The 54th game of the Indian Premier League’s 12th season will see Royal Challengers Bangalore host SunRisers Hyderabad in what will be an intriguing encounter on Saturday.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are having one of the worst season a team can have in the IPL. The team is in the last spot, and everything that could’ve gone wrong has gone wrong for them in this campaign. Captain Virat Kohli has really taken a mental toll this year, and he will be looking to get some free time from all the responsibility before the ICC World Cup starts. This being the last game for the franchise, will be the ideal litmus test for the bench, so the management can make some important decisions.
On the other hand, SunRisers Hyderabad are in the fourth spot and are the only ideal contender to make the final spot in the playoffs. The team has been incredible form all season long and even though they will be without David Warner, the team roster is still strong enough to do wonders. This going to be the last game for the franchise for the regular season, and they have to make sure they come up with the goods or else risk of failing to qualify for the semi-finals.
