IPL 2022 – Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Match 36 – Preview

Winning is a habit, a term repeated every day and in every sport. Following the correction of a few flaws in the engine room, both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad are sprinting up the points table in the IPL 2022, winning five and four games, respectively. A win over SRH might propel RCB to the top of the table, while a win over SRH could propel Hyderabad past the mid-table traffic congestion.

With the tracks assisting the pacemen, SRH has gone for pace-heavy attacks, which have worked for them, with T Natarajan, Umran Malik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and others all shining brightly at some point or another. Despite not taking many wickets so far in the IPL, Marco Jansen has added another string to his bow with his left-arm angle, bounce, and a hint of movement.

The humidity is expected to be high, which could result in some dew. Despite the fact that sprays and the super-sopper have been used to manage the dew factor. The team that wins the toss will bat first, as has been the case in recent years.

Because of the smaller size of the Brabourne stadium, as well as the good batting strips, it could be a high-scoring game. Having said that, the pitch aided spinners in the previous game played at this venue between the Delhi Capitals and the Punjab Kings.

Royal Challengers Bangalore


In the IPL, Mohammed Siraj has dismissed Rahul Tripathi and Kane Williamson several times. His ability to use the 3/4 ball may be useful with the new ball. So far, Hazlewood has taken three scalps in the Powerplay and end overs, and his presence has aided RCB in identifying the nuts and bolts of their problems in the slog overs.

Predicted Lineup – Anuj Rawat, Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Suyash Prabhudessai, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik, Harshal Patel, Wanindu Hasaranga, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj


Sunrisers Hyderabad


In the middle overs, SRH has traditionally used Umran as an enforcer. In SRH’s previous game, he also appeared to hit the deck harder. As a result, Umran or Jansen could be used to counter Maxwell. The switch hit and reverse sweep are two of the right-favorite hander’s pitches. It has brought him a great deal of success. It does, however, provide a small window of opportunity for a finger spinner who bowls faster through the air to pick up a scalp.

Predicted Lineup – Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Shashank Singh, J Suchith/Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.
