The Royal Challengers Bangalore will be looking to continue the momentum after winning their opening match. As my best bet I am backing the Royal Challengers to take the victory with AB de Villiers to get among the runs.

- Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Jonny Bairstow scored 55 runs in his last IPL match.
- Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Manish Pandey scored 61 runs in his last IPL match.

Head to Head
Sunrisers Hyderabad have won three of their last five matches against the Royal Challengers Bangalore including both last season. Their last match saw the Sunrisers win a tight match by six wickets with two balls to spare.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Form
Sunrisers Hyderabad got their campaign off to a losing start when they suffered a narrow 10-run defeat to the Kolkata Knight Riders in Chennai.
The Sunrisers bowlers struggled to contain the Knight Riders until Rashid Khan came on. He took 2-24 in his four overs and will be their biggest threat yet again.
The Knight Riders scored 187 batting first, a target the Sunrisers looked like they could chase down. After two early wickets, Manish Pandey (61) and Jonny Bairstow (55) put on a 92-run partnership but the batsmen after them failed to captilise.
Eventually the Sunrisers ran out of overs, ending on 177-5, 10 runs short of their target.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News
The Sunrisers shouldn’t be looking to make too many changes to their side. New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson is still expected to be out as he continues his recovery from injury.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Form
The Royal Bangalore Challengers started their 2021 Indian Premier League season with a crucial win over tournament favourites, Mumbai Indians.
Harshal Patel bowled an incredible spell in which he took 5-27 to restrict Mumbai to 159 runs in their allotted overs. It wasn’t the best batting track so the chase was always going to be a tight one.
Virat Kohli opened the batting and scored 33 runs but it was Glenn Maxwell (39) and AB de Villiers (48) that got the Royal Challengers into a winning position.
A mini collapse towards the end made the game closer than it should have been but the Challengers managed to get the winning runs off the final delivery.
The two wicket win will give the star-studded Royal Bangalore Challengers plenty of confidence going into their second fixture.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News
Adam Zampa did not crack the nod in the opening match but could get an opportunity here. Much will depend on the pitch and if it will be suitable to Zampa.
The issue is who he will replace, with the most likely candidate, fellow Aussie, Dan Christian.
