SRH vs RCB IPL 2021 Live: After facing a heartening 10-run loss in their opening match of the season, the Sunrisers Hyderabad are all geared up to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai in the sixth match of IPL 2021. The Sunrisers Hyderabad have won a crucial toss and opted to bowl first in their second match of the tournament against RCB.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad have made two changes to their playing XI from the previous match. The biggest news is that West Indies big-hitting all-rounder Jason Holder has replaced Mohammad Nabi while Shahbaz Nadeem has come in Sandeep Sharma. Holder who has completed his mandatory quarantine period is a huge boost for the Sunrisers Hyderabad as he performed really well for the team last year both with the bat and ball.
In the first match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Nabi picked up fine figures of 2 for 32 which included the crucial wickets of Nitish Rana and Eoin Morgan. He scored 14 runs off 11 balls with the bat during the chase. On the other hand, coming in as a replacement for Mitchell Marsh in the second half of IPL 2020, Holder did extremely for the Sunrisers Hyderabad last year taking a total of 14 wickets in 7 matches at an economy of 8.32.
Talking about Royal Challengers Bangalore’s playing XI, they have made just one change to their winning combination. Devdutt Padikkal is back to resume his opening duties in place of Rajat Patidar as the former was their standout performer with the bat in the previous season. RCB captain Virat Kohli also confirmed that Shahbaz Ahmed will be batting at the No.3 position in this game against SRH. RCB are playing a pretty heavy bowling line-up in this game as skipper Kohli will have a lot of options to defend the total.
