Sunrisers Hyderabad will be taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator having qualified by defeating the three of the top four league phase teams in their last three matches. Bangalore, on the other hand, is currently on a 4-match losing streak and hope to convert it into a 3-match winning spree for achieving their maiden title. Injuries to the pacers are likely to affect the combination of RCB while Sunrisers have done well to overcome from regular injury blows they suffered in the ongoing tournament.
