Once sitting at the last berth in the league table, Royal Challengers Bangalore have gained the momentum at the right moment. They now need to win their remaining two matches with good run rate and can grab a spot in the first half of the points table. However, it won’t be that easy as it sounds. They have to lock horns with the table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad tomorrow (May 17) at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore for the 51st fixture. The clash will begin at 08:00 PM Local.
Bangalore has won its last two encounters and would be looking to go with the flow and grab another win. However, let’s see if they can do it or it will be the end of their part in the tournament.
So, let’s move forwards to RCB vs SRH team news and RCB vs SRH dream11 prediction.
There is no reason for RCB to tinker the winning combination unless there are any forced changes.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost to Chennai Super Kings after 6 consecutive wins and are expected to remain the same. The form of M Pandey is a concern but he is expected to feature tomorrow.
