Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in match 54 of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost their last matches on a trot and another loss will make it difficult for them to make it to the playoffs. They are currently sixth in the points table with five wins in ten games.
RCB, on the other hand, ended their losing streak in the last game when they defeated Chennai Super Kings. While the bowlers have done well for RCB, their batsmen, especially big names like Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis, have been inconsistent. They are currently fourth in the points table with six wins in 11 games and much like SRH, this game is a must win for them too.
For RCB, the players to watch out will be Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood. For CSK, the likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Moeen Ali will be expected to deliver.
The game will be played at the Wankhede Stadium which is a good batting surface and also assists the fast bowlers.
