IPL 2021, RCB vs SRH: Herschelle Patel should increase his lead in the Purple Cape race.© BCCI / IPL
Royal Challengers Bangalore have already qualified for the IPL 2021 playoffs and Sunrisers Hyderabad will remain last in the table despite winning the remaining two matches. RCB still have a lot to play for when they face Kane Williamson’s team in the 52nd match of the Indian Premier League 2021 season at the Saeed Cricket Ground in Abu Dhabi. The RCB still has a chance to record the first two places, but it will only happen if Virat Kohli’s team wins their remaining two matches and loses to Chennai Super Kings Punjab Kings in the final of the league stage.
With the exception of the first two places, RCB wants to continue their winning streak at the end of the competition business. After two consecutive defeats, RCB won three consecutive wins to advance to the playoffs.
The Bangalore system does not want to give up that winning habit, especially when things seem to be falling apart.
The bowlers, led by Glenn Maxwell and Purple Cap holder Herschelle Patel in particular, were immense. Maxwell’s fantastic format is a huge plus for RCB in the UAE. The ‘Big Show’ he is often referred to has been true to his nickname and has hosted some big shows to guide RCB’s batting responsibility in the middle overs.
Add Herschel’s expertise in death, and the RCB is a formidable unit that will beat anyone in their day.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, want to get IPL 2021 out of their system as soon as possible. It was a dream come true for the owners of Hyderabad. They have won just two of 12 games this season.
David Warner loses his captaincy and looks on from the outside after being dropped from the playing XI, making Australia worse.
The odds for the SRH for the Orange Army during the turbulent season are slim.
