Two teams with a very enthusiastic fan base in the South of India are expected to open their IPL 2020 season against each other. The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will lock the horns in Dubai as they try to get off to a winning start. The match will be played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai from 7:30 PM IST onwards.
PREVIEW FOR DREAM11 FANTASY:
SRH finished third in the IPL Group in 2019 but lost to the Delhi Capitals in the Eliminator. It’s going to be a struggle for the team to make the playoffs again as each team comes back stronger. RCB has never won the IPL, but it has reached the IPL final three times in the past. With Virat Kohli as your captain, you do not get any credit for finishing second and so the pressure is on RCB to deliver in 2020.
Taking a look at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the coming week and the average maximum daytime temperature will be about 39 ° C, with a high temperature of 40 ° C forecast in the afternoon of Saturday 19th. The average minimum temperature will be 29 ° C, dropping to its lowest on the morning of Monday 21st at 27 ° C. The next week will stay largely dry. The winds are expected to be all in all to be moderate.
The pitch has been good for batsmen, but the spin bowlers often trouble them on this ground.
