Sunrisers Hyderabad:

They have won their last four games. The key to their success has been the fact that they have carried a good momentum throughout the season.

The inclusion of Alex Hales has made the team look stronger. They are likely to go into this match with an unchanged XI.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

They have tried everything this season, but nothing has come together so far. They might have to go into this game without a single change as none of the players have really performed this year. Parthiv Patel who came into the team in the last game scored a good half century in an otherwise pale performance from his team. The loss in this game would mean they won't qualify this season to the qualifiers.

Pitch: The Hyderabad pitch has been a bit slow this season, but runs have still been scored, though not in plenty. We can expect a good balance between the bat and the ball going into this match.

Weather: It will slightly cloudy with little chances of rains, but otherwise we should not have a problem.
