SRH vs RCB IPL Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips & Playing 11 Updates for Today’s IPL Match – Sept 21st, 2020
One of the most awaited clashes in the tournament kick-starts the week as former IPL champions Sunrisers Hyderabad take on the star-studded Royal Challengers Bangalore in Match 3 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
There is a new vibe about the current RCB side heading into the season. For starters, they have changed personnel at the helm with the duo of Mike Hesson and Simon Katich joining hands with Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
The move has already seen an evident shift in ideology with a horses-for-courses approach being preached at the IPL Auction. However, the IPL’s move to the UAE wasn’t something that was envisioned, although RCB still look well-equipped for a good campaign in the Gulf nation.
Like RCB, the Sunrisers also have a new coach in Trevor Bayliss, with David Warner taking charge as captain once again. Apart from a few acquisitions, the squad is largely settled with the likes of Rashid Khan, and Jonny Bairstow set to don the orange jersey.
The Sunrisers will ideally fancy their chances against RCB, given the latter’s perennial worries in the bowling department. The duo of Warner and Bairstow would have good memories against RCB, especially after their rampant double-century stand in Hyderabad last year.
Both teams have traded blows in the past with the head-to-head record reading 8-6 in favour of SRH. With some of the best T20 players set for their first taste of IPL 2020 action, we should be in for a cracking encounter at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday.
SRH vs RCB Head to Head Records: The Sportsrush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the third match of IPL 2020.
The third match of the ongoing 13th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai tomorrow.
Sunrisers and Royal Challengers, who finished at the fourth and the last position on the points table in IPL 2019 respectively, will be playing their first match of this season.
Other than playing under David Warner once again, Hyderabadi fans and team management would also be excited with respect to the presence of some supremely talented domestic Indian players in their squads. With a couple of spots up for grabs in their middle-order, expect these players to get a longer run at SRH.

A decent batting track is expected at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday with the ball coming on to the bat fairly well. However, it could be a touch on the slower side with this being the second match in two days at this venue.
The powerplay overs are going to be crucial with spin expected to play a major role in the middle phase. Dew should also have a say in the proceedings with both sides looking to chase on winning the toss.
160 should be a competitive total with the conditions not likely to change much during the game.
