RCB vs SRH Preview
Coming into this match, both the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Sunrisers Hyderabad are in great form. RVB has won its last two games and is currently ranked second in the IPL 2022 rankings with five victories from seven games. SRH dropped its first two games, then won the following four! It is now barely outside the top four, but a win here would put it in a strong position going ahead.
The IPL betting sites all have RCB as the favourite to win this match. Keep in mind that SRH was the underdog in each of its previous four games!

Royal Challengers Banglore
RCB’s batting is in disarray, but it appears that their strategy of pursuing bowlers in the auction is paying off. Josh Hazelwood has been a fantastic signing and one of the main reasons for RCB’s recent success in close games.
He was the best of the bowlers in the previous match, taking four wickets.
RCB boasts a very good bowling squad, with Harshal Patel, Wanindu Hasaranga, Mohammad Siraj, and some useful all-rounders. In this regard, we believe they are superior to SRH. Their bowlers are also a good match for the RCB batsmen.
You could put your money on Josh Hazelwood to repeat as the best bowler, or maybe Wanindu Hasaranga as a long shot.
Batting is an area that RCB needs to improve. In the top three, Anuj Rawat and Virat Kohli are fighting for runs. Faf du Plessis’ 96 in the previous match demonstrated how essential he is to the whole batting effort, but more from the other batsmen is required.
Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik, Shahbaz Ahmed, and even Suyash Prabhudesai add to the lineup’s depth. It’s a little frightening to think that we haven’t seen the best of RCB’s batting yet. If some of the club’s big guns start hitting with more consistency, the team might be very dominant.
SRH will be confident in their ability to win this match. Following all, not many people gave it a chance after the auction or the rocky start to the IPL 2022 season, but they’re proving everyone wrong. It’s not by chance that we’ve won four games in a row. The preceding two victories were also achieved without the presence of Washington Sundar. Because his injury was minimal, he was able to participate in this game.
SRH’s bowling has also been a strength. T Natarajan and Bhvaneshwar Kumar are both picking up wickets, and Umran Malik is the enforcer in the middle overs. In Macro Jansen, they appear to have found a pretty reliable bowler, however we believe he may be targeted.
The intermediate order for SRH has also been on fire. Aiden Markram appears to be maturing into a world-class finisher, while Rahul Tripathi is hitting superbly. With Nicholas Pooran’s big-hitting power on display, SRH’s batting isn’t far behind RCB’s.
The key for SRH will be to continue to attack while keeping a lack of depth in mind. As SRH supporters, pitting Pooran and Markram against mysterious spin isn’t something we’re looking forward to!
