In the second Indian Premier League Qualifier which would be the eliminator of IPL 2020 series, Sunrisers Hyderabad will go head to head against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Dubai on 6 November 2020.
In the final, the winner of this game will immediately book a spot for themselves, while the losing team of this match would have a second chance to claim the coveted spot in the finals against the winner of the eliminator.
PREVIEW FOR DREAM11 FANTASY:
Thanks to their fabulous win against Delhi Capitals earlier in the week, the 2016 IPL champions, Sunrisers Hyderabad, are still in contention for a playoff spot.
David Warner and the SRH team management made a challenging decision by dropping Jonny Bairstow for more continuity in the middle order, a ploy that served them well in their previous match. SRH can see a crucial victory in Sharjah, a venue that this season in the IPL has not been too good to them so far, with Rashid Khan seemingly at the height of his powers.
Their opponents, Royal Challengers Bangalore, are one of the hot favourites to clinch a playoff spot this weekend. In seven IPL 2020 matches, Virat Kohli and co have already emerged victorious. Riding on the exploits of Devdutt Padikkal and AB de Villiers, this season in the IPL, RCB were impressive, though their captain Virat Kohli would like to join the party sooner rather than later.
The RCB bowling was really strong in the IPL 2020. Chris Morris added some much-needed depth and consistency to the side, while Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar continued to impress in the middle overs. However, they will need to be at their best against David Warner, who has a great record against RCB and will be trying to make up for a rare defeat in his last IPL game.
RCB will have fond memories of their win over SRH in the reverse fixture earlier in IPL 2020, but they will be wary of a wounded Warner and co. this time around. Even though SRH is struggling to stay alive in IPL 2020, for the first time since 2016, RCB is targeting a playoff spot. With a lot at stake for both teams in this game, we could be in for another cracking game in IPL 2020.
