It is going to be a massive game between the Kane’s Orange Army against Virat’s Bold Army.
Today’s Match prediction for RCB vs SRH:-
The Pitch report for M Chinnaswamy is moreover batting friendly than a bowling pitch so whoever wins the toss would want to bat first to put a 200+ score to defend easily in the 2nd innings.

Toss Predictions for RCB vs SRH:
If RCB bats first (predicted score: 170-190)
Looking at the batting line-up of Bangalore right from the start they will aim to go after the opposition bowlers as they have big hitters till No.7 and the key innings will be played in the middle-order by De Villiers and Stoinis Our Ipl match predictions suggest that someone like Marcus Stoinis who can come to bat at 6 can play a big inning which can add handful runs to the team. Death overs will be crucial and could change the course and match prediction for RCB vs SRH.
If SRH bats first (predicted score: 180-210):
There will be wicketkeeper opening either with Warner, or Guptill. And Hyderabad’s batting formation looks strong till Bhuvneshwar Kumar so they can create a thunderstorm in Chinnaswamy Stadium. Hyderabad’s all foreign Batsmen are capable to produce large innings with big runs on the board. We Predict Kane Williamson to be the highest run-scorer in the side.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:-
The team has plenty of foreign player choices to make, like the all-rounder choice between Marcus Stoinis and De Grandhomm, they can play anyone out of them. There will also be an option among Tim Southee and Nathan Coulter-Nile. Parthiv Patel will be the first choice wicketkeeper and is expected to open with skipper Virat Kohli.
RCB Predicted Playing XI:-
Parthiv Patel, Kohli, De Villiers, Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Stoinis, Washington Sundar, Southee, Siraj, Umesh, Chahal.
The team will be a completely new side this year to watch out as they will be without their opener Shikhar Dhawan and Warner and Bairstow and Warner both have returned for back home for their world cup preparation. SRH looks very strong with all it’s position be it batting, bowling, all-rounders they have plenty of it. Saha will continue o open the batting along side Guptil. Vijay Shanker, Shahbaz Nadeem and Abhishek Sharma were swapped with Shikhar Dhawan.
Srh predicted playing XI:-
Guptil, Saha, Williamson, Pandey, Nabi, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid, Bhuvneshwar, Kaul, Sandeep, Khaleel Ahmed.
Top 3 Predicted Player’s:
Saha: He has been in a very good form in all the matches he has played yet in the absense of David Warner and has got the team to a great start in the PowerPlay.
Pandey: He played an amazing knock in the last match against MI by making the match a tie. However his efforts went in vein as they couldnt win the super over. But his consistency is a great need for the team in today’s match.
Nabi: The team will require early wickets and he is the only player who can provided it for the team. He will be the key bowler to take down the left handlers of the opposition side.
Key Player Battles:-
Kohli vs Williamson:
The clash of these two skippers will always be continued whether they play against each other in IPL or at International level, both of them are overrated and strength of their team’s batting unit. Last year Kane was the Orange Cap holder and this year again it will be doubt as both will be the contender for the Orange Cap fight. We predict Kohli will score more runs than Williamson in the match.
Bhuvneshwar vs Umesh
Both the bowlers are spearheads and are expected to open the attacks for their respective teams. It will be Bhuvi’s swings vs Umesh’s length and their target will be each other’s Captains and we Predict Umesh to get more wickets in the battle.
