==============================================================

Toss: Virat Kohli have won the toss and elected to bat first. Two changes in SRH as Parvez Rasool and Venugopal Rao have replaced Amit Mishra and KL Rahul, respectively. On the other hand, RCB are playing with the same XI.

After losing three successive matches, Sunrisers Hyderabad face another tough battle when they take on powerful Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Rajiv Gandhi International cricket stadium in an IPL match within few minutes from now, in the first encounter of the day.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have eight points from 11 matches and need to win their remaining three matches to book a place in the semi-finals. But that won`t be easy as KKR and Royals too are fighting. The same goes for RCB who too need to win all their matches from here on to have an outside chance.

The last times these two sides met RCB beat Sunrisers by four wickets and SRH will have that in mind. In front of their home crowd SRH will look to earn an important victory and avoid fourth straight loss this season.

RCB`s powerful hitters of Chris Gayle, Yuvraj Singh and AB de Villiers will be against a good attack comprising of Dale Steyn and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Both teams will look to impose a good total on the board and defend the runs. Expect this match to be a cracker and hope free run-flow comes out from the batters. RCB go in as favourites though!
