SRH vs RCB Match Prediction, Who Will Win
Things would be pretty tight when the finalists of the last year lock horns in the very first contest of Vivo IPL 10 2017 here in Hyderabad.One major setback although for Royal Challengers Bangalore would be the absence of skipper Virat Kohli who is still recovering from a shoulder injury.On the flip side, Sunrisers Hyderabad would be pretty ecstatic as their skipper David Warner is still in good shape although he wasn’t able to make a big impact on the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar trophy.Given below is the Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match prediction for the first game of Vivo IPL 10.
RCB vs SRH: Both Batting Heavy
Both RCB and SRH are batting heavyweights, hence team who bats better is expected to win.RCB have made some critical bowling changes with the inclusion of Pawan Negi and Tymal Mills.These two are expected to plug the vicious flow of runs which proved critical when RCB lost matches during the last season.SRH on the other hand were solely dependent on skipper David Warner.They would want a more contribution from other players as well.
Bowling on the other hand has been largely dismal from both the teams.For SRH players like Mustafizur Rehman and veteran Ashish Nehra would be critical.On the flip side RCB would want new inclusions such as Tymal Mills and Pawan Negi to perform well.In the batting department RCB would depend on KL Rahul, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle,Sachin Baby and Sarfaraz Khan in the absence of skipper Kohli.
