First Face-Off

TATA IPL 2013 was also the debut season for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was in the same edition in which it faced the Royals Challengers Bangalore for the first time. Both teams faced each other on 6 April 2013 in the 7th match of the edition. Sunrisers Hyderabad managed a close win over the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 3 wickets on the last ball of the match because of the sensational innings by Hanuma Vihari. 

Previous IPL Results

Royal Challengers Bangalore fancy the record of having a more than 50% win record against many teams of the IPL. But one team that has given tough competition to the Hyderabad franchise in maintaining this record is the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both teams have played 22 matches against each other and Royal Challengers Bangalore have won 9, while Sunrisers Hyderabad has managed to win 12, and one match had no result.

Pre-match Analysis

Both teams have finally managed to get some answers to their worries and will look to continue their momentum the same way. While Sunrisers Hyderabad would be happy with the form of Harry Brook and Aiden Markram, along with their home advantage, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be happy with the form of their captain Faf Du Plessis and legend Virat Kohli.    

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Virat Kohli has once again shown why he is regarded to be one of the best batters in the history of TATA IPL. He has batted amazingly and is currently one of the leading run-scorers of this edition. He would look to get his strike rate better and may once again be the best batter of the match. The Run Machine is finally in the zone to help the Royal Challengers Bangalore get the two valuable points and the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s relatively weaker bowling attack, coupled with the batting-friendly pitch, will only help Virat Kohli to be the best batter of the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad.  

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been an undisputed champion player for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was his bowling effort that helped the Sunrisers Hyderabad defend a 220+ total against the raging batting order of the Kolkata Knight Riders. This is why he may be the best bowler of the match.  

Match Details

Sunrisers Hyderabad will be up against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 65th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on 18th May 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset. 

Pitch Report

In Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, pitch curators design flat surfaces that are renowned for being batting-friendly. But as the game goes on, the Hyderabad pitch helps spinners. Spinners will therefore be crucial to the Hyderabad Cricket Stadium team in IPL 2023. Here, chasing appears simple, so it would be wise to start by bowling first.

Today’s match prediction: Final Thoughts

While both teams would like to gain some momentum, it can be expected that it will be a thrilling contest between the two teams. Royal Challengers Bangalore, because of their in-form players and team combinations, may emerge victorious.
