Royal Challengers Bangalore got off to a promising start in IPL 2021 as they defeated the reigning champions Mumbai Indians by two wickets.
RCB’s bowling, especially Harshal Patel did a fine job, to restrict MI to 159 runs. SRH, on the other hand, got off to a losing start as their middle order failed to fire at all cylinders in their opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders.
We have got some useful Betting tips for you that can help you in placing the right bets. We will discuss current form, head to head, stats, and players to watch out for in the upcoming match.
RCB will look to continue the winning momentum going. The Virat Kohli-led team did a fine job with the ball but had veered off the track in their run-chase against MI. Thus, the Men in Red will aim to come up with a complete performance against the Orange Army.
Meanwhile, SRH bowling has one of the best bowling attacks in the tournament but they conceded 187 runs on a dry Chennai pitch. They were able to bounce back in the last five overs but their middle-order continues to be their weak link. David Warner’s team will aim to get their first win of the season at Chennai.
Head to Head: Overall matches – 18, Won by SRH – 10, Won by RCB – 7, Abandoned – 1.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will hold the advantage as far as the head-to-head battle is concerned.
Players to look out for: Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kyle Jamieson, and Devdutt Padikkal will hold the key for RCB.
David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Rashid Khan, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the crucial players for SRH.
Stats: David Warner has scored the most runs (593) for SRH vs RCB whereas Yuzvendra Chahal has scalped the most wickets (16) for RCB vs SRH.
