We’re just a week into the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League, and we’ve already seen three thrilling matches. Royal Challengers Bangalore began their season with a last-ball victory over Mumbai Indians. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other side, came within 10 runs of winning the match.

The two teams will now face off in the sixth IPL match, which will take place on the evening of April 14th at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium. The Sunrisers have a better record than the Royals Challengers in the past, but with a fresh look and a victory under their belt, RCB will be full of trust. We anticipate that, like the other matches, this one will go down to the wire.



The Sunrisers were able to narrow the margin of loss in their first match thanks to a strong second half result, but they still have a lot of work to do in the second match. In the first match, their variations and batting order seemed to be off, and this would be scrutinised in the upcoming match.

Despite the fact that they lost the contest, there were several things to take away from their encounter with KKR. Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey may be the two players to watch for the Sunrisers in the coming months, based on their recent performances. Having said that, they were both unable to accelerate when they needed to, and SRH will consider promoting Abdul Samad as a pinch hitter in the future.

David Warner was sacked on the cheap, but neither the management nor Warner are concerned. He received a peach of a delivery and is supposed to rebound strongly in the next contest. The Sunrisers’ batting is strong because they bat deep, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar at number nine. Furthermore, they have a fantastic bowling unit, which we anticipate improving as the tournament continues.

It was strange to see Jonny Bairstow bat in the middle order in the first match, given that Kane Williamson was available to do so. They are unlikely to make a move right now, but if things don’t go well, Williamson might be called into the side sooner rather than later. Overall, the Sunrisers are a good team, and if they can find a way to address the middle-lack order’s of strength, they would be difficult to beat.


The Royal Challengers Bangalore’s victory over Mumbai Indians summed up the IPL’s history. They’ve always got a brilliant side of them, and they’ve always been volatile, but they’ve never lived up to the potential they’ve shown on paper. In the previous match, they did the same thing: they still looked ahead in their chase, but tried to fuck things up before finally crossing the line in the last over.

Beating Mumbai Indians has never been easy in the tournament’s history, and RCB’s victory can only boost their morale. Glenn Maxwell gave their innings a boost, and Kyle Jamieson bowled wonderfully both at the end and at the start of Mumbai’s innings, justifying their high auction prices.

The positive news for the Challengers is that they now seem to be more evenly matched than they did last season. Harshal Patel and Kyle Jamieson’s inclusion adds depth to their batting order without detracting from their bowling. Also, since Glenn Maxwell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dan Christian, and Washington Sundar can all roll their arm, Virat Kohli has a lot of choices with the ball. However, Yuzvendra Chahal’s form would be a major concern, as it has the potential to derail RCB’s plans if not tackled quickly.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore batting unit has always been solid, and with the inclusion of Glenn Maxwell this year, it has only grown in stature. We expect Devdutt Padikkal to return at the top of the order in the second match, further strengthening their batting unit. Many of their stalwarts have been in fine shape, and getting past them would take a massive effort.


Despite the fact that the two teams have seen different outcomes in their previous matches, this is a game of great significance for both sides. The Royals Challengers Bangalore would like to build on their recent success by winning their second game in a row. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, will be eager to get their season started. Both teams are going to come out firing, and the team that can keep its nerves the most will definitely win. When comparing the two teams, Royal Challengers Bangalore seems to be marginally more composed, with seasoned players in their roster. As a result, we have them as our favourite to win the sixth IPL match.
