Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) takes on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in match 30 of IPL 2024 on Monday, April 15. The match starts at 7.30 pm IST. This is the first meeting between the two sides this season. 

SRH have won their previous two games since their loss to GT. They have been one of the two teams so far to defeat Chennai Super Kings as well.

The players are in form and they have played with intent so far in the season. They have a balanced side with enough depth in batting and bowling. In the previous game against the Punjab Kings, they managed to defend 182.

There are areas that they can work on and fielding is one such area. Skipper Pat Cummins took a brilliant catch in the last match but there were three catches dropped in the final over as well.
