximum points.

Sunrisers Hyderabad v Royal Challengers Bangalore Odds

Sunrisers Hyderabad will be the slight bookies favourites, while Royal Challengers Bangalore are underdogs. A SRH win is priced at 1/1 while a RCB victory is 20/27.

Sunrisers Hyderabad v Royal Challengers Bangalore Tips

Bowling is going to be SRH’s strong suit as they aim for a play-off position. Meanwhile, RCB have favoured their batting prowess for this season, so expect these two stylistically different teams to clash. We’re predicting that RCB will win for game sixes, which is currently priced TBC. Expect big games from Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell on the RCB side and captain David Warner for SRH. Jonny Bairstow should start this game due to his more impressive showings across the innings, so he’ll also be one to watch in this one.

Rashid Khan to be Sunrisers Hyderabad’s top bowler – 2/1

He’s most people’s favourite to come out as top bowler for the SRH, but we think Bhuvneshwar Kumar is also a strong outside bet for this market priced at 3/1.

YS Chahal to be Royal Challengers Bangalore top bowler – 5/2

Yuzvendra Chahal is earmarked to have a strong game on this oval, so we’re backing him to be the away sides’ top bowler at 5/2.
