RCB vs SRH Match Preview

As Royal Challengers Bangalore prepares to lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 30th match of the IPL 2024, they find themselves in a challenging position. With just one win under their belt, they currently occupy the bottom spot on the points table, a stark contrast to SRH’s more promising fifth position, secured through three hard-fought victories.

The home team, RCB, will be desperate for a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. However, the task at hand will not be an easy one, as their bowlers will be tasked with containing SRH’s star-studded batting lineup on the batter-friendly surface of the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

SRH, on the other hand, will be riding high on confidence after back-to-back wins against Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings. They will undoubtedly be seeking a hat-trick of victories, reminiscent of their triumph over RCB in the final of the 2016 IPL, where they lifted their maiden title on this very ground.

In the wake of their dismal performance, RCB might be tempted to make some bold changes to their playing XI. After dropping Cameron Green in the previous encounter, it appears that Glenn Maxwell‘s lackluster form might cost him his spot in the team.

RCB’s desperate need to bolster their bowling attack could pave the way for Lockie Ferguson‘s inclusion, alongside Alzarri Joseph, potentially at the expense of Maxwell and Reece Topley. Additionally, Maxwell‘s minor thumb injury might make RCB’s decision to drop him a little easier.

On the other hand, SRH, fresh off a two-match winning streak, are unlikely to tinker with the combination that has worked wonders for them. However, the M. Chinnaswamy surface, known to favor slower bowlers, might compel SRH to field both Jaydev Unadkat and T. Natarajan, despite their similar bowling styles. Nevertheless, a change in the playing XI seems inevitable in the upcoming games.

RCB vs SRH Head To Head Records

Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Sunrisers Hyderabad have faced each other 22 times in the IPL, with SRH taking a slight lead with 12 wins, while RCB has emerged victorious on 10 occasions.

The Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru has hosted seven matches between RCB and SRH, with RCB leading the head-to-head record 5-2.

M.Chinnaswamy Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is expected to be flat, with no significant assistance for the bowlers. The spinners may get odd balls to grip and turn, but it’s a small ground, and even mishits can clear the ropes, making it challenging for the bowlers.

The M. Chinnaswamy stadium is known for its batting-friendly surface, where batters get a good bounce and can connect the ball well. It is considered a batters’ paradise and a nightmare for fast bowlers, where teams can chase even 200+ targets in T20 cricket easily. However, as the match progresses, the pitch becomes more spin-friendly, and spinners can make the ball turn on both sides.

Team Watch:

Royal Challengers Bengaluru

Injury/Availability: Glenn Maxwell, grappling for form, is also nursing a finger injury sustained while fielding against Mumbai Indians. He walked off the field after the blow. Director of Cricket Mo Bobat revealed the all-rounder had two scans and there was no major injury concern just yet.

Tactics & Matchups: When RCB hosted LSG here about two weeks ago, the visitors were unafraid to use two left-arm spinners – M. Siddharth and Krunal Pandya – in the PowerPlay. Usually a graveyard for their kind, spinners have conceded at an economy rate of only 8.35 at the Chinnaswamy this season and it’s a route worth considering against two left handed SRH openers, who like pace on the ball. RCB could have two off-spinners in their line-up if Maxwell is deemed fit to start.

Probable XI: 

  1. Virat Kohli,
  2. Faf du Plessis (c),
  3. Will Jacks,
  4. Rajat Patidar,
  5. Glenn Maxwell/Cam Green,
  6. Mahipal Lomror,
  7. Dinesh Karthik (wk),
  8. Reece Topley,
  9. Vijaykumar Vyshak,
  10. Akash Deep,
  11. Mohammed Siraj [Impact Sub: Saurav Chauhan]

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Injury/Availability: Mayank Agarwal, who had reported unwell, has resumed training and could feature as an impact substitute at his home ground.

Tactics & Matchups: Bhuvneshwar Kumar has picked up a solitary wicket in the PowerPlay this season but enjoys a particularly good record against this season’s leading run-getter, Virat Kohli, who he has dismissed four times in the IPL. Bhuvneshwar also enjoys a good record at the venue, claiming nine wickets from eight visits here at an excellent economy of 7.31.

Probable XI: 

  1. Travis Head,
  2. Abhishek Sharma,
  3. Aiden Markram,
  4. Nitish Reddy,
  5. Heinrich Klaasen,
  6. Abdul Samad,
  7. Shahbaz Ahmed,
  8. Pat Cummins,
  9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar,
  10. Jaydev Unadkat,
  11. T. Natarajan [Impact Sub: Rahul Tripathi/Mayank Agarwal]

Did you know?

– Mohammed Siraj has conceded 123 runs from 10 PowerPlay overs bowled this season for a solitary wicket

– Glenn Maxwell’s highest IPL score of 95 came against Sunrisers Hyderabad, playing for Kings XI Punjab in the 2014 season

– Heinrich Klaasen has struck at 234.38 in the death overs this season, a rate bettered by Dinesh Karthik (250.00). Karthik has also hit one six (11) more than Klaasen in this period

What they said:

“There’s no hiding away from the fact that we haven’t played the way we want to play. When you go into the competition, you work out what you think your best chances of winning are. We came into this competition in the last year of an auction cycle, you go to the auction, you improve the team, the best you can, you set the strategy, and you come in and you expect to deliver. Now, we haven’t played the way we want to play.” – Mo Bobat, RCB Director of Cricket

“I think you have to keep challenging yourself to try to take wickets because any team can score that 60-70 at the back-end, in the last four or five overs. So I think no score is safe. And you always feel you’re in the game, particularly when you’re chasing. I think most teams will come here and try to chase because they feel it’s easier to navigate the innings when you know what’s in front of you.” – Daniel Vettori, SRH Head Coach

Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – Who Will Win?

Sunrisers Hyderabad is a better-balanced team than RCB, with most of their batters in great form, while their bowling has also looked impressive, with Cummins and Bhuvneshwar Kumar performing well in recent games.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru, on the other hand, has lost their last four games and possesses a poor bowling attack, making it challenging for them to stop SRH on the small M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The match will be played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, and it is no secret that the captain winning the toss will likely opt to bowl first, as defending is not easy on this ground. Based on the current form, team balance, and the venue conditions, we are predicting Sunrisers Hyderabad as the winners of this match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match promises high-octane action, with players from both sides showcasing their talent and determination. Stay tuned for what promises to be a thrilling encounter in the 30th match of the IPL 2024 on the JioCinema app and Star Sports Network on Monday, April 15th, at 7:30 PM IST.
