Another day, another IPL game. This time, Royal Challengers Bangalore are hosting Hyderabad Sunrisers. RCB have just a single day to recover from their disastrous defeat at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders. The star-studded Royal Challengers were bundled out for a mere 49 runs in 9.4 overs. No batsmen reached double figures. It was school-ground-like performance from a bunch of grown-ups. They travel from Kolkata to Bangalore and turn up for a game in the next day. Waiting for are Hyderabad Sunrisers, a good all-round team. Nobody would envy the situation Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle are in. But you can make some profit out of it through betting.

Royal Challengers Bangalore – Preview
Batting was their supposed strong suite, and bowling the weak link. It was said that RCB’s batting is strong enough to mask their bowling fragilities. As things turned out, their bowling seems to be doing reasonably well. But batting has been a disaster at times. The return of Kohli and de Villiers has not solved their batting problems. If the recent past is any indication, it is not wise to punt in favor of them in cricket betting.
But that is where you have to be smarter. Players like Kohli and de Villiers are among that rare breed of people whose performance is fueled by the anger. After their horrific performance in Kolkata, they must be gearing up to show the world what they are capable of. Sunrisers should be ready to face the onslaught. Do not write off the chances of RCB. The wounded lions will hit back strongly.
Hyderabad Sunrisers – Preview
Sunrisers are third in the points table. They might look doing well. However, eight points from seven matches do not justify the strength of the team. They have not gelled well as a team – like Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knightriders did. The onus is on Sunrisers’ bowlers. If they can contain the ‘angry’ RCB batsmen, the game is theirs.
Prediction for cricket betting: Expect a grand show from Kohli and ABD, which will help RCB win in style.
