Here is the COC Predicted Playing XIs for the RCB v SRH match in Abu Dhabi.


The Virat Kohli-led team cannot be happier after qualifying for the playoffs for the second consecutive year in the IPL and finally, things have fallen in place for the red army. Kohli, Padikkal, Maxwell, and De Villiers have been the backbone of the RCB batting, while Chahal, Siraj, and foreign recruits have handled the bowling better than many.

Their Achilles heel has been their all-rounder as both Kyle Jamieson and Dan Christian have been woefully out of form, with both the bat and the ball. It seems that RCB will be happier to bring in a genuine batter in the XI for Christian, who has gotten a few games but hasn’t performed.

They can look at Tim David and give him a couple of games as they prepare for the playoffs.


Sunrisers Hyderabad is suffering from their worst outing in IPL history as they have won just 2 games in the tournament from 12 played and have just 4 points. They have tried everything from changing their opening combination to the captain to bringing in young blood to replace the aging stars and nothing has worked for them.

Rashid Khan | SRH TwitterThis match will be another chance for them to play for pride and try and gather 2 more points in their kitty as they aim to finish the tournament on a high. Jason Roy has done good at the top, while the young guns in Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, and Umran Malik have made quite an impression.

Rashid Khan has been as good as one can get, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, and others have been out of form and that has been one of the reasons for the misfortunes.

Virat Kohli (C), Devdutt Padikkal, KS Bharat (WK), Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Tim David, Shahbaz Ahmed, George Garton, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal
