After finishing 4th in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the SunRisers Hyderabad are back in the game for IPL season 2020. The team, headed by TikTok champion David Warner will begin their campaign this season against Royal Challengers Bangalore, headed by Indian captain Virat Kohli.
The teams will go head-to-head against each other on Monday, September 21 at the Dubai International Stadium. The SRH vs RCB IPL 2020 fixture is scheduled to begin at 7.30 pm IST.
While SunRisers Hyderabad have some star players in their squad this year and are willing to start off their campaign with a victory, RCB will try their best to change their image of being under-performers by winning the first match on Day 3 of IPL 2020.
Needless to say, both the teams have world-class batsmen in their kitty. If compared, the Sunrisers lack a bit when it comes to depth, while RCB might have a tough time with its current bowling order.
In the past, SRH have won the IPL trophy once in 2016, while finishing off as finalist in 2018. On the other hand, while RCB have not lifted the champions trophy in any IPL season, they have managed to reach the finals three times in previous editions.

SRH’s batting line-up has David Warner, Kane Williamson and Jonny Bairstow. While the players have been consistent so far, there is no Indian player in the top batting squad. The team is better known for their bowling squad, including players. However, swing bowlers like Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Sandeep Sharma might not be able to perform well on the pitch.
