Two matches are lined up on Sunday, the first of which will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

Hyderabad would be extremely high on confidence after chasing the 199-run target against Rajasthan Royals in their last match. Credit to the century from Sanju Samson, Rajasthan Royals posted a daunting target of 199 on the board, which also included a 70-run hand from Ajinkya Rahane.

In reply, David Warner and Jonny Bairstow got off the team to a sensational start and had a 110-run partnership within the first 10 overs. This made the job a bit easier for the following batsmen.

Vijay Shankar scored a 15-ball 35 and looked in great touch but could not finish the match. It was then Yusuf Pathan and Rashid Khan who took the team over the line. Rashid smashed the last ball of the penultimate over for a six off Jofra Archer to finish the game in style.


Royal Challengers Bangalore are coming off a defeat against Mumbai Indians. The match was a nail-biter and went right down to the last ball. It was later found out Lasith Malinga had clearly overstepped and it was not a legal ball. The umpire failed to notice it and as a result, RCB lost the close match.

Parthiv Patel and Moeen Ali are expected to open the innings for the team. Virat Kohli will bat at number three and will be followed by AB de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer and Shivam Dube, all of whom have the ability to strike it big. Yuzvendra Chahal would be their leading bowler.

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

Sunrisers Hyderabad- David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul

Royal Challengers Bangalore- Virat Kohli, Parthiv Patel, Moeen Ali, AB de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Colin de Grandhomme, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini
