Sunrisers Hyderabad will be up against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the sixth fixture of IPL 2021.
Sunrisers Hyderabad had an underwhelming start to their IPL 2021 campaign.
Coming up against Kolkata Knight Riders in their first match, Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi took SRH bowlers to the sword.
Things got from bad to worse when David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha had to depart early during the run-chase.
While Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey's partnership did raise hopes, in the end, they fell 10 runs short of the mark.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, meanwhile, got off to a dream season opener.
Thanks to an inspired bowling performance from Harshal Patel which fetched him a fifer, RCB were able to keep Mumbai Indians batting unit in check.
Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell played solid knocks but in the end, it was the evergreen AB De Villiers who took them extremely close to the finishing line during the run-chase which was eventually finished off by Harshal Patel, the man of the night.
And as your put together your XI for the Dream 11 app, here's our squad for your ready reference.

Jonny Bairstow (9 Credits)
Jonny Bairstow got into his groove easily against Kolkata Knight Riders in the first match. He scored a 40-ball 55 and it was only after his dismissal that SRH's hopes ended in the last game.
Wriddhiman Saha (8.5 Credits)

Virat Kohli is the highest scorer in the Indian Premier League. He played the knock of an anchor in the last game, scoring 33 runs from 29 balls.
Abdul Samad (8 Credits)
Abdul Samad came out to bat pretty late but he looked so impressive that one could make a case that SRH would've won had he been promoted. With the help of two humongous sixes off Cummins, Samad scored an impressive 8-ball 19.
David Warner (10.5 Credits)
David Warner is the third-highest scorer in IPL history but had a rare failure against KKR in the first match. Warner has three 80+ scores in the last four List-A games he played before arriving in India.
