It has been another disappointing outing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and though Virat Kohli’s men still have an outside chance to make the playoffs, their inconsistent form will not make their supports too excited for the remaining five games.
On Monday, May 7, RCB will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), who have been in a super form this year with 7 wins out of 9 games and a win in this match to be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium (RGICS), Hyderabad, would see the Sunrisers qualify for the playoffs with quite a few encounters remaining.
RCB, on the other hand, have just 6 points from 9 games and are languishing at No. 6 position of the points table. RCB and SRH have played 11 times in the IPL, including the final of the 2016 edition, with SRH winning 6 and RCB 4. One match was washed out in rain in 2017.
David Warner, SRH’s regular captain who missed this year’s IPL after getting banned over a ball-tampering incident in South Africa during the recent Test series, has always played well against RCB, winning the most number of man of the match awards (3) in the games between the two sides till date.
