IPL 2021 Phase 2 SRH vs RCB: Preview, head-to-head, and team news

In their last encounter, RCB beat SRH by six wickets in the first phase of IPL 2021.

In the 52nd match of the VIVO IPL 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore will square off with Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Tuesday at 7:30 PM IST.

Sunrisers Hyderabad is having a forgettable season as they won just twice in their 12 fixtures so far. The 2016-IPL champions commenced the season with David Warner as the captain but the Australian opener was replaced by Kane Williamson as the new skipper. The Kiwi captain also couldn’t manage to change the fortune for SRH as the team continued to struggle. In their previous game, they lost to Kolkata Knight Riders by six wickets. The Hyderabad-based franchise has acquired the last spot on the points table with four points. 

On the other side, Royal Challengers Bangalore bounced back after losing a couple of initial matches in phase 2 of the season. The Virat Kohli-led RCB have been on a three-run victory, which helped them qualify for the playoffs and would want to continue their form in the upcoming knockout stage as well. RCB will be heading into this fixture on the back of a six-run victory against Punjab Kings on Sunday. Glenn Maxwell and Harshal Patel have been the star players for RCB in the ongoing edition of the competition. A comfortable win against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday will keep the momentum going for the remainder of the tournament. 

Head-to-Head:

RCB and SRH have played against each other on 19 occasions, the latter has the upper hand with 10 victories while the former had registered eight wins.

In their last encounter, RCB beat SRH by six wickets in the first phase of IPL 2021. 

Team News:
