IPL 2019: RCB vs SRH Preview Dream11. Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview Dream11 Prediction

Pride vs playoffs opportunity.

That is what it has got to for Royal Challengers Bangalore. It has been another season of what-ifs, paying the price for an awful start to IPL 2019. Ahead of a season of hope, where the question was posed whether this could be their time, familiar failings have hurt Virat Kohli’s men. Now, they can be of serious nuisance value, given they will have a major say of who the final team will be to make the playoffs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad pushed MI all the way in one of the games of the tournament. David Warner left for Australia, but the bowlers and Manish Pandey in particular stood up to nearly seal their playoffs place. Another big effort today will likely be too much for RCB to handle, and given their strong NRR, their playoffs place could very well be sealed with a win. Can SRH hold their nerve, especially if RR win their game against DC?

Key to a RCB win

RCB’s batting has again, unsurprisingly, rested a lot on Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. However, Parthiv Patel has had a fine season, and RCB will be hoping he signs off on a positive note. He, Kohli and de Villiers as the top three can turn up the heat on an SRH side that needs to win. This is especially important now that Marcus Stoinis has left for Australia, so RCB need a platform for the middle order to play off. Surely it is the time to give Shimron Hetmyer a game, and if so, can he end a very disappointing campaign on a high?

Also, RCB need a consistent bowling performance. They haven’t had it in IPL 2019, coming close only when Dale Steyn was on board. While Kane Williamson hasn’t fired yet for SRH, he will be key wicket along with the mighty dangerous Manish Pandey. However, RCB need to start well against Martin Guptill, who looked very promising vs MI, and Wriddhiman Saha, who can provide that important anchor role at the top. Who will it be to step up in the last game? Will it be Umesh Yadav in the powerplay, backed up by Yuzvendra Chahal in the middle overs then Navdeep Saini at the death?

Key to a SRH win

If RR win, then it’s must win for SRH. However, SRH need to approaching this game with an all-guns-blazing mentality, given they won’t want to rely on in-form KKR to lose vs MI if RR end up losing today. So, the big question is who will support Manish Pandey? This was a question when Warner and Bairstow were on fire and the middle order wasn’t, so the onus is on the top four to deliver the goods. Martin Guptill will be good for the hit out last time out, and there is no better time for Kane Williamson to arrive to the party. Also, Vijay Shankar, who is having a disappointing time of late, needs to contribute to the cause. Can SRH win all stages of the innings against RCB’s inconsistent bowling?

Also, there was plenty to like about SRH’s bowling in Mumbai. They kept Hardik Pandya quiet, and kept fighting to restrict MI in the region of 160. The same fight and desire is required against a side possessing two of the finest limited overs players ever. If SRH can make inroads into RCB’s top four, it sets the game up beautifully. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and wicket-taker Khaleel Ahmed will be vital to the cause, along with Rashid Khan who can put more pressure on RCB’s middle order. Keep an eye out also for Mohammad Nabi, who can provide the crucial balance SRH need in a crunch game.

Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 13, RCB 5, SRH 8. SRH have won four of the last five matches between the sides.
  • SRH thrashed RCB by 118 runs earlier in IPL 2019. But, there will be no Warner or Bairstow, who both scored centuries. Can RCB get the ultimate revenge?
  • Parthiv Patel will play his 200th T20 match.

Match Prediction

You’d think this would be an easy game to pick, but it isn’t!

Often, the team with pressure on its shoulders can crumble, with the other shining through.

However, even though I picked KXIP to finish last in IPL 2019, I think it will be RCB who finish there. SRH have plenty to play for, and their effort vs MI will hold them in good stead here.
