RCB vs SRH Head-to-head Stats

As far as head-to-head clashes between the Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Sunrisers Hyderabad franchises is concerned, it is the latter that holds a slight edge over the former. However, the RCB group has regained some advantage off late, having won three off their five previous faceoffs against the SRH.

Overall, the two teams have competed against each other on 22 occasions. RCB managed to secure wins in 10 of those games, while SRH registered 11 outright victories. The only tied affair between the two sides went in favor of the ‘Orange Army’.

The last time RCB and SRH faced each other was during the concluding stages of the IPL 2023 season at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Playing away from home, RCB won the contest by eight wickets off the back of Virat Kohli’s century and a sizzling 71 from captain Faf du Plessis.

RCB will be aiming to repeat their 2023 success against the SRH in a bid to climb up the IPL 2024 points table. The SRH, on the other hand, will be looking to sustain their newfound winning momentum to burst into the playoffs reckoning.

Fantasy value from the pitch report

  • The surface at Bengaluru’s M. Chinnaswamy Stadium seems to be a batting-friendly one. Expect top-order batters from both camps to have a fiery evening.
  • While pacers have also managed to reap the benefits of pace and bounce on offer here this season, lethal fast bowling options might well prove to be handy picks for the surface.

RCB vs SRH Fantasy Cricket Tips

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Heavy Fantasy XI

  • Wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik and star opener Virat Kohli have been in splendid touch with the bat for the RCB this IPL 2024 season. Moreover, the latter of the two cricketers is also the current recipient of the coveted ‘Orange Cap’. In case of selecting an RCB-heavy fantasy XI, both Karthik and Virat Kohli should be in your team.
  • For RCB’s bowling department, Yash Dayal might come in handy with the new-ball for his wicket-taking abilities while all-rounder Glenn Maxwell can deliver timely breakthroughs in the middle overs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Heavy Fantasy XI

  • SRH’s top-order batters Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head seem to be firing on all cylinders this season. Apart from the two blistering openers, Heinrich Klaasen in the middle order has also unleashed a number of remarkable half-centuries.
  • SRH captain Pat Cummins and seamer T Natarajan will start out as ideal pace options for your fantasy XI. Their pace, bounce and accuracy will likely come in handy at the Bengaluru surface.

RCB vs SRH Winner Prediction

SRH, under Pat Cummins, will enter the contest off the back of successive wins over CSK and Punjab Kings. Currently placed at number four on the IPL 2024 points table, they will be considered as favorites to overpower a struggling and bottom-placed RCB unit at the latter’s home ground.
