Match predictions and probable playing XIs of Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

David Warner will be keen to continue the good show on his road to redemption when a confident Sunrisers Hyderabad take on a struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in an IPL game on Sunday.

Despite Sanju Samson scoring an unbeaten 102 not out, Warner (69 off 37 balls) helped Sunrisers chase down a mammoth 199-run target for an impressive five-wicket win, their first of the season on Friday night in a high-scoring contest against Rajasthan Royals.

RCB on the other hand, are yet to register a win from their two outings so far and they would be desperate to turn things around. But it won't be easy for them as the Sunrisers will have the home advantage.

While RCB were all out for 70 in the first game against Chennai Super Kings, they failed to chase down 187 against Mumbai Indians at home.

And if they want to do well, the RCB would need to look beyond captain Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.

De Villiers single-handedly kept the game alive till the last over against Mumbai Indians, scoring a brilliant 70 off 41 balls, but lack of support at the other end hampered the team's chances.

After Kohli's dismissal for 46, no other batsmen chipped in to support de Villers.

RCB must click as a batting unit if they want to post their first win of the season on Sunday.

What to expect?

Runs can be expected again at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad when these two explosive sides meet. Dew could be a factor later on in the day.

Probable playing XIs:

SRH: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Kane Williamson (C), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul 

RCB: Parthiv Patel (WK), Virat Kohli (C), Moeen Ali, AB de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Shivam Dubey, Colin de Grandhomme, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal
