IPL 2020 RCB vs SRH preview: Royal Challengers eye playoffs berth in clash against Hyderabad

In an all-important match from the perspective of playoffs, Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad in an Indian Premier League clash on Saturday. RCB are currently placed at the second position in the points table, while SRH are at the seventh position and have a daunting task ahead of them to make it to playoffs. Having lost their last two games, Virat Kohli’s boys will be looking to get back the winning touch. Hyderabad, on the other hand, will be high after beating Delhi Capitals in their last game and would like to continue with the momentum.

The last time the two teams clashed with each other in the tournament, RCB had beaten Sun Risers comprehensively by 10 runs. While RCB will looking to for an encore, SRH will be itching to avenge the loss. While batting remains a headache for RCB with their over-dependence on the likes of skipper Virat Kohli and Ab de Villiers, SRH are looking for another frontline bowler who could complement the brilliant Rashid Khan and T Natarajan. So would RCB seal the playoffs berth, or would Sun risers cause another upset like in the last match? We have to wait and watch!
