Bengaluru: RCB captain Virat Kohli wins the toss and opts to bowl against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) is all set to face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad at 4 PM, today (March 31).

RCB will be itching to register a win after two straight defeats against Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians respectively.

This is the third match for RCB and SRH. SRH is currently in the fifth position and has registered one win against Rajasthan Royals. RCB is in the seventh position and is yet to taste victory this season.

In terms of changes for RCB, there is a probability that Colin de Grandhomme would be replaced by Tim Southee to utilise the skills of the ace pacer.

SRH will most likely go into this match with the same team as the previous game.

Here are the probable playing 11 of RCB:

Virat Kohli (Captain), Parthiv Patel (wicket keeper), Moeen Ali, AB de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Tim Southee, Navdeep Saini, Washigton Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammad Siraj.


Probable playing 11 of SRH:

Kane Williamson (Captain), David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
