The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are in dire requisite to win their last two matches in order to stay alive for progression in the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The franchise has picked up form against the Delhi Daredevils (DD) and the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Meanwhile, they also ensured that their shambolic Net Run Rate gets a significant boost.
Virat Kohli’s men will now play their penultimate match in the round-robin stage against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) who have been a brute force to reckon with.
The Orange Army are at the pinnacle of the points table and have assured themselves a berth in the top two positions even if they go on to lose their last couple of encounters against RCB and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
The pitch at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium has favoured the batsmen and the venue has been a witness to some formidable scores as the tournament has gone by.
Hence, the fans might be in for another entertaining night. Moreover, this is RCB’s last match this season in front their home crowd and they won’t want to disappoint the audience who have rooted for Virat’s boys throughout the season.
Bleak chances of rain
As per reports in AccuWeather, there are chances of rain in the afternoon. However, after 6 pm in the evening, there is no forecast of a downpour,
which is a good news for the teams, especially RCB who desperately need full points in the game. The temperature is expected to be cool and will be around 23 degrees Celsius and 26 degrees Celsius from 8 pm to 12 am.
Clouds are likely to hover over the ground, but for the time being, they are speculated to be harmless. The dew factor is likely to play a part and the toss will be important from both team’s point of view.
