SRH vs RCB IPL 2022: This is the second clash of Hyderabad and Bangalore in this season. In the first match, Hyderabad won easily by beating Bangalore for just 68 runs.
IPL 2022 (IPL 2022) The last round of the league stage has started. Now there are few matches left to clear the picture of playoff and still many teams remain in this competition. Two such teams will face each other on Sunday 8 May at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore stuck in the middle of the points table (SRH vs RCB) Will clash in this match. Both teams will try to take the next step towards the playoffs by winning this match. However, which players of both the teams (SRH vs RCB Playing XI Prediction) But the picture of this match will be decided by the bet.
First thing about Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team, captained by Faf du Plessis, has made very few changes in the current season and has maintained consistency in the playing XI without getting affected much by the outcome of the match. After a good start in the season, Bangalore had three consecutive defeats. Then in the last match, this team returned to the winning path by defeating Chennai Super Kings and strengthened its position.
Siraj will be discharged from the team?
The team’s performance against CSK was good in more or less every department. Although Virat Kohli is still not scoring runs openly, but his partnership with Faf du Plessis in the powerplay was good. For the team at the moment, the most fast bowler is the form of Mohammad Siraj, who is proving to be expensive in the powerplay and is not able to get wickets. Whether the team will take any decision regarding him, most of the eyes will be on it. However, there is a possibility that Siraj will get another chance and then a change will be considered. That is, Bangalore will be seen landing with the same team, provided there is no fitness issue.
Will the bowler who terrified RCB get a chance?
There are many problems before Hyderabad. Captain Kane Williamson is failing continuously and the middle order is under pressure again and again. The team has faced defeat in three consecutive matches and in this its considered strong bowling has really disappointed. Only Bhuvneshwar Kumar has proved effective for the team. Umran Malik’s speed has increased in the last few matches, but during this time he has also been hit a lot. In such a situation, the team needs to perform better. SRH will expect T Natarajan and Washington Sundar to be fit and ready to play for this match. If they return, changes are possible.
By the way, eyes will also be on whether left-arm pacer Marco Yansson, who was out of the last match after a poor performance in the last few matches, gets a place or not. In the previous clash of both the teams, Bangalore was reduced to just 68 runs and one of the reasons was Yanson’s first over, in which 3 wickets including Duplessi and Kohli had fallen.
