In the 41st match of the IPL 2024, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) will be taking on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The match is set to take place on the 25th of April 2024 at 7:30 PM (IST) in Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Both teams have had a contrasting journey in the league so far. While SRH has 5 wins in 7 matches, RCB has won just one of their 8 games. SRH is placed in the third spot while RCB is in the bottom spot in the points table.

In their previous encounter, SRH beat DC comfortably by 67 runs. The brilliant knocks from Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, and Shahbaz Ahmed helped them to post 266 runs on the board. T Natarajan’s spell with the ball helped SRH to defend the total successfully. On the other hand, RCB lost to KKR by just a run. Chasing 223, RCB’s Will Jacks and Rajat Patidar batted well. Towards the end, Karn Sharma’s cameo went in vain as KKR clinched a thrilling win in Eden Gardens.

In their previous matchup, RCB and SRH broke a lot of records. Most aggregate (549) in a match was registered. The highest score in the IPL history (287) was registered by SRH. RCB scored 262 runs while chasing, the most for a unit while chasing the total. A similar outing can be expected from both sides in Hyderabad given the quality of the batters and the nature of the pitch. With RCB nearly out of the playoffs race, they would be hoping to put on a show in each of their matches.

Here is the strongest probable predicted XI of RCB for the 41st match of the IPL 2024:

RCB are likely to go with the same opening pair. Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli have been good for RCB. While they have not fired as a pair, the experienced duo has fired individually. It’s probably the reason behind their failure in the season so far. Make no mistake, the duo has done well in the league so far. Both batters have played some good innings. They are capable of winning matches for their side. Unfortunately, RCB has not been able to play well as a team.

Faf Du Plessis can smash the bowlers from his end. The star batter can take the game away from the opposition in a matter of a few overs. However, against spin, he struggles a bit. Virat Kohli anchors the innings well. Early in the match, the star batter can hit some boundaries to put pressure on the opponents. With the progression of the innings, he can adapt to the situation well. If the duo gets going, RCB has a good chance of winning the match against SRH.
