Bengaluru, May 04, Saturday at 08:00 PM IST
Royal Challengers Bangalore will play their final fixture of this season when they host Sunrisers Hyderabad at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru tonight. This will be their final appearance in the tournament as the side is placed at the bottom spot with four wins in thirteen outings.
The hosts got knocked out of the tournament in the previous clash with Rajasthan Royals that ended on a tie due to incessant rain. It is time for their final appearance in this year’s campaign and they will be looking to finish off on a high in front of the home crowd.
On the opposite, Sunrisers Hyderabad need to win this encounter with a huge margin to fancy their chances for the fourth spot. With six wins and seven defeats, Sunrisers Hyderabad is placed fourth with 12 points and need 2 more crucial points to seal the playoffs spot. However, their biggest threat would be Kolkata Knight Riders who are sitting fifth with the same attributes. The only difference between the two sides is in the net run rate.
So, while RCB will be playing for salvaging pride, SRH would be eyeing on a net run-rate boosting win to nab the last remaining playoff berth. The match will begin at 08:00 PM IST.
