Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore finally managed to put an end to their losing streak in the previous game against the Chennai Super Kings. The Faf du Plessis-led side hasn’t seen the best of Virat Kohli yet this year as he has not been consistent. However, a good bowling display has ensured that they still pick up points. With six wins in 11 games, RCB is currently at the fourth position in the points table and is likely to stick with the same playing XI from the previous game.
WAGING ODDS: SRH (2.05) Vs RCB (1.80)

RCB are the underdogs and priced at 1.80 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹180
This is likely to be a high-scoring encounter and the batters from both side enjoy playing here. Spinners might get a little amount of help from the surface and play a key role during the middle-overs. Given the recent string of performances, RCB are expected to clinch a comfortable victory in the contest.
Prediction: RCB to win the match.
