Confident after registering their first win of the season earlier this week, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be looking to continue their winning run when they take on struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad in the eleventh game of this season. Both the teams started their campaign this year with a loss but while the SRH have returned to winning ways, the Royal Challengers have still not.
In their previous game, the Sunrisers thrashed Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by 5 wickets to open their campaign. Barring Rashid Khan, the Sunrisers bowlers were once hit all around the park as the Royals posted a daunting total of 198 for 2. However, the Sunrisers led by David Warner, made a mockery of the total, chasing it down with an over remaining. Warner set the tone by slamming 69 and sharing a century-plus stand with Jonny Bairstow before the other batsmen did their jobs.
RCB, on the other hand, lost a thriller against Mumbai Indians. The Virat Kohli-led side fell short by 6 runs while chasing 188. They needed just 41 runs from the last four overs. With AB de Villiers on the crease along with Shimron Hetmyer, it looked like the Royal Challengers would register their first win of the season. However, Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga came up with a fine display of fast-bowling to defend the total. Malinga had 17 runs to defend in the final over and he conceded just 10 despite being hit for a six on the very first ball. The game, however, could have had a different result if umpire S Ravi had noticed Malinga overstepping on the final ball.
As far as the stats are concerned, the RCB would start the game on the backfoot. The Bangalore-based outfit has won only two out their nine matches at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. The win percentage of 22.2 is their joint-worst for the current away venues.
How will be the weather:
According to AccuWeather, the fans can expect a full game of cricket without any natural interruptions whatsoever. There is no prediction of rain while the temperature will be slightly above 30 degree Celsius when the game starts. However, the temperature will gradually decrease as the game wears on.
