How do the teams stack up?

Royal Challengers Bangalore

The Royal Challengers Bangalore squad is likely to remain unchanged after a massive victory against KXIP. Virat Kohli will continue to open the innings with Parthiv Patel as he has performed well batting at that slot. Ab de Villiers, Mandeep Singh and Sarfraz Khan will brace the middle order while Colin de Grandhomme will be RCB’s finisher. RCB’s bowlers who were also-rans since the start of the tournament were phenomenal with the ball in their last game. The Royal Challengers will not be interested in altering the playing XI, especially after their colossal victory

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Alex Hales hasn’t been a star striker for the Sunrisers as expected. Hence, the SRH squad might bring in the all-rounder, Carlos Brathwaite into the playing XI. Thus, there is a possibility of promoting Shreevats Goswami up the order. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar doesn’t seem to give his 100%, so Basil Thampi could be brought in so that B Kumar will buckle down for the playoffs. Shakib Al Hasan and Siddharth Kaul conceded a lot of runs in the last match and should amend their inadequacies.
