Royal Challengers Bangalore have been the x-factor team in the tournament
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have the quality in their line-up this time around and after being at the bottom half of the table for too long, this is their chance to seal qualification for the play-offs and make a strong title bid. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers form the core of the RCB line-up, but this time they are surrounded by more support strength, notably by Devdutt Padikkal at the top of the order. RCB also have a good bowling core this time around with Chris Morris and Washington Sundar stepping up to aid Yuzvendra Chahal. Their odds of beating Sunrisers Hyderabad stand at 1.71
Sunrisers Hyderabad had a pretty good season in 2019, but a title win has eluded them and the possible reasons for that have come to the fore this time around. Under David Warner this season, SRH have blown hot and cold and the results have swung back and forth without any real direction. They are strong in the bowling department, but against RCB their odds stand at 2.05.

Keep an eye on…
David Warner: After a low scoring start to the season, David Warner has started churning runs out for fun like he always does. Unlike before, he has also found a better tempo to his innings and his last two knocks, Warner was at his supreme best when batting in the powerplay. Expect another big one from him.
TIP: David Warner has found form and a decent tempo and has odds of 6.00 to win the Player of the Match award.
Virat Kohli: He has had a rather quiet season by his standards and will be itching to hit the straps before the play-offs begin. A quality player, Kohli will know that the team banks on him in the middle overs where he has been listless this time around.
