RCB vs SRH IPL 2022 top picks

RCB – Dinesh Karthik has been the standout performer for Bangalore this season, playing a decisive knock in almost every fixture. Playing a finisher’s role, Karthik has been unbeaten in six of the seven innings.

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s top order hasn’t had the best of seasons this time, which has put pressure on the middle order.

However, along with Dinesh Karthik, Glenn Maxwell has managed to steady the ship and is another top pick in this fixture.

Among the bowlers, Josh Hazlewood has led the unit with his fierce pace that has fetched him eight wickets in three games, including a 4-fer against CSK in the last match.

SRH – The onus of scoring will once again be Rahul Tripathi, who has flourished in his role as the No. 3 batter. The experienced Hyderabad batter has already amassed 205 runs in IPL 2022.

Meanwhile, the pace battery of Umran Malik, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan can trouble the RCB batters, considering how conducive the Brabourne pitch has been for pacers.

RCB vs SRH IPL 2022 prediction

Royal Challengers Bangalore have bookies’ confidence and go into the match as the favourites. The batting depth that Dinesh Karthik and Shahbaz Ahmed have given the team has worked wonders for them.  

A win for RCB can catapult them to the top of the table if Gujarat falter in the first match of the day.

Meanwhile, Kane Williamson’s SRH, although on a four-match winning streak, will have to be on point with their bowling against a team that boasts Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell.
