Sunrisers Hyderabad Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Prediction, Preview, Playing 11 and Betting tips.

SRH Vs RCB 39th IPL match to be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on 7th May 2018. Let’s get the today’s match preview, playing 11, pre-match analysis, betting tips and check which team has more chances of winning today’s battle.

Another day, another mouth-watering match! The 39th clash of IPL 2018 will be among the leaders, SRH and a struggling RCB. The Bangalore side is left with yet another uphill task if they want to qualify for playoffs. After a disappointing loss against Chennai Super Kings, the Virat Kohli side has to win every match from now on for a hope of qualification. SRH are vying with CSK for the top spot and look very comfortable. This will be a daunting task for RCB as they face the orange army on their home turf.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Easily one of the most exciting and balanced teams in IPL 2018, SRH are on a winning roll. Already on a four-match winning streak, the Sunrisers Hyderabad side is assured of a place in the playoffs with 14 points in their kitty. Much credit has to be given to the skipper, Kane Williamson. Bought in for the suspended David Warner, the Kiwi has been impressive, to say the least.


Batting Line-up

Contributing with the bat as well as making smart decisions on the field, Williamson can lead SRH to their second title. Alex Hales and Shikhar Dhawan opened with a bang against Delhi. Manish Pandey continued to impress with the bat as well. But the good news for SRH came in the form of Yusuf Pathan. The big man had been struggling to find his form as of late but a quick fire of 27 off 12 balls helped seal the win against DD. Even down the order, the likes of Shakib Al Hasan and Wriddhiman Saha, provide SRH plenty of depth in batting.

Bowling line-up

The bowling of SRH has to be one of the best in IPL 2018. Our pick of the lot is Rashid Khan. The young spinner has been one of the best bowlers of IPL 11. A front-runner of the purple cap with 12 wickets, he is yet to disappoint. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma and Siddarth Kaul complete this formidable bowling lineup. This lot has restricted opponents from scoring big and has proven effective when defending low totals.

The bowling will play a vital role to restrict the giants of RCB batting lineup. Rashid Khan and Siddarth Kaul will prove valuable on the slow pitch.

Predicted Playing XI

Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey, Alex Hales, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Trent Boult, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

A much talked about the team before the start of IPL 2018, RCB has faltered badly. With three wins from nine games, it will be a grueling task for the men in red to get to the playoffs. The much-famed batting line-up fell like dominoes against CSK. The entire middle order failed to get in the doubles as RCB’s chances kept going down. RCB have to win this at all costs. Virat Kohli, Brendon McCullum, and AB de Villiers will have to deliver with the bat to score an imposing total. The young Mandeep Singh and Colin de Grandhomme will have to fare better this time around. If the big three again fail to stand, it will be quite difficult for Royal Challengers Bangalore to win this match.

Bowling Line-up & Key Players

RCB’s weakest link is their bowling attack. Even with promising players like Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal, the bowlers have failed to restrict batsmen. Umesh Yadav, though bowling brilliantly against CSK did not get help from his teammates. The fielding also has been somewhat of a down point for RCB. The missed catches and failing to stop the quick runs have allowed the opposition to sneak runs.


Kohli, Villiers, and McCullum will have to try and score big on a sluggish pitch against a dangerous bowling attack. The other bowlers also have to chip in to help Yadav restrict SRH.

Predicted Playing XI

Parthiv Patel, Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli, Mandeep Singh, AB de Villiers, Washington Sundar, Tim Southee, Colin de Grandhomme, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal.
