SunRisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru, IPL 2024: Predicted Playing XI Of Both Teams

SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) will host Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in match 41 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday. Led by Pat Cummins, SunRisers Hyderabad have been one of the most dominant teams in IPL 2024 so far. They are currently on a four-match winning streak. With five wins and two losses, SRH are currently placed third in the IPL 2024 standings with 10 points from seven matches. On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bengaluru have struggled in the ongoing edition of the IPL.

The Faf du Plessis-led RCB have secured just a solitary victory in eight games this season and are languishing at the bottom of the IPL 2024 standings with two points.

Ahead of another crucial IPL 2024 clash, we look at the predicted XIs of both sides.

RCB Predicted XI

Faf du Plessis (captain)

RCB captain Faf du Plessis has scored 239 runs in eight games this season at an average of 29.88 and a strike rate of 152.22. He will need to score big against SRH if they are to end their losing streak.

Virat Kohli

Former RCB skipper Virat Kohli has been the leading run-scorer in IPL 2024. The stylish batter has amassed 379 runs in eight matches at a strike rate of 150.39, including one century and two fifties to his name. RCB will once again rely on Virat to put a good score on the board.

Will Jacks

Hard-hitting Will Jacks slammed his first IPL fifty against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their last game. Chasing 223, Jacks smashed 55 off just 32 balls, laced with four fours and five sixes. He can also contribute with his off-spin and the England cricketer will look to continue his form against SRH.

Rajat Patidar
Flamboyant Rajat Patidar returned to form with a blistering half-century at the Eden Gardens in their previous outing. Batting at No.4, Patidar slammed a 23-ball 52 to almost help his side pull off a miraculous run chase. Patidar could play a crucial role for RCB in their upcoming encounter.

Cameron Green

Australian star all-rounder Cameron Green has failed to impress in IPL 2024. The 24-year-old has scored just 74 runs and bagged four wickets in six matches this season. Green could be given another opportunity to prove his worth against SRH but will need to come good soon.

Mahipal Lomror

Middle-order batter Mahipal Lomror is due a big score in the ongoing IPL. The southpaw has scored 73 runs in five games at an impressive strike rate of 202.77 and will look to make his presence felt against the SunRisers in Hyderabad.

Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper)

Wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik has been one of the standout performers for RCB this season. Karthik has already played quite a few impactful knocks, having accumulated 251 runs in eight matches at a strike rate of 196.09. He will aim to continue his scintillating form against SRH.

Karn Sharma

Karn Sharma was economical in a high-scoring encounter at the Eden Gardens. Despite not picking up a wicket, Sharma finished with figures of none for 33 against a star-studded KKR batting line-up. RCB will need the experienced leg-spinner to provide them with few breakthroughs in the middle overs on Thursday.

Mohammed Siraj

Mohammed Siraj has been expensive in IPL 2024 so far. The right-arm pacer has conceded over 10 runs per over this season. However, Siraj has a knack of picking wickets, having scalped five wickets in seven games so far and will look to produce a good performance at his home ground in Hyderabad.

Lockie Ferguson

New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson has played just two games for RCB this season. The right-arm fast bowler has claimed just three wickets so far and Ferguson could play a key role in restricting the SRH batters on Thursday.

Yash Dayal

Left-arm pacer Yash Dayal has been the leading wicket-taker for RCB in IPL 2024. Dayal has scalped seven wickets in just as many games. However, the 26-year-old has been a bit expensive having conceded nearly 10 runs per over and will need to be more economical.

SRH Predicted XI

Travis Head

SRH opening batter Travis Head hammered 89 runs off just 32 balls against DC in their last game. The swashbuckling batter has been in sensational form this season, having accumulated 324 runs in six matches, including a 41-ball 102 against RCB and Head could once again be the game-changer for SRH.

Abhishek Sharma

Abhishek Sharma has hogged the limelight with his incredible hitting this season. The southpaw has formed an incredible opening partnership with Head for SRH in IPL 2024. He has already scored 257 runs in seven games at a strike rate of 215.97 and will look to provide another blitzkrieg start against struggling RCB.

Aiden Markram

SRH middle-order batter Aiden Markram has scored 160 runs in seven games in IPL 2024. The South African T20I captain smashed an unbeaten 32 runs off just 17 balls against RCB to help SRH post a record 287/3 in their last meeting and he will look to continue his good form against Bengaluru.

Heinrich Klaasen (wicketkeeper)

Heinrich Klaasen has been one of the best finishers in the ongoing IPL. The 32-year-old wicketkeeper-batter has amassed 268 runs in seven games at a strike rate of 198.51 while also maintaining an average of 53.60. Klaasen scored a 31-ball 67 in their last encounter against RCB earlier and will look to score big on Thursday.

Nitish Reddy

Nitish Reddy has been a quality inclusion in SRH’s playing XI this season. The 20-year-old has been impressive, having scored 115 runs and bagged three wickets in four matches so far. He will look to contribute with both bat and ball against RCB.

Shahbaz Ahmed

SRH all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed registered his first IPL fifty against DC in their last game. Batting at No.6, Shahbaz slammed an unbeaten 59 off just 29 balls to power SRH to 266/7. Apart from scoring 129 runs, he has picked up three wickets with his left-arm spin and will look to continue his good all-round form.

Abdul Samad

Abdul Samad is another hard-hitting batter in SRH’s playing XI. In his limited opportunities, Samad has amassed 119 runs in seven matches this season at a strike rate of 216.36 and can also contribute with his leg spin.

Pat Cummins (Captain)

SRH captain Pat Cummins has continued to impress as a leader in IPL 2024. Apart from his leadership qualities, Cummins has bagged nine wickets in seven matches at an economy of eight. The Australia skipper can also play a cameo with the bat if required.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar

SRH’s star pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced a brilliant spell of 1/33 against DC in their previous outing. Bhuvneshear dismissed David Warner to provide an early breakthrough for SRH. Having scalped four wickets in seven matches this season, SRH will expect more from Bhuvi against RCB.

Mayank Markande

Talented Mayank Markande has been a wicket-taker for SRH in IPL 2024. The 26-year-old leg-spinner has already bagged seven wickets in six matches so far and could play a key role against RCB at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Thangarasu Natarajan

Left-arm pacer T Natarajan has been one of the standout bowlers for SRH this season. He has already claimed 10 wickets in five matches at an economy of 8.50 and will look to add to his wickets tally against RCB on Thursday.
