SRH vs RCB: IPL 2023 team news

With 12 points from 12 matches, the Royal Challengers are two points behind fourth-placed Mumbai Indians. A win here will boost their Playoffs chances (their net run rate of +0.166 is superior to Mumbai’s -0.128).

They will still have a chance if they lose, but three other teams – Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Punjab Kings – are also on 12 points apiece.

The Sunrisers, on the other hand, are last on the points table, though a win will help them leapfrog Delhi Capitals into the ninth place. Both teams are, of course, out of the race for the playoffs.

This will be Bangalore’s fifth consecutive match away from home. Both teams have every cricketer at their disposal, so it will be a contest between two full-strength sides.
