As Sunrisers Hyderabad takes on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the clash of the two strong South Indian teams, it is only fitting that the match will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Both the teams have some fantastic players in their mix, but it is important to study their recent form if you are someone who is looking to gain some fantasy points.
Here are the top three fantasy picks for the match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore:
1. Rashid Khan
There is a reason why the Afghanistan spinner is regarded as one of the best bowlers in the T20 format. He has been quite impressive in the IPL. In the previous match, he bowled a good spell of 2 for 24 from his four overs, despite the other bowlers going for runs.
Considering how Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, and Virat Kohli have struggled at times against Rashid, it seems that he could be a top pick for this game. On top of that, the Chennai track suits spinners a lot, and a quality spinner like Rashid will surely enjoy bowling on this track.
2 Virat Kohli
There are some things about Virat Kohli which undoubtedly make him one of the best in the world in T20 cricket. One of those factors is his consistency. Every time he gets a low score, he backs that up with another big score. Considering that he has had a quiet start to the IPL 2021 season, we could see him in a different mode against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Apart from this, it is worth noting that Kohli was in tremendous form coming into this tournament. RCB captain scored 231 runs in five innings against England in a recent T20I series. He had scored three unbeaten fifties in the series.
3. David Warner
The fact that Sunrisers Hyderabad has qualified for the playoffs in each of the seasons since 2016, has a lot to do with how David Warner has batted. Since his arrival at the franchise in 2014, he has held their batting together scoring more than 500 runs in every season.
Twice he has scored 600 while once he ended with more than 800 runs as well. He had failed in the previous match, but it is difficult to keep Warner quiet for long. He will definitely look to bounce back and produce a good knock for his side in this upcoming match.
