In today’s IPL 2024 showdown at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) clashed with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). SRH emerged victorious, clinching a 25-run win as RCB fell short of the 287-run target set before them.

Opting to bowl first after winning the toss, RCB faced off against SRH in what marked the sixth match for Hyderabad and the seventh for Bengaluru in the tournament. While Hyderabad has secured victories in 3 out of 5 matches, RCB has managed just 1 win out of the six matches played thus far.

RCB finds itself in a tough spot, grappling with a challenging phase that demands an elevated performance. Despite Virat Kohli’s commendable efforts, the batting lineup, for the most part, has been lackluster. However, there’s a glimmer of hope as captain Faf du Plessis rediscovered his form in the last match, contributing a brisk 61 off 40 balls. Despite their struggles, RCB’s bowlers have proven costly in each of their losses.

In contrast, SRH recently secured a triumph against Punjab Kings, successfully defending a total of 182 runs in Mullanpur. Despite facing frequent wicket losses, Nitish Kumar Reddy’s exceptional performance guided Hyderabad to a score of 182, showcasing the team’s resilience amidst their struggles.
