After their loss against Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, in the 62nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are out of the Playoffs race. With four victories and eight losses in 12 matches, SRH are in the ninth position on the points table and now they will play for pride in the remaining two matches and conclude their campaign on a positive note.

Their next assignment will be against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, in Hyderabad. In their den, they will look to give their best against the Faf du Plessis-led side and bring cheers to the faces of their supporters. Currently, RCB are targeting a spot in the playoffs but Aiden Markram and his boys will endeavour to spoil the chances of the 2016 IPL runners-up.

Here's Sunrisers Hyderabad's (SRH) predicted XI against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB):

Openers: Anmolpreet Singh and Abhishek Sharma

Anmolpreet Singh got four games from his team but couldn’t deliver anything solid to his team. In the previous game, he featured in the squad as an Impact Player but failed to justify his role, falling to Mohammed Shami on five runs (four deliveries) in the first over. 

Abhishek Sharma has also failed to perform up to the expectations as the 22-year-old has racked up only 215 runs in 10 matches at a dismal average of 21.50. Once in a blue moon, he delivers an impactful knock to his team, and then his struggle continues in the majority of games. However, against RCB, he will have to be at his best to fetch a win for his team.

Middle-Order: Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, and Heinrich Klaasen

 This season, Rahul Tripathi is the second-highest run-scorer for Sunrisers with 258 runs in 12 matches at a strike rate of 128.35. In the upcoming games, he will strive to utilise his experience and talent to outclass SRH’s opponents.

As a captain, Aiden Markram’s responsibility was to set a standard with his bat for other players but the Protea himself is struggling to be among the runs. So far, he has amassed only 217 runs in 11 matches at a below-par strike rate of 127.64. However, forgetting his previous failures, the 28-year-old will have to lead his side from the front against Challengers. 

Heinrich Klaasen has served his team excellently with his bat. Piling up 326 runs in nine innings of 10 matches at a brilliant strike rate of 172.48, he is currently the leading run-getter for the Orange Army, this season. In the next two games against quality teams, he will be expected to produce quality knocks from his bat.

All-rounders: Abdul Samad and Marco Jansen

Throughout the tournament, Abdul Samad has struggled to be efficient for his franchise. Against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), he displayed confidence with his bat, and against RCB in Hyderabad, he will back himself to bolster his team with batting exploits.

Marco Jansen has performed horrendously with the ball in the competition as the Protea is not only failing to provide breakthroughs to his team but also struggling to contain the flow of runs. The pacer has picked up 10 wickets in eight matches at an economy of 9.88.

 Bowlers: Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Fazalhaq Farooqui, and Umran Malik

Bhuvneshwar Kumar took the second fifer of his IPL career against the Titans. In the losing cause, the veteran grabbed the attention for his 5/30 figures. However, his overall performance in the league doesn’t match his reputation as he has taken 14 wickets in 12 matches at an economy of 8.16. Against Challengers, his task will be to carry his form forward from the previous match.

Mayank Markande has played his part efficiently in a majority of games in this competition, but in the last two matches, he is looking out of colour. In the upcoming game against the quality side, he will look forward to being confident and notching up some wickets with his leg-break bowling. 

Fazalhaq Farooqui has appeared in four games for his team, in which he has hunted only four batters at an expensive economy of 8.77. The Afghan pacer will have to support Bhuvneshwar and Jansen to help his team get desired outcomes in the remaining couple of matches. 

Umran Malik might make it to the playing XI against RCB and if that happens, he will have to be disciplined with the ball, this time, as the speedster has delivered disastrous bowling shows to his team in the contest he appeared. Fetching only five wickets in seven matches at a terrible economy of 10.35, he has failed to fortify his team’s bowling unit.

 Sunrisers Hyderabad's (SRH) Probable Playing XI:

Anmolpreet Singh, Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram (captain), Heinrich Klaasen (wicketkeeper), Abdul Samad, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Fazalhaq Farooqi and Umran Malik

Sunrisers Hyderabad's (SRH) Probable Impact Players:

Sanvir Singh, T Natarajan, Kartik Tyagi, Vivrant Sharma, and Nitish Kumar Reddy
