IPL 2018: Match 51, RCB vs SRH – Sunrisers Hyderabad Predicted XI
Sunrisers Hyderabad will travel to Bangalore for the 51st match of IPL 2018. The Orange Army had already qualified for the playoff stages.
Moreover, they have also assured a top-two finish with nine wins under their bag. However, the Kane Williamson-led team will like to continue their impetus going in the season.
On the other hand, after winning their last two matches, Royal Challengers Bangalore has given themselves a fresh hope of qualifying for the playoffs.
However, they would need other results to go in their favour. If KXIP and KKR win their remaining matches, it would be the end of the road for the Virat Kohli-led team.
When these two had met early in the season, Sunrisers Hyderabad was able to win by five runs.
Here is a look at the Predicted Playing XI of the Sunrisers Hyderabad:
Shikhar Dhawan has struck back form after getting two fifties in the last two matches. SRH think tank will hope the southpaw continues his good form in upcoming games.
Alex Hales hasn’t able to deliver the goods for the Orange army in the last couple of matches. Team management will hope the England batsman finds his form before the playoffs.
Kane Williamson has continued with his fine form. SRH skipper has scored 544 runs. Moreover, Williamson has scored seven fifties in the season.
Manish Pandey has continued to disappoint with his dismal form. However, Pandey will like to get back into touch before the crucial matches.
Deepak Hooda had provided fine finishing touches in the final match against CSK. Hooda can be given another opportunity before the playoffs.
Shakib Al Hasan
Hyderabad will like to keep their good form going.
Shakib Al Hasan has done a good job for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Hasan has delivered the goods with both the bat as well as the ball for the table toppers.
Wriddhiman Saha should make his way back into the SRH playing XI. Saha hasn’t played the last couple of matches due to an injury.
Rashid Khan had bowled top-notch for the Hyderabad team so far in the tournament. The leg-spinner has bagged 13 wickets in the 12 matches played thus far.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar had turned out to be expensive in the last couple of matches. However, the pack leader is expected to roar back stronger.
Siddharth Kaul was also expensive in the last match against CSK. Furthermore, the fast bowler was on the expensive side.
Sandeep Sharma has got the ball to swing in the powerplay overs. Sharma will like to make use of the new white ball.
