Big names like Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell are likely to feature for the RCB, while Pat Cummins, Aiden Markram, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Heinrich Klaasen will be the main men for SRH. Meanwhile, in this post, we will take a look at the top five player battles to watch out for in the RCB vs SRH contest.

1 – Virat Kohli and Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Innings 8
Runs 70
Balls 51
Outs 2

It is going to be a battle between two warhorses of Indian cricket as Virat Kohli will open the batting against the swing master Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The King Kohli has scored 70 runs off 50 deliveries of 8 innings against the right-arm pacer but Bhuvi has also dismissed the former 2 times.

2 – Faf du Plessis vs Pat Cummins

Innings 5
Runs 50
Balls 34
Outs 1

In the battle of the skippers, Faf du Plessis seems to have an upper hand over the Aussie quick. In 5 T20 meetings, the South African batter has scored 50 runs off 34 deliveries against Pat Cummins. Meanwhile, Pat has managed to dismiss Faf once.

3 – Glenn Maxwell vs T Natarajan

Innings 8
Runs 32
Balls 31
Outs 3

Glenn Maxwell is currently miserably out of form but no one can deny that he could change the game on his day. Sunrisers Hyderabad could use T Natarajan to negate Maxi’s threat as Natarajan has dismissed the Aussie all-rounder 3 times in 8 meetings. Furthermore, Glenn Maxwell has only managed to score 32 runs off 31 deliveries against the SRH’s death specialist.

4 – Abhishek Sharma and Mohammed Siraj

Innings 3
Runs 40
Balls 27
Outs 0

Abhishek Sharma is having his breakthrough season for Sunrisers Hyderabad as he has been attacking the opposition right at the top. Meanwhile, Mohammed Siraj is RCB’s main bowler despite a mediocre form in the ongoing season. However, Abhishek Sharma’s record against ‘Miyan Bhai’ is not good news for the RCB fans as the left-handed southpaw has scored 40 runs off 27 deliveries in 3 meetings against Mohammed Siraj. Furthermore, the latter is yet to dismiss the SRH’s opener.

5 – Travis Head vs Reece Topley

Innings 4 (ODIs)
Runs 72
Balls 51
Outs 2

The inclusion of Travis Head has changed the complexion of SRH’s game. The Aussie is attacking from the word go and making the most of the powerplay. Meanwhile, the RCB is heavily dependent on Reece Topley’s wicket-taking ability to get breakthroughs in the first six overs. While the two players are yet to face each other in T20 cricket, they have met in the ODIs 4 times. Travis Head has smashed Reece Topley for 72 runs off just 51 deliveries but the Englishman has also accounted for Travis Head’s wicket 2 times.
