Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Betting Tips

Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the match six of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 on Wednesday.

The home team in this fixture will be coming in the contest hoping to improve their performance after suffering a 10-run defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders in their season opener at the same venue on Sunday.

On the other hand, RCB’s team management will be hoping that their players will continue the momentum they have managed to get after registering an impressive two-wicket win against defending champions Mumbai Indian on the opening day of the competition.

Both teams have a pretty close record when it comes to head-to-head in the history of the India’s cash-rich T20 competition where Hyderabad secured 10 win in 17 outings compared to Royal Challengers’ seven victories.

During the three meetings which took place in the 2020 edition of the IPL, the Sunrisers came out on top on two occasions (by five and six wickets) whereas RCB registered a win in one match by 10 runs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form and Team news:

Sunrisers Hyderabad will be coming in the match low-on-confidence, largely because of producing a rather below-par batting performance in the match against KKR where in very good conditions and despite losing just five wickets, they did not manage to chase down the target of 188.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping that the players will rectify their mistakes and produce a much better show on Wednesday against a tough opponent like RCB.

In the batting department, Sunrisers will be relying heavily on the likes of captain David Warner, in-form Manish Pandey, England’s star wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow and Afghanistan’s veteran all-rounder Mohammad Nabi to score bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of star leg-spinner Rashid Khan and pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma to produce timely breakthroughs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form and Team News:

After producing a nearly perfect performance against the defending champions, the Royal Challengers Bangalore are unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI.

All-rounder Daniel Sams remain unlikely to be available to become the part of the starting XI as he continues his recovery after testing positive for coronavirus on April 5.

In the batting department, the team will be relying heavily on the likes of captain Virat Kohli, former South Africa’s skipper AB de Villiers, young opening batsman Devdutt Padikkal and explosive Australia’s all-rounder Glenn Maxwell to score bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Kyle Jamieson, Navdeep Saini along with the spin duo of Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams are coming in the match with a contrasting form therefore it is very hard to predict an outright winner.

On paper, both sides have a very balanced squad who can compete in any conditions. However, in terms of head-to-head record, Sunrisers have a slight advantage.

Therefore, looking at that, the prediction is for Warner-led Hyderabad to win the match on Wednesday and open their account in this year’s IPL.

Tip 1: Jonny Bairstow’s impressive numbers against RCB in the IPL

In the opening fixture, Jonny Bairstow showcased excellent form with the bat and notched up a fluent half-century for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Bairstow will take heart from the fact that he holds excellent record against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.

In two matches played against RCB, Bairstow has accumulated 175 runs at an average of 87.50 with one century and one half-century. Given his rich vein of form with the bat this season, we are expecting Jonny Bairstow to score 35 runs or more against [email protected].

Tip 2: AB De Villiers will eye a big innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad

Wicket-keeper batsman, AB De Villiers put in excellent match-winning performance to help Royal Challengers Bangalore overcome Mumbai Indians in a close game. He played exceedingly well and finished the innings with the top-score of 48 runs off 27 balls with the help of four boundaries and two sixes.

Against Sunrisers Hyderabad, AB De Villiers has put in decent numbers with the bat. In 16 matches played, De Villiers has scored 520 runs at a strike rate of 157.20, which includes five half-centuries to his name.

Given his excellent form with the bat in the opening fixture, we are expecting AB De Villiers to score 30 runs or more against [email protected]


Expect Sunrisers Hyderabad to edge past Royal Challengers Bangalore and register their first win of the season.
