RCB vs SRH Dream11 Team Prediction of IPL 2019: Preview | Marcus Stoinis joins Aussie camp
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad will collide at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore tomorrow to play their last league match. We will provide Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the RCB vs SRH match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are out of race for playoffs and are on the bottom of points table with four wins and eight losses. Their last match against Rajasthan Royals was washed out due to rain. A 5-over contest was played between two teams. After a quick 7-ball 25 from Kohli, RCB failed to capitalise and were limping on 62/7 in 5 overs. Defending the target, Pace trio of Saini-Umesh-Khejroliya failed to stop runflow and were on path to another loss but ultimately re-arrival of rain ended the encounter in a no result. RCB will come all guns blazing to win their last league match and end IPL’19 with some joy for their fans.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are yet to qualify for playoffs and are fourth on points table with six wins in thirteen matches. They lost their last match against Mumbai Indians unluckily in a super over. Bowling first, Khaleel Ahmed took brilliant three-wicket haul to restrict Mumbai at 162. Nabi, Bhuvi and Rashid also bowled economically. Chasing the target, Manish Pandey single-handedly took the team close to target and was able to tie the scores. He scored brilliant knock of 71* runs in 47 balls and was supported by Nabi and Saha. In super over, SRH could only score 8 runs which was later chased easily. KKR are competing hard for the fourth spot and Hyderabad will be determined to defeat RCB and keep their qualification chances intact.
