Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Match 52: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

Royal Challengers Bangalore is the third team to qualify for the play-offs in this edition, after Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals. With 16 points, they are currently in third place in the standings. They have a good chance of finishing in the top two if they win their final two games, but they may still have to rely on the Chennai Super Kings’ result. Three wins in a row have given them a massive boost in confidence, and they’d like to keep that momentum going in the remaining games.

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s fortunes are deteriorating in this leg. They were the first team to be eliminated from the play-off race, and it has now been confirmed that they would finish last. Hyderabad would try to sabotage RCB’s celebrations. Batting has been a significant problem for them, and their batters will need to step up in the final two games.

 

Weather
In Abu Dhabi, it should be a sunny evening with a temperature of around 34 degrees Celsius.

 

Pitch
Abu Dhabi is the highest-scoring track in the UAE leg, with RR-CSK being a rare game controlled by batters. We might expect a similar wicket for this match, with a score of approximately 180 likely to be competitive.
