The Royal Challengers Bangalore have already qualified for the 2021 IPL playoffs and will now have their eye on trying to break into the top two. This will be tough for them to do, but it is possible if they manage to win their last two games. Their next match is against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, a team that have only managed to win two of the twelve games that they have played. Keep on reading to find out who we think will go on to win this match.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team Preview

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are hitting their best form at the correct time. Their batting is coming together very well thanks to runs from Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Devdutt Padikkal. Their one missing link is AB de Villiers, but we would not recommend that you bet against him, even during this late stage of his career.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore gave Dan Christian a game in the last match, which we thought was a bold move. They have been pretty flexible with their batting order, which is something that can be very effective when done wisely. If an early wicket falls, Srikar Bharat is their go-to batter when there is an early wicket because he can help to prevent a collapse, but he is wasted if they get off to a pretty decent start. When it comes to their bowling, Harshal Patel has not only been their best bowler, but he has been the best bowler in the tournament. Then there is Yuzvendra Cahal who seems to be getting back to his very best.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore could decide to rest a few key players for this game, but with a top two finish still up for grabs, we highly doubt that they are going to make any wholesale changes to their side.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team Preview

Things really are not looking good for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Not only are they losing matches, but their experiment to give its younger players some experience in a cricket match is just not paying off. Players such as Abdul Samad, Priyam Garg, and Abhishek Sharma have certainly not lived up to their hype.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad are still too reliant on Kane Williamson and Jason Roy to score the bulk of their runs. However, they have both struggled on the slow wickets, and this could be an issue in this next match as well. There needs to be a changing of the guard in the bowling department too. Sandeep Sharma and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar are not as effective if the ball is not moving, while Siddharth Kaul is overly erratic.

We feel that Rashid Khan is their only true threat in their bowling attack, with Jason Holder being effective every now and then. Umran Malik bowled with real pace in the last match and this was great to see, but raw pace alone is definitely not going to be enough to cause huge problems for the batting talents in the RCB lineup.

Toss Prediction

The team that is lucky enough to win the toss will probably opt to field first. There has been a bit of dew in Abu Dhabi, and this gives the chasing team a big advantage. Five of the six games that have been played at this stadium have been won by the team that was chasing.

Pitch Conditions

The Abu Dhabi wicket was a lot better to bat on in the previous game as we saw the Chennai Super Kings and the Rajasthan Royals both hit over 180 runs with consummate ease. This is one of the only high-scoring matches that we have had in the second leg of the 2021 IPL. We would not bet on the total runs, total fours, or total sixes markets until you get an idea as to how the conditions have evolved. Dew will probably play a role in this game, but that is something you will only be able to take advantage of by in-play betting.

Our Match Prediction

We would put our money on the Royal Challengers Bangalore to win this game. The likes of Jason Roy, Jason Holder, and Rashid Khan are the only threats to the RCB. The Royal Challengers Bangalore have shown some great form in recent matches, and we feel that they should be able to carry on with their winning ways.
