The table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 39th game of this IPL edition. The Hyderabad based franchise are on a four-game winning streak and will be confident to make it five with their favorable home conditions. With the playoffs hope fading away, RCB must win all their remaining games to remain in the race for a top-four spot and they have to play at their maximum potential to beat their opponents tonight. It is going to be interesting to see how the star-studded batting unit of RCB tackle the best bowling unit of this IPL and overcome their first hurdle in the race for the playoff spot.
The average score in the first innings is 150, this season.
SRH have lost only one game out of the five played here, in this edition.
SRH bowlers have taken 35 wickets in 5 games, averaging 7 per game.

Hyderabad pitch has been a bowling friendly one and hence try to go with balanced number of batsmen and bowlers.
Rashid Khan can prove to be a unique and worthy captain choice. The Afghan spinner has been performing exceptionally well and is picking around 2-3 wickets constantly with ease.
