In the 13th season of IPL, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Abu Dhabi on Friday. For both of the teams, this will be done and die match. Talking about both team’s form, the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who have overcome tough challenges and made a place in the playoffs, seems to be riding on high spirits. Whereas RCB has lost four consecutive matches. This match will be played from 7.30 pm.
No Further Chance if Team Loses Today
The team that losses in the eliminator match will be eliminated from the tournament, while the winning team will face Delhi Capitals (DC) on November 8 in Qualifier-2. That is, by winning Qualifier-2, the team will enter the finals, where they will face Mumbai Indians (MI). Mumbai has already gone in final matches after defeating DC by 57 runs. The final will be played in Dubai on 10 November.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Has Strong Stand
After a slow start to the tournament, Sunrisers made a strong performance in the second wave to secure the position in play-offs by winning three consecutive matches. Sunrisers defeated Delhi Capitals, RCB, and topped Mumbai Indians in the last three matches. In the last match of ‘Do or Die‘, they have high spirits after beating Mumbai Indians by 10 wickets. The credit goes to the early pair of David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha. Both shared 107 runs against Delhi and 151 runs against Mumbai.
Once Again, SRH will Have High Expectation with Key Player Captain Warner and Saha
Warner has so far scored 529 runs in 14 matches, while Saha proved that he had missed the team management by scoring 184 runs in the last three matches. Warner and Saha performed so well where star player Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, and Jason Holder did nothing so good.
In bowling, Sunrisers have in-form bowlers like Sandeep Sharma, Holder, Shahbaz Nadeem, T Natarajan and Rashid Khan. Sandeep has done well in the power play and Natarajan has done well in the death overs. Rashid has proved to be quite economical in the middle overs.
RCB in Eliminator after Losing Four Consecutive Matches
On the other hand, RCB will have to improve its performance significantly. The team’s confidence must have been low after losing four consecutive matches. However, RCB has turned the wave before, and this time also, Captain Kohli will expect good performance from his players. RCB batsmen could not have met expectations against Delhi.
