The campaign of RCB in this IPL is almost at the end with three victories out of nine games. The Sunrisers Hyderabad has a formidable bowling department and hitters like Shikhar Dhawan, Alex Hales and Kane Williamson who can thrash the inconsistent bowlers of the RCB. They have Bhuvneshwar Kumar back into the team in their arsenal.  Challenging the SRH on their home ground seems an ordeal for the visitors. The SRH secured the top position in the points table as well.

Match Begins In:

The Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to pull the Delhi DareDevils to the edges of elimination and are looking for doing the same to the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The RCB have to win all the upcoming games for survival in this tournament.

In the game against Chennai Super Kings, the Royal Challengers Bangalore failed to counterattack the bowlers and lost wickets earlier. The star batsmen like Kohli, De Kock, and Mc Cullum have to hit some cameos to save the team from humiliation. Without improving their all-round performance, the Bangalore team cannot counterattack the table toppers which include bowling spearheads like Shakib Al Hasan, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma, and Rashid Khan.

The RCB managed to win two games by the knocks of De Villiers and Umesh Yadav is the only bowler in form for them. They have to improve on themselves to keep their hopes alive for playoffs.
