Royal Challengers Bangalore
The Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Royal Challengers Bangalore are two of the bigger names in the IPL, despite neither having a huge amount of success in the competition. This is what makes SRH vs RCB one of the games to watch in the competition, and we expect 2020 to be no different!
The Sunrisers have tasted IPL success in the past, winning the title in 2016 and since then they have also reached the final in 2018, although were beaten by the Chennai Super Kings. They will be looking to build on what they have achieved in recent years by taking a big run at the title once again here. Their home ground is the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, and they will be hoping to turn that into a fortress.

SRH vs RCB
Virat Kohli captains the Royal Challengers Bangalore, and that immediately grabs attention from all over the world, as Kohli is up there with the very best in all formats of the game. They have reached the IPL final on three occasions, but have been beaten in everyone, is this the year they finally shake off their tag of never winning the IPL? To do that, they will have to play well at their home ground of the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, where they have always done pretty well in the past.
SRH vs RCB 2018
The 2018 meeting between these two was low scoring, and it is fair to say that SRH vs RCB 2018 will not be one of the big IPL memories for people. The Sunrisers were put in to bat first, and despite Kane Williamson scoring 56 from 39 balls, they faded to just 146 all out, leaving the door wide open for Bangalore to win the game. Mohammed Siraj and Tim Southee both took three wickets in the game to slow the Sunrisers down.
Then the Royal Challengers came out to bat but failed to get any kind of momentum in the game. Virat Kohli led the way but 39 runs from 30 balls is below par for him. With no other useful contributions, Bangalore fell short of their target, scoring 141 from their 20 overs, leaving the Sunrisers to claim a five-run win. Kane Williamson took home the man of the match award in this one, but it was certainly not the big high scoring game that many had hoped for with so many top players on show.
SRH vs RCB 2019
If the 2018 edition lacked a big score, we certainly got it when these two met in 2019. SRH vs RCB 2019 saw not one, but two centuries scored, both coming off the bat of players playing from the Sunrisers Hyderabad Team 2019. Jonny Bairstow led the way with his man of the match performance to score 115 from 56 balls, while David Warner wasn’t too far behind with 100 not out from 55 deliveries. They set the Sunrisers up to score 231/2 from 20 overs, a huge task for the Royal Challengers to overcome. They didn’t bat well either and eventually finished a long way off the pace. In reply they finished on 113 all out, with only Colin de Grandhomme scoring over 20 as he knocked 37 off 32 deliveries. Mohammad Nabi was the pick of the Hyderabad bowlers with four wickets in the game, and just 11 runs conceded.
SRH vs RCB Match Prediction
When thinking about your SRH vs RCB match prediction, it is important to remember what happened above; we have had two very different types of game when the Sunrisers have hosted over the past two years.
We saw a low scoring game in 2018, a huge score for the Sunrisers in 2019, what will the 2020 fixture bring us, and is there a way for the Royal Challengers Bangalore to get anything from this game, given their poor record over the past couple of years?

Games played: 15
Sunrisers Hyderabad wins: 8

The stats show a narrow lead for the Sunrisers, but there is a little more to those stats than meets the eye. The first thing to note is recent meetings, although things look close overall, the Sunrisers have won five of the last seven meetings between these two to give them a definite edge.
There is also the record at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium to think about too, the home ground of the Sunrisers. They have played a total of seven games at that stadium, and the Sunrisers have won six of those meetings at the ground. Although the overall head to head stats show that these two are close, when they are playing at home and based on the recent meetings, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have a clear advantage over the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
