Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore will meet in the sixth match of the IPL 2021, having had contrasting starts to the season. Virat Kohli’s team won the first match of the tournament, defeating the defending champions Mumbai Indians. Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Glenn Maxwell shone in their first game together, while Harshal Patel did the talking with the ball.
All of this being said, RCB’s accuracy has been a concern in the past, and Kohli will improve it this time. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, got off to a poor start against Kolkata Knight Riders. Their batting unit did well, but chasing a nearly 190-run target in Chennai was always going to be difficult. They’ll try to recover from their loss.
On Matchday, Chennai should be sunny, with just a few clouds in the sky. The average temperature should be around 29 degrees Celsius, and dew will play a second inning.
The MA Chidambaram Stadium’s wicket has provided some competitive cricket despite being on the slower side.
There haven’t been many turns on offer, and while cutters and slower deliveries have succeeded, batters will have no trouble scoring runs once they get their eye in.

Sunrisers Hyderabad 175+, Royal Challengers Bangalore 170+
Both teams seem to be well-matched, and there are some exciting player fights to look out for.
SRH’s bowling appears to be marginally better than RCB’s despite their poor performance in the first game, and they should open their account with a narrow victory over Virat Kohli’s men.
