Both sides have 14 points each from 13 matches and a win in their last league match tomorrow at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium at Uppal is a must for either team to qualify for the play-offs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have been on a high after consecutive victories before they suffered a setback last night by losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore by six wickets in a rain-curtailed away match.
Sunrisers put up a challenging total of 135 in 11 overs after a rain-delayed start, but RCB achieved the revised target of 81 from six overs with a ball to spare under Duckworth/Lewis system with Chris Gayle (35) and captain Virat Kohli (44 not out) taking their side home.
Captain David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have been doing a fine job at the top of order for Sunrisers and their middle-order batsmen like Moises Henriques, Eoin Morgan and Lokesh Rahul have also been making useful contributions to the team cause.
The performance of the middle order looked shaky early in the tournament but that is no longer the case now for the Sunrisers.
The Hyderabad side boasts of one of the best bowling attacks in the current edition of IPL, with the presence of top-ranking bowlers like Dale Steyn, Trent Boult, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, all-rounder Moises Henriques and Karn Sharma.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has particularly been impressive with his death bowling as seen in the recent matches.
