SRH vs RCB Preview:
For four years in a row now starting from 2016, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have been making it to the playoffs of the IPL. The team from Hyderabad has been one of the most consistent and will like to carry the streak forward into 2020 as well. At the same time, there are a few changes in the leadership group too. While David Warner is back as the captain, Trevor Bayliss has replaced Tom Moody as the Head Coach.
The team would hope that they would start off on a winning note against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. In the last three seasons, RCB finished 8th, 6th and 8th on the points table respectively. They look strong on paper every year but haven’t been able to convert that into results. RCB has also got a new Head Coach in the form of Simon Katich. Instead of leaving it for too late, the Bengaluru team will want to get some wins under their belt early on.

SRH vs RCB Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:
David Warner had a few issues with his form in the series against England. But he is a different beast in the IPL. In the last season, he scored 692 runs in 12 games.
Virat Kohli has been one of the most consistent performers for RCB in the last few years. He scored 464 runs in 14 games in IPL 2019.
AB de Villiers mustered 442 runs in 13 games last season at a strike rate of 154.
Rashid Khan picked up 17 wickets in 15 games last year while maintaining an economy rate of 6.28.
Jonny Bairstow is coming off a wonderful century against Australia and is likely to draw confidence from that knock. He scored 445 runs in 10 games last year.
