According to betting odds, this is an evenly poised contest. However, it doesn’t seem like. Hyderabad is winning almost each of their games while RCB is losing away their every second game. RCB has won just 3 games in 9 games so far. Apart from their two or three players, no one else is contributing to their full potential and this has been the biggest reason for their failure so far.
While RCB has one of the strongest batting line-ups in IPL 2018, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have the best bowling line up. It will be interesting to watch both the teams come face to face.
