Probable Playing XIs 

Royal Challengers Bangalore has been qualified for playoffs but their aim will be to finish on top two as they will come with strongest XI in this game. Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli will open for RCB in this game. However, Daniel Christian failed to impress with his all-rounder abilities so Wanindu Hasaranga can replace him as a bowling all-rounder. In the bowling department, Harshal Patel and Mohammad Siraj are consistently taking wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal will lead the spin bowling attack along with Shahbaz Ahmed and Glenn Maxwell. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad will play for pride in these games so they will look to give chances to young players. Jason Roy will open with Wriddhiman Saha in this game. Kane Williamson has been failed to score big in this season so he will aim to bounce back against RCB. Jason Holder and Rashid Khan will be key all-rounders along with Abdul Samad. There will be no change in bowling department, as all bowlers did well in given opportunity during the last game.
