The wait is over King Kohli’s fans as his team Royal Challengers Bangalore looks ready to go against David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad. The venue is yet again, The Dubai International Stadium where KXIP & DC have just left a super over the clash, the 1st of this year’s Indian T20 season. While both sides look balanced, the concerns of RCB remain in their side’s bowling department even though Chris Morris will add some depth to that. Chahal & Morris will have a role to play if they want to distraught the charge led by Warner & Bairstow.

SRH vs RCB Head To Head

On this venue, SRH has won both their matches while RCB has won & lost 1 each.

SRH vs RCB: What to Look Forward to

Virat Kohli believes this is the most balanced he has ever felt in his side and he’s looking ready to go berserk as was observed in the nets. He is also positive about the bowling unit which has always been a problem for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The likes of Chris Morris will add depth to the bowling department and Yuzvendra Chahal will have a huge role to play in this edition of the Indian T20 season.

Sunrisers have a strong bowling unit especially when it comes to spin with Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi in the hut. Kane Williamson might just be warming up the bench as David Warner and Jonny Bairstow will take the opening slot. Rashid Khan will be a huge challenge for the RCB to go through because of the support from the pitch so practically, it is going to be a Rashid vs Chahal kind of a match.

Young guns like Devdutt Padikkal, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad might just get a game and get a chance to prove their mettle in this fixture as it comes with a great opportunity of showcasing their talent in the most quality T20 tournament in the world. 

SRH vs RCB: The Gameplay

As it happened last night at this venue, there is something both for the batsman and the bowlers. Pacers can utilise their slower ones while its a spinners paradise like most grounds in the UAE. So, we’re expecting SRH to win the toss, put RCB to bat and defend a total with the likes of Rashid Khan. However, we are backing RCB to set a par score with a late flyer from someone like Moeen Ali & eventually the score would be too good for Sunrisers if Chahal gets going and gets the support from Morris.
