While Royal Challengers Bangalore have always managed to miss the trophy, it is one of the influential teams of the Indian Premier League. Sunrisers Hyderabad had been crowned the league champions once. When these two teams clash together, there will be a lot of cricket fans to look out for. RCB is in great form, whereas SRH is yet to showcase its caliber. On October 6th, both teams will take each other to Abu Dhabi Stadium. So who will win the match? We will find the answer to this question in this SRH vs. RCB: match Prediction.
RCBs bowlers took SRH by surprise to bag an epic win. Sunrisers Hyderabad, who seemed to be in a good position of 77/1 at ten overs, failed to move forwards when it mattered the most. Harshal Patel and Shahbaz Nadeem bowled brilliantly, leaving no room for SRH to score any runs. Ahmed shined in the 17th over, where he took the wickets of Manish Pandey, Abdul Samad, and Jonny Bairstow. It broke the backbone of SRH, and RCB won by six wickets.
Royal Challengers Bangalore has been showing consistent performance. The team stands in the third position at the point’s table. The team has played seven matches out of which it won five, bagging 10 points. SRH has been struggling throughout the season and is at the last position. The team has played seven games and only managed to win one, collecting 2 points.

There have been changes in the RCB line-up. Washington Sundar has to sit the UAE leg out due to a finger injury. State Cricket Akash Deep has been assigned as a replacement. Royal Challengers Bangalore is not focusing on grooming its young players. Additionally, the franchise has some notable fresh faces, including Wanindu Hasaranga (Sri Lankan spinner), Tim David (Singapore all-rounder), George Garton (England all-rounder), and Dushmantha Chameera (Sri Lankan pacer).
With only one win at its bag, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be focused on bouncing back to the Indian Premier League in the second leg. The only win the team managed was against Punjab Kings XI. The team’s poor performance forced the management to take the step of sacking David Warner as the captain. He was also dropped from the playing XI after that. Warner was replaced by Kane Williamson, who will continue to lead the team in the UAE leg. Contrary to many other IPL teams, SRH does not have an issue with players’ availability. Their players are fit and ready for the next leg.
Whether it is the internal management or on-field performance, IPL 2021 match prediction favors RCB. If Royal Challengers Bangalore continues to show this kind of steady performance, this might be the year it takes home the trophy. So our SRH vs. RCB match prediction is that RCB will win the match.
