SRH vs RCB: The Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in an IPL 2021 match at the M A Chidambaram Stadium. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) made a terrific start to the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) after they beat defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) by two wickets in Chennai. The game was such a thriller and treat for the IPL fans.
Not many changes are expected from Virat Kohli-led side. Devdutt Padikkal, who recovered from Covid-19 said he has recovered from the coronavirus but it is unlikely that he will pair with Virat Kohli at the top in Wednesday’s fixture. This is a clear indication that the team is bounded to introduce Washington Sundar as opener, perhaps, for another game before Devdutt joins the team.
In another developments, one can see Mohammed Azharuddeen replacing Rajat Patidar.
Also, Adam Zampa had completed his mandatory quarantine and is expected to available for this match. He is expected to be replace Dan Christian in the next match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, didn’t make a great start to the tournament, losing to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 10 runs at the Chepauk itself.
David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha, who opened the innings for SRH in last match, failed to provide a good start as both of them departed early. They might give another chance for the pair, or they have the option of rejoining Warner with Jonny Bairstow, who made a fifty while batting in the middle-order.
However, Kane Williamson’s availability in this match is still under doubt as coach Trevor Bayliss had said the Kiwi would require some more time to regain full match fitness. Sandeep Sharma, who conceded 35 runs in the previous match might get another chance to set himself unless the SRH wants to add another dimension through left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed.
