SRH vs RCB Dream11 Prediction: After seeing the last-over finish in the opening match of Indian Premier League (IPL), last night we witnessed the first Super Over between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab. Our point being that we are only into the 3rd Day of the tournament and hasn’t it already lived-up to the hype!? Now let’s talk about Day 3, today! This is the day world will witness this generations best batsman, Virat Kohli, take the field. Kohli will lead his team against David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad. And it is not only Kohli and Warner who will set the stage on fire, there is AB de Villiers, Rashid Khan, Jonny Bairstow, Aaron Finch among other T20 superstars who will compete in tonight’s epic. RCB are going to start another edition as tournament favourites (even though they haven’t won any) and SRH will once against start as a team that punches above its weight!
Indian Premier League Season 13
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
Date – Monday, 21st September 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: The last two matches have shown that 160 is a par score considering the big boundaries and the unevenness the track offers to the pacers having been fed grass that the track didn’t seem to have digested, hence the par score remains the same. We have seen fast bowlers making a mark in the tournament and both teams are blessed to have some very good seaming options.
Sunrisers have a slight edge when it comes to head-to-head as they have a 8-6 winning record against RCB but since 2018 the battle has been equal as both teams have won two games each. It is difficult to separate the two sides as both outfits boast of players who have been involved in action recently. But you just can’t ignore the Virat Kohli-AB de Villiers combo, especially at the start of the tournament, and for that reason, we think RCB are going to nudge past SRH.

Virat Kohli: How can you not afford to have Virat Kohli in the team as your captain? This is a man against who you just can’t afford to bet. With 504 runs he is obviously the leading run-scorer vs SRH and is also the leading run-scorer in IPL’s history with 5412 runs.
Jonny Bairstow: The English opener scored a brilliant hundred in the last ODI against England not so long ago. He likes taking on the bowlers from the first ball and he can go long against the spinners too with his slog-sweeps. He is a no-brainer in SRH vs RCB Dream11 Prediction
SRH vs BLR Dream11 Grand League Vice-Captain Choices
David Warner: The SRH captain struggled against England in the recently concluded series but he has shown this in the past that his international form has nothing to do with his IPL show. He enjoys leading the team and with 562 runs against RCB he is their best bet. Kohli will know that he will have to get past Warner to win.
Aaron Finch: Yes, we have the Aussie openers as the vice-captain choices. Finch looked good in all the matches he played against England and seems to be striking the ball cleanly. RCB is his 8th franchise in the tournament and it would be good to see him bat alongside Kohli and de Villiers.
SRH vs RCB Dream11: X-Factors, Players who may deliver big time!
Rashid Khan: The Afghan spinner is arguably the best T20 bowler around and is touted to win the Purple Cap this season. He is hard to pick and his quick-arm actions makes him difficult to reverse-sweep against. His main job today will be to stop the Virat-AB duo. The 23-year-old can be a match-winner in SRH vs RCB Today Match Prediction.
AB de Villiers: The reason why IPL is so close to our heart is that it gives us an option to see players like AB perform. You just can’t hate this man; he is batting at his very best. Not many can overshadow Virat, but AB can. He has a brilliant IPL record (4395 runs, 151 strike-rate, 3 hundreds, 33 fifties) and he would be so desperate to see his team lift the trophy.
SRH vs RCB Dream11 Wicket-Keeper Pick
Jonny Bairstow: Mega contests are won and lost on this decision. In today’s match it is learned that AB would keep wickets but he isn’t marked as a wicket-keeper in Dream11, so you must take only Bairstow as your wicket-keeper for the day.
SRH vs RCB Dream11 MPL Most Affordable Players
To have Kohli, Warner, Finch, Rashid, AB in your team you must choose some players who will get you points but they will cost you less, so here are the two most affordable players:
Sandeep Sharma: This man has everything you need to have to be successful, especially on the tracks that we are seeing here. He has control, can swing the ball and also has a decent slower and knuckleball. He has been a good performer for SRH and is closing in on 100 wickets.
Washington Sundar: There is something about this tall offie that Virat Kohli likes a lot. He has been a regular in India’s T20 squad and it’s time for him to justify the trust shown in him. He can win you points both with bat and ball.
