The SRH and RCB rivalry has been interesting over the years since 2016 and both teams have less batting depth comparatively as they depend heavily on their top-order batting lineup. RCB’s main bowler Yuzvendra Chahal being out of form has been a concern for their team but a better performance is expected from him at Chepauk ground in the upcoming matches.
