Injury and Availability News
All eyes will be on Navdeep Saini to see whether he features in the crucial match or not. Saini sustained a thumb injury and did not feature in the match against MI. If Saini is declared fit he is expected to come back in the squad and be their go-to bowler.
For the Sunrisers there are injury concerns to Vijay Shankar and Wriddhiman Saha and they might have to change their winning combination of the last match. Shankar has now been ruled out of IPL 2020 due to his injury.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: Top Fantasy Picks
David Warner: The SRH skipper led from the front with the bat in the previous fixture and is expected to do the same against RCB. In a crunch match, SRH wants Warner to fire as when he scores runs his side invariably wins.
Rashid Khan: The most prominent match-winner of SRH, Rashid Khan needs to be at his best in the must-win match. The champion spinner has been accurate and consistent in the last few matches and he will be keen to spin a web around the star-studded batting of RCB.
Devdutt Padikkal: The RCB opener has been in terrific batting form throughout the IPL 2020 season. When Padikkal clicks it automatically takes the pressure off Kohli and De Villiers. After his brilliant knock of 74 in the last match, he should be included in your fantasy side.
Virat Kohli: The captain of RCB has already churned out over 400 runs in IPL 2020. Kohli is a big match player and will be a big wicket for SRH as he will be keen after missing out in the last match. Kohli should be an automatic selection in your squad considering his consistent batting form.
