Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) and SunRisers Hyderabad(SRH) are set to lock horns in the 36th match of the Indian Premier League(IPL) in the second clash of the doubleheader on Saturday, April 23 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
The Royal Challengers Bangalore have been displaying outstanding performances and also been recovering from tough situations. However, they would like a lot more contribution from the likes of Virat Kohli who has struggled in this season so far. The Faf du Plessis-led side are third in the points table with 5 wins and 2 losses in 7 matches.
On the other hand, the Sunrisers Hyderabad delivered an excellent chase in their previous game and their bowling attack looks the most destructive at the moment with all the fast bowlers coming good. The return of Washington Sundar is set to provide some boost to the bowling attack but the inexperienced middle-order hasn’t been tested yet due to some good bowling performances. the Sunrisers Hyderabad have made an incredible turnaround as they have now won 4 matches in a row after an initial couple of losses
WAGING ODDS: RCB (1.66) VS SRH (2.25)
RCB are the favorites and are priced at 1.66, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹166.
SRH are the underdogs and priced at 2.25 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹225.

Prediction: RCB to win the match.
