In the second encounter on double-header Saturday, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at Bangalore's home ground at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Royal Challengers Bangalore are the only team who are not in the race to qualify for the playoffs. With three teams having already qualified, the remaining four teams other than RCB still stand a chance to make the final cut.

It was due to the six-match losing streak that RCB were pushed so far down that it became almost impossible for them to bounce back. Virat Kohli made a statement in the last match and presented a case for playing without any baggage, now that the team is out of the race.

Kohli smashed 25 runs from seven deliveries, including three sixes and one four. Although, he perished in the process, he was successful in driving home the message that one of the most important things that T20, as a format, requires is to express yourself and not emphasize too much on the backlog.

Sunrisers Hyderabad would consider themselves unlucky for losing the last match against Mumbai Indians. With seven required off the last ball, Manish Pandey struck a six to take the match to the super over.

However, all Hyderabad could manage was eight runs as Hardik Pandya cleared the fence on the first ball, not allowing SRH to claim two points. The team has the best run rate across the chart and is most likely to qualify.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Royal Challengers Bangalore- Parthiv Patel, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Heinrich Klaasen, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Marcus Stoinis, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya, Yuzvendra Chahal

Sunrisers Hyderabad- Wriddhiman Saha, Martin Guptill, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Mohammad Nabi, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Abhishek Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, K Khaleel Ahmed, Basil Thampi
