IPL 2020 Match 52- Bangalore vs. Hyderabad Predictions, Fantasy picks, and Probable XI
Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Sunrisers Hyderabad today, October 31, in the 52nd match of IPL 2020 which will be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
Even if SRH is 4 points behind RCB, they have a better net run rate than RCB. If RCB win this match, they pretty much secure play-offs spot. Let's take a look at the Fantasy picks, predictions, and probable XI for this game.
Fantasy League Picks
Devdutt Padikkal started strong then slowed down and seems to be back in-form. He scored 73 runs of 45 balls in RCB's last match against Mumbai Indians and so far he has scored 417 runs in 12 matches at a strike rate of 128.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Virat Kohli is fourth in the race for orange cap of this season. He has scored 424 runs in 12 matches at a strike rate of 122. He was dismissed for cheap in RCB's last match against Mumbai Indians but he is in-form and can very well steer the match in RCB's direction with his batting. David Warner is one place ahead of Virat Kohli in the race for orange cap. He has scored 436 runs in 12 matches at a strike rate of 134.
Last time RCB played against SRH, AB de Villiers smashed 51 runs off 30 balls and something similar will be expected from him in this match as well. He is one of RCB's strongest pillars of support and they can count on him to lead the team to victory him situation gets dicey.
Aaron Finch has been hitting the ball hard and long but his innings have been short. He needs to stay at the crease and build partnerships to help RCB put on a big score.
Rashid Khan and Yuzvendra Chahal are two of the best spinners that will share the field today. Rashid Khan has 17 wickets in 12 matches whereas Chahal has 18 wickets in 12 matches. RCB will also have high expectations from Chris Morris.
