Win after win against all top teams paved the path for SRH to enter the qualification games. Hereon it is a knockout game for them. They face RCB in their first knockout game of this IPL. Warner and Saha performed very brilliantly to give the much needed finish for SRH against the Mumbai which went without their star bowlers. SRH will have to perform brilliantly on all 3 aspects to win against the Bangalore side led by Kohli. But going from a continuous winning streak would be a mental advantage that the SRH team could have.

Even after 4 straights loses, RCB qualified for playoffs, all thanks to their tremendous performance in the initial stage of this IPL season. Virat and his men lost their final game but still qualified for the playoffs. RCB cannot continue their poor form and need to improve to reach the finals. Virat, ABDe, Padikkal, Chahal and Morris are the crucial players in the team and should perform their best to improve RCB’s odds of winning.
Possible – 11
Virat Kohli (C), AB De Villiers (WK), Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Shivam Dube, Parthiv Patel, Isuru Udana, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar.
A win would send the winning team to qualifier 2 where they face the loser from Q1. RCB and SRH has extraordinary players and anything could happen at such a match with high stakes. But considering the current form, SRH is the clear favourite in this clash. RCB could disappoint SRH very easily with the fire power RCB has in their arsenal. We will have to wait to see what tricks and treats are coming up in this game. Sit tight. Game on!
Sunrisers Hyderabad will be having an edge to win this clash.
