RCB vs SRH Match Preview – The 54th match of IPL 2019 will be played tonight at 08:00 PM local time.
The Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore is all set to witness an interesting encounter tonight when the home side RCB will be challenged by the visitors, Sunrisers Hyderabad.
This year was also unlucky for the Royal Challengers and their fans as the team has been knocked out of this season of IPL. Despite once losing 7 games in a row, the Virat Kohli-led RCB shown some potential and came back in the competition by winning 4 out of the 5 matches.
However, with their defeat against the Delhi Capitals and a rain-interrupted draw against the Rajasthan Royals, their chances to qualify for the playoffs are completely over.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is still in the race of playoff’s qualification having 12 points in 13 matches.
The Orange Army lost its previous game against the Mumbai Indians in an exciting super-over match. Now, they’ll have to win both of their remaining games and that too with higher net run-rate so as to grab that 4th position in the playoffs.
Last time when both these team faced each other in this season, SRH defeated RCB by 118 runs.
Now, it will be very interesting to see whether SRH defeat RCB again tonight to keep their qualification hopes alive, or RCB will take their revenge and stop the Orange Army to qualify for the playoffs.
