SRH vs RCB Today Match Prediction & Tips

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Royal Challengers Bengaluru in Match 41 of the 2024 Indian Premier League on Thursday evening. The hosts have won five of their seven matches whereas RCB are bottom of the table with only one victory from eight. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at 19:30 local time at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have been the destructive batting force of this year’s IPL and even though they did not break their IPL team total record for the third time this season, in their last match they hit the largest ever T20 powerplay score. Against a struggling RCB, we expect them to dominate again.

RCB very nearly came out on top in their last match but with the side low on confidence, they were unable to get over the line and ended up losing in spite of needing only three runs from two balls at the end. There were positive signs but this is going to be a very tough match.

Although Sunrisers have won fielding first as well as batting first at this venue this season, teams batting second have a win ratio of over 56% in Uppal. Our prediction is that both sides will choose to field first ahead of this match.

SRH vs RCB Pitch Report

Slow bowlers have been the main ones who have been able to keep their economy records down on this pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium so far this season and we expect pace bowlers to leak runs once more in this game. A par score is likely to be over 200 with the openers on both sides having the best of the batting conditions with the fielding restrictions during the powerplay.

Hyderabad Weather Report

Although there will be some cloudy spells, it is going to be a very hot evening in Uppal with the temperature over 30 degrees from start to finish. No rain is forecast with humidity levels no higher than 30%.

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

Once again, Pat Cummins announced an unchanged side ahead of the match against Delhi Capitals and at the moment, due to their exceptional form, the batting line-up picks itself once again. There could be a temptation to play another spinner on this pitch but overall we expect the same XI to be selected.

SRH Key Players

  • Travis Head – The Australian is going after bowling attacks from ball one and we expect to see him do the same in this match. In the last clash with RCB, he hit nine fours and eight sixes.
  • Heinrich Klaasen – The South African has made only one half-century from his last five innings but that came against RCB when he hit 67 runs from 31 balls.
  • T Natarajan – The left-arm pace bowler has some excellent variations which will be key on this pitch. He got the big wicket of Dinesh Karthik in the last clash with RCB.
  • Pat Cummins – The captain has had a good tournament so far with both the ball and in his leadership role. In the last head to head he finished with three wickets.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Umran Malik, Anmolpreet Singh, Akash Maharaj Singh, Glenn Phillips, Washington Sundar

Washington Sundar came into the side during the fielding innings in place of Travis Head during the last match. With this pitch likely to be one where spinners have an influence, we expect the same impact switch.

SRH Team Form

Sunrisers Hyderabad come into this match looking to record their fifth successive victory in IPL 2024. 

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Nitish Kumar Reddy, Shahbaz Ahmed, Abdul Samad, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Mayank Markande

RCB Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

Mohammed Siraj, Cameron Green and Karn Sharma all returned to the RCB XI for their narrow defeat against KKR and after coming so close we are anticipating seeing a very similar side selected for this match. Yash Dayal is likely to be left out after conceding 107 runs from his last two appearances.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli – The 35 year old right-hander will be looking forward to taking on the Sunrisers attack again after hitting 42 in the last head to head.
  • Will Jacks – The attacking England all-format international impressed against KKR with five sixes and four fours in his 55 runs from 32 balls.
  • Lockie Ferguson – The New Zealand pacer got the big wicket of Rinku Singh in the last match and dismissed both Travis Head and Heinrich Klaasen in the head to head with Sunrisers in Match 30.
  • Cameron Green – The Australian all-rounder returned to the team against KKR and got the wickets of Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Suyash Prabhudessai, Anuj Rawat, Yash Dayal,  Vijaykumar Vyshak, Saurav Chauhan

With Suyash Prabhudessai coming off the bench and hitting 24 runs against KKR, he could well fulfil the same role in this game along with Siraj a likely candidate to miss the batting innings.

RCB Team Form

RCB have now lost six matches in a row in the tournament and are rock bottom of the table

RCB Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Cameron Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Siraj, Swapnil Singh, Karn Sharma

Who will win Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru T20 Match?

Although RCB are undoubtedly becoming more competitive, they are up against an almost unstoppable batting force in this game. We have Sunrisers Hyderabad as our top team in this match.

🏆 SRH vs RCB Prediction

RCB will have spent a lot of time wondering how they managed to lose that high scoring contest against KKR but they must now try to find a way of reducing Sunrisers Hyderabad’s ability with the bat. This could well be another game which sees a combined total of 450 runs and in that situation it is very hard to see Sunrisers Hyderabad being out hit by another side. We are predicting a high scoring game but with RCB falling to another defeat and Sunrisers Hyderabad winning again.
