Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will play Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in match 65 of the IPL 2023 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. This game will be a must-win match for Bangalore to stay in contention for the playoffs race ahead of other teams like Punjab, Rajasthan, and Kolkata.
Although Hyderabad got knocked out from the IPL 2023 playoffs race, they would still like to win their remaining games and finish this season on a good note.
RCB would be very high on Josh to play this game after a 112-run victory in their previous match against RR, while SRH is coming after two back-to-back losses in this contest, so it will be interesting to see how they would be facing this Bengaluru side who are riding high on confidence.
