Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next match at home on April 15 after a disappointing loss against Mumbai Indians. This is already their seventh game of the season. 

RCB received a thumping at the hands of Mumbai Indians in their previous match at the Chinnaswamy stadium. They posted 196 with the bat as MI chased the target down inside 16 overs. 

Skipper Faf du Plessis and former skipper Virat Kohli could not believe the exquisite strokeplay from the Mumbai batters. Fifties from Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav sealed the game for the five-time champions. 

After four consecutive losses, nothing seems to be working for RCB, who have run out of ideas as to how to stop the bleeding from the bowlers. None of the bowlers have taken 8 or more wickets so far in the tournament. Bowling continues to be a bane for the side as the management is finding it hard to address it. They are just finding it tough to win.

Glenn Maxwell is ruled out of this game with a finger injury. He is likely to be replaced by Cameron Green in the XI. In this article, we predict the likely playing XI for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Sunrisers Hyderabad. 

RCB Playing 11 vs SRH - IPL 2024, Match 30

Virat Kohli 

Virat Kohli will continue to open the batting for RCB. He was dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah for the fifth time in the last match for 3 off nine balls. He is still leading the Orange Cap race with 316 runs from six games.

Faf du Plessis (C)

Faf will open the batting with Kohli. He scored 61 off 40 balls which was his first fifty of the season. That has taken him up to 11th in the top run-getters list.

Will Jacks 

Jacks will slot in at three. He made his IPL debut against MI and scored 88 off six balls. The England all-rounder also dismissed Rohit Sharma as his maiden IPL wicker. 

Rajat Patidar 

Patidar will slot in at four. he finally found some form as he scored 50 off 26 balls, his first of the season. He needs to keep this form going for his franchise. He has been struggling with form since the Test series against England.

Cameron Green 

Green will slot in at five. He will return to the XI with Glenn Maxwell ruled out of this game due to a finger injury. Green is yet to make an impact for RCB. 

Dinesh Karthik (WK)

Karthik can look to bat at six. He scored a brilliant 53 off 23 balls and played a good hand to help RCB post the total that they did. He needs to continue his form for the franchise. 

Mahipal Lomror / Anuj Rawat 

Lomror can bat at seven if he recovers from the injury to his toe that he received from a Jasprit Bumrah yorker. If he does not get fit, he can be replaced by Anuj Rawat

Vijaykumar Vyshak

Vyshak can be one of the three Indian pacers. He was included in the last game after a break. He went for 32 runs in his three over and picked up a wicket. He is a good bowler with his change-ups and RCB can look to stick with him. 

Mohd Siraj 

Siraj has been very expensive for RCB. He has gone for 226 runs in the season so far and has picked up just four wickets. RCB needs more wickets from him. He has been leaking runs at an economy of 10.41
this season. 

Akash Deep

Akash Deep will be the other Indian seamer bowler for this game. He went for 55 in the last game against MI. With all RCB bowlers getting runs, he also should be given a longer run.

Reece Topley

Topley is likely to conclude the playing XI. He can be effective with his left arm angle. He went for 34 of his three overs. He has picked up three wickets in three games.

Impact Sub- Karn Sharma 

The leggie should be brought on as the Impact sub to strengthen their bowling attack for this game. RCB have not made the best use of the Impact Sub rule to their advantage so far.
