SRH vs RCB: 65th IPL match prediction
SRH vs RCB: This year's IPL's 65th game, which also happens to be SunRisers Hyderabad's final home game, will have them taking against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Only four of the 12 matches the Hyderabad-based franchise played during the 16th season of the Indian Premier League were victories, hence the season did not go well for them. On the other hand, RCB just defeated Rajasthan Royals in a decisive match, and given their recent success and potential to advance to the playoffs, we anticipate a challenging matchup between the RCB and the SunRisers.
SRH vs RCB: Match details
Match: SRH vs RCB 65th Match (Indian Premier League 2023)

Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad
SRH vs RCB: Match Overview
Sunrisers Hyderabad has seen both good and poor luck in clusters. It recovered from a two-match defeat with five straight victories last season, but an identical number of straight losses prevented it from reaching the playoffs. The 2016 champion was unable to reach the playoffs in the next two versions despite making it to the last four in five straight seasons.
As Washington Sundar can bat as late as position eight, Hyderabad has excellent batting depth. The team now has greater star power and middle and top-order alternatives thanks to the additions of Mayank Agarwal and Harry Brook. Markram gives SRH a solid foundation and can deliver stability with a lineup that features multiple power hitters like Rahul Tripathi, Abdul Samad, Heinrich Klaasen, and Brook.
Sunrisers' PowerPlay batting and death-overs pitching both have a number of flaws. Although Abhishek and Agarwal have a potent left-right opening combination, they lack aggressive power in the PowerPlay. Agarwal has managed to amass just over 121 runs in the PowerPlay section, but Abhishek Sharma strikes in the first six overs. Hyderabad will rely on T. Natarajan, who obtains wickets but may give up runs towards the end of the innings since Bhuvneshwar Kumar's death-bowling prowess is waning and Umran Malik and Marco Jansen lack experience in that area of the game.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
- B. de Villiers, Chris Gayle, and Virat Kohli made up the core of the RCB's batting order for a while, scoring almost all of the team's runs. However, this disparity took a turn at the major auction in February of last year when the RCB decided to make investments in local players from India including Mahipal Lomror, Rajat Patidar, Shahbaz Ahmed, and Anuj Rawat to tighten the batting. While the consistency of a finisher is unpredictable, Dinesh Karthik's mesmerizing 360-degree style provides firepower further down, and his flamboyance helps relieve pressure from players like Glenn Maxwell and Virat Kohli.
Royal Challengers Bangalore paid a premium price of Rs. 7 crores to acquire Du Plessis. The IPL 2022 captain was then chosen for him.
The former captain of South Africa had never served as the IPL team's captain before. With the Chennai Super Kings, the flashy right-hander has won the IPL four times. His 633 runs were essential to CSK's successful 2021 championship defense. Du Plessis guided RCB to the IPL 2022 playoffs in his maiden season as captain, where it fell to Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 2. Du Plessis is a strong fielder in addition to his reputation as a captain and his consistent hitting.

SRH vs RCB: Toss prediction
In the current season of the Indian Premier League, this will be the first time that these two clubs would face off against one another. But if we look at their matches in the most recent large competition, each side ended up taking home one throw. Given that the forthcoming game will be played at the SRH's home stadium, we believe they might win the toss. The toss-winning team will probably choose to bat first as it is the wise choice.

SRH vs RCB: Match Prediction
The Bengaluru-based team battled back after experiencing an up-and-down IPL season, and they are presently positioned only one spot outside the top four. To secure a spot in the qualifications, we anticipate them to put up a fierce struggle against their rivals. On the other side, the SRH team is on the edge of being eliminated from the competition, therefore this victory will keep them in the running. However, we cannot overlook how admirably the team led by Faf defeated the Royals on May 14 in Jaipur. Given this, we predict Royal Challengers Bangalore will win this game and grab the lead.
