Ahead of the mega 2022 auction, eight existing franchisees were forced to rebuild their squads. With AB de Villiers retiring and Virat Kohli stepping down from captaincy, RCB had a big challenge in front of them. They chose to retain Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Mohammed Siraj. Releasing Yuzvendra Chahal was a surprise.

SRH have defeated RCB in the final of IPL 2016 to claim their first IPL title.

Cricket Betting

Sunrisers Hyderabad had a big fallout with their star player David Warner and later parted ways with Rashid Khan and Jonny Bairstow as well. They retained Kane Williamson and two uncapped talents in Abdul Samad and Umran Malik. This could affect the SRH vs RCB winning prediction in this edition of the Indian Premier League.

In the IPL 2022, both these teams are placed into the same group and slated to play two matches against each other. Overall, the Royal Challengers look like a better side and are likely to have an edge in SRH vs RCB prediction for the upcoming season.

SRH vs RCB Match Prediction

Sunrisers Hyderabad have had the upper hand in this rivalry against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The two teams have fought each other in 19 completed matches, out of which, SRH have claimed 11 compared to 8 wins by RCB.

The history suggests SRH could be favorites in the SRH vs RCB match prediction. We will factor in some other details to see if it holds true.

RCB’s overall auction performance wasn’t great despite them bagging some quality players. Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel cost them a significant amount. Josh Hazlewood and Dinesh Karthik were good deals for them.

Their most criticized signing was Faf du Plessis, who isn’t quite suited in that batting line-up.

SRH have won 58% of matches against RCB.

Cricket Betting

SRH brought in some terrific players such as Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram, and Washington Sundar, all of whom are likely to start in the playing XI. Getting Kartik Tyagi and Rahul Tripathi was a job well done.

SRH brought back their seam bowling duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan as well.

The upcoming IPL T20 edition will be played entirely in Maharashtra at four venues, which will be neutral venues for both RCB and SRH.

As such the RCB vs SRH match prediction could be a tough one to predict with both teams having no distinct advantage in this edition of the Indian Premier League.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, IPL 2021.

As for the IPL 2022 squads, RCB doesn’t have a great complimentary batting line-up with du Plessis, Kohli, and Karthik being suspect against leg-spin. But SRH doesn’t quite have the quality to exploit this weakness.

RCB’s bowling attack of Siraj, Hazlewood, Hasaranga and Harshal Patel looks pretty solid.

SRH have several support players but the lack of proven T20 superstars could be their downfall. Williamson, Markram and Pooran will need to carry the weight. In the bowling department, they have decent seam bowling options in Bhuvneshwar, Natarajan, and Tyagi.

SRH may have the history on their side but looking at current squads, RCB should be slight favorites in the IPL T20 match prediction for SRH vs RCB in the upcoming season.

SRH to play without David Warner and Rashid Khan this season.

Cricket Betting

While SRH could not make up quite for the big void created by superstar playing XI candidates David Warner and Rashid Khan, RCB had the huge loss of AB de Villiers to cope with and brought in Faf du Plessis, his South Africa teammate, and childhood friend, to make up for it. 

When thinking about your SRH vs RCB match prediction, it is important to remember what happened the last time these teams played each other in India: in 2018 and 2019.

We have had two very different types of games that the Sunrisers have hosted over the past two years. We saw a low-scoring game in 2018, a huge score for the Sunrisers in 2019. But, RCB beat SRH by 4 wickets in the last match that was played between these two IPL teams in India in 2019.
