Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru hosts the RCB vs SRH IPL 2024 match on April 15, Monday from 7.30 pm IST. After a string of losses, RCB needs a few wins together to stay alive in the tournament. This is the first match between the two teams this season. 

RCB are heading into this match after their fourth loss on the trot this season. They lost to MI in their previous game. Having posted 196 with the bat, the RCB bowlers leaked runs from both ends as Mumbai Indians chased down the target in 15.3 overs. The win boosted their NRR as well. 

RCB used six bowlers each of whom had an economy rate of of over 180. The side has just not been able to identify and settle into the right bowling combination, Skipper Faf du Plessis has failed to identify the weaklings in the bowling attack and the changes so far have not paid off.

SRH, on the other hand, is heading into this match on the back of a narrow victory against Punjab Kings. They scored 182 and managed to limit PBKS to 180 in the run-chase. As a side, they have played with an attacking template and managed to win three of the five games so far.

RCB have a 10-12 head-to-head record against SRH. They have won the last two games against Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, heading into this game, they are under huge pressure and not in the best of form. Therein lies SRH's chance to upset RCB at home where they have already lost two out of the three games played.

The pitch at the Chinnsawamy stadium has always been a batting-friendly one. Two out of the three games played at this venue so far this year have been won chasing. RCB themselves chased against Punjab Kings while KKR chased against RCB. 

The wicket has even bounce and carry and a score of around 200 is just par on this wicket. The dew in the second half makes it an easier ground to chase. 

Weather Impact on RCB vs SRH IPL 2024 Match 30

Dew plays a big part in evening matches here. It is due to the impact of dew that teams prefer chasing at this venue. The weather conditions will be cloudy during the day.

By the evening, there will be cloudy skies but there is no chance of rain. We should have a full game of 40 overs and it should be a high-scoring one. In case it rains, it should be a passing shower.

Conclusion

RCB has not been able to bank on home advantage as yet. It is because their bowlers have leaked runs at both home and away. They are coming up against a team who have already notched up the highest ever IPL score. They have already lost five games. Another loss would put them on the brink of elimination.
