IPL 2022 – The BEST Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore

Sunrisers Hyderabad, led by Kane Williamson, have made a strong comeback in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, winning four matches in a row after losing their first two matches.

The Orange Army is presently ranked fifth in the points system, having defeated the Punjab Kings (PBKS), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Gujarat Titans (GT), and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). They did, however, lose to the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and the Rajasthan Royals (RR).

In their next match, the Sunrisers will play the formidable Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). On April 23, the match will be contested at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium (Saturday). The Orange Army may not want to mess with the winning formula and may stick with the same starting lineup that faced PBKS.

Let’s take a look at the BEST Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore

Kane Williamson, the skipper, may have struggled to find his rhythm in the previous match, but he has been a consistent performer for his team. Williamson made 52 against GT and 32 against the defending champions. In his next assignment, the skipper’s bat could produce yet another memorable inning.

Despite the fact that skipper Kane Williamson struggled to get going in the previous game, his partner Abhishek Sharma scored 31 runs off 25 balls against the Kings. Abhishek has scored 173 runs in six games, including 75 against CSK and 42 against GT.

Aiden Markram and Rahul Tripathi have both made outstanding contributions to their teams. South African batsman Markram has been impressive, scoring an unbeaten 41 against PBKS. Similarly, Tripathi scored 34 off 22 balls in his last match and was named Player of the Match in his team’s match against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

In the first match against the Rajasthan Royals, wicketkeeper-batsman Nicholas Pooran appeared to be under pressure (RR). However, he has turned things around with three 30-plus point games against the Super Giants, Titans, and Kings, and he has looked confident with his ball-striking abilities.


Marco Jansen, Shashank Singh and Jagadeesha Suchith form a deadly all-rounder combination

Pacer Marco Jansen has bowled well for the Orange Army. He was called into the starting lineup as a replacement for Romario Shepherd and has performed admirably for the team thus far. He has three wickets in four matches but has bowled with remarkable consistency.

Jagadeesha Suchith was very efficient in his second appearance in the tournament. In his four-over quota, the left-arm spinner took one wicket and conceded only 28 runs. He came in for the injured Washington Sundar against KKR and finished with figures of 1/32 off three overs. Shashank Singh, the all-rounder, did not bat or bowl in the previous match, but he is expected to remain in the lineup.


Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik and T Natarajan form the bowling attack

In their previous match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, and T Natarajan took eight wickets against PBKS. Umran Malik, the Express pacer, took four wickets and was named Player of the Match. Similarly, Kumar was at his best, taking three wickets, and Natarajan also took one.

The bowling attack of the Sunrisers is one of their key strengths. The pacer battery, on the other hand, will be put to the test against RCB’s star-studded batting lineup, which includes Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik.
